** The bodies of the [[spoiler:mother and child]] in particular is both a TearJerker and NightmareFuel due to how detailed it is. The fact that in one way or another they keep popping up later in the game [[YouBastard doesn't help]].

** The encounter gets worse once you consider how it's presented; You've finally made it to the gatehouse. Your mission is almost over. But a door's there; you can't open it, so you expect the worst, such as another heavy. [[spoiler:[[GoneHorriblyRight You're right.]] Immediately as you approach the door and it shatters, the dust settles to reveal... Lugo. [[OhCrap And he's carrying an AA-12.]] His immediate first action? [[KickTheDog Fire at Adams]], who was once the only real ally he had left in Dubai after Walker started going mad. Then he turns his attention to you, and ''he starts HOWLING off at you in [[VoiceOfTheLegion the worst possible voice]]'', practically spitting out the most damning words he has for you. His AA-12's firing directly at you as he calls you out and it will tear you to shreds if he hits. [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption Walker, the man Lugo once considered not only his leader, but his friend, is practically '''forced''' to take him out if he wants to get past him.]]]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Heavy Lugo''': ''This is all your fault! '''[[HellIsThatNoise YOURS!!!]]''''']]

** For bonus horror and guilt-tripping, watch Lugo's hand as he says "This is your fault, God dammit!" [[https://youtu.be/-b7TaLjdXMc?t=5m28s while Walker stares at the body of that mother and child.]] He's not pointing at Walker. ''[[spoiler:[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou He's pointing at you.]]]]''

* Unrelated to any WarIsHell psychology, but instead to an easily overlooked detail: the oryxes. When they show up, it feels so unreal, it's almost creepy. So you wander through the human tragedy that is the devastated Dubai, when suddenly, you spot these weird long-horned antelopes and you're not at all sure whether they're really there or Walker's seeing things.

** A herd can be seen in chapter 1, and sure, they could just be taken as part of the scenery and a sign of how desolate the ruins are that animals are traipsing the grounds, but if you know Walker's mind already, they're cast in severe doubt.
** It gets worse: you spot another oryx early in chapter 11, eating contently... in the middle of a heavily urbanized part of Dubai, [[spoiler:after the water trucks explode]]. You can only see his upper half because of a dune, and when you approach, you can see what it was feeding on: a soldier's corpse. Except oryxes are exclusively herbivorous with no recorded tendencies towards opportunistic carnivorism like deer in short, ''oryxes don't eat meat''.
