The Combine monitor is a monitor used by the Combine to view locations watched by one or several cameras.

Overview[edit]

Combine monitors can be seen in City 17 and Nova Prospekt, among other places. When several cameras are connected to the device, the player can browse through the different watched locations. Some monitors are LCD-like, while others are multi-layered, similar to the Breencast ones.

At the start of the Half-life 2 chapter Nova Prospekt, the G-Man can be seen on a monitor. Later in block B4, the Stalker and the stripped Overwatch Soldier are introduced through another monitor. In Episode One, right before meeting with Barney between the Hospital and the Technical Trainstation, an Advisor is briefly seen on another monitor.

Behind the scenes[edit]

Just like the Breencast, the monitor uses the entity "point_camera" to film the subject in real time and the entity "func_monitor" for the screen.
