I'm the author of this guide, and I strongly feel that I'm the right person to make a Half-Life 2 Deathmatch guide. This is because I'm very formidable at this game, especially with the Magnum. Many servers are filled with newbies, and I want to do something about it. I've decided to make this guide in order to give other players new ideas, strategies, how to make their game better, and generally how to make it more fun and easy for them. Althought this is a guide for newer players, you should still read it if you're advanced. You'll learn stuff not posted anywhere else, and perhaps reach a level much higher than where you are now. If you ever want to play me, check out the [BMC] servers at http://bmcclan.gamerzunlimited.net/ to check if I am online or not and am currently playing. My game name is [BMC]Headjob or [BMC](Korean Letters), if you want to know. When you come, be sure to tell me how you know me at first, as I'm very grumpy against suprising strangers! I've gotten several different game aliases as well: - HeadJob - Headcrab - Ms. Nana - Arachnid - The Human Isotope - More, although I have the following names above almost all the time. NEW: Our main server has changed to the CTF mod. Go check the servers at http://gamerzunlimited.com as well to see if I'm playing DM. *=========================================* |Sub-Chapter 1-3: The HL2 Compendium [A03]| *-----------------------------------------* The HL2 Compendium is a glossary full of commonly used Half-Life 2 terms and acronyms during in-game, forums, chatrooms, etc. ========== ===| Acronyms |=== ========== AFK: Away From Keyboard/A Free Kill AKA: Also Known As AR: Assault Rifle (The Overwatch Standard Issue) ASAP: As Soon As Possible AUX: Auxilary (Auxilary power is what allows you to sprint, swim, etc.) BG: Bad Game BRB: Be Right Back BTW: By The Way CS:S: Counter-Strike: Source DM: Deathmatch FPS: First-Person Shooter G2G: Got to Go GTG: Got to Go FF: Friendly Fire FYI: For Your Information GG: 1.

Minimum 2. Minute(s) OHK/O: One-Hit Kill/Knock Out OMFG: Oh My ****ing God OMG: Oh My God OSI: Overwatch Standard Issue N00B: Newbie NM: Nevermind NP: No Problem NVM: Nevermind REV: Revolver ROFL: Rolling On the Floor Laughing RPG: Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher SEC: Second SMG: Sub-Machine Gun (Heckler & Koch MP-7 PDW) TDM: Team Deathmatch TK: Team Kill TY: Thank You WTF: What the **** WTH: What the Heck/Hell ============== ===| The Glossary |=== ============== Aim Bot: Aim Bot is a hack that automatically aims for a player, allowing him to easily and quickly get headshots, kills, etc. Alternate Grenade Throw: A beefed up version of the original Grenade throw, assissted by the Gravity Gun. Automatic Reloading: This is a technique in which a player reloads all his weapons excluding Slot 3 Weapons and the one he is currently holding without even going through the reload animations. Boomer Shots: These are RPG shots that travel around like a boomerang to hit enemies on tricky terrains and such. Camping: This is a tactic where a player stays in a limited amount of area, waiting for enemies to pass by. When one does, the camper kills the enemy by surprise, either the plain old way or with traps such as SLAM devices. Cheap: Players often call anything that is seemingly unfair "cheap." Of course, balanced games do not have anything "cheap," with the exception of hacks, cheats, and exploitable glitches. Chickening: Chickening is when a player cowers during battle and runs away. Fort Camp: A team tactic that requires a tower-like area and several people. At least one person snipes or rocket launches enemies, while others defend those people and support each other. Gravity Gun Jumping: GG Jumping is a special trick that allows a player to jump higher than usual. Grenade Cooking: Refer to Grenade Launch. Grenade Launch: The Grenade Launch is a tactic where one tosses a grenade, grabs it with his Gravity Gun, then timely shoots it at opponents to blow them away. Hack: Simply put, a hack is a program that gives a player abusable cheats in online play. Kamikaze: This is when a player suicides but not in vain, meaning that he takes out one or multiple foes as well in his death. Newbie: A newbie is somebody new to something. OHK: One-Hit Kill Pubmaster Walking: Description is too long. Look up [PMW]. Rush: This is when one team quickly attacks or invades the other team in a team-based game. This term is not often used in HL2 DM, with the exception of special team maps such as CTF Fort, Objective Kinyoenta Evolution, etc. SLAM Cook: Refer to SLAM Launch. SLAM Launch: It's a tactic similar to the Grenade Launch. Rather than using your grenade, you toss out a SLAM, catch it with your GG, shoot it, then detonate it. Splash: Splash is the damage given by an indirect hit of an explosive damage. For example, the