** There's no rule that says you can only follow a higher authority while the higher authority in question is still alive. The Radioman's being loyal to the bitter end, loyal to Konrad's last orders and his memory. That he would continue to follow Konrad after his death adds a lot of dramatic weight to the relationship they had with each other, and says a lot about how close-knit everyone in the 33rd is.

** Presumably, just for a night. As for the beard? He might've had it for some time, but was so out of it that he probably only noticed it now. These answers are all assumptions due to the [[MindScrew nature of the game.]]

* Minor point, but how long is the period of time between Walker calling in help and the rescue team finding him? By the time they get to him, Walker has a beard. Seems like an awful long time went by before they found him.

*** It just seems really two-faced to profit off exactly the type of media you claim to be "satirizing", its basically like every Quentin Tarantino movie ever, or that crappy FunnyGames horror movie.

** No one ever said that it was only the battalion that took casualties from the sandstorms. Also, the 33rd was in control of the water distribution throughout Dubai, which is oretty much enough incentive for the survivors to just follow them, instead of keeling over.

* How did the 33rd maintain order in Dubai when they were only at battalion strength (and took casualties from the sandstorm) and had to watch over hundreds of thousands of people?

** Water access could have been impacted by the storm. Absolutely enormous volumes of sand were shifted (to the point where entire skyscrapers are buried) and boats are seen strewn across the landscape. The USN likely wouldn't have had access to the ports or it would have been deemed too dangers. As for Walker and his team, It may have simply been easier to insert a small reconnaissance team by land. If the port was destroyed then trying to find a safe drop off zone could have been considered unfeasible.
