Half-Life 2 Modifications

New Official Thread—Thanks, azzkiker

As Zips would say,
Ye Olde Thread

The following is a compiled (yet not complete) list of all the released Half-Life 2 mods ready for download and play!

Be sure to bookmark this page and visit periodically for updates. I should be updating this whenever I get the chance. update: i'm extremely busy right now, so updates will be slow. I'm eventually going to try to separate this into a few categories, but bear with me.

Click the download links for more info, screenshots and download mirrors.

Enjoy and feel free to mention any mods that may have been missed or overlooked.

Fortress Forever

Yes, it's finally here! The Source modification that brings to the Source engine the glory of the old Team Fortress has been released. All of you junkies that miss bunnyhopping and conc jumping (etc), rejoice, for your mod has arrived!


Half-Life 2 SMod

I can't belive we didn't have this before.
SMOD is a Half-Life 2 modification, with a new HUD style, more weapons, new ragdoll physics, ironsights, more content in the original 13 chapters, and massive gore. SMOD is a standalone modification for Half-Life 2. It does not work with other mods, such as Garry's Mod. Overall, it is awesome.

Half-Life 2 Weapon Sound Pack

Description: This sound pack replaces the following:

-Firing Sounds: -357
-Pulse Rifle
-MP7 + Grenade Launcher sound
-Grenade + Explosions sounds
-SPAS12 Double-Shot
-Combine Turret
-Airboat Turret (the original one sounded too weak)

-NPC Firing Sounds for the USP, Glock (Alyx Gun), Pulse Rifle, MP7, and Flaregun

-NPCs: -Hunter Firing, Rotor, Weapon Windup and Cooldown sounds
-Gunship Firing, Rotor, Weapon Windup and Cooldown sounds
-Dropship Firing and Rotor sounds
-Combine APC Missile Firing sound
-Hopper Turn-on sound
-Strider Alert, Idle, Pain, and Firing sounds
-Zombie Alert, Pain, and Attack sounds
-Poison Zombie (the guys w/ the black headcrabs) Pain and Death sounds

-Combine Sniper Firing sound (usually i keep this in no matter what

I added a bit of reverb and echo to some of the sounds. The zombie(s) and strider sounds were from HL and the various Combine weapon firing sounds from Doom 3's Plasma Gun. The USP is taken from HL2 itself ("why is the USP louder when the Combine uses it?"), the MP7 is just a mix of various other sounds, and the Combine Sniper and Grenade Launcher is from Ghost Recon.

Half-Life 2 DM Project 22 V17 Mod

Description: A brand new Half-Life 2 DM mod. Battle it out online with a selection of completely new weapons.

Weapons currently working ingame:

The Assualt Rifle:
A high powered rifle, which has high accuracy but trades it off for fire rate.

The briefcase:

The Cluster Grenade:
A high explosive device which acts like a normal grenade until it explodes and three more charges go flying out, exploding moments later.

The Gattling Cannon:
The Assualt Rifles opposite, the Gattling has a
high rate of fire but poor accuracy.

The Gravity Grenade:
An extremly powerful weapon if use correctly. When a player enters it's area of effect there body is hit by G forces up to 20 times that of earth. In laymans terms this freezes them inplace, unable to move or fire.

The Katana:
A Sharp Sword.

This high explosive weapon makes you explode, hopefully taking others with you.

Laser Mines:
Laser Mines use a combination of lasers and motion dectors to find nearby players and explode when one gets too close.

The Pigeon:
A classic weapon. These pigeons will attack any nearby player (including the user).

The Plasma Cannon:
A high powered plasma emitter, this can rip the enemys to shreds.

The Rail Gun:
The most powerful weapon in this mod, it fires explosive charges at extremly high speeds.

The Saber:
The cousin of the katana, this sword allows a "Lunge" forward, striking an enemy.

The Shock Rifle:
The Snipers favorite, this weapon can vaporise players instantly. But be wary, this weapon awards points on the distance from the enemy at the point of kill.

