Congo turrets[edit]

Someone should note that the Sentry turrets look very similar to the Sentry turrets used in the movie "Congo".

Never seen it.
YouTube to the rescue! It's about 5 minutes in.
The turrets do bear a slight resemblance but they're shorter and wider. It's kind of hard to tell in the dark, but they seem to be a single barrel design, not multiple rotating barrels like the HL sentry. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 03:48, 23 January 2009 (UTC) 05:15, 23 January 2009 (UTC

Are you sure these turrets are used by the HECU? They seem to be part of black mesas security system, at least the ceiling turrets do. In the chapter "WE'VE GOT HOSTILITIES" you can find a dead soldier next to a machine gun turret, either indicating that the turret didn't belong to the HECU, or they have got a problem with friendly fire.

PS2 difference[edit]

Somebody needs to edit the article to mention the guns that just activate when they "see" you and the red light in the PS2 version. I added it to the "Variants" section but it belongs in the main article since that's what most of them are.

We should split off the BM turrets into a separate article. --Fireman V2 14:57, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
