Perfect symbols

Throughout Perfect dark levels there can be viewed many symbols / signs (The Chicago level being the most abundant). Some are obvious as to what they are / mean, some on the other hand have had to have been translated.

KMR-130873 (On the side of the submarine at the end of Pelagic 2)
R- 3173-B (On the wheel of Air force one)
XD-310372 (The registration no. of Elvis’s aircraft seen in briefing to Maian sos)


Letters: Quite simply, they are the initials of three members of Rare:

RB – Ross Bury (*Bionic backgrounds)
KMR – Keith M Rabbette (*Dynamic backgrounds)
XD – Chris Darling (Christmas = Xmas, Chris = x (X is short for Chris (*Weapons specialist)

*See credits after Skedar ruins.

Ross Bury also crops up in other places throughout the game:

Rb – dataDyne Research: Investigation – On pipe in floor in room with scientist who sets off alarm (See above).
RB – Chicago: Stealth – Graffiti on wall (See above)
ROSSORAMA – Air force one – Tv screen on plane “Ross ‘o’ Rama“

He, of course did some of the backgrounds in Perfect dark, and so it’s no surprise to see his stamp on things.

Figures: As pointed out to me my “Double0Bond”, the figures which come after the letters, are the birthdays of the said member:

R- 3173-B:……….3, 1, 73 (Jan 3rd 1973)
KMR-130873:….13, 8, 73 (Aug 13th 1973)
XD-310372:…….31, 3, 72 (Mar 31st 1972)
