Disposal is a map in the multiplayer mode of Half-Life. It was added to the game in the 25th Anniversary Update on November 17, 2023.[1]


Disposal is a fairly straightforward map located in and around a toxic waste facility. The map is divided into two halves, with one being labelled as "Processing Area 3" and the other being unnamed. Between the two is a large courtyard consisting of a ground level and an upper platform with varying heights. Players can pass under the platform to reach the building entrances below or instead choose to enter the buildings from the platform. Players can also jump directly from the ground onto the platform via a dumpster.

The Gluon Gun, Long Jump Module, and Tau Cannon are all placed in a straight line, and the Rocket Launcher is located in an elevated location on the roof of the building holding the Long Jump Module. The location of the Rocket Launcher allows a player to take shots at others below. In order to reach the Gluon Gun, one must first press a button located at the end of the Processing Area 3 section to open a gate nearby.

Above the unlabelled half of the map is two Snark nests in a vent. The vent, which can be accessed from the centre of the map, leads into the interior itself via a ladder. In order to prevent this, a player can turn a valve in order to release Snarks and toxic gas into the vents. This side of the map also includes a Loader and more toxic waste, though this is out of reach of the player and exclusively cosmetic.

Dispersed throughout the map are several explosive barrels, which can be detonated to harm opposing players.

The inaccessible room with the robotic loader was partially copied over from the tram ride (c0a0c).


“Processing Area 3, a massive radioactive waste plant gone quiet. Tons of room for you and your colleagues to do experiments with a Tau Cannon or some hand grenades.”
