The '''Binoculars''' is an item (used as a weapon game-wise) cut from ''Half-Life 2''. It can be found in the Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak.

==Overview==

The Binoculars can zoom in to five times normal sight, however the player cannot fire weapons while using it. They  cannot be spawned with impulse 101; the code give weapon_binoculars must be entered.

According to the Binocular's code in the leaked source code, they were to have a black mask while zoomed in, a different crosshair and animations for zooming in.Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak source code

They were finally integrated into the HEV Suit as the "zoom" feature, and the Crossbow (Half-Life 2)|crossbow's scope. However, unused HUD icons for the Binoculars can still be found in the ''Half-Life 2'' files.

Sound files found in its related sound folder contain indistinct signal noises, garbled voice sounds and the excerpt of a yodeling song - "https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FIQIpKrmTY Der Böller-Schütz von Mittenwald" by Franzl Lang. The voice message and the yodeling appear to be from the http//www.simonmason.karoo.net/page12.html Tyrolean Music Station.
