Power Struggle is a map in the multiplayer mode of Half-Life: Opposing Force. It was added in patch version[3]



“In an attempt to rendezvous with Dr. Rosenberg and facilitate his plan for escape, a group of BMRF personnel entered an abandoned facility that once supplied coolant to the main power generators for the labs nearby. As the group entered the areas below the Displacement Field Labs, they were intercepted by a military squad assigned to eliminate any remaining civilians. A fierce battle ensued.”
