Energy Weapons Testing Facility

for Half-Life

3rd November 1999

Author Notes:

“My first Half-Life level, and yes, it’s a scientist killing level. No co-op, deathmatch, or difficulty settings here, just a single player map. No new sounds, graphics, monsters, demos, or models, just plain old boring Half-Life. Wait a minute; “boring Half-Life” – isn’t that an oxymoron?”


Something is amiss in this scientist killing level. The Administrator has come to inspect it, to be sure it’s ‘up to SKC standards’ (or so he claims). What he doesn’t realize is that you have already entered the level, and have followed him through a teleporter. Ahead lies the Firing Chamber, where you just might be able to put the Administrator out of his misery

  1. Maybe?

    Single map. Looks like a practise map for Mr Edwards. Good textures and colour. Sparse layouts. Pointless gameplay.
    Chris, make a First Person Shooter with enemies, puzzles and goals.

    Not a lot of point to this one, an over elabotate means of killing off a certain HL1 guy. Yes, that it and other then seeing how he is killed off, it’s not worth the download.

  3. I’ve added 4 screenshots kindly supplied by piledriver.

    hey what do I do in this map

    EWTF was one of the maps that was made for the Scientist Killing Club – the name tells it all I guess.

    Here’s more info about the Club, which unfortunately no longer exists…

  6. fadi

    what should we do

  7. Boring & pointless.


    -Where to start?

  8. I skipped this one because there’s not a link. Is this one still available??

    1. Unq

      Added the link. Fair warning on the lack of quality though.
