This is Sniper’s right thumb I’ve seen in various sfm photos. Did he hurt his thumb or something? His thumbnail is all black but the rest of his fingers/nails are fine looking.

Please explain?

His sniper rifle has a manually operated bolt action on the right-hand side. The bruise (a subungual haematoma) is caused by trying to reload too fast (too many people wanting him dead on the battlefield?) and getting his thumb caught in the sliding mechanism.

Watch how his right hand moves to pull back the handle, unload the spent cartridge case, and slide the fresh round into the breech:

The bolt-action mechanism looks something like this (source: wikipedia) - it is allegedly quite painful to get your fingers pinched in it:

That’s Valve for you - completely ridiculous canon, perfectly detailed character designs.

The Microphones // The Moon

We’re just floating in space over molten rock 
And we felt safe and we discovered that our skin is soft
There’s nothing left except certain death 
And that was comforting at night out under the moon
