The Hazardous-Course 2 is a spoof of the original "Hazard-Course" from Half-Life, which resembles the first player training levels. In contrary to this, the Hazardous-Course, as it's name let's suggest, is much more dangerous. Although it's a mod for a first person shooter, the player can only wield a weapon at the designated target range. So it plays more like an adventure. The difficulty is quite challenging, but the rewards are accordingly. The Basic Training is peppered with hidden Secrets, which reveal tools, shortcuts, control rooms, and other features, to ease almost all challenges. There are two Secret Levels and one Bonus Level to discover, and to complete to access the final part of the Hazardous-Course. Help can be found on the page in form of a FAQ and a complete walkthrough. Unfortunately these are all in german. But to be translated soon. But be aware, that these helps may spoil some surprising Easter eggs, insider gags, and a lot of the actual game play of the HC2!

HC2 Secret Level

The secret level to "Hazard Course 2"

-What awaits me in the first secret level when I find it?

Rumor has it that in the depths of the Black Mesa Complex, a ruin of an old Aztec temple was found. Under utmost secrecy, first expedition teams were sent in, but none came back.

On an ancient tablet, written in a dead language, stood that those who enter will face these nine deadly traps:

Access to the temple is only for those who are brave enough
to overcome the bloodflow of the Earth and to face the guards.

The guardians of the temple, two horrifying creatures that he
who ventures first must appease so the path into the temple will be
revealed to him.

So he who enters the temple, he who dares, must take nine trials,
which will demand his spirit, his soul, and his body.

1. Trial - Vigilance
Only he who in spite of the glistening appearance of the shadow is not afraid...

2. Trial - Skill
Only he who walks without being left behind...

3. Trial - Maneuverablilty
Only he who flies like the wind around the blade...

4. Trial - Speed
Only he who rushes like the light from fire...

5. Trial - Courage
Only whose courage brings light in the darkness of Heaven...

6. Trial - Agility
Only he who is aware of his own power...

7. Trial - Modesty
Only he who is free from greed and lust for power..

8. Trial - Wisdom
Only whose spirit understands the language forms...

9. And the final trial - The Name of God
Only he who knows how to pronounce the name of God, the creator of the world...

... and all trials passed, his soul is pure enough

to hold the Holy Grail in his hands.

As it seems that the Holy Grail vanished with one of the expedition teams.
But he who dares to enter and to successfully leave the ruins, will bear an untold treasure.

I love this mod and I think it is even interesting than origin HL. But in fact,I wonder where Secret #5 #15 and #17 is. I found #12 using noclip,but I still wonder how to access that room.

Hope your workthrough can be translated in English. Thank you for your masterpiece.

I just can't complete the train course, I'm switching the track but the train won't pass trhu it. Sometimes it passing, sometimes it's not. I don't know it's broken or something?

This is a bug of HL. It helps if you quicksave and reload. Maybe it needs a reload of a previous map.

Highest Rated (7 agree) 10/10

One of the most challeging, punishing, cunning, rage-inducing and funniest mods I've got my hands on.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 4/10

The outrageous gameplay cast a damp over the extraordinary mapping. Too bad.