RPG's splash is huge and hits enemies whether or not you have directly hit them. You'll just have to aim close enough, which isn't really hard. Sprint Jumping: The HL2 counterpart of HL's bunny hopping, sprint hopping is a technique where a player timely jumps and sprints in order to acquire high speeds without hogging up all his AUX power. Sniper: A player with a deadly weapon suited for far-range combat is a sniper. Spawn: Spawning is when you get revived after dying. T(eam) SLAM Launch: It's just like the SLAM launch, only that two people are performing it instead of one and that one detonates it, while the other shoots it. This is far better than the original one. Wall Hacking: Wall Hacking is a cheating method that allows a player to see through walls, allowing him to see where everything from players to weapons are. You can only wall hack if you risk being "BANNED" from Steam, getting a virus, and download a hack. *===================================================* |==========*-----------------------------*==========| |==========| Chapter 2: Setting Up [B00] |==========| |==========*-----------------------------*==========| *===================================================* Before you start game play, it's essential that you set up your game in the ways you prefer. In this chapter, you'll learn some basic and essential things, such as how to turn on the console, what you graphic settings you should use, useful console commands, etc. *=========================================================* |Sub-Chapter 2-1: Configuring Video & Sound Settings [B01]| *---------------------------------------------------------* ================ ===| Video Settings |=== ================ After starting HL2 DM, go to Options > Videos. If you've got a very good computer, use the highest resolution that fits your computer screen. If you've got a computer that runs a bit slowly, I recommend you to use 800 x 600 or 640 x 480 (800 x 600 preferably). If you want your game to run on a window, then click the multi-box that says "Run Game on Window," and click On. After that, click on Advanced Settings. Now, configure things the way you want. However, if you want your computer to run smoothly during game play and look as good as possible at the same time, I recommend you to use settings that have a * next to them, as that is a sign that recommends you to use a certain setting. ================ ===| Sound Settings |=== ================ There are many people having trouble with sound and having their voice heard in online play. You can try to find out what's wrong by going to Options > Sounds. In there, you'll get to test your microphone and configure your sound settings. If the Sound section does not fix your problems, quit Half-Life and right click on the Sound Icon at your Task Bar. Click open, and configure your sound settings. If all other options do not work, it may be because of your speakers/microphone. Be sure to check if it is sound, healthy, and working. ============================= ===| Recommended Sound Equipment |=== ============================= Headphones are one of the best sound equipment for serious gamers. It creates an atmosphere that can be heard. When an enemy is walking behind you, you can hear it unlike when you have two speakers. It's create for hearing where enemies are. For this, people thought I was cheating as I killed people listening as they gave away their position! Surround Sound and other things are great, but they're way more expensive. *=======================================================* | Sub-Chapter 2-2: Configuring Controls & Console [B02] | *-------------------------------------------------------* It's important to configure your controls so that you're comfortable. Here are a bunch of "pre-sets" of controls you can use. I'll also assume that you have a mouse with at least 3 buttons and a desktop keyboard. Also, keep in mind that in order to have two keys/buttons bound to the same command, you have to bind it again when you quit and restart the game, as the key you bound later will be the key you have to use and the other key won't come to use. ================================== ===| The Classical WSAD Configuration |=== ================================== This configuration is the most similar to the default one, and is the most comfortable for most players as well. It's easy to get accustomed to, and perhaps is the best one to choose, although it doesn't matter too much. Configure it as much as you want to your liking. W: Forward A: Strafe Left S: Backward D: Strafe Right ,: Swim Up .: Swim Down Mouse1: Primary Fire Mouse2: Secondary Fire R: Reload Mouse3: Suit Zoom Mouse3 Wheel Up: Unbound Mouse3 Wheel Down: Jumping Mouse4 or G: Gravity Gun Shift: Sprint Alt: Walking Tab: Scoreboard ~: Console Y: Public Message U: Team Message T: Tag Spray E: Use Q: