The '''M202A1 FLASH''' is a rocket launcher used by the HECU along the Black Mesa Transit System.

==Overview==

The M202A1 is used by the HECU in chokepoints around in the Black Mesa Research Facility, mostly in the Transit System. It fires powerful rockets that can cause significant damage if it makes a direct impact on the target. However, its splash damage does damage as well, so one should try to avoid being near a wall when seeing a M202A1 firing.

==Tactics==

*Enemies using the M202A1 are easy to kill, as they are immobile while using the weapon. A Mk 2 Grenade or MP5 grenade is enough to kill the weapon controller in one shot.

*Unlike the M2 Browning Machine Gun|M2, it is possible and easy to avoid projectiles fired by the M202A1, as it makes a loud sound when firing and its rockets are slow enough to be avoided by ducking.

==Trivia==

*The M202A1 fires the same rockets as that of the HECU RPG|RPG; the RPG laser can turn the M202A1 rockets back at it.
*The marine behind the M202A1 is not hostile and will not shoot at the player, even if standing directly in front of him or the player attacks him. However, this is fixed in Half-Life Source|Source version but the second M202A1 user is still same as the original ''Half-Life''.