The Toothpick:
This is a small piece of wood, used to clean between teeth.

The Zero Point Field Emitter:
Useing similar technolgy as the grav gun, this allows the user to propel themselves through the air and to also hover in a single place.

Goldeneye: Source

GoldenEye: Source is a modification of Half-Life 2, with only one goal in mind; to bring the memories and experiences from the original GoldenEye64 back to life using Source Technology. We want you to look at this mod and remember the first best multiplayer first-person shooter ever made. We are doing our best to bring in the opinions of the community to create a game that everyone is going to enjoy. But, we are not here to recreate the game exactly how it was in GE64, a lot of things have changed since they first designed that game, mainly in technology and gamers experiences. We are here to take the game even further but at the same time provide a lot of those fun elements that hardcore GE64 fans will enjoy.


Antlion Troopers

The player takes the role of a Combine soldier who is being trained to become a commander. The first mission is to help out a base that is in danger of being overrun by antlions.



An action game inspired by the 1986 movie Critters.


Causality Effect

Starting with the "Red Letter Day" of the original game, the story is changed. The teleportation experiment creates a hole in time and space, and the player's task is to travel through time and correct events that happened in the past. Features multiple endings.


Coastline to Atmosphere

This mod continues the story where Half-Life 2 finished and offers a possible alternate scenario.


Combine Destiny

The Combine has lost contact to one of their bases. The player is part of a team of Combine soldiers that is sent out to investigate and regain the control over the base.

A fantasy themed action-adventure total conversion mod in 3rd person view. Received 2005 Editor's Choice (released mod) from ModDB.

FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod

A modification that adds high-resolution textures to nearly all of the objects in the original Half-Life 2. The mod replaces the original music with orchestral scores and also modifies weapon strength to resemble realistic stopping power.''



GROGG, the player, is a giant gorilla with a brain in a jar instead of a head. He has been separated from his father, a mad scientist, and it is GROGG's quest to find him.

Mistake Of Pythagoras

A mod in which the player takes the role of Gordon Freeman in a parallel dimension. All the models and gameplay are exactly the same as in HL2, but the maps and story have been altered. Ranked #12 mod of 2005 by ModDB.



After the explosion of the citadel at the end of Half-Life 2's story, the G-man puts Gordon Freeman into stasis, but after a while prepares Gordon for a new mission.

A comical mouse-driven old-style adventure game, set in an office environment.



A mod which depicts the events taken place before Ravenholm, a location in the Half-Life 2 story, is overrun by headcrabs.

Homepage (maybe temporary)

Revolt: The Decimation

Revolt: The Decimation is a competitive clan controlled combat system. The battle-grounds and weapons are designed for perfect balance between the red and blue teams. This is the first ever game created specifically made for ladders and other competitive play. The primary game mode is a two-stage object that whatever team owns control of the middle determines offense. Player positions are vital and ideally, should change depending on offense and defense. The game is set up as a sport and the strategic team can out maneuver a team full of individuals who have superior shooting skills.

Description: This modmakes all the water in HL2 reflecctive in d3d8/8.1 just like it is in d3d9, yes it's based off of the other mod that was usppoused to do this but didn't.

Half-Life 2 - Master Blasters

Using the fast-action rocket launcher enjoyment Id Software's Quake coupled with the game play style of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros., this mod certainly puts a twist to original Half-life 2 Deathmatch. The object of the game is to knock all your opponents in the round off the platforms without being knocked off yourself! Players start each round out with a limited number of lives and are able to pick up variety of weapons and pick ups throughout the game. Whatever team or player survives the longest receives a point, the round is restarted, and the mayhem starts again.

Half-Life 2 Pong Source V0.9 Mod

Description: Pong as you all know was a simple video game based on ping pong.

