The '''Combine Assassin''', also known as the '''Female Assassin''', the '''Robot Assassiness'''''Half-Life 2 Raising the Bar'' (Half-Life_2_Raising_the_Bar proof) or simply '''Assassin''', is an enemy cut from ''Half-Life 2'', and the successor to ''Half-Life''’s Black Ops|female assassin.

==Overview==
The Combine Assassin is a female soldier. She uses two automatic pistols (and originally some kind of rifle), and a variety of melee attacks to attack enemies. She is shown to be a quick and resourceful enemy, moving swiftly and performing flips, rolls, and other movements. She also wears heel springs that improve her movement and speed. The armor and padding are almost completely absent, allowing the assassin to move quickly. When she dies, the light on her helmet slowly goes off.Half-Life 2 leak|''Half-Life 2'' leak

Five individuals were to be seen "stored" frozen in Combine Assassin tank|tanks in the ''Borealis (cut ship)|Borealis''.

==Fate==
While the Combine Assassin had been cut from the final game, some parts of her model were recycled the helmet is used by the Overwatch Elite in ''Half-Life 2'' and Episodes, while the heel springs served as a base for the Advanced Knee Replacement in ''Portal'' and the Long Fall Boots in ''Portal 2''. The female Combine Sniper (Half-Life 2 Survivor)|Sniper in ''Half-Life 2 Survivor'' was also based on the Combine Assassin, with some changes in the vest and heel design.
