Brickbat

The Brickbat is an early implementation of the concept of using physics props as weapons against enemies. The player would be able to pick up a number of small objects off the ground, including glass bottles, rocks, and even Cremator heads, and throw them by hand at enemies. Most likey, once Valve developed the physics gameplay (including the inclusion of the Gravity Gun and the ability for the player to pick up objects with the "use" key), the Brickbat became entirely useless and was dropped. An alternate version of the Brickbat shows the player holding a headcrab in his hand. It is anyone's guess as to whether the throwable headcrab was to be a gameplay element, a placeholder, or merely an in-joke at Valve.
