X-8973 and R-4913 are the Vortigaunt protagonists of the Half-Life: Decay bonus chapter Xen Attacks that can be unlocked by the player who manages to obtain an A rank on all of the regular missions.
In Xen Attacks, both players play as Vortigaunts, "Drone Subjects" X-8973 and R-4913, two Vortigaunts sent to Earth by Nihilanth. Although short on story, the mission gives some unique insight into the Vortigaunts' role in the Black Mesa Incident as well as new layout information pertaining to the facility, notably expanding the Materials Transport area introduced at the end of Opposing Force.
Behind the scenes
There is also an unlockable Alien Mode that allows the player to play through the normal Half-Life campaign as a Vortigaunt.
