The Jet Ski is a water craft cut from Half-Life 2. It was replaced by the Airboat due to issues encountered during playtesting.

Overview[edit]

The Jet Ski model, without textures.

Keeping a first person view of the world, the Jet Ski was too much like running around on foot. It also had severe problems with communicating frame of reference when driving in one direction when looking in another. It was then replaced by the Airboat, more consistent with the Resistance-built theme, to address these issues.[1]

The Jet Ski model can be found in the playable Half-Life 2 leak files, but its textures are not finalized, like the Digger or the AirEx Truck. It is unknown if they were ever finished.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • Two sound files for the Jet Ski are still present in the Half-Life 2 sound folders, in "sound/vehicles/Jetski", while thirteen files can be found in the playable Half-Life 2 leak sound files, in the same folder. Those two sound files were recycled for the Scout Car.
  • A WC mappack map named "canal_jetski.vmf" was used for testing it.[3]
