Tear Jerker / Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Go To

  • Infinite Warfare has a few tearjerker moments within it - especially the ending, in which the majority of your squad end up dying in the final battle by sacrificing themselves for the salvation of Earth. This includes you, marking the first time in a Call of Duty game that the player character does not survive to the end credits.
    • During the ending credits, you get to hear the final goodbye messages recorded by those who died along the journey for their friends and family. They knew there was a good chance they would not be coming home, and recorded farewell messages for their loved ones before departing.
      • For bonus Player Punch points, you actually get an achievement for forcing yourself to sit through the whole thing.
    • This is also the first time in the franchise that all of the playable characters die in the same game.

    • The number of Retribution crew members? 767. The number of Retribution crew members who survive the game? Four.
    • "Is that rain, sir?"
  • Before Operation Blood Storm Nick is A Father to His Men. He's their friend, he loves them, he can't bear it when they die. In Operation Blood Storm he realizes he can't save his men, and he doesn't even show any emotion when sending his comrades, (including Nora, his partner for over 10 years) into a literal suicide mission. He doesn't freak out, or act surprised when he's forced to kill Ethan himself. Some players may see it as an epic Heroic BSoD.
