The '''Combine Binoculars''' is a telescope-like device used to observe distant objects.

The Combine Binoculars is a dark colored device with a shimmering blue lens with a green sight set into a small, compact set. The device can be fixed on the edge of a window, its tripod planted into the wall beneath. On the other side of the set seems to be some sort of rack with different lenses, possibly to be changed depending on the use.

The device is featured only once in ''Half-Life 2'', during Gordon Freeman's Highway 17 (Chapter)|journey along the Coast. There it is used by a squad of Overwatch Soldiers to observe New Little Odessa from a small house located at the other side of a bay.

After killing the Overwatch Soldiers stationed in the small house, Freeman himself can observe N.L.O. through the binoculars. There he witnesses Odessa Cubbage and the G-Man chatting at the top floor of N.L.O.'s main building, then going back inside together, and Rebels walking around, notably one of them pushing a dead Antlion Soldier|Antlion off the cliff. 

==Behind the scenes==
*Its name is based on that of its model.
*In the playable ''Half-Life 2'' Beta (in the map "d2_coast_02"), the house where it is to be found is empty.
*The binoculars are not present in the WikipediaXbox|Xbox version of ''Half-Life 2'', while they are in the WikipediaXbox|Xbox 360 ''Orange Box'' version.
*The Combine Binoculars in Garry's Mod have a shorter zoom distance than in ''Half-Life 2''. However using the Binoculars while using the Resistance Crossbow's zoom can increase the same zoom distance as in ''Half-Life 2''
