"Damn it!" is an infamous catchphrase often used by Gabe Logan during the Syphon Filter series.


Syphon Filter trilogy

  • Gabe can usually be heard cursing this phrase if he fails an objective, which leads to mission failure.
  • The phrase can also be heard if the player enters the Hard Mode code into the game.

Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain

  • Gabe uses this during Lian's unsanctioned mission to recover Imani's remains. He curses to Teresa, asking why she didn't stop Lian from leaving.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

  • Gabe mutters this phrase when he returns from a phony mission on the behest of Richard Kress. He arrives at the UN tent to find Janzen and a wounded soldier dead.

Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow

  • Gabe first uses this phrase when he approaches the St. Helens. Upon discovering that Special Forces were sent to secure Cordell's cargo, he curses.
  • After boosting Trinidad into the rooftop only for her to escape, Gabe again mutters this phrase.
  • The phrase is used again during the assault on Bitar's dam, when Lian abandons her post and renders herself incommunicado to rescue Shen.
