Heart of Evil: Napalm Edition (HOE: NE) is a remake of the old mod Heart of Evil, a Vietnam themed war/survival horror FPS. The HOE NE Team hopes to help you relive that experience, or for those of you who haven't played it, a chance to try something new. They put a lot of work into the original concept and we want to it endure, for that reason we have updated the mod as best we can with graphics and gameplay.

After 2 years in development, Heart of Evil Napalm Edition is finally released to the public! Grab your flak jacket and M79, it's time to start shooting down helicopters onto on unsuspecting zombies...

Posted by on

After a long wait by members of the public (and the dev team) comes the release of Heart of Evil Napalm Edition! This mod is a total conversion for Half-Life, offering players the chance to dip into the crazy world of wartornzombieinfested Vietnam. A lot of work has gone into developing this mod, so we hope that you'll all enjoy it!

Download the mod here from MODDB

Download from Planet Phillip

Download from Half Life Creations

Download from Filefront

For players new to Heart of Evil, you are placed into the boots of Special Forces officer Captain Percy Freeman, who is tasked with despatching the villanous (and extremely mad) Colonel Kurtz. Not long after beginning your mission you are betrayed, and forced to find your way to Kurtz on foot.


Along your way you will have to deal with rogue US Soldiers - apparently they think you're a traitor, and have been tasked with hunting you down. Not only are there US Soldiers after you, but also Huey helicopters! These Helicopters are deadly since they have front gunners, side gunners, rocket launchers and the ability to drop off troops. You'll will need to carefully plan their movement around a Huey helicopter in order to take it out with an M79 or RPG-7!


After fighting your way past rogue US forces, you come up against the uglier side of war. Unkillable zombies! Or are they? Any sort of explosive will kill a zombie, anything less than that will knock them down momentarily.


Like the original Heart of Evil we have kept the vast free roaming environments, but we have made the puzzles within them more straightforward, so that backtracking is kept to a minimum. Objectives are clearly marked with glowing markers, and the levels are also considerably easier to navigate.

We would like to thank people who have been watching the mod so patiently - we hope this lives up to your expectations! Saddle up, lock and load and head into the world of Heart of Evil...

I like this mod a ton. Peeps need to get this out now. The hl mapping is very well crafted and you can tell there was effort. The only bug i noticed would have to be the random blacking out (unless blacking out when you walk into a corner is a dramatic effect). Great Job team regardless.

Playing it, and I can't even move. I start the game up, and I'm stuck in the bed under the fan.

Needs an emergency hotfix!

hey team napalm, I like the game alot.
But as i see it computers now days are just "to" fast to run goldsource games.
I get major skips all the time,even after i cap the frames.
Even though i cant play this, untill i get my pc thats been rusting in my closet working, looks great!

nah probably just the mod, try halflife or some other original game of the gldsrc engine and see if there's a difference. or running speed is increased.

I played the first version, and i got easily stuck because of all that damn backtracking. Now that it is not required anymore, the game is easier.

This remake mod is ****. It's riddled with so many memes and stupid **** it makes me want to vomit. The only thing good about this mod is that it's full of eyecandy but for some reason the guy in the loading room in the Alamo looks like he's got down syndrome. While playing singleplayer I tried getting in the back of the truck but I got stuck, then the truck started moving and I died. Then the game re-loaded and the guy who was supposed to drive me around was floating in midair, stuck. I had to restart about 3 times before getting anywhere. Not to mention the default controls are set as if we're still playing DOOM. The voiceacting is horribad also, and the General guy sounds ******* retarded. Great, I got stuck on Fatkin's desk because I hopped over the desk and the lady walked in and got me stuck, and now I'm stuck with Fatkins giving me a rimjob with his ******* lame lines.
At the real beginning of the game, when you're next to the helicopter, you can clip into the front of it.

You may want to play a bit more than the beginning of the game before judging the core aspects of the game itself. And also, how the heck is the voice acting bad? Which characters? The team had, like, 4 voice actors.

I'm not the only one who thought the mod was ****. And it's not like I was just like "LOL THIS MOD SUCKS MY ****" and left, I spent my time writing why I thought it sucked. There were TONS of bugs and errors with the mapping that I'm not sure if they were put in by accident or purposely added just to troll us. If not I seriously doubt they even played their own mod.

Didn't like the remake, missing the best part where you're in the cage with barney's head and playing the scifi minigame.

Out of that the mapping is good, the game itself is enjoyable, but the few "lololo kkkk" things in the game took me out of the atmosphere for a few minutes.

Crashes 15 seconds after I start playing. Is that because I'm using a Non-Steam version?

I'm stuck at the boathouse, I can't get barney to follow me to the boat so that I can continue. Please help. I've had noteably one other barney bug where I couldn't get him to follow me after I try to exit the hangar with the soldiers in it to the outside he gets stuck on the stairs and refuses to follow me. I need 1 of 2 things: 1) a patch, or 2) a spawn npc_barney command (because I don't know what the actual command is. Thanks guys! The game is freaking awesome I love it! Only I'm stuck so a patch for reported bugs pr something soon. Thanks. Amazing mod.

I like the improvements made to make the gameplay more manageable (I hated the original Heart of Evil for some of what they asked you to do). I just think the humor feels a little overdone. Then again, there were parts of the original Heart of Evil that had me scratching my head there, too.

I have been waiting for this game to be updated from the original for a while! I guess I've been living under a rock for some time. I copied the "Evil" folder into the half-life directory, but I still don't see how to actually run this mod. Forgive me for sounding like such a noob, but How do I actually play it? Did I indeed install it hcorrectly? Don't tell me the new Steam UI prevents playing this mod...

Hello I don't know if anyone posts things here anymore but I got a problem... On the first level where Barney opens the locked door and you go inside the cave, if you walk forward into the cave the game freezes, but the music is still playing, and I can't do ANYTHING, and I just end up restarting the computer... I don't know if this is a game glitch, Half Life Engine Glitch, or whatever... But if anyone has a answer to this problem please tell me because I don't know how to use cheats and I need a way to fix this... Also someone tell me how to use cheats in a Non-Source game...
