The '''Robot Grunt'''Half-Life SDK|''Half-Life'' SDK is a replacement for the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit Marines in the Censored versions of Half-Life|censored German version of ''Half-Life''.

Robot Grunts appear as armored bipedal humanoid robots with a dark green camouflage pattern covering their body and a single red eye offset to the left side of their head. Their limbs are connected by mechanical hinge joints. A player model version of the robot is also featured in the Half-Life (multiplayer)|multiplayer portion of ''Half-Life'' which defaults to an orange and red color scheme.

==Behind the scenes==
The Robot Grunts are referred to as WikipediaAndroid (robot)|Androids in the instruction manual for the German version of the game. The robot model was created by Andrew Phelan. He worked at Valve in collaboration with Cendant Ireland and Sierra Studios during the months of October through September as a freelance artist and created concept drawings and the character models for the German version of the game.

The Robot Grunts were updated for ''Half-Life Blue Shift|Blue Shift''. They appear to be using the updated Submachine Gun (Half-Life)|Submachine Gun model from ''Half-Life Opposing Force|Opposing Force''. The Half-Life High Definition Pack|High Definition version uses the updated weapon models.

The models were remade for the Half-Life (PlayStation 2 port)|PlayStation 2 version with a new look. In this version, their body color is army green with no camouflage pattern. They have the rank insignia of a corporal on their left arm and a white star surrounded by a circle on their chest. This symbol is similar to the "Star and Circle" marking used by the Allied forces in WikipediaWorld War II|World War II. The same symbol is also used by the Opposing Force team in the Half-Life (multiplayer) Opposing Force|Capture the Flag mode of ''Opposing Force''.

The Robot Grunts are also used in the German version of ''WikipediaTeam Fortress Classic|Team Fortress Classic'', replacing all the character models.

==In modding==
The green camouflaged version appears in the mod ''Sven Co-op''. A blue-colored friendly variant is also present.
