The '''Human Sergeant''' is a Hazardous Environment Combat Unit|HECU class cut from ''Half-Life''.

==Overview==
FileHuman Sarge.jpg|Concept art.|thumb|200px|left
*Originally showcased in gameplay videos of early ''Half-Life'' builds, the Human Sergeant can be found in the ''Half-Life'' model files, as many other enemies cut from the game. He is also featured in the ''Half-Life'' SDK files, where larger texture files can be found.
*As a squad leader of some sorts, he was to smoke a cigar, have a flattop haircut and a bad attitude. He was also to command grunt squads and be in radio contact with command.
*According to his concept art image featured in ''Raising the Bar'', he was originally to use an WikipediaM60 machine gun|M60 for spray attack and fire rockets with his dual WikipediaAnti-tank warfare|LAW rocket launchers. In the final NPC, the M60 was replaced by a Minigun and the rocket launchers by a backpack.''Half-Life'' game files A Combat Knife|Combat knife can also be seen attached on his belt, although it is only part of his textures.
*While the most complete name for the Human Sergeant is provided in ''Raising the Bar'' (where it is misspelled as "Sargeant"), he has several other names. In the ''Half-Life'' files, his model and sound file folders are named "hassault" (for "human assault"); in the ''Half-Life'' SDK files, his folder is named "Hvyweapons" (for "heavy weapons"), while his .qc files use the terms "human heavy weapons" and "heavy weapons character".
*His sound file folder in Half-Life only contains the sounds for his Minigun, not his voice. However, in the Half-Life 0.52 Alpha, there is one voice clip, called hw_alert, in which the Sergeant shouts "YOU DEAD!! YA HEAR ME?!? DEAD!!".
*His face was reused with slight modifications for the Afro-American HECU soldier featured among the four original HECU models.

==Trivia==

*The Human Sergeant appears in ''Half-Life'' mods such as ''Half-Life Point of View'', ''Sweet Half-Life'', or ''Sven Co-op'' (where the Sergeant's Minigun can be used by the player).
