Black Mesa: Hazard Course is an add-on for the Source Engine mod Black Mesa, featuring a completely new perspective on Half-Life's Hazard Course. The Black Mesa Hazard Course will feature:

-New HD models & textures
-New dialogue & voice acting
-New maps and detailed environments
-Expanded intro, similar to Half-Life's PS2 version

Since this is a community project, we welcome people to help out in any way, from suggestions to fan-made content. Currently we are looking for people to fill these positions:


Any suggestions (within reasonable bounds, of course) are also welcome from anybody!

Media Policy

Remember that great mod, Black Mesa? Anyone familiar with the Black Mesa mod and its agonizing development cycle may remember long periods of media blackout. Since this is a community project rather than a full-fledged modding team, we are pleased to announce that, unlike the original mod, it will be our policy to strive to be as open as possible with the development process!

That's right. Expect to see half-finished areas, heavy WiPs and lots of orange and gray "dev" textures!

We do, however, announce this policy with a disclaimer: We hope that all of our followers will try their best to be as mature as possible, and realize that due to the open nature of our development process, the vast majority of media that will be released will NOT be fully representative of the final product.

This can be a good thing! It allows YOU, the followers, to give feedback early, so that we can make easy changes to give YOU what you want!

So criticize away! Just keep it civil!

Is this mod dead?

If you're reading this, then no. There is no point in letting a project die without notice. If we were to die, we'd be sure to let you know, however we have absolutely zero plans on doing so, and the mod is currently going strong.


Black Mesa: Hazard Course requires:
-The free Source SDK Base 2007
-Black Mesa

Thank you. Have a very safe, and productive day.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Hazard Course Direction Update Update

10 comments by JeffMOD on Apr 4th, 2015

Another day, another change of plans.

Earlier we announced our recent change of direction. We're here to announce that we will not actually be making a Five Nights at Freddy's themed Hazard Course. Despite the resounding, near deafening approval from the community at large, our lawyers have informed us that this isn't a legally viable direction, and some of our investors have withdrawn. As such, we will be sticking with classic Half-Life style!

We are, however, still looking for a Choreographer to breathe life into our NPCs - and we need that secured before we can finalize the Beta version! As we've said before, with a choreographer on our team, we should be able to release before the end of the year no problem.

And lastly, for those who are curious, that FNAHC video was actually a totally functional "prototype," made by project leader/level designer "dky.tehkingd.u," entirely within the Hammer editor over about a week and a half, with additional assets and VO by level designer JeffMOD. If you're interested, you can check it out, and play it for yourself right here.

(Update: Just pushed a missing texture fix. Download should be back up now. Thanks for your patience! -DKY)

Five Nights at Hazard Course

We hope it put a smile on you guys' faces. And if not, well... we'll just send Purple Man and give you a reason to keep it that way.

Until next update, good days, guys!

I'm the only member on the team with any choreo skill, and it's incredibly low. It's a major drawback at this point in development, and Source choreographers (not to mention skilled ones) aren't exactly common.

We'll need to update to maintain compatibility. One for the new mod release (small patch most likely), and one for the Steam release. Also if there are any major bugs, will be sure to get those fixed as well.

I LOVED the original Hazard Course. I played through it probably more than any other chapter. It made me very sad when I heard it wasn't in Black Mesa... I'm glad someone's working on it, though! Keep up the good work! It looks absolutely amazing!

Will there be new weapon such as silenced RPG, scoped crowbars, and automatic 357 magnum? Will there be new features such as sprays, custom playermodel support? Or driving a helicopter and crash it to Black Mesa and start my own Resconance Cascade?

Don't forget the burst-fire Crossbow! Oh, and you should be able to tear off the machine gun from the tank and use it with infinite ammo! Oh, how about-

No. Please. Just no.

I hope your joking, I mean honestly that is most retarded thing that has ever been asked in the history of ModDB that's ever existed. I pray it was a joke.
