The Skullbreaker combine was a replacement model and, theorized by some, an early version of what later became the shotgunner skin, for the Combine Soldier that was to appear in Half-Life 2: Episode 1 when it was still known as Half-Life 2: Aftermath. Although he never saw the light of day, the community has seen a number of screenshots of these illusive yet terrifying soldiers, but to this day, he official textures have yet to see the light of day. HOWEVER, today I give you all the NEXT BEST THING: A highly accurate recreation that puts others to shame!
Let me tell you what this soldier has that others lack:
- Genuine Soldier blood splatter on the left leg and mud on both feet
- high detail decals on the soldier's padding with realistic paint smudging
- texture recolors done in LAB color mode instead of RGB so as not to flood the texture with ugly, messy compression artifacts

Wooow! Is it a super mega version of "shotgunner"?!?!?! Firstly, why "shotgunner", if we can see this soldier with SMG1? Secondly, why adding some shit to soldier's suit (shit, like in the official screenshots!) makes your "super duper" recreation better? Wait... You didn't add elite symbol to on left part of helmet? Shame on you. The other person just didn't add shit (dirt, I don't give a fuck) and blood, you could say he made a version more like the one in the background of Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. The version does not get worse from this. Calling the other version "shame" due to the lack of shit and blood is a bit weird.
Hey man! I like this skin you made it looks nice, but be warned cause people have made similar submissions like this one, so I'm sorry if it gets taken down or withheld, just be wary man cause this potentially could get taken down, be safe and have a good winter.
