The Antlion Species are an iconic part of the Half-Life Series. From their constant attacks on The Coast, to them being allies in the Battle of Nova Prospekt, these creatures were both frustrating enemies and powerful allies. However, all they wanted was to expand their nests and protect their claimed territory.

Where did the Antlion come from? What relationship did they have with The Vortigaunt? and what role did they play in the war against The Combine Empire? In this video, I explore the lore and story behind The Antlion Species in the Half-Life Series.
