Cities, also known as Metropolitan Areas, are large, Combine-urban controlled communities. Each city has a Nexus and often local Resistance cells. Union forces and large walls keep cities safe from alien wildlife like antlions and headcrabs.
List of Major Cities[edit | edit source]
NOTE: The following list is not canon. City 17 is the only combine-controlled city known in HL2. Do not under any circumstance claim otherwise if you are a Lore Writer on a server!
City 1: "Located in New York, New York City. The Combine established it as the luxurious resort for all combine loyalists that have earned the title of Golden tier loyalty, these are very rare but seeing as there are multiple cities it is sanctioned that loyalists who have reached this achievement have been given the chance to relocate to this utopia."
City 2: "Located in Florence, Italy. The billboards around express the Italian language and also the construction style." (Location difference)
City 3: "Located in Moscow, Russia.''
City 4: "Located in Abuja, Nigeria"
City 5: "Located in Seattle, Washington. A Large populated isolated city that is left mostly in ruins and frequent antlion attacks, With the Needle used as a Combine Nexus to over look the city. As from above the Administrator of the city would be present mostly. Nothing else would be present and the city is mostly left to bits and abandoned."
City 6: "Located in London, England. The Combine damaged London severely during the 7 Hour War, with many of its historical monuments reduced to shambles. The Shard and the Tower of London still remain however. The Combine established the Tower of London as a Loyalist paradise. The Shard was transformed into a major Nexus headquarters for the Civil Protection. The London eye is destroyed and parts float around in the Thames making it easy to loot for metal to sell. Buckingham palace is used as a housing complex for loyalists with a silver tier loyalty level. This complex has its own Combine guards who wear a unique blue outfit. The Houses of Parliament are used as a large Combine garrison for synth forces. The tower bridge has not been touched during the war and is fairly in decent shape as the combine use it for checkpoint around the parts of London. Antlion attacks are frequent in this city, though in recent years the Combine has established large thumpers on the outskirts of the city which have greatly restricted the annual attacks. City 6 is one of the most well-established cities in Europe, only being succeeded by City 14 and 17."
City 7: "Located in Toronto, Canada. The city is now in ruins and harsh brutal dictatorship by the combine and citizens suffer every day from attacks by antlions or combine rule." (Location difference)
CIty 8: "Located in Tokyo, Japan. City 8 is a large metroplex and one of the most populated cities in the world. Being as compact a city as it is, anti-citizen activity is hard to monitor with the limited number of Civil Protection units on patrol though more scanners have been put into play recently to try and monitor known hotspots."
City 9: "Located in Norilsk, Russia. City 9 is the most northern city in the world controlled by the Combine. It is incredibly remote and is comprised of mostly Soviet apartment blocks. It is so remote that there isn't even a train station meaning citizens being relocated have to be transported with the help of Dropships. City 9 has 1,568 civilians living there. The Nexus is located in the south-western region of City 9, the Universal Unions occupation there is small, there is 349 Civil Protection, no Gunships, 1 Dropship, 3 APC's, 1 Strider, 2 Hunter Choppers, 3 OTA patrolling the outskirts and 1 Combine Elite. The outskirts of the city are abandoned and inhabited by Resistance and is infested with Xen creatures. The Combine installed Combine Smart Barriers around the city to protect it from Xen raids. An endemic species of Antilon lives in the area and is called the Siberian Antilon, it burrows in huge piles of snow."
City 10: "Located in St. Petersburg, Russia. A large city on the Russian coastline in the west. It has a high industrial count with the biggest products daily for the combine."
City 11: "Located in Wellington, New Zealand. Known for its tall apartment complexes that tower the Central District and its expression of Maori culture and language. the city is not in good condition however power and sewage systems have been kept up by the combine as well as the citadel powering the city. The city is mostly a slum. with the Beehive as the Overwatch Nexus and the New Zealand Parliament Buildings as the sky bridge.
City 12: "Located in Seoul, South Korea. The city has similar appearances to City 8 due to it's culture and design on the city, it is used as a major city and is the biggest in the Korean Peninsula, it has a large population as most of the cities in Korea were evacuated there to the city or the port city of Busan. The city does come under threat by antlions but not so much as the city walls and many OTA units are present on the outskirts and always aware.
City 13: "An overpopulated Western European metropolis located in the former city of Bratislava, Slovakia." (Location difference)
City 14: "Located in Paris, France. The cities structure on a daily basis is doing much better than cities 8 & 6 with more ales brutal combine control and harsh dictatorship, the city itself is now a safe haven for most. With thousands of loyalists and citizens the city's landmarks are almost destroyed with the Eiffel tower being used into a weapon and the citadel making it used as well. The Notre Dame is used as the garrison for the combine with thousands of OTA units and synth underground into making a factory. Citizen life is hard to achieve into this utopia. Advisors are present in parts of the city but not always. They are only present in certain areas where citizens are heavily restricted to go. Military equipment and abandoned areas are left around where mostly just jeeps and destroyed tanks. Cars are also used but only to golden tier loyalists.
City 15: "Located in Brisbane, Australia."
City 16: "Located in New Delhi, India. The City has a large booming population, with the former nation of India having a large population the combine couldn't kill out most of the citizens so the population still remains. However the city is divided into slums areas and poor buildings that are rotten down. The combine have no bother in repairing it in anyway. Most areas are mainly the same and are decay rapidly. Antlion attacks have been small since the city is so big and mainly populated that it is impossible to wipe out an entire area. With alot of CPS and OTA units being made there in India it has serviced the combine as a breeding ground to make more Synth units. The Suppression field isn't as brutal in Europe or America but more alot soft as they want to keep the population growing. Resistance is quite small as most Indian people dare oppose the CMB as the Loyal CPS are everywhere and in every place making it hard to rebel. A Citadel is present in the heart of Delhi and the Secretariat Building is used as a governance building for Council members and gold tier Loyalists. The Financial district is turned into a loyalist ground, and most Sikh temples are used as OTA garrisons and look out points for any resistance attacks or nearby invasions of antlions. The city is a hell hole that is described by the Native people there and is best to avoid it at all costs, even if you are looking for safety from the antlions.