Then many years later when video games had got a lot better graphically, a team of modders took the idea of Pong and put it in to the Quake universe. Instead of two paddles, there was two teams with the ingenious addition of weapons. The idea was still the same, get the ball into the "goal" but now you could hit the Ball with weapons. The bigger the gun, the ferther and faster the ball traveled. It was fun.

But things change and in less years than it took to get from the original Pong to Quake graphics, games have changed graphically again, to what they are now.

So here at PongSource we have decided to make our own version of Pong for the Half-life 2 universe. It has Guns, It has Goals, but most of all we think ITS FUN!!!

PongSource has a new play mode as a server-side option. Weapon Damage can now be turned off, so that players can concentrate on the ball and scoring, rather than getting shot on the way.

We call this No Weapon Damage mode because we can't think of anything better, and if the server hosts play nicely servers should have (NWD) in their hostname to prevent confusion between the two server types.

Half-Life 2 CMod V1.01

Description: The aim of this mod is to make minor but important improvements to the normal HL2 single player game, completely retaining the character of the original game, but fixing certain issues present in the original game.

Efficient pickup mode:

When toggled on, items (health, armour and ammo) are only picked up if their entire contents can be used. No more picking up a 25h box with 99h. Impulse 204 toggles mode. Note that you will need to toggle efficient pickup off to collect ammo from an ammo crate. Also note returns to the default value, on, when new map segment is loaded.

Ladders unaffected by Use:

A recent change to the normal HL2 release has been that the "use" key mounts and dismounts players from ladders. This prevents the player from picking up objects while on a ladder. Given that jump also dismounts the player, CMod removes the use of "use" with regard to ladders, so players can once again pick up objects while on a ladder.

FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod

Here's v3 of FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod with some nice enhancements! The new Alyx models are using a significant higher poly-amount (up to 39000 polys, Valve's original uses 7500). Therefore, you should own a fast graphics card. Don't use this modification with outdated DirectX8 hardware – in this case you WILL see serious stutter.

You need at least 1600 x 1200 In game resolution and the highest quality settings, or the engine will use the first or second mipmap-level for the hires textures, resulting in a much much much lower quality - in this case the hires textures are looking worse than the originaln lores-textures.

Enhancements since Version 2.32:
- Uses Base Source Engine 2
- Some textures redone
- Alyx Highres Models with EP1 Face-Mech
(Alyx Construction Kit Pre-Alpha-Release included)
- Some bugfixed maps for using with SourceEngine 2
- PHONG/RIM Shaders
- Partially redone soundtrack and soundtrack-scripts
- Some minor tweaks

As either Punks or Corp Mercenaries the player will fight through the physical world to gain access, via jack-in terminals, to cyberspace. Cyberspace is a three dimensional representation of the world's network. Inside cyberspace players will launch programs to hack into systems linked to the physical world, fight off enemy hackers or defend critical systems. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, some are completed in either the physical world or cyberspace, others only by a well timed combination of the two.


The Battlegrounds

A total conversion mod for Half-Life 1 and 2, The Battlegrounds is set in the Revolutionary War era. Basically, enough said.

Downloads on that page.


The atmosphere in the original HL2 game was both interesting, and terrefying, and that is the driving force behind our choice on creating a modifacation on that enviroment alone. All maps from this modifacation will have a very similar kind of feel of atmosphere and gameplay from the original Ravenholm, but with an different and expanded story, and many new locations. So, you will find yourself battleing many more Zombies, Headcrabs, and more.


Eternal Silence

Eternal Silence is a science fiction mod which pits two capital ships against each other in a seamless blend of space warfare and tactical infantry combat. These two teams race to destroy each other in the depths of space. Pilots coordinate strikes with invading infantry in order to take down the behemoth capital ships from both the inside on-foot and the outside with spaceships.


Note: It possilbly requires the SDK Base to play

Exite Portal Mod

Exite is a mod for Half-Life 2 that utilizes portal technology, like the upcoming game Portal (if you don't know what Portal is, you might want to check into that).


