* HateSink: [[spoiler:Kirkland. At first he's just as whiny Jerkass: But then he hides like a coward during the first battle and doesn't fire a single shot. Then he betrays the group and possibly the U.S to the terrorist. Then he shoots Sean in the climatic battle and then outright executes Parker. Needless to say, it's very satisfying to see him get his comeuppance]]
