The Carmine Easter Egg?

I realized the Carmine brothers In Gears Of War could be based on the movie Saving Private Ryan. One of them dies with a headshot like the soldier on the beach who was a “Lucky son of a b!tch” when his helmet saved his life before he was shot again at the same spot without his helmet. The last moment with their squad leader’s . The second Carmine dies with a critical stomach injury as his last words were about a relative, like the medic who got a stomach full of led by a MG despite it wasn’t eaten by a creature. Most importantly Clayton being the only guy out of the four brothers who survived and pulled a last stand in the boss battle like Private Ryan did at the Normandy bridge. Something I noticed anyways lol.


A lot of thought put into this huh? Although it’s funny how it is similar somewhat

Carmine (a shade of red) is based on the Redshirts from Star Trek.


Did you know… there’s two words in Carmine?
Car-mine. :face_with_monocle:
