Half-Life Easter Egg - Hidden Name

About a third of the way through the "On a Rail" segement. I don't think I can accurately
describe where it is exactly so any help would be appreciated. :) Anyway, there is a place
where you can go under a ramp that goes to an upper level, break a box and a grate and drop
down into a vent shaft. Follow it and eventually come to an army grunt body there seems to
be a piece of machinery or somethng with short dead-end halls on each side of it. (There may
be some head-crabs here, so watch it.) On the left side (closest to where you entered) aginst
the back wall there seems to be writing in the texture on the wall. Look carefully it is very hard to see. It says "RILLER". Dave Riller is a level designer at Valve.

Good one! I've been trying to send it too but failed to give a clear explanation ("instructions were unclear or hard to understand")... The exact level is c2a2c (type "/map c2a2c" in Console omitting quotes to get there). And the word "RILLER" is not written on the wall texture, these are 3D-letters, one unit deep, seen only because of lighting.

It helps to see the message if you lob a few grenades or sachel-charges into the alcove to blacken the texture of the wall so it stands out when viewed at an angle.

I caught this one too. Had to whip out the MP5 and shoot some bullet holes to clarify.

"Riller" i beleive is a designer of the game or playd a part in it in some way. If you look at the beginning credits when you are in the train his name will appear. Just watch them until you see it

I though I was the only one who found that! I've never known what was meant by "RILLER" though, so thanks for that info!

Are you using a mod? I don't think that's what the bee gun looks like
