The Flare Gun is a weapon used by Metrocops, Combine Soldiers and Nova Prospekt Prison Guards in Half-Life 2. Apart from the flare itself, it has no model.
The Flare Gun is first seen in action soon after Freeman leaves Kleiner's Lab, when Metrocops fire flares in the Canals to alert reinforcements. Combine Soldiers also shoot flares along the Coast to summon Gunships and to illuminate unlit spaces, such as cell block D8 in Nova Prospekt after turning off the lights in an effort to ambush Freeman. Later, a Metrocop fires one when Freeman assaults a power generator during the City 17 uprising.
Behind the scenes
Every time a flare is shot, the shooter is invariably far away or out of the player's sight to prevent them from seeing the lack of a flare gun. When looking closely, it appears that no flare gun model is used, nor is in the game files (the Metrocops in the Canals, for instance, merely use their standard pistols). An unused HUD icon for the flare gun can be found in the Half-Life 2 files.
The weapon was originally to be used by the player to ignite targets. It can be found and used only on the test maps in the Half-Life 2 leak. When shot, the flare sticks to the player when approached and can damage their health. It was likely to be found only in the Arctic levels, at least on the Borealis and in Kraken Base, always stored in "pyrotechnic lockers". There is an unused model version of the locker intended to be used by the player in the files. Disposable emergency flares were also originally to appear in Half-Life, and were finally introduced in Episode One.

The San Mateo County District Attorney is looking to file 14 felony gun charges against a man who shot off a flare at in the morning from his home in Hillsborough.
A man called Hillsborough police at a.m. on Feb. 20 to ask if he could fire a flare gun at a birthday party, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. The dispatcher told the man, later identified as Thom Ruben, 66, not to fire the flare, but he did so anyway, said Wagstaffe.
Police arrived at Rubins home in the block of Churchill Drive and found he was intoxicated. Officers said he showed them his gun, an ARstyle rifle with a grenade and flare launcher on it, according to Wagstaffe.
Since police initially thought the flare being shot was just a municipal code violation, they gave him a ticket and left.
But a few days later, police found photos on social media of Ruben with various guns, some illegally configured, and discovered that Ruben has been convicted of crimes in Switzerland, which makes it illegal for him to have guns in the state, according to Wagstaffe.
On Feb. 24, police got a search warrant and found multiple guns, illegal fireworks, potassium nitrate, multiple boxes and rounds of ammo and U.S. government-issued body armor, according to Wagstaffe.
Because of the social media posts, Ruben will be charged during his Thursday court appearance with four counts of illegal discharge of a firearm. He also faces 10 felonies related to the various guns, ammo and explosives he had.
Wagstaffe said he is not sure of the exact nature of Rubens convictions in Switzerland, but said there are a number that would count as felonies in California.
Wagstaffes office has prosecuted Ruben before for misdemeanors, the DA said.
Ruben is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday and is out of jail.
How to Use a Flare Gun
Using a flare gun is quite similar to firing traditional firearms. Pulling the trigger causes the hammer to hit a detonating cap. The detonating cap both fires the flare and causes it to ignite. The gun should be pointed vertically, in the air.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, you should fire two flares in succession, which allows authorities to both see your signal and try to determine where it came from [source: Orion Safety Products]. If possible, it's best to wait until you see a rescue craft, such as a circling airplane, or know that one is in the area before firing your first flare.
You should conserve your signals and use them judiciously. If you're going out on the ocean, always make sure you have a solid cache of flares that are at most a few years old. If you need help, you may have to use multiple flares, or possibly flares of varying types, to signal and draw rescue craft to your location.
Flare guns can also be used for other purposes besides signaling. Some outdoors types carry flare guns to scare away bears and other predators [source: Tierney]. Be careful though: Firing directly at an animal may harm it -- besides possibly being illegal -- and the heat of the flare can easily lead to a fire that may quickly become out of control.
Flare guns have also been used to deal with pirates off of the Somali coast, an area that has seen an epidemic of piracy in recent years. Ships, both military and civilian cargo boats, often use flares to warn off pirates. In one incident, a Danish cargo ship fired a flare that then landed on a pirate boat, sinking it. The pirates were later taken into custody by the Danish navy.
In an ironic twist, police officers found two men illegally firing automatic weapons in the woods in Westchester County, New York, by following a flare they fired into the air. Although the men later fired their guns at the police, the officers were uninjured, made the arrests and charged the men with a litany of crimes, including attempted murder [source: New York Times].
