The '''Weapon Box''', also known as the '''Item Container''',Half-Life SDK|''Half-Life'' SDK is a container used by the Black Mesa survey teams to carry weapons, ammunition, and items on Xen.
*Most of the time, weapon boxes are found throughout Xen near the remains of Black Mesa Science Team|survey team members.
*In the multiplayer portion of the game, weapon boxes are dropped by dead players. When picked up, it gives the user ammunition and the last weapon used by the late player.
==Behind the scenes==
The Weapon Box appears to be based on the Backpack item from ''WikipediaQuake (video game)|Quake'' which shares the same purpose. Originally, the number 3 was written on the Weapon Box instead of 8. This can be seen in the source file for the texture in the ''Half-Life'' SDK.