Quick Weapon Switch 1-5: Weapon Slots 1-5 ============================== ===| The Arrow Keys Configuartion |=== ============================== The Arrow Keys configuration is perhaps the second most popular method, asA many people use it as well. Though I may get some of the key's commands incorrect, this is similar to what the common Arrow Keys configuration is. Because it's off to the common method, configure it as much as you want. Arrow Up: Forward Arrow Left: Strafe Left Arrow Back: Backward Arrow Right: Strafe Right Num-Pad 0: Swim Up .: Swim Down Mouse1: Primary Fire Mouse2: Secondary Fire Mouse3: Suit Zoom Mouse3 Wheel Up: Unbound Mouse3 Wheel Down: Jumping Mouse4 or 7 on Num-Pad: Gravity Gun Num-Pad Numbers 1-5: Weapon Slots 1-5 Enter: Public Message : Team Message ~: Console Page Down: Use Delete: Quick Weapon Switch End: Scoreboard Page Up: Spray Tag =================== ===| Mouse Sensitivity |=== =================== Mouse sensitivity is a major part of the game as well. I use sensitivity 2.7 with default mouse settings for my computer. It may be harder to move around with such a low sensitivity if you're just starting out and you may fashion 10-15 sensitivity, but just try out low ones. You may like it. Sure, you can turn around quickly if it's high, but if you're comfortable enough with low sensitivity, you can do so neraly as quickly and more precisely. Low sensitivity also makes your aim better, as you're easily able to move the crosshair just a tad bit to get nice headshots. Don't worry if you're comfortable with 15 sensitivity. That has its advantages, too. It's all a matter of preference, but try out all kinds of sensitivity. ========================= ===| Useful Console Commands |=== ========================= This is, without doubt, one of the most useful sections, as it goes over some of the most useful, yet unknown console commands. However, these are only a VERY FEW commands; if you want more, search at places such as cheat websites and such. First of all, in order to even have access to the console, go to Options > Keyboard > Advanced, then enable console. If you do not know what the console is, you've come to the right place. The console is a powerful tool that allows you to do the following commands: cheat in multiplayer, change your mouse's sensitivity, having a different key perform a special function, etc. There are limitless possibilities in what you can do with this handy tool. Some commands require you to add a variable, number, or words after the command itself. It's also very important that if you're about to add a variable with a space in it, you must add quotation marks before and after it. *===========================================================================* | Console Commands | *===========================================================================* | Console Command Command's Action Description | |===========================================================================| | sensitivity "number" | Changes your mouse's movement | | | sensitivity. | | | | | zoom_sensitivity "number" | Changes your mouse's movement | | | sensitivity while using the | | | Crossbow or HEV Suit Zoom. However, | | | the zoom sensitivity is actually | | | multiplied by your unzoomed | | | sensitivity, then halved. The | | | equation would be  x  = 1 if | | | your sensitivity is 1 and your zoom | | | sensitivity is 2. | | | | | sv_cheats "1" or "0" | Enables/Disables cheats. This only | | | works in single player or if you | | | have admin access to the server. | | | | | noclip | Allows you to go through walls if | | | cheats are allowed. | | | | | impulse 101 | Gives you all available weapons. | | | Only works if cheats are on. | | | | | phys_swap | Changes the current weapon you are | | | holding to the Gravity Gun and vica-| | | versa. | | | | | kill | Makes you suicide. | | | | | record "desired demo name" | Starts to record your gameplay. | | | | | stop | Stops recording your demo. | | | | | playdemo "desired demo name" | Plays the demo you have chosen. | | | | | name "insert desired name" | Changes your name. | | | | | | | | quit | Exits the game. | | | | | retry | Reconnects to the server. | | | | | | | |___________________________________________________________________________| | | *===========================================================================* *===============================================* | Sub-Chapter 2-3: Configuring your Client [B03]| *-----------------------------------------------* This section basically goes over configuring your player model, spray tag, custom name, etc. Player Name: Just put in your desired alias. Note that you can use NON-ASCII characters. This includes foreign language text as well. For example, you can have a Japanese name with a phone icon next to it, or use fancy non-ASCII characters in your