The Combine Watchtower is a watchtower platform found throughout City 17 and other Combine-controlled areas, usually placed on the sides of defensive structures. It is set up to give the Overwatch units a better view of the surroundings and to offer a good position to shoot from.

Overview[edit]

The Combine Watchtower consists of a metallic stem, featuring a City 17 logo, tin roofing, and a short, level platform. It is usually manned by a single Metrocop, who may fire a flare once a reasonable force of Resistance is spotted as a signal to call backup, or an Overwatch Soldier. Although most watchtowers are inaccessible by normal citizens, some Resistance members climb up onto them during the City 17 uprising using ropes and drop supply crates found there down onto the streets for other citizens.

Watchtowers can be also found along the rim of the compound surrounding the Citadel.

Behind the scenes[edit]

In the WC mappack, an early brush Watchtower is often seen near a Sensor Gate. Most of the time, it has a Metrocop stationed there. As seen in "combine_gallery_002.vmf", the cabin can be lowered to the ground for the officer to get into. It can be found in the Depot, Combine Factories and City 17 Trainstation maps.
