Snark Pit is a map in the multiplayer mode of Half-Life. It was included with the game on release. Dario Casali's signature can be found in the map using the noclip mode.


Behind the scenes[edit]

Snark Pit is based on one of Casali's previous maps known as DCDM3, one in a series of deathmatch maps he created in 1997 for Quake while waiting for his visa to work at Valve.[2] The name of the map is hldm3 in the leaked Half-Life: Source map pack (hl-wc-maps). This may be the original title of the map.
