Were the Marines always this brutal in the mod too?
So I finally finished Black Mesa after buying it. But I did play the mod version almost a decade ago, like 2014 or thereabouts, and might just be me but the Marines seemed much easier to fight when this was a mod.

I'm not complaining, I like them being this brutal, they are relentless with grenades if I'm in cover, they hold their position and snipe me if that's optimal and then rush me if I'm gaining the upper hand, they also seem to flank a lot more, you are never safe even in cover, but from what I remember they were much less dangerous and aggressive back in the mod days.

The AI was gimped in the mod, like the Jumping (remember having to crouch-jump everywhere?)

The Marine were slightly less aggressive in the original Half-Life. But, that's only because they couldn't shoot and move at the same time. You would get respite moments when they moved.

I mean I already pretty much crouch jump everywhere in source games instinctively so I don't remember that.

Though I really hated the Marines in the original game, they were just way too bullet spongy and I could never get into Half Life from games like DooM or Blood because of it.
I also played this around 2013 and i remember them being pretty brutal. Back then i was thinking that were they as tough way back in original half life1 which i played first time in 2006 maybe. This makes me want to have combine as tough or atleast the cut combine female assassins in hl2. I hope they are on Alyx when maybe in the future i can afford to get the damn index vr system...