clan tag. Spray Tag: Half-Life 2 offers you a wide range of pre-built spray tags, and without any texture expertise, you can now use your own custom spray tags. Just save or make a picture in a format that HL2 can read, then just make it your spray tag. Voila, you've got a custom spray tag. Player Model: Your player model isn't just for show, but it affects what team you're in in a team deathmatch server and which melee weapon you'll start out with. For example, if you are using a rebel model, you'll start out with the Crowbar. Combine model users will start out with the stunstick. Note that Team Deathmatch servers may change your player model depending on whether they make you join the opposite team of your desired model. *=============================================================* |==========*---------------------------------------*==========| |==========| Chapter 3: The Weapons // Items [C00] |==========| |==========*---------------------------------------*==========| *=============================================================* This is where a major bulk of strategies for your imagination will come, as this chapter will tell you everything each of the weapons does and how it can be used to it's full potential, which may give you some creative strategies in your mind. If that's not enough, I'll list some efficient ones as well, both popular and uncommonly used. Be sure to read about EVERY single weapon! The chapters will go over every weapon's name, how much ammunation they can hold, the best range to use them at, their attack speed, damage, and a description. NOTE: Headshots deal triple the damage of a normal shot from a weapon. Armor absorbs 80% of damage dealt by weapons. For example, being shot by one MP-7 bullet takes away 1 HP and 4 AP. If you have less than 4 AP, the rest of the damage is dealt to your HP. Use subtraction and division to find out the rest. The Weapon Tier List (The tier list is a list of weapons organized from the best to least best weapon in metagames, which are games where two perfectly equally skilled players fight each other. This tier list was made by me and was intelligently made with reason, a lot of research, and tons of trial and errors. Also, the tier list applies more to very high levels of play rather than newbies. For example, the Magnum would be very bad for a FPS newbie.) TOP - Magnum - RPG - Crossbow HIGH - Combine Energy Orb - MP-7 Grenade - Grenade MIDDLE - Shotgun - Pulse Rifle - Pistol LOWER - Sub-Machine Gun - Stun Stick - Crowbar - SLAM VERY SITUATIONAL - Gravity Gun The Magnum, without a doubt, is the best weapon in terms of high levels of play. A headshot deals 225 and has instant bullet time. You'll need at least 126 HP with full Health to survive a head shot, and even then, you'll always end up with 1-75 remaining health, which is just enough for another Magnum shot. The RPG is a very good weapon as well, but it takes a while for that RPG to reach areas. It's slow in many aspects. However, it's almost always an assured kill. It's splash damage is very situational as well. MOST of the time, it comes to your advantage to easily hit your enemy and for multi-kills. Unlike the Magnum, you may end up killing yourself up close. A great thing is that you can guide the RPG. The Crossbow is very slow in many aspects as well. It has an actual bullet time, thus hindering its sniping abilities you were able to score with in Single Player. Also, it has no headshot bonus. However, the tier list assumes you are always hitting your enemy. In that case, the Crossbow is a godly weapon in maps with very little batteries and such. It can push your enemy quite a distance as well, spacing him for a quick Shotgun or Magnum shot. The Combine Orb is great, but is slightly overrated. Anyone who's got his catching skills down will capture them most of the time. They take a while to reach the opponent, but the great thing is that they ricochet around and kill in a single hit. They can be improved with the Gravity Gun catch trick as well, but it'll take much longer to launch it as well. It's fun to boost team mates in non-FF servers with this. The MP-7 Grenade is about as strong as the Grenade and can get kills against enemies with 100/100 as well in certain times. It kills very easily and quickly in close combat, but is hindered in far range combat. It's great for spacing enemies like as with the Crossbow as it pushes your enemy upwards with its explosion. The Grenade Launch is a very scary technique. The reason why it's higher than the Shotgun and other is because it's good for nearly all ranges. It can get a kill most of the time, distorts your enemy's aiming, deafens him, and has good control. Ah, the shotgun. It's a very good weapon, but is very hard to use as well. With the Rapid Shotgun glitch, it's a beast, although it's rather cheap and unfair