Guns & Butter

! Please disable all other mods and workshop items before playing this map !

Chased into an old factory boiler room by the Combine, you must use stealth and strategy to escape! Collect resources while you explore - you'll need them ;)

  • Mini mission with a new character* and custom voice over
  • Customized NPC behavior
  • Multiple strategies to win

My first map for HLA. Please leave comments - I appreciate your feedback.


* Franklin Tango (nickname "Frank" or "Frang") and Russell met before the Seven Hour War on a large particle accelerator project in which both Aperture Science and Black Mesa had a stake. Always a tinkerer, Frank's technical aptitude lead to employment at a large government contractor specializing in scientific equipment installation. He was an avid cyclist and still has a soft spot for human powered machines. After the war, he and Russell started building hidden labs together - with Frank devising the various hidden switches, concealed interlocks, and other obfuscation devices needed to keep secret labs hidden from the Combine.

Really appreciated the custom voice acting as well as the unique stealth-style beginning section.
Unfortunately the November 2020 update ruined the usability of some of the ammo, specifically those that are on Combine bodies. As a result, I struggled to win on Hard, though I could definitely do it if I kept practicing. Feedback video here: https://youtu.be/mhaggI2LCtk

@johnhill, yeah the battle can go sideways pretty quick. Try to find cover and pick off the combine one at a time while the zombies keep 'em busy! @Hak, the VO at the beginning provides a clue ;)

@willhart roger that. something turned russel back on. maybe the no tuts mod... thanks :+1:

I do have the no tutorials mod, and also many other maps active, so that I remember to play them. Could be any one of those.

@willhart, I heard Russel VO in there, which should have been disabled. I'm curious, were you running other mods?
Miz  [author] Aug 7, 2020 @ 9:47pm 
@willhart awesome! I have not seen anyone get through quite like that before! cool combine farming trick at the end.

I made a playthrough for this here: https://youtu.be/hgxNcXZHXhc

Thanks @Cell. I'll look into the overlapping VO issue. I though that was fixed. Nice jump tricks- thought I fixed that too ;P

Yo, I made Walkthrough for all One room competition maps I could find.

Voice acting set me more in a mood for bloodshed and was a nice addition to story. Tiptoeing around zombies was great, I kinda wish I couldnt not jump in that level so it would be more scary, but It was my fault for using it. When you rush out the voice over overlaps each other passing sertain triggers what was off putting. Was running out of bullets at the end, but trying to figure out how to get more had charm on its own

glad y'all enjoyed. @johnhill weird backpack glitch - not sure what would cause that. I encountered a surprising number of end scenarios while testing. there are definitely a few strats ;)
