Relive Water Hazard from Half-Life 2, this time without the airboat. Welcome to BOAT-LESS!
This mod aims to recreate the entire Water Hazard chapter to make it fun and interesting without the airboat.

The mod includes:

  • extended and redesigned maps, remade to fit the on-foot experience
  • new details added to the original Water Hazard maps, making them even more immersive
  • new voice acting
  • new music
  • Episode 2 features integrated into Water Hazard, making them look and play better than before

And much, much more!

We know that the Water Hazard chapter is rather boring for many Half-Life 2 players because of the airboat. Now, the time has come - Freeman will go through the old canals, BOAT-LESS!

BOAT-LESS in 2017

How things were:

2017 was a very important year for us. We expanded our team, made HUGE progress, and announced lots of stuff. Right now, we would like to thank all of you for the amazing support and feedback so far. Without it, we wouldn't be working so hard on this. We promise to do our best to deliver the best experience possible, and even though this page might not seem as lively as others on this site, we assure you - this mod will NOT die.

How things are:

We still have lots to show you, an we can't wait to do so. More precise content updates with specific topics will come, but for now - let's see a few screenshots that summarize how the mod looks right now. Please note - this is not a finished state. Things might not be 100% done yet, do keep that in mind when trying to find details that might not be right :)

I wonder if you found the secret of the article... :)

The entire Dev Team is very glad you're all following our work, and we hope 2018 will be at least twice as good as 2017 was for BOAT-LESS.

Thank you.

Out of bounds areas in games usually make us wonder what it would look like to be there. Time to see what hides in them!

Am I the only one that enjoyed the driving in HL2? Cool mod idea nonetheless

Are you considering also doing Highway 17 (plus half of Sandtraps) but designed without the car in mind? You can do Highway 17 without the car without having to cheat (minus HAVING to noclip a couple of times), some of it feels better without the car and some of it feels like you should've taken the car

noclip? you can do it completely without cheats, you only need to do a rocket jumping after the crane part

To be honest, that would need A TON of work, and I don't know if the time needed for that is in my hands. Right now, this is the only X-LESS project I have.