in that case. The Shotgun can kill faster than a Crossbow in close range, strangely, but lacks in other situations. Still, it's a great and fun weapon to use that is highly underestimated. The Pulse Rifle isn't all too special and great without its orbs. Sure, it is strong, but the Grenade itself is still better. It's very accurate, but because of its strange burst action, its hard to get headshots with whenever you want to. It's pretty much like an automatic Pistol, as they deal nearly similar damage. The Pistol, almost unbelievably, is a pretty decent weapon, better than the Crowbar, MP7, and Stunstick. In extremely high leveled meta games, the Pistol would deal one less damage for each shot, but at a much faster rate, all because of its headshots! They can deal 24 damage from almost any distance while the Crowbar can only deal 25 up close, and it swings oh-so slowly. However, I doubt much people would still bother with the Pistol. It's just very hard to get headshots every shot, after all, and HSing your enemy 4 times, then shooting them once anyway you prefer just to kill a 100/0 guy. The MP-7 is highly inaccurate and almost never get headshots unless you're very close. It's just so easy to use, which is why everyone uses it as their starting weapons. Well, almost everyone. The Stun Stick is very situational. It's all about spacing and how well you're using your Auxilary power. Strangely, it's often bad to jump with the Stun Stick when fighting a Crowbar user, as it leaves you extremely vulnerable to multiple whacks. However, because of its range, you can some times win a Stun Stick vs Crowbar without ever getting touched as long as your sprint doesn't run out. The Crowbar is near the bottom of the line; sorry Crowbar fans. It does get to shine more than the MP7 certainly, but it's just way too situational. The Crowbar isn't a very bad weapon just because it's bottom; if you're better than your opponents at movement, you're a force to be reckoned with when going on a rampage with the Crowbar. The SLAM is pretty bad in normal DM. It's much better at Team Deathmatch. Even though, vigilant enemies will almost never fall for them. However, with team work, SLAMs are quite fun and deadly, as well as a heck of a lot more useful. The Gravity Gun is very situational. It can sometimes be the best weapon of all time during combat, while at other times, it's very useless. It has many factors including your health, your enemy's health, the map location, the props, etc. *=================================================* | Sub-Chapter 3-1: Melee // The Gravity Gun [C01] | *-------------------------------------------------* Weapon Name: Crowbar Ammunition: N/A Range: Hits Only at Very Close Speed: Medium Damage: 25 Primary Fire: Swing Secondary Fire: N/A Description: The crowbar is a melee-only weapon, obviously. It's great for sneaking up on someone, as it takes only 4 swings to take out an unarmored enemy. However, once your enemy sees you and starts to back up, be sure to sprint and swing at him in order to catch up. Never use the crowbar in a beserek manner where you can be shot from far away, as players who act in such a frenzy manner will never reach his victim if the prey just keeps sprinting back and delivers bullets. The Crowbar is also a good weapon to finish off an enemy with if the two of you are very close, you run out of ammunition, and you have some spare stamina to chase down your enemy with if he attempts to run away from your Crowbar swings. You can only acquire this weapon if you're using a rebel model. A DEEPER LOOK: Thanks to a friend of mine, (smb)crowbar of death, I've been able to see how to truly use the Crowbar well. It does an awesome amount of damage, which is 25. 3 USP bullets or a headshot does only 24, while 5 SMG bullets or a headshot followed with two bullets does only 25. Of course, the Crowbar beats such weapons in average damage per second, but only if you're close. How do you get so close up then? Sneaking up works, but always SPRINT. You'll catch your enemy quickly, whether he is aware of you or not. After you hit your opponent, keep circling around him while sprinting and whacking your crowbar at him. He'll have difficulty keeping up, and if he manages to, he'll be too late. Do the same thing against other melee players. Basically, if you're versing another Crowbar user, whoever manages to hit first, circle around, and land more hits will be victorious. Against stun stick, you'll have to be in their face all the time. The crowbar deals more damage per second, but the Stun Stick has better range. You'll want a healthy amount of sprint before attacking one because most Stun Stickers love to hit and run. Circling around them is great, as if they miss a swing, they'll lose for sure. GOD BLESS CROWBAR OF DEATH. HAVE A GOOD TIME IN HEAVEN. [Yes, I am
