This chapter details Gordon Freeman’s infiltration in the Combine Citadel.
It is also a playground for the newly charged Gravity Gun, having many Combine Soldiers and Elites to kill.
After making his way into the Citadel, through use of a ‘Stalker pod,’ Gordon is caught in a Combine weapon confiscation field.
This destroys most of Gordon’s weapons, except for the Gravity Gun, which causes the field to malfunction and ‘overcharge’ the Gravity Gun.
The Gravity Gun becomes infused with dark energy, making it much more powerful, capable of picking up and throwing organic beings. Making use of the overcharged gravity gun, Gordon fights his way through the Citadel against large numbers of Combine soldier, as Dr. Breen tries, increasingly desperately, to convince Gordon to surrender.
Gordon is forced to enter another Stalker pod, and is quickly discovered by camera and transferred to the top of the Citadel to Breen’s office.
