Cry of Fear Wiki

This is some of the content that was removed from Cry of Fear before being released.

Bulletproof Vest

A bulletproof vest was supposed to exist as an unlockable, but was cut for unknown reasons. When equipped, Simon would take less damage from enemies, which would have been useful for the higher difficulties. The only drawback is that Simon's stamina would be drained quicker, and the vest also would take up one inventory space.

Watro Bossfight

One can guess that this creature was meant to be fought more directly in the original version of Cry of Fear, having several unused animations of basic attacks and of it submerging itself back into its pit and then resurfacing in a fashion similar to the Tentacle from Half-Life. The presence of a fully finished theme song for the Watro that was never used also hints to the creature having originally been planned to be confronted as a boss. The watro was also supposed to be seen "assimilating" slowers and expanding across the city.

6th SMS

Used or not

the unused 6th SMS

If you use a Half-Life Model Viewer, you can check the model v_mobile and you'll notice that there's a unused phone message. It is unknown why it was removed. Although the sender's number resembles the number of the sender in the apartment's 4th floor, ruMpel confirmed it was made for Sophie's first scene. The message is also present in the text files for the subtitles.

Taurus PT92


Early in-game screenshot of the Taurus, later replaced with the Glock

The Taurus PT92 is an unused weapon that was going to be added as the first weapon retrievable, it is mainly based off of the original pistol from Afraid of Monsters, and had no reload animations as well. The contents were entirely stripped from the mod and the weapon was trashed, the only thing that remains is a backpack icon and its world model as a placeholder for another cut weapon. The map shown in the screenshot is an unfinished part of the apartment level, the second level in the game. This weapon is not to be confused with the Taurus Revolver.



Headshot screenshot with the Taurus handgun

Apparently in earlier stages of development, the player was able to headshot enemies - instantly killing them. This feature was possibly removed to give the game a bit less of a "shooter" feeling, as well as to prevent the player to kill the enemies easily.



How the Tenhead looks

The Tenhead is a monster that was modelled but never added into Cry of Fear, it was going to act like the Snark from Half-Life. It is a disembodied head with red tendrils and the face from the Human Flower.
