The '''Roller Wand''' is a weapon cut from ''Half-Life 2''.


*It was probably to allow the player or Alyx to control reprogrammed Rollermines, or even Dog's ball in particular, as the Roller Wand's .cpp file in the ''Half-Life 2'' leak source code describes it as a ''"'weapon' what lets the player controll the rollerbuddy"'' sic, "rollerbuddy" probably referring to a "friendly" Rollermine (that text can also be found in the Portable Thumper's .cpp file, but this is likely a copy/paste oversight). It would have probably worked as Dog's hand when he catches its ball in the retail game.

*It could also simply be the predecessor to Alyx's EMP Tool, used in ''Episode One'' to reprogram Rollermines to help Freeman and her proceed.

*The Roller Wand script file found in the playable Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak files shows it was to temporarily use the S.L.A.M model as a placeholder. That script file is the only source for any information pertaining to the weapon.
