The '''Archer'''''Half-Life'' game files is an alien cut from ''Half-Life''. It can be found in the game files.

The Archer's model has the size of a small shark. A fish-like creature, it was to be met underwater.

==Behavior and skills==
According to its animations, it was to bite the player, and shoot from its mouth an unknown substance, possibly a toxic spit or water-based projectile, an attack also seen in the Bullsquid.

*Its name is most likely based on that of the real world WikipediaArcherfish|archerfish, as they share similar behaviors.
*In the ''Half-Life'' mod ''Azure Sheep'', the Archer is fought in combat, mostly in the chapter ''Liquids'', where it bites the player. The sound files used are very distorted Ichthyosaur sounds. It also appears in another mod, ''Point of View''.
