"You're dead, you hear me? Dead!"
―Human Sergeant[src]

The Human Sergeant[1] is a HECU class cut from Half-Life. He was to appear as a mini-boss during the game's development.


Originally showcased in gameplay videos of early Half-Life builds, the Human Sergeant can be found in the Half-Life model files, as many other enemies cut from the game. He is also featured in the Half-Life SDK files, where larger texture files can be found.

As a squad leader of sorts, he was to smoke a cigar, have a flattop haircut and a bad attitude. He was also to command grunt squads and be in radio contact with command.[1]

According to his concept art image featured in Raising the Bar, he was originally to use spray bullets with the M60, fire his dual LAW rocket launchers and punch the player if they got too close.[1] Later on, the M60 was replaced by a Minigun and the rocket launchers with a backpack.[2] The Combat knife is also on his textures, though it is unsure if it was to be a weapon used by him or not. The M60 was later reused for the cut Jet Ski in Half-Life 2 and along with the M72 LAW eventually turned into standalone weapons in Counter Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes, a Valve title similar to the original Half-Life.

While the most complete name for the Human Sergeant is provided in Raising the Bar (where it is misspelled as "Sargeant"), he has several other names. In the Half-Life files, his model and sound file folders are named "hassault" (for "human assault"); in the Half-Life SDK files, his folder is named "Hvyweapons" (for "heavy weapons"), while his .qc files use the terms "human heavy weapons" and "heavy weapons character".

His sound file folder in Half-Life only contains the sounds for his Minigun, not his voice. However, in the Half-Life Alpha, there is one voice clip, called hw_alert, in which the Sergeant shouts "YOU DEAD!! YA HEAR ME?!? DEAD!!"

His face was reused with slight modifications for the Afro-American HECU soldier featured among the four original HECU models.
