Was inspired by the Beta Elite and by this mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=616817674 so I wanted to do an Elite that's based on the retail soldier and I like how it turned out. Sometimes white doesn't make sense (like yeah it's symbolic for power but man it gets dirty quick, have you seen how their uniforms are in EP2?) so I also desired a look that felt fitting and "lore friendly."

Thanks to Lemon and KeyZ on Steam for creating the head textures and a special thanks to Clatronix for taking the time and patience to teach me how to properly do illumination masks on a skin and a thanks to Pelpix123 for leaking the "month before release" soldier sheet that was also used to create this reskin.

    I really like the idea behind this, so I'll definitely be downloading it.

    Do you have any images of how the Elite uniforms changed between Half-Life 2 and Episode 2?

    Edit: More importantly, is this compatible with Episodes 1 and 2?
    Thanks and it should work for them but if you're asking if I made EP 1 and 2 skins, then no I didn't do that. Though I could look into that, thanks for the suggestion.

    I was just asking if you had any comparisons between Half-Life 2 and Episode 2's Overwatch Elites. Thanks for letting me know, though.
    No I haven't compared my skin to the Ep1 and Ep2 retail variants, I started modding like a month ago so I'm still learning stuff. If I can find the overlays/layers used for the retails to give them the roughed up/dirtier look then that would make that easy. If that doesn't exist, no big problem. I can do it the longer way but it would be longer till that's out. I always thought the Ep1 variants were the same but they might be a little dirter? The difference is really noticeable in Ep2 like the boots are so dusty and covered in mud. Sure no problem and no idk when I would do the skins for them but I would just update this page instead of creating new ones.
    Dang typos.

    Its funny, this actually does look more intimidating than a white uniform with a red eye.
    Huh now that you mention that, yeah I can see that (not trying to brag or anything, wearing almost all white in a non-arctic area doesn't make a whole lot of sense)
    Dang typos.
