Why do we never see any combine resist at the end of the game SPOILERS
Spoilers for end game content


We all know about the uprising at the end of the game where the city goes into fullscare warfare and large battles start but the thing i always asked myself is why there are never any combine metro police on your side. The reason i say this is because if you read the wiki about the combine or the metro police to the clear it said that most of them are normal humans just there as cops and that they get better care for there familys more food and better income but you have to think some of them have a want to kill the combine and the only reason they join the combine is to protect there familys and such. Thats just my 2cents anyone else have any ideas. Feel free to comment and talk about it

people who joined the CP also may have believed in the combines goals or whatever, hell, im rooting for the combine, for my reason, search "Civil protection Oils well" to youtube.
And as they liked the combine, they would still do theyre jobs i guess.

See that fancy implants in the Metrocops head? No? Well, that's because it's in the head. Anyway, that thing is keeping the cop from resisting.

Hem intresting ideas and one last question what about putting members into the police force as we saw barney but he did state that is was risky as hell but would it possible that they had more spies in the combines metro force ?

Pretty sure there are infiltrators like you said, its just we only see Barney. Who knows maybe we will see more in HL3?

there's definitely some brainwashing involved at some point. If there are implants in the head like you were suggesting, why doesn't barney have any?

He probably...maybe he just stole the armor of the armory. Or killeda Metrocop somehow without triggering the "unit down" signal.

Or maybe they didn't start brainwashing until the uprising started taking serious effect, which all metrocops still serving were probably forcibly implanted with these chips.

They're all cyborgs. look at the Combine Soldier w/o the top of the suit

I don't even think they are alive. They are just kept mobile with combine technology, using their bodies as living robots. Like they do it with other species (Striders, Gunships etc.), hence the name Combine.

Yea i saw those to but i thought those were for the foot troops like in the wiki it stated that as a combine soldier from a human they are "Required" or forced to get the implants to brainwash them and make them loyal
They did join, in fact, the rebel soldier's clothes are made from pieces of cp suits

But the rebel outfits and the cp armor looks nothing alike, it's not even the same material.

Yes they do, look harder
The CP Units are just Humans in suits. Nothing else. The Combine Soldiers, are brainwashed and have cybernetics. The CPs keep with the combine out of fear, of Gordon. After all, you did kill a WHOLE bunch at the beginning, like that other guy said, they would prefer to stay with the Combine.
Well some of the CP do follow the combines rule, out of fear, confusion, or generaly enjoying the masarcre and shareing the same veiws and so the combine.
Others will have joined the resistance and will have taken of the CP uniforms to not be confused by the resistance as to working with the combine. < Thats my guess, doesnt explain why Barney continues to wear the uniform though throughout half life 2, but then in half one he allways wore a uniform as some kind of afority.
The body armor vest on the cp is worn by most resistance members.

Regular combine soldiers are basecly brainwashed and have be changed and dont have the will power to choose a side.

I dont know all the info on them, but i think alot of this is the reason why
