** The scientist in the locker room will talk about the HEV Mark [=IIIs=], which didn't have an optional helmet. One of the big debates about Half-Life was if Gordon was wearing the HEV helmet that you saw on dead Lambda Team members, since he was impervious to getting headcrabbed.

He also says that he designed the underwater breathing apparatus for the suit, but it didn't end up being used.

** On one of the bulletin boards is a note from Otis that Security Desk B3 needs more donuts, Otis being the fat security guard armed with a Desert Eagle in ''Opposing Force & Blue Shift''. You even find one instance of him holding a donut instead of practicing at the firing range in Blue Shift.

*** A guard says that Barney's bar tab is past due and he's dependent on others to buy him drinks. When you first meet him in HL2, he mentions that he owes you a beer. This in turn was reference to the generic guards' comments in ''Half-Life 1'', pre-disaster, where they'd say "Catch me later, and I'll buy you a beer."

** The Black Ops assassins have [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} heel springs]], which explains how they can jump around without breaking their legs. It's also rather funny when you realise that not only are the military trying to kill them. There doing so with gear from Black Mesa's primary competitor.

**** This is fixed in the retail version. After the sniper is killed, the scientist will be started, run into the nearby minefield, and die anyway.
