Two citizens dealing with contraband.

Contraband refers to the items that the Combine believes conflict with its goals and are thus prohibited.

These restricted items can include weapons, tools, medical equipment, restraints, non-approved consumables, and certain books.

Whilst contraband items and regulations vary from server to server, the aforementioned items are usually restricted from the general citizenry, and sometimes available to loyal collaborators as rewards for co-operation.
