Game information


The Binoculars is an item (used as a weapon game-wise) cut from Half-Life 2. It can be found in the Half-Life 2 leak.


The Binoculars can zoom in to five times normal sight, however the player cannot fire weapons while using it. They cannot be spawned with impulse 101; the code give weapon_binoculars must be entered.

According to the Binocular's code in the leaked source code, they were to have a black mask while zoomed in, a different crosshair and animations for zooming in.[1]

They were finally integrated into the HEV Suit as the "zoom" feature, and the crossbow's scope. However, unused HUD icons for the Binoculars can still be found in the Half-Life 2 files.

Sound files found in its related sound folder contain indistinct signal noises, garbled voice sounds and the excerpt of a yodeling song - "Der Böller-Schütz von Mittenwald" by Franzl Lang. The voice message and the yodeling appear to be from the Tyrolean Music Station.