City 20: "Located in Rome, Italy. This modest city was known to it's famous architecture and history of Italy. The colosseum is used as a large entertainment ground for people who want to do battles and for the loyalists and poor. And for overlord ranking advisors to watch too. The people are mostly well clean and healthy and the city is too big for antlions to gain a dominance off. Like Athens they both share a hold in common. Everyday citizens would become safe and would prosper around everywhere. The trains and cars are once again in use. You can basically hear a modern day pre-war society as the common aren't harsh towards it at all. Rome has it's governmental block with politically large numbers of loyalist choosing what to replace and what to improve on. Jobs are hard but are worth it. With a sustainable environment people live in harmony with the combine. The Vatican City is even used as apart in Rome and is used for governmental and Advisor Kings only. The Pantheon is currently being rebuilt due to the destruction of the SHW which caused the city to inflate and collapse. Causing a major break and death toll towards the people. Rome is the like a non stop limit spanning civilization which will forever grow.
City 21: "Located in Madrid, Spain. A poor Spanish city. This leads to many attacks from Antlions and wildlife invasions with the city being just a regular slum area.

The church of saint Demetrius is used as a loyalist site and usually a place where they can worship or hang out. The consort hall is designed to be a mass combine facility making in gunships and synth biological weapons with all kinds of threats to end the human race. However these synths do not go into the city but more ales go into a portal to another world presumably people have said to a new planet at Kepler-186f an earth-like planet that is constantly attacked by the Combine Universal Empire, However, only loyalists who have a high golden tier and who work at the facility know about it. The tower is used for a prison garrison holding in for blood, torture, death, and suffering for all kinds of people. Many CP units would be stationed there for the experience to what happens to citizens and used for a Guinea pig for their training.

