BiographyEdit

Battlefield 3 Icon
"We can avert war between our nations. Just two of us.
No politicians, no money changing hands. Just two soldiers speaking the truth."
This section contains spoilers for Battlefield 3.

Occupation and FamilyEdit

He was a member of the 1st Marine Tank Battalion of the United States Marine Corps, under the call sign "Anvil 3-3". It is also revealed through comms chatter, the dinosaur that reads, "To Dad", and Solomon's monologue, all of which refer to the fact that Miller is a father of a young boy. His child's birthday is evidently in the near future, as can be heard when one of his fellow crew members tells Miller that "you'll be back in time for his birthday".

Misfit Rescue MissionEdit

On October 31st, 2014, he participated in U.S. military operations against the People's Liberation and Resistance forces in the Kavir Desert in Iran.

In Fear No Evil, after having rescued Sergeant Blackburn and his squad, his tank became severely damaged, and PLR soldiers rushed towards the disabled vehicle and took him as their prisoner.

DeathEdit

Miller's Death Video

Blackburn and Gordon watch the execution video

In his final moments, he was executed by Solomon with a knife, following a short monologue by Faruk Al-Bashir, all of which was recorded and released on the Internet. The site of his execution was later revisited by Blackburn and Campo during the mission, Night Shift.

TriviaEdit

  • Along with Thomas Wyatt from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Miller is the second playable character who was scripted to die in a Battlefield game.
  • In the mission Night Shift, Campo refers to him as Corporal Miller. This was likely an error in the audio recordings left over from an earlier point in development, i.e. the Thunder Run gameplay trailer, where Miller was a Corporal.
  • He is one of two characters to not make an actual appearance in a cutscene or gameplay or say something in the game, the other one being Jennifer Hawkins.
    • However, in the ending cutscene of Fear No Evil and the beginning cutscene of Night Shift, the player is able to see Miller in a clip of the execution video being played.
  • According to loading screens, he was a veteran of Operation Desert Storm.
  • He is the only character to have a family revealed.
  • He is the only playable character to die in Battlefield 3.
  • He shares the same first-person model as Blackburn and the US Marines in multiplayer except that his gloves are black rather than tan.
  • Even though he is the commander of the tank, he seems to take advice from his loader (normally the lowest rank in the tank), Ingham.
  • The toy dinosaur he carried with him can be found on the multiplayer map Epicenter.
  • A dinosaur toy similar to Miller's gift can be seen hanging from the rear view mirror of the van in the Shanghai mission of Battlefield 4.
