Scientist Hunt is a Half-Life modification which makes murdering scientists the objective of the game. There are two teams, and each team must compete to murder more scientists than the other team in one of three separate modes of play. SH also features two non-team-based modes of play with entirely different player scenarios, named Live In Fear and Madness. New features include enhanced scientist physics, completely new scientist AI, and much more.


This mod was developed by Rich Whitehouse (http://www.richwhitehouse.com) and Brian McClelland (Hondo). The last official release (1.2) was in 2001 for the WON version of Half-Life but fan-made patches exist for the Steam version. It is also playable on WON2 and will also be playable on NeuWON.

Steam version

News 2 comments

A Steam compatible version of Scientist Hunt has been released! This is small update fixes errors when running on the Steam platform, such as lack of key bindings. The changes are:

Ingame action Ingame action Hundreds Of Scientists

  • Added Steam support
  • New splash screen
  • New games icon

This is an optional update as no core files have been changed. The original mod was created by Rich Whitehouse, I merely converted it. If anyone is interested I can run a dedicated server for a few days.

Any steam servers? Or do I have to dig through my CD collection for half life platinum and get this installed onto it and get WON2 installed then fix my CD popout tray?

I see no servers when I click Find Servers

I host a WON2 server for Scientist Hunt, however I may just host a Steam server for it as well if people really do want to play this on Steam HL. I suppose that's how I played it initally too.
