Concept art[edit]

Wasteland Scanner

I found this concept art for a "Wasteland Scanner". It looks like the Shield Scanner, but there are differences, so is it possible a cut enemy? Dark Ridley 14:07, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

It's anyone's guess, really. To be on the safe side, assume it's just an early concept for the Shield Scanner until we know different, they're probably one and the same. --MattyDienhoff 17:36, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Can these enemies make pie? XD --Doctor Hax 17:17, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

It's a machine! Not a synth![edit]

Why are you guys calling this a synth? First of all, the City Scanner was out before this Scanner got invented. Synths are alive, Scanners aren't. Plus, there is a battery inside. My point is: THIS IS A ROBOT! And you know what else? I like pie, and nobody can take that away from me! HAHAHA! Eh emm, uhhh...yeah, thats it. Thank you! --Doctor Hax 17:27, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

It's a Synth. It may be a special Synth, but one. A Synth is some kind of cyborg, after all. Klow 17:37, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
So if a Synth is a robot, also. Then what do the real Combine Citizens look like? Maybe that question would be answered in Episode Three, maybe. Because, the robots have to be made by someone! --Doctor Hax 21:03, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
"The Synth, self-replicating robots that evolve..." (Raising the Bar, p. 88) Combine Citizens? Never heard of it. Klow 22:08, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about Combine Citizens, from the Overworld. Nobody heard of them, but why would the robots be here? There has to be someone that made them. --Doctor Hax 12:34, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
We don't know if there's such a thing, and that's unlikely they would be called "Citizens". Maybe Advisors are the original form of the Combine, we don't know for sure. And you'd obviously find Synth there, since Gunships come from the Overworld at the end of HL2. Klow 12:40, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
