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.

Another bug


On map hc2c13

While performing the track maze - at the junctions to flip the direction, sometimes when you flip the direction (more specifically flip it to the one you need) it will jam at times, and it jams when I load back and try again, I have to load a further back save and sometimes it will work - not sure what causes it.

Found a bug on hc2c5

******* SPOILERS ********

When in the Lambda Reactor Pool, after swimming past the 2 gates as they opened up, in the second pool with the rods, if you swim down to the bottom of the edges and crouch you can avoid radiation, which I believe to be intentional as a survival method included.

And I can autosave in this crouched underwater position
But if I hit escape, and click save and make a new save - when I come out of the menu system something instantly happens, all my HEV energy armor (60 or so) at the time has been totally depleted and sometimes the damage is so bad I die.

==== EDIT

Some idea of what is going on

There is a ridge you can pin yourself underneath so you don't uncrouch and expose yourself to the radiation again, and if I save there it is fine - so what I think is happening is while I hold crouch and hit escape, after it goes to the menu the crouch input stops and as this happens after the escape menu has opened - it starts counting the radiation damage while in the pause menu and maybe even at some accelerated rate from some unknown cause here as well - maybe even applies to the O2 somehow

But if this is the case then I imagine this is a bug within the game engine and not any bug on your part

But I'll leave this mention of it here none the less

The first obstacle is trying to find Hazardous Course 1 only to realize it doesn't exist. Only took me an hour.

The game crashes when trying to load the map after hc2c12 (the map with the speed limit puzzle). Some of the older comments state switching to Direct3D or the software renderer allows the map to load. However, in 2015, Valve removed Direct3D support from GoldSrc, and the game crashes (again) when trying to restart after selecting the software renderer, likely because I'm running Windows 10. Is there another way around this?

Try to add this line in liblist.gam in mod's folder (open file with Notepad and save changes):
edicts 2048

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