** Depending on how one regards the continuity, possibly because the energy weapons in Prometheus were basically useless.

** The pulse rifles can hold 99 rounds, but after the Dropship crash and APC destruction, they only have about fifty rounds each for four of them. 99 rounds seems like a lot, but as Ripley proves in her assault on the hive, it's not quite enough. Hicks also reminds the surviving Marines to use "short, controlled bursts" when the aliens finally come for them, to make their remaining ammo last as long as possible.

* DyingDeclarationOfHate: "You always were an asshole, Gorman", although weirdly enough it's mixed with just a touch of grudging respect.

* DyingDeclarationOfHate: "You always were an asshole, Gorman", although weirdly enough it's mixed with just a touch of grudging respect. This is most likely because Gorman came back to try and rescue Vasquez when she was wounded, and is about to lose his life for doing so.

** In the beginning, Ripley is seen smoking. Her cigarrette lighter is later used to set off the sprinklers in the Medbay.

* CurbstompBattle: Reconstructed with the mech-armoured Ripley vs the Alien Queen. Though Ripley is visibly terrified and struggling to control the Power Loader, the Queen can do nothing to penetrate the armour or get to Ripley, at least until it decides it TakingYouWithMe.

Added DiffLines:
** The Queen tries doing this to Ripley after she uses the Power Loader to have it ThrownOutTheAirlock, being the defining point their face-off stops being a CurbstompBattle.

* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Gorman]] gets a small measure of redemption in keeping [[spoiler:Vasquez]] and himself from being taken alive. * RedHerringMole: Ripley meets the android Bishop, of whom she's intensely distrustful due to her experience with Ash in the first film, and is later seen examining some dead facehuggers. It looks as though Bishop will betray our heroes in the interests of acquiring a xenomorph for the company, just like Ash, but it turns out [[spoiler:Burke is the one who really wants to bring in a xenomorph. Bishop was only following his initial orders.]]

* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Early in the film, Lt. Goreman displays incompetent and indecisive leadership while in command of his marines, to the point where a civilian (Ripley) essentially takes over command for short time. He then spends most of the rest of the movie incapacitated with a head injury. However, near the end of the film he fights hard against the Xenomorphs and dies a hero's death while trying to save Vasquez after she is wounded in the air ducts.

** IIRC this was the first movie to not use personal-scale energy weapons in a future setting.
