|Killzone 2, Killzone 3(split screen)|
Alpha’s best hand-to-hand fighter and demolitions expert, Natko is definitely a hands-dirty kind of guy in combat. Like Rico, he is older than Sev and Garza and comes from a relatively humble background, enlisting with many others when the Helghast first appeared to threaten their way of life. He is an experienced and highly capable soldier with no aspirations to command, having risen through the ranks as high as he would wish to go. Natko has no qualms about killing anyone who aims a weapon at him, but does not share Rico’s extreme hatred of the Helghast. Foul-mouthed and a frequent complainer, Natko is most comfortable when he’s bitching about something. Ironically, it is he who breaks up most of the heated arguments between hot-tempered Rico and the other members of Alpha Squad, serving as something of a friendly mediator despite being depicted as the squad's resident asshole. After the death of Dante Garza, it is Natko who most often acts as the peacemaker between Rico and Sevchenko, trying his best to hold the unit together.
Natko's weapon of choice is the LS13 semi-automatic Shotgun, which he uses with deadly efficiency on the battlefield. At the end of Killzone 2 during the assault on Visari's Palace Natko single handedly guards the front entrance while Sev and Rico fight Radec and Visari's personal guard inside. This is the last time Natko is seen in the game, despite surviving the attack.
Natko appears in Killzone 3 as the second-player character in the split-screen co-op campaign. In the Jungle mission in co-op Natko is referred to as "Sergeant Natko", a promotion from his previous rank of Corporal. He is not apparent in any cutscenes in either single player or co-op, and is only mentioned during co-op gameplay when needing medical assistance.
