* In the opening introduction's bus ride, which doubles as both horror and {{TearJerker}} worthy, Jacobs watches a mother and father put up against a wall with two Korean [=MPs=] preparing to shoot them ... with their child being forced to watch. The mother begs her child not to look right before they are shot in the head. The [=MPs=] then walk off, leaving the child to scream and cry over his parents' corpses. All the more reason for you to start blowing their heads off when you get the chance.
* The Heroic Sacrifice of Goliath. The single most useful member of the resistance. [[spoiler: Strapped with tons of C4, [[ManlyTears it goes out with a hell of a bang.]]]]
* The White Phosphorus misfire that kills many of your own guys. It's more NightmareFuel though.
* [[BlackDudeDiesFirst Boone's]] death. Made all the more distressing when you [[FridgeHorror realize]] that, in the position he was in, the Koreans [[NightmareFuel forced him to watch]] as the Koreans executed everyone in Oasis before finally killing him.
