Sven Co-opedia Wiki

With my brains and your brawn, we'll make an excellent team!
- The Scientist

The "brains" of the Black Mesa Research team, Scientists are neutral characters seen in Sven Co-op that can heal and revive players, and will constantly panic if gunfire erupts.


Scientists will allow players access to secured rooms or areas within the Black Mesa facility that may have valuables such as health, armor and ammunition. They also have basic medical skills: they can refill a players health if they are on low health, and resuscitate dead players and ally NPCs if they find any in their vicinity.

Unlike Allied Medics, and not like any military or security personnel, they are unarmed, and have the lowest health level. Should a fight break out, scientists will panic and flee to safety to avoid being caught in the crossfire.