Often donning full HAZMAT suits and breathing apparatus, and used to patrol the smart wall and surrounding environs of the South Downs Industroplex. PURGE is an elite variant, renowned all over the world, and deployed across the former UK to deal with incursions. PRESSURE mainly utilizes the SPAS-12 and the Xenian Cleanup solution, delivered via a hose device strapped to their HAZMAT suits. PURGE uses these Cleanup Solution dispensers also, but also utilizes the Overwatch Pulse Rifle for defensive purposes, a show of their elite status, utilizing weapons even the bulk of the OTA do not have at their disposal.
-SEEKER: Takes over a mission usually performed by the OTA. The job of recon. SEEKER is often seen in Guard Towers or elevated positions scouting the landscape with Infrared binoculars, seeking out high-priority targets and radioing them back to the Dispatch Overseer (OvS) for quicker reaction to threats. SENTINEL is an elite variation, and handles the job of handling Marksman weaponry, taking out targets from insane ranges with Pulse Snipers. SEEKER is often unarmed, with few relying on knifes and pre-war hunting equipment for their defense. SENTINEL is very well equipped, utilizing Pulse Snipers (Primarily reserved for RANGER OTA elsewhere in the world) and .357 Magnums for self-defense.
-COMLOG: Stands for Communication and Logistics. An Auxiliary division designed to increase CCA team cohesion and allow for quicker reaction times. Members of COMLOG are primarily OfC+, and are stationed in the Nexus or other HQ buildings like the Hub in the South Downs Industroplex and the Pier in the Eastbourne Export Zone.

Due to the noncompliance, most CP and EpU arrive via Razor Train or APC because the citizens refuse to join the CP and prefer death to joining. Cabins are essential weapon stockpiles for anti-citizens as the dilapidated buildings leave many places inside to hide weaponry. Due to this fact, CPs on average last around a week due to rebels or even the cold. The Combine's control in this area is only kept by Hunters and Striders deployed in all forestry areas and the massive walls in the outskirts of the city. The Hunters are sent into the woods for any ambushes of people trying to scale the walls, (Multiple incidents of Anticitizens climbing walls using the trees and mountains.) and the Striders patrolling the streets. The only exception is during blizzards when the Strider's back vents freeze up, crippling the synth.

There are 4 artillery towers in the city nearly 70% as big as the entire Nexus, with gargantuan artillery cannons loaded with HE shells designed to immediately suppress any attempt of Anti - Citizen activity / attacks. There have been none in the past year.
City 196: “Located in Liverpool, England. Is very closely related to City 78 and City 6, and is the 5th biggest city in the British Isles. Not much has changed about the city, other than the large citadel in the place of the where the Albert Dock once was, and the large amount of chemical waste in the River Mersey.
City 197: “Located in Cardiff, Wales. This is one of the worst cities in Western Europe, with high amounts of antlion attacks, headcrab zombie outbreaks, and awful standards of living, even for Combine. There are no trains that enter City 197. Despite of this, resistance activity is very high in the city, due to the lack of Combine surveillance, and the overall reputation of the city.
City 198: Located in Chengdu, China. A vital nexus for CMB operations in the former lands of the PRC. The majority of the city is now being mined for resources, with the remainder of citizens being either relocated, shoved into underground habitats, or taken to biomedical facilities awaiting transhumanization. The Dam at Dujiangyan is being extensively mined for water supplies, to be distributed either across Earth or Off-World. With extensive Razor train networks running out the city from a network of three Overwatch Nexus blocks, this also doubles as an extensive transportation hub. Resistance attacks are limited due to heavy guard, but are growing. Losing this city would cripple the Combine's occupation of Asia and maybe even the world.
City 199: Located in Ushuaia, Argentina. This place was the southernmost city on Earth before the 7 Hour War, when the Combine defeated the UN Army. Years later, they established a small garrison in the area for protecting the remaining population (the island of Tierra del Fuego was almost unaltered after the Resonance Cascade) and exploiting valuable resources like wood and water. The Magallanes Strait was an estrategic location before the Combine started using other methods of transport. The city has no resistance movement due to the isolation the population suffered from the rest of the world, therefore it prosper and citizens are allowed to use most of the Combine services freely, like the trains that connect with the near settlements. The economy of the city is based on the exploitation of trees and fishing, adding of course one of the sources of Breen's Water, the mountain ranges nearby.
City 200: Located in Borneo, Indonesia. This City is one of the most Protected City belonging to the Combine, City 200 is mostly Industrial Sectors with many Natural Resources. Ant-Lion Attacks are Rare because of the Defenses that the Combine have set up. City 200 Works along side City 180 to Gather all of the Natural Resources in Indonesia. Overwatch and Civil Protection Units are always on High alert for any Ant-Lion or Rebel Attacks.
City 201: Located in Caracas, Venezuela. This city is a mediumly protected city,mostly from Antlions and other Mutated wild life, City 201 is the Only City in Formerly Venezuela to exist. Overwatch and Civil Protection Units are always on High alert for any Rebel Attacks or Exogen breaches
