Sometimes, the mercs' Informal Eulogy when a friend or lover dies can be heartbreaking.
- If Bull dies, Grizzly will first be shocked, and then promise to take care of his wife and children for him, sounding like he's about to break up into tears.
- If Danny dies after MD had formed a friendship with him, he'll lament that Danny's field surgery skills were like "poetry in motion" and be very mopey.
- If Haywire dies, Razor thinks he's just joking around. The tearjerker comes from razor just dismissing his friend's death, saying that he'll do "anything for a laugh" not realizing until later that Haywire really is dead.
- Ivan and Igor. If one of them dies, the other's reaction is heartbreaking.
- Raven and Raider. It's pretty much the first time one is likely to see them acknowledge each other as husband and wife, and it's painful. Worse still, judging by Raven's profile for Rage!, Raider's death is canon.
