Hanging Out With Titanfall's Grunts Can Be Pretty Entertaining

We've talked about how Titanfall's NPCs make sure there's always something happening and there's always someone to shoot. But the "grunts" also have their own dialogue, and it's something more reminiscent of Halo than Call of Duty.

You might notice when you're near a group of grunts that they call out things like "Enemy pilot spotted!" or "door clear!". It isn't just limited to random battle chatter though. Sometimes when you approach a group of grunts, you'll hear them notice "friendly pilot coming through". There are a bunch of these lines that are written to drive home the idea that pilots are a level beyond the average soldier, almost like Master Chief.

The grunts don't just make you feel awesome, they also have conversations of their own, about hitting the gym, or why they signed up for the militia. Take a look at the video to hear all the weird stuff they come up with.

Did you hear any lines that weren't in the video? Leave them in the comments!


    Yeah I got a real Halo feel, which is pretty cool. This game will be my console game of choice until Halo 5 drops. BF4 being my obvious PC game of choice.

    Can't see the video at work, so I don't know if this is included. They also say little expository things that give you background into the world. I remember one of them talking about how pilots are all juiced up on performance and reflex boosting drugs.
    After hearing the devs talk about how they want to tell storyline in the multiplayer games, I'm really excited to see how they do it. The grunt talk, the so far unseen giant monsters that were in the concept art, and the promise that the retail release is going to drop with 15 maps is making me really want to see how they do all this. Even the burn cards have odd little hints that the pilots are only mostly human. The burn card for enhanced speed and jumping has a quote from a doctor about removing and installing cybernetic legs.

    Please don't fuck this up, EA. Don't make it a jigsaw game with 300 overpriced DLCs that fracture the community. I haven't wanted to play a competitive FPS like this since Battlefield 2. This game will kick Planetside 2 off my list of regular plays.
