Hmm, a few days ago I downloaded the script of the Intro Cinematic (linked from this site
) and its official, our Tin Man don?t speaks at all.
I think he didn?t let his teammates die on pruppose. You see, I think he was not so aware of the inminent danger, but its just a very cautious guy. While the other two were much more worried with the near-future he was just there trying to stay alive. Worrying for the present and thinking that for sure the WEC command wasn?t happy at all. You can see him checking the dark and aiming, basically staying alert. Then when the Vetron attacks he has a little second to react, and feels somethin (Perhaps Silencers have a built in Movement Detector, but Zurovek and Vitek weren?t paying attention) and when a walking tank with twin machineguns enters a little room to nail down every single thing that moves the Crusader does the only thing you can do: Step aside and take cover
So I don?t think he let the Vetron kill his teammates, he just didn?t had time to warn them. He barely managed to get cover!
