Shout Out /
Vietcong, Fist Alpha, and Red Dawn
- Double shout-outs in the US campaign's intro: The opening shot is taken straight from Platoon, while the ceiling fan is one to Apocalypse Now.
- After killing a VC propagandist, Boone can play around with his radio to taunt the sniper. Sometimes, he'll make a Star Trek reference.
Boone: Starship Enterprise, this is your Captain speaking. We have boldly gone where no man has gone before, but there is still one Klingon sniper in the sector.
Boone: Starship Enterprise, this is your Captain speaking. All Klingons are eliminated. The Starfleet should assemble in front of the building at this time.
- Some of the multiplayer voices were named Rodriguez, Tex, Barnes, Gardner, and Rafterman.
- It's safe to say that the Hue City setting in the US campaign is one big Shout-Out to Full Metal Jacket.
