Half-Life Sniper Mode with any weapon
If you have a crossbow, you can get sniper mode on any weapon, and here'show: Simply quick-save your game, go to the crossbow and zoom in, and thenquick-load. When the game pops up again, you will be zoomed in on theweapon you had when you saved, and can cycle through the others as normal.To zoom out, just go back to the crossbow and press 2nd attack.
OR
Enable the console bytyping "-dev" or "-console" (without qoutes) as mentioned in one of theabove codes.
Start up the game, and enter a new game, or load a saved one. Now hit the ~key to bring up the console. Type the following, where * is the key of yourchoice. (Keep in mind, you must bind all three commands to different keys.
bind * "fov 20"
bind * "fov 50"

The first will bring you in to a very close zoom. Second is mid-range, andthird is the command to bring you back to the normal view. It works withany weapon, though it will not change the mode of fire or increase/decreaseaccuracy.

Half-Life Quick Weapon Reload
First of all, this only works for weapons with slow reload times, like the magnum and the tranquilizer crossbow. Upon running out of ammo in your clip, you will begin to reolad your weapon.

Half-Life Cheat: Better Third Person
Here’s how to get a real active following chase-cam style third person view and not the annoying side view. NOTE: All commands are to be typed WITHOUT the quotes.

Get into the console. Make sure cheats are on (command: "sv_cheats 1"). Next, put it in third person (command: "thirdperson") Now change the camera angle to behind the player instead of to his right side. To do this, you have to change the camera's yaw angle number. (command: "cam_idealyaw 1") Now you have an active chasecam third person.

There are more camera commands that you can play around with for whatever reason. -"chase_active 1" changes the view to a more passive style ("chase_active 0" to turn off) -"cam_idealpitch 90" changes standard camera pitch angle. The command "cam_idealdist 64" changes the standard camera distance. To return to your normal first person shooter, simply use the command "firstperson”.
