The '''Combine Dispenser''' is a device used to distribute several types of things. 


*In the City 17 Trainstation main hall, the Combine Dispenser distributes Standard Ration|food packages to Citizens, as seen in the ''Half-Life 2'' chapter ''Point Insertion''. In the chapter ''Water Hazard'', several dispense Manhacks.

*The food distributed from the ration dispenser apparently has a very unlikable taste as several Citizens can be heard commenting on the poor quality of the rations, even to the extent of considering joining Civil Protection "just to get a decent meal".

*The device is grey-blue and beige colored, and features "8991 C17 " on the bottom left, as well as what appears to be "xele 1022-1130" and "neld 0000-1021" right under.

*The player cannot use it.


*The dispenser also appears in the ''Half-Life 2 Deathmatch'' map "dm_lockdown", where it has the same function as the Charger.

*The food package works as a weapon, with an entity, since it technically works as a weapon for the Citizen NPCs. Typing the command "give weapon_citizenpackage" into the console gives the package worldmodel, though it appears improperly, as no viewmodel exists. Attempting to use it has no effect, and once another weapon is chosen, the package cannot be recovered. The HUD icon to appear after spawning is that of the cut MP5K, noted as "SMG1", its other name shared with the retail SMG, the MP7. A similar thing happens with Alyx's Gun, also spawning as the worldmodel since it is only intended to be used by Alyx, although it can be used.