Iron Grip: The Oppression v1.01

Iron Grip : The Oppression has a completely new kind of gameplay, combining First Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements in a way never done before.
1 team consists of 1 human player, playing a full RTS style game, building and commanding AI troops while the opposing team consisting of human FPS players only!

The new techniques provide the gamer with rising tension in a full scale city war. The beautiful fantasy architecture and other elements which colour this mod brings the player right into the Iron Grip conflict. The small cooperative aspects of the FPS team intensify the need for teamwork to an ultimate level.
Iron Grip : The Oppression is not just meant to provide new gameplay. It also gives players a small taste of what the developing Iron Grip universe is like.
With new types of weaponry and combat, this should give an unforgettable experience.


Coastline to Atmosphere

This mod continues the story where Half-Life 2 finished and offers one possible scenario. After the big explosion you fall to the ground and are very badly injured. Some people find you and take you home to a small village outside the city where the citadel was built. After 3 months you’re strong again and want to fight on.

You have never seen Alyx or any of the others since the explosion. But you try to find new people that will fight with you against Breen. Nobody wants to help, some are afraid, others think that Breen has learned his lesson and won’t start again. It also seems that most of his organisation was lost in the explosion. Then you hear that along the coast Breen is starting again and trying to take control again. So you decide to go to the coast. There you take a little boat and go along the coast so the Combine won’t notice you coming.

Downloads on the site.

How to Install 3rd Party Modifications

BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE-If a mod install doesn't work and you don't have HL2, it is probably that. Some moods run with only HL2: DM, check the mod makers' website to see if you need HL2 to play.

First, download the file. All of the download links on this should be working. What I do to install mods is download it to the desktop, then delete it after it has been installed.

Next, look at the file's type.

If it is a .exe

It has probably just made your life a bit easier. Files that end with .exe are an installer (in this case) that you just have to double-click on. The only possible thing that could trip you up would be the directory it installs into. Make sure it is \steamapps\sourcemods, and not anything else. It will probably default to C:\Program Files\Valve..., so if you have your Steam installed in Program Files\Steam, make sure to select that. After it has installed, skip to the end of this post.

If it ends with .zip, .rar, or anything else

Your job has become a bit harder. If you haven't already, download WinRAR, which can extract and compress many types of files. Right-click the file on the desktop (or wherever you installed it) and click "Extract files". Choose the directory "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods". Some people don't have the "Valve" folder, so just go to Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods.

After you have extracted or installed the files, look in the \sourcemods directory. If there is a folder with the name of the mod or something like it, it has probably worked. There might be a text document or two outside the folder as well. Restart Steam, and you should be good to go.

Happy Fragging!

Download page (sorry it's not in English)
The official homepage is http://accept.hopto.org/smod/ .
http://kh0rn3.googlepages.com/ is probably a fan page / website.
Still it's good to have this link, for those who don't speak Japanese.

Fixed it. I just figured there is a very small population here that speak Japanese.

You could always try to run them on Episode 1, after all, they are free. If they don't work, why not consider buying HL2. After all, it is one of the greatest games of all time.

Posted a moddb link for Twilight.

I really don't know if the mods will work with Episode 1. What I would do is install Episode 1, the SDK Base (some mods require it; it can't hurt) and try to play the mods. What's the worst that can happen?

I'll put the other Resident Evil mod up when it is playable; this list is only for playable mods.

twlighlight isnt playable either. the link is just a room where you can take a look at their custom textures. they are a few months away from an alpha. I downloaded a few trailers and other stuff from their website.

To my regret they base their game on RE : the movie.........

thats why I have more fate in UBCS

anyway, I will pm you when the mod is up.

A patch for Iron Grip: The Oppression is now available! We’ve been working hard on reading the feedback we’ve received and would like to thank everybody who took the time to provide us this information.

There’s much more on the way! We’re working hard on rounding up a stable feature set, which will be followed by many new expansions including all kinds of new infantry, vehicles, weaponry, superweapons and game-types.

The patch and updated full installer are available for download on moddb.
