The '''Dock 137'''''Half-Life 2 Prima Guide'' also known as the '''Pier 137''' is a former Northern Petrol facility and a stopping point of the Coast levels.


Dock 137 consists of a small warehouse district and a pier, situated where the ocean and a dried up inlet meet. This area was used as a Resistance base for a time, but was occupied by the Combine prior to Gordon's arrival.

Several halls, sheds and hangars are located here, as well as a water tower and a magnetic crane, used previously for unloading ships, which are both overlooking the whole district. Many containers can be seen in the Dock 137, along with wooden crates, barrels and wrecked vehicles. Sands of the dry seabed, on which rest a couple of ships and wrecked boats, are home to many Antlions.

The Combine influence doesn't seem to be strong here. The only signs of its presence are a flipped over APC, a Thumper and Overwatch Soldiers, guarding the area.

After leaving New Little Odessa, Gordon arrives at Dock 137, where he clears the facility of Overwatch Soldiers and continues down the highway, only to be attacked by a Combine Gunship that has been radioed in.

==Behind the scenes==

*In ''Half-Life 2 Raising the Bar'', Laura Dubuk talks about the creation of the magnetic crane introduced at Shorepoint and featured again at Dock 137 "''When it came time to gather reference for the magnetic crane, I got my camera and a friend and I drove down to west Seattle where there are a number of them. For the crane interior, I used the inside of a bulldozer and the reference was complete.''"

*Before the game's release, most of Dock 137's features appeared in the E3 2003 map "e3_seafloor", which also included Lighthouse Point's lighthouse, after it was first used in the early Depot maps.WC mappack

*If the player pushes the APC into the water, he will receive a mission terminated message, the same as if he had pushed the Scout Car into the water.
*A FileCoastmap sheet.png|map of the Coast with the most significant Resistance bases can be found inside the biggest warehouse.
