I move we change the article's name to "Opposing Force", because Steam calls it that. Arnavion 12:32, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Or we just keep it named as Half-Life: Opposing Force. --Donovan-j-charlie 16:08, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Some facts

It should be mentioned: 1. Shephard does not receive his orders, but later finds out that the marines were sent on orders to silence the scientists 2. The black ops are FOES of the player.

Gordon Freeman Glitch

It should be noted that the glitch where it crashes when you see Gordon Freeman is only on the steam version, and the retail ones are bug-free. Fortunately, there's a way to avoid the glitch; you'll need to move around the teleporter beam using noclip, as it crashes. You'll need to disable noclip to get through the one field where Adrian goes to Xen, though.

Is there any way to solve the glitch without cheating? I want to do OF without cheats. --Donovan-j-charlie 12:41, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Sadly, no.

Yes there is, right click the game and select "Properties." Then go to "Set Launch Options" under "General" and type "-autoconfig" It should work after that.

Ugh, ehm... 26.3.2009 VALVe made an update, so this problem is gone now. Try it. ;)

Game Shut Offs

Before I make a multiplayer match my game sometimes shuts down. Is there anyway to fix it? P.S. is happens on Half-Life Game of the year edition.

Do you need to have the original?

Do you need to have the original Half-Life to play this? I sound like an almighty idiot but I've never played this so... Rise and Shine Dr. Freeman 18:26, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

No, it's a standalone game. Bramblepath 20:00, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Right thanks for that. Rise and Shine Dr. Freeman 10:25, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Trivia: Gordon Freeman

I believe that it should be pointed out that if you use Third Person in Half-Life, you will see that the ponytail and glasses was done in that one too, and not made by Gearbox as stated under Trivia. -- 22:16, May 11, 2012 (UTC)

Gina Cross corpse

I have heard about Gina cross's dead body in a part of OF, if anyone knows about what chapter it is please tell me because I was looking for it, thanks -CJ

Some newbie questions

Just playing this game because I wanted to get a more complete Half-Life story/gameplay experience.

1. One of the guns takes 100 energy and fires big slow green orbs like a BFG 9000. The secondary-fire teleports me to some random room. What is this gun? Why do I teleport to a random room? And what is the purpose of teleporting to random room?

If I ran out of that gun's energy, where can I get more? Andwan0 (talk) 09:11, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
