Red Faction Wiki

Captain Halvar Gunnarsen (unknown - 2125) is one of the key enforcers of EDF's order on Mars.


Known as the “Butcher of Chryse” by many in the Red Faction, Gunnarsen is the EDF’s pit bull. He is perhaps best known for ordering a battalion of troops to subdue a miner’s revolt that left over 300 civilians dead. Assigned control of the Dust sector of Mars, Gunnarsen’s main task is to keep the ore processing units operating – by force.[1]

Gunnarsen is assigned the Dust Sector, centrally in charge of keeping ore production running smoothly and the miners in check by any means. He is killed whilst making a run for it by Alec Mason after attempting to draw miners into a trap.
