Individual information

Gas mask

Combine Hazmat Workers are a non-combat cleanup force of the Combine introduced in Half-Life: Alyx.


Combine Hazmat Workers are part of a group designated as Infestation Control, the logo of which depicts a worker repelling a tentacle. They are stationed primarily in and around the Quarantine Zone carrying out work to stem the infestation of alien flora and fauna from Xen. Workers bring vats of an orange fluid produced by Antlions known as Cleanup Solution to these locations which they spray into the environment like an expanding foam. Combine Hazmat Workers wear yellow hazmat suits, green gloves, black boots, a gas mask identical to the Combine Worker's (albeit with the filter in place), and carry a black tank on their backs which feeds oxygen directly into their suit through a valve on the chest. Writing on the hazmat suit indicates it's a "MODEL - EB - 2B". At some point, one of these Hazmat Workers became infected by Infectious Spores and transformed into Jeff.

No living Combine Hazmat Workers are seen in Half-Life: Alyx. They are only encountered either as corpses or Zombies.

Behind the scenes[edit]

Unlike the Combine Worker, the Hazmat Worker's model does not contain any unique unused animations. A female variant of the Hazmat Worker wearing an alternate white suit is only seen in zombified form.
