In the development of Half Life 2 as a goal and tradition, the team created a piñata scanner which would be hit when the game was finished. Unlike HL1's headcrab piñata, this time the closest thing to a Stun Baton was used, with Gabe Newell being the first to hit the piñata.

For HL1, the wife of one of the developers made a headcrab piñata, which was hit when the game was ready.

I'm currently working on a mod that focuses on a scanner companion. And I hate this entity so much that this made my day! It deserves to be a pinata, and it deserves to be beaten with hard objects until breaking point.

The Scanner will be sent to Tartarus, to endure the torment that the Tantalus had to endure
