Gunpoint's world is filled with smartasses, and they are
- Right at the start of the game Conway gets Destination Defenestration and his phone rings, he answers it still laying on the ground.
Selene: Did you just get thrown out of your own room?
Conway: I'd... rather not talk about it.
- And when you finish the tutorial mission you get a scene "35 seconds earliernote " which explains how that happened to Conway: he threw himself from his own apartment trying the Bullfrog trousers.
- Conway's very first conversation with Rooke.
Rooke: Conway, this is Melanie Rooke. Selena Delgado worked for me. Do you have time to talk?
Conway: How do you know my name?
Rooke: It's on your profile, it's your phone's public ID, and you once gave it to me on a business card while saying "My name is Conway."
Conway: I see I've underestimated you.
- Conway's first contract with Intex.
Gessler: Who the fuck are you?
Conway: Conway, hat fancier.
Gessler: The fuck does that mean?
Gessler: Who the fuck are you?
Conway: Who the fuck are you?
- On being contracted to break into the police station by the chief of police.
Conway: Can't you, police chief of the actual police, get this police thing from the police?
Mayfield: Ask my predecessor. You can't, he was shot six times in the chest shortly after referring one of his officers to internal affairs for document forgery.
Conway: Who's to say that was even related?
Mayfield: The police chief of the actual police.
- The end of the Mayfield jobs.
Conway: (Lie) Nope, there was nothing on the terminal.
- Conway's first conversation with Katie Collins.
Conway: Get [Jackson] in trouble? I'd want to get him in acid.
Collins: haha! i just wanna know why he would do this, he always seemed so nice. maybe theres a reason. hell probably be in his office on the top floor. if you can get close enough to hear what hes saying, maybe you could listen in for a clue or something
Conway: And then throw him in some acid?
- Obtaining an achievement by jump-tackling a guard and proceeding to punch him, with extreme prejudice, nets you these comments.
It, er, only takes one punch to knock them out.
But what you're doing is fine too. That's probably ok.
Ok, you can stop now.
There's no achievement for this.
Wait, are you doing this to see if there are any more messages?
Because that is among the worst reasons to punch someone in the face x times.note
Achievement Unlocked: Alright, Have one! Just Stop!
- In the level editor, mousing over the level name box provides you with this comment.
- Entering it anyway leads to the name turning red and being unable to save the level while you're chastised thusly;
I said don't call it that.
- There's a "mission" titled "Gessler: Go fuck yourself." It's Gessler throwing a shit fit on Conway like a foul-mouthed kid for double-crossing him in favor of Rooke. It's as hilarious as one would expect.
- The Patch Notes for the above mission:
- In a similar vein to the No-Holds-Barred Beatdown achievement mentioned above, there's a certain bit of the trailer that pokes fun at this, too. At one point, Conway smashes through a glass ceiling and onto a guard, who he proceeds to pummel. It cuts away to other gameplay footage, and back to the punching, and away and back. Eventually, Melanie cuts in.
Melanie: I'd appreciate it if you keep could keep violence to a minimum.
