After making his way through warehouses filled with Race X creatures and Black Ops fighting, Adrian Shephard arrives at an old industrial area of Black Mesa where an enormous Gene Worm is attempting to come through a portal from the Race X homeworld.
Shephard uses mounted laser weapons to blind and kill it; in its death throes, an enormous teleportation portal spreads outwards and envelops him.
Shephard regains consciousness inside a V-22 Osprey, confronted by the mysterious G-Man. As the G-Man talks to Shephard a white flash occurs in the distance, indicating that Black Mesa has been destroyed by the nuclear warhead.
The G-Man then informs Shephard that he will be detained “in a place where you can do no possible harm, and where no harm can come to you.” He explains this is done since Shephard reminds him of himself, but is still a dangerous witness. The G-Man walks into a portal, Shephard is detained and the end credits roll.
- Easter egg: If the player uses a console command to view the skybox from within the V-22 Osprey during the G-Man sequence, there is a hidden message on the upper skybox texture. The message reads: “HACK HACK HACK ALL DAY LONG. HACK HACK HACK WHILE I SING THIS SONG [sic].” This poem is a reference to Adam Sandler’s song, The Beating of a High School Janitor. This can also be found by viewing the game files. It probably references to the fact that the developer used hack to make the skybox look like it was changed by rotating the camera while not changing the textures themselves.
