TriviaEdit

  • Vasquez's Pistol should have been destroyed when Vasquez and Lieutenant Gorman committed suicide with a grenade in the Hadley's Hope air ducts, yet it returns in Aliens: Colonial Marines. What's more, the weapon somehow found its way out of the ducts and back to a room on the lower level of the colony's main operations building.
  • Vasquez's pistol in the game is based on the Colt M1911 (likely due to the weapon in-game being a modified M4A3 Service Pistol model), even though her sidearm in the film was actually a Smith & Wesson Model 39.
    • It is somewhat ironic that Vasquez's Model 39 was replaced by a pistol based on the M1911, as in real life the Model 39 was designed to replace the M1911 in US military service (although it failed to do so).
  • When viewing the weapon in the game's Service Record Special Projects menu, it displays Vasquez's famous "You always were an asshole, Gorman." quote.
