HairBall is a map in the multiplayer mode of Half-Life: Opposing Force. It was added in the Opposing Force CTF update.



“About once every 75 years, the temperature in the peaks over the Black Mesa facility drops to below freezing. A battle rages between the military and civilians. Supplies run low, and two smaller sorties are are cut off from the main conflict and find themselves in a small scale intense battle for control of the supply bunkers.”
Opposing Force CTF Description

Behind the scenes[edit]

HairBall was originally created simply for demonstration purposes by designer Matthew Armstrong, but the level caught on and was eventually developed into a full-fledged map.[1]
