'''Dynamite''' is used several times by the HECU to block access to some areas of the Black Mesa Research Facility or to force access to areas blocked to them. 

==Overview==

*The dynamite is first seen in Sector E in the ''Half-Life'' chapter ''On A Rail''. There, dynamite traps, either triggered remotely or by tripwires, block the way to the High Altitude Launch Center. Several packs are set up above tracks in Sector E Materials Transport, others are set up in the stairs in the Launch Center's Launch Control building.

*In ''Uplink'', TNT dynamite is used by the HECU to blow up the locked door leading to Sector F's Transmitter Dome.

*In ''Opposing Force'', it is used by the HECU in the chapter ''Foxtrot Uniform'' to blow up a section of the Hydro-Electric Dam and destroy the Gargantua.

*Another appearance of dynamite in ''Opposing Force'' is a small charge of approximately 5 sticks sitting next to a dead soldier and scientist in a broken X-ray tunnel in Sector E. Shephard uses it to destroy the X-ray, allowing him to proceed.

*In ''Half-Life Blue Shift|Blue Shift'', HECU Marines attempt to blow up a door in the coolant generator area under Section A-17 Prototype Labs in the chapter ''Power Struggle'', but the wire is broken. Barney Calhoun reestablishes the link with a barrel, triggering the explosion and killing the soldiers.
