The Combine Assassin, also known as Female Assassin or simply Assassin, is an enemy cut from Half-Life 2, the successor of Half-Life’s female assassin and a predecessor of the Overwatch Elite, who inherited her helmet.
The Combine Assassin is a slimmer, female version of the Overwatch Elite, with a nearly identical helmet.
She uses two automatic pistols (and originally some kind of rifle), and a variety of melee attacks to attack enemies. She is shown to be a quick and resourceful enemy, moving swiftly and performing flips, rolls, and other movements. She also wears heel springs, recycled as the Advanced Knee Replacement for Chell in Portal, that improve her movement and speed. The armor and padding are almost completely absent, allowing the assassin to move quickly. When she dies, the light on her helmet slowly goes off.
