The Black Mesa SUV is a vehicle used by the Black Mesa personnel.



In the Topside Motorpool visited during the chapter Surface Tension, two SUVs are stored for reparation in a garage. Later, Gordon sees SUVs being thrown at HECU soldiers by a Gargantua in an underground parking lot, before being attacked himself.

Half-Life: Opposing Force[edit]

In the chapter "The Package", Shephard gets into an underground parking lot where the Black Ops are setting up a bomb to destroy the facility and fighting Race X creatures. There he finds several damaged SUVs.

In Opposing Force, the SUV was slightly improved from the first version seen in Half-Life and parts of its interior, though very simple, can be seen.

Half-Life: Blue Shift[edit]

Abandoned SUV with its occupants killed.

In the Freight Yard area featured in the chapter Captive Freight, Barney Calhoun discovers an SUV with its occupants killed, its driver door open, and its lights blinking. Two SUVs can also be seen parked near the Freight Management Offices traversed with Rosenberg. Finally, at the very end of the game, Barney, Rosenberg, Walter and Simmons teleport out of the base and use a SUV to escape from the facility after reuniting at the Black Mesa South Access Tunnel.

A slightly improved version of the SUV can be seen in several occasions in Blue Shift. Its interior can be completely seen and it has realistic, transparent windows.

Half-Life: Decay[edit]

One SUV is seen in the Ordinance Storage Facility parking lot with a dead scientist that went through the windshield when he crashed the vehicle into a container.

In Decay, the SUV brush was finally replaced by an actual worldmodel.


  • The brush SUV license plate reads "Valve".
  • The model of the car seems to resemble a 1970 Range Rover, whereas the Decay model resembles a late-1980s Jeep Grand Cherokee.

In other works[edit]

A Black Mesa SUV can be found in the Counter-Strike map Piranesi.
