I have talked to Moo about this and it has to be "pre-cached" on the server... Just up to Neuro whenever he gets around to it.

To get the particles working, it requires sourcemod particle precache plugin installed on server end.

Are you able to find / link the mentioned plugin?

I believe that plug in is this one (https://mega.nz/#!mQZWxaYb!-Iraq5VkRpepwlRsBarYJAiB8s0Zk3I46PcOzTziMQs) from the rules of _p site, here's what they wrote with it.

We are also releasing an autoprecacher for particles which gives support for ‘maps/mapname_particles.txt’ (which is nonfunctional in CS:GO). This plugin is an extension over the previous particle precacher, and should precache particle systems stored within maps so long the mappers pack their particle manifest in the same way as it used to be in CS:S. Forced precache modes (using ! before a particle file path in the manifest) are not supported, so mappers will have to strip all their exclamation marks (!) from their paths within the manifest. Since all of our ports DO use the manifest files already, server admins will no longer need to add ‘sm_precache_particles’ to their bspconvars_whitelist.txt files. We recommend you still do, however, for maps not ported by us with uncaring mappers. The plugin will also help mappers trying to create maps of their own that make use of particles (through Alien Swarm’s editor) both for testing and simplifying what they have to do (not depending on an arbitrary command anymore)

if it's not that lol idk im stupid

As BeeJaay posted, they've released an updated version of their precacher plugin that will automatically do whats needed with maps containing the text files in them (i.e. their ported maps).

Their first release of the plugin is contained within their first map pack release here (https://rulesofp.wordpress.com/2014/08/09/first-official-map-pack-zombie-escape-map-pack-1/).

Edit: This is the page (https://rulesofp.wordpress.com/2015/10/19/81/) containing the mega link bj posted btw.

Does the precacher also contain a .sp file?

Yes, they've included the .sp file with it.
