Gah! They took it out because it was too hard. If you visited the HL2 forums you'd know. :nono:

That thing is called the Hydra. It was sopposed to be used in the Nova Komplex (sp?) level. They spent around 6 months coding it, but in the end it was cut because it was impossible to fight/kill. They said that it was cool watching other people get killed by it, but whenever it attacked you, it would only be a blurr and then you would be dead. This was down right aggravating, so they cut it. Some say it's because the "A.I. wasn't working" others say "The A.I. was too good. It could kill you in a few secconds everywhere in the game." I have no idea as to why they cut it, but I'm going to go with the fact that it was impossible to fight.

So yeah, they spent a lot of time working on the Hydra but in the end they realised it wasn't going to work.

It was a scene that was well placed in the HL2 Flash demos, but obviously did not fit into the final build of the game itself.

Nova prospect?

Hydra was said to be so intelligant and could find you and kill you at any part of the game (or level) so it was cut.
