Why is Gordon immune to Headcrabs?
So I played the Half Life remake Black Mesa and I asked me the whole time why are the Headcrabs not able to jump on Gordons head and turn him into a zombie like everyone else? Sure, he's wearing his HEV suit, but as you can see on every Half Life cover he isn't wearing his helmet. So there is nothing that could stop the Headcrabs from taking control over him, but even so they just make a bodycheck attack.

A peculiar shaped head.

I think it was explained in the manual for Half-Life, Gordon simply doesn't give them an opportunity to attach their beaks.

This seems to be a good explanation, if the theory with the inserted claws is ture.

Because having a headcrab jump on Gordon and instantly kill him wouldn't be fun.

They stay away from his head because gordon has a bad case of maincharacteritis.

Because of his beard of manliness.

The only logical explination.

His glasses produce a forcefield that headcrabs can't enter.

Yes he has the suit, but no helmet that would protect his head like you can see on the boxes of the game.

Or he has a helmet, like the hev researchers on xen.
*Obligatory debate about whether or not Gordon wears a helmet here*

His bear has a repelent which makes him inmune
