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.

Finally getting around to making a review for this fantastic, brutal Half-Life mod classic of epic proportions. Scientist Hunt.., where do I begin? Firstly, this mod is old-school. Only your dads like me know about this mod. Second, it had great maps. Make sure to turn on violence mode to enable gibs unless you're son is playing. (Command is violence_hblood and violence_hgbibs.) This mod is badass and has lots of guns (2nd Amendment triggered yet liberals?) but not enough weapons as Scientist Slaughter house. If scientist slaughterhouse and scientist hunt combined, it would make the dream half-life mod for gore & killing scientists. I created my own map for hunting and killing scientists called Doktorwhiplashb7 for Sven co-op.This mod brings back memories of hanging out in IRC chats and killing sci's to kill the time, if you now what I mean. Anyways Doktorwhiplash gives this the Half-Life mod SEAL of APPROVAL for being a hit classic and memorable mod.Make sure to pick up the HD map pack and HD weapons and HD gore mods to enhance the experience and go slaughter some ******' scientists to that Metallica (Ride the lightning, Master of Puppets prefered) >:) \m/ Dok' out!!!

Since KingCuckold's servers are down for now, I've decided to start hosting Steam versions of my WON2 servers (including SciHunt). If it doesn't show up in the server browser, just add: servers.bloodbathsoftworks.com:27054
