The Archer[1] is an alien cut from Half-Life. It can be found in the game files.


The Archer's model has the size of a small shark. A fish-like creature, it was to be seen and encountered underwater.

Behavior and skills[]

According to its animations, it was to bite the player, and shoot from its mouth an unknown substance, possibly a toxic spit or water-based projectile, an attack also seen in the Bullsquid and Mr. Friendly, another cut creature.


Its name is most likely based on that of the real world archerfish, as they share similar behaviors.
