How to deal with large groups of barnacles

When you find large groups of barnacles they can be an absolute pain! You can't get past them easily, heres one way to do it:
1.Get and explosive (flammable) barrel and roll it into a barnacle tongue.
2.Shoot the barrel with a gun (preferably pistol,NOT CROWBAR) until it is on fire then wait for the blast.
3. Laugh about the hapless barnacle that ate an explosive barrel and killed everything around it.


The cheats are the same as the last HL game.
1. Pull the console down with "~" and type sv_cheats (TAB) 1.Then enter.
2. Type Bind c "impulse 101".Then ruturn to the game then keep pressing "C" to get ammo and HEALTH.
I don't think There will be a cheat for armor. And if you use the cheat at the start of the game, later you HAVE to get the EVA suit. At That point, pull out the console and RESTART and it will put you outside the lab then go get the EVA suit then press "C" again to get Ammo and Health. It is fun, use the SMG. Use the right click to launch a grenade. It is fun watching people flying away.
