Lt. Col. Robert Burns is a commanding officer who was selected from the US Marine Corps and leads Bravo Company, the task force assigned to reclaim the American space colony from Russian forces. A decorated war hero, Burns has been awarded the Silver Star and the Navy Cross for his service in three different conflicts across the globe. At age 48, he still fights with conviction and has replaced more than half of his body with bionics so he may continue to fight.
Throughout the game, Burns acts as an ally and helps Sam out by firing on his enemies with a gigantic minigun that he wields. However, he distrusts DARPA and thinks that they have objectives that come into conflict with his own.
Robert Burns is voiced by prolific voice actor Steven Blum
