Zooming on first level

Is there a way to zoom in on the first level of half-life 2? I’ve tried suit zoom, which I usually use with static camera to take screenshots, and +zoom; and right clicking with the normal camera doesn’t work either!

so
bind mouse3 “+zoom” doesnt work?

Nope! Help!

You can’t “zoom” until you get the hazard suit

That’s not true because once you’re past the second loading screen you can zoom

I dont think you’re able to zoom in until you get the hazard suit.

You can after the first loading screen after meeting Barney.
