A mentally shattered veteran of the invasion of Stroggos, Private Nathan Grunt is still fighting a war that ended years ago.
Grunt suffered a lot in the Strogg war. He has a lot of righteous anger built up inside of him. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, his ability to tell friend from foe suffered a lot too. From his perspective, they are all foes now and they all gotta die.
"Anyone standing in my way is gonna be dogmeat."
"A Marine laughs at danger. And I see nothing here to laugh about."
"I can see that the words 'no contest' mean something here."
"I am jacked in and good to go."
"You [fighter]s are stinkin' the place up."
"I see [random enemy] is stinkin' up the place again."
"[Map name] is my kind of place!"
"How's it hangin'?"
"Nice place you got here. Could use a few gibs though."
"I am so outta here."
"Gotta run. Happy fraggin'."
"It's time for me to bug on out of here."
"OK you rubber monkeys, make me look good."
"OK, time for you [fighter]s to make me look good."
"I'm psyched up. Let's get it on."
"At least I'm not in the basement on this one."
"Next time, let's all hammer on [winner]."
"Winning ain't everything ... but losing sure stinks, right, [loser]?"
"Wasn't my turn to win today ... so I took someone else's."
"My momma didn't raise me to be a loser."
"Losing make me mad. Real mad. Sort of homicidal."
"Losing sucks big time."
"Next time, let's all hammer on [winner]."
"Gahhhh. It figures that [enemy] would be the kind of jerk who'd do that."
"Yeah, shoot me while I'm an easy target why don't ya, [enemy]."
"I was on the phone!"
"[Enemy] buddy, you are going to regret not fragging me in one shot."
"I've had worse cuts shaving, [enemy]."
"Nice poke there, [enemy] Too bad you didn't finish the job."
"Looks like you just failed target practice today, [enemy]."
"Yeah!! I could feel that one hit all the way over here."
"You survived that, [enemy]? I must be gettin' old."
"I think I found my range with that hit."
"I normally like the hot stuff."
"Flip me over when I'm about medium rare."
"Bah! I drink coffee stronger than that."
"Reminds me of the [liquid] we used to get at the mess hall."
"Guess I was having too good a time down there."
"There's Pirate Treasure down here!"
"I ought to get hazard pay for this."
"I'm better than that. Honest."
"I swear somebody rearranged the arena."
"Heh. Had me a terminal case of hangnail there."
"That toe fungus just sneaked up and grabbed me."
"You gotta have a lotta guts to come here and do that, [enemy]."
"I'm impressed. Now it's my turn."
"[Enemy] You are in for a beating now."
"Thanks for sharing that with me, [enemy]."
"OK, that was a good shot."
"That just ruins my day. Now I gotta ruin yours, [enemy]."
"[Enemy], I'm tempted to grab that thing and shove it ..."
"Use that thing once more and you're gonna eat it [enemy]."
[ponder] I remember that weapon being a lot scarier."
"I gave you an easy shot there [enemy]."
"OK, [enemy], now try that on a moving target."
"I'm gonna wrap that stinkin' [weapon] around your neck [enemy]!"
"Nobody does that to Grunt and just walks away from it."
"I don't take that kind of crap from [fighter]s like you, [enemy]!"
"Lousy stinking .... Camper!"
"Not half bad there [enemy]."
"This could be more difficult than I thought."
"You been taking lessons, [enemy]?"
"Looks like you can give some pointers about the [weapon], [enemy]."
"'Old Betsy' still works like a charm."
"I just love modern technology."
"[Enemy], consider yourself terminated with extreme prejudice."
"Feel the POWER!"
"Ow. My hand hurts now."
"Beats a hand blaster any day."
"Blood and gore all over the floor and me without a spoon."
"Dang it, [enemy]. I don't need your help to win here."
"That can't be good for your complexion [enemy]."
"Dr. Death would be so proud of you [enemy]."
"That's another score for the good guys."
"Of course I'm picking on you, [enemy]. You're an easy target."
"I'm trying to cure you of the uglies, but it ain't working."
"You're a hard foe to pin down, [enemy]."
"Dang, you're good, [enemy]! That frag should count double."
"For a moment there, I thought you were a Marine, [enemy]."
"If only the good die young, I think you just might live forever [enemy]."
"[Enemy], I don't think you can handle me."
"And here I thought this match was going to be challenging."
"I'm too hot for my own good."
"I've got a grenade with the protofiend's name on it."
"I've got a grenade with [enemy]'s name on it."
"I'm ready to dance when you are [enemy]."
