Weapons



   Below is a list of weapons that you collect, add to your arsenal and utilize in Half-Life 2.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Crowbar

The classic very first collected Half-Life [only melee] weapon has returned in Half-Life 2...with more detail, too!

Weapon Name:

Description:

Pistol

A silver, gray, futuristic like pistol that appears to shoot more accurately than the 9mm beretta pistol found in the original Half-Life. This gun is good for picking off small enemies like headcrabs from long distances.

Weapon Name:

Description:

.357 Magnum

The handy 6 round packing and beefy damage causing second handgun you'll find in Half-Life 2. Look out for one they are very useful weapons for handguns!

Weapon Name:

Description:

Shotgun

The Italian SPAS-12 modeled shotgun from the original Half-Life has returned in Half-Life 2, and is now more accurately based visually. It deals an substantial amount of damage, and it would be wise to only use it against dangerous and fast enemies at close to medium ranges, like the under-water zombie. It's alternate fire now fires just as fast as it's primary fire mode as well, but still spreads 2 pellets per shot.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Sub-Machine-Gun

Unlike the original Half-Life, HL2's SMG is based on an MP7. Unfortunately, it's coping damage and alternate firing mode is far to weak range wise and damage wise than to be as useful as in the original HL. But if you'd like an extra grenade launcher it's worth it.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Fragment Grenade

The fragment grenade has returned in Half-Life 2, differently modeled, but with the same conceptual strategy of attacking.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Pulse Rifle

One of the newer weapons in HL2, which is the closest you'll find to an assault rifle, the Pulse Rifle is one of the combine weapons. It's primary fire mode triggers a set of pulses of enhanced clips. It's alternate fire mode shoots out a super enhanced scientific dimenional "ball" that seems to phase away enemies at contact. Unfortunately, due to quickly chewing away ammo and low accuracy, this weapon isn't too great to use.

Description:

Alien Spore Globe

Also a newly introduced weapon of Half-life 2, the Alien Spore Globe is a Combine alien created weapon that when thrown allows you to control the Antlions.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Crossbow

As in the original Half-Life, this is an unrealistic "tranquilizer" like gun that allows you to very accurately but slowly snipe enemies and is a water based weapon, which means it works perfectly under-water. In HL2, there isn't much of a difference, other than the fact that it's detailed much greater and fires / reloads much slower.

Weapon Name:

Description:

RPG(Rocket Propelled Grenade) Launcher

The RPG Launcher hasn't changed much from the original Half-Life other then containing a more accurate automated-laser aiming tracker option and greater, grander detail. However, the laser aiming tracker can't be turned off now, which isn't neccessarily a bad thing.

Weapon Name:

Description:

Gravity Gun

This is probably the most useful weapon in HL2. The Gravity Gun, AKA "Zero Point Manipulator", is a weapon that allows you to physically control objects and fling them around at very pounding rates. It's a useful weapon for solving many physics based puzzles and for allowing you to escape out of very tight situations. There's two versions of this weapon, one orange one (shown here) that allows you to manipulate objects from a distance, and one blue one (not shown here) that using a special beam allows you to manipulate anything, but while causing damage.
