The Weapon Box is a casket used by the Black Mesa survey teams to carry weapons, ammunition, batteries, and medkits on Xen.


  • Most of the time, weapon boxes are found throughout Xen near the remains of survey team members.
  • In Half-Life's Deathmatch mode, weapon boxes are dropped by dead players. When picked up, it gives the user ammunition and the last weapon used by the last player.

Behind the scenes

  • Originally, the number 3 was on the Weapon Box instead of 8. This can be seen in the source file for the texture in the Half-Life SDK.


Despite being small, they can give the player any weapon of any size that the previous player was using in multiplayer, even the Rocket Launcher.
