A Soldier's Tale

As part of the HECU, you enter the Black Mesa Research Facility via an armoured personnel carrier.

It leaves you in a large warehouse-style building and your objective is nothing more than to stay alive and kill as many enemies as possible.

Good Luck!

Known bugs

  • ast_c02: Sometimes the scripted sequence scientist decides to disregard the sequence and run away from the aliens and towards the deadly laser. Does not affect gameplay or map progression though.
  • ast_c07: Sometimes the garg doesn't kill the first scientist, but does not affect anything.
  • ast_c07: Due to the map's geometry players and npcs can get stuck between the end portal and the ramp next to it, be careful.
