The Marines do not use combine code. However, it uses the some of the same behavior code. Remember folks behavior code is separate code that can be used by more than one NPC.

Honestly the combine code is a mess. It is over 4000 lines of spaghetti code where as our grunts contain a little over 500 lines.
The grunt code rely on behaviors more than the combine, so not only can other NPCs can share the behaviors, but we have cleaner code too.

2) Call us lazy, but we have other stuff to get done and the M4 is not on that list. Why? Well, because we can.
3) HECU can throw grenades, but not too far nor too close.
