The Archer[2] is an alien cut from Half-Life. It can be found in the game files.

Overview[edit]

The Archer's model has the size of a small shark. A fish-like creature, it was to be met underwater. According to its animations, it was to attack the player by biting and launching energy bolts from below the water's surface.[1]

The creature's name is most likely based on that of the real world archerfish, as they mainly share the same behavior.

In modding[edit]

In the Half-Life mod Azure Sheep, the Archer is fought in combat, mostly in the chapter Liquids, where it bites the player. The sound files used are very distorted Ichthyosaur sounds. It also appears in another mod, Point of View.
