The three poses from left to right: On stomach, On back, On side

monster_barney_dead is a point entity available in the following GoldSrc GoldSrc games or engine branches:
Half-Life Half-LifeHalf-Life: Opposing Force Half-Life: Opposing Force and Half-Life: Blue Shift Half-Life: Blue Shift.

A Monster_barney_dead places a Security Guard character model in a map in 1 of 3 poses, On stomach, On side, or On back, making it appear as a dead security guard. When the map compiles the entity automatically falls onto the brush directly below it, meaning it isn't required to place the entity directly on the ground.
