What are these laser tripwires for?



  • I found these laser tripewires in Black Mesa, right in front of a ground turret (you can see the turret's laser as well):

    What are these for? The turret? I thought they were laser mines, but they don't explode. They can't be damaged. If you walk through them they just beep.



  • What they do is activate the turret. You can see it's laser finder between the two beams there. Before you trip a wire, the turret is inactive, and won't do anything. You can use this to your advantage to avoid them when possible, or to locate the turret for destruction.

    Note that damaging the turret also activates it, so ensure you hit it hard enough to destroy it quickly.
