According to A Meat Bicycle Built for Two film, Krieg's sane self can only talk to the psycho and urge him to say things "outside".

Can rare phrases of sane Krieg in-game be heard by other players?

  • Can the person playing Krieg hear them?

Yes, they can (tested playing with zer0, Maya, and Salvador.) However, it's usually so quiet that other players can't hear it unless little else is happening and music volume is turned way down.



There are many sentences that we hear coming from the inner voice

Krieg seems to suffer from Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD). He argues with himself in some of his quotes, and he has a very quiet 'inner voice' which occasionally tells him what to do or comments on his surroundings--it is very difficult to hear unless sound effects and volume are turned down very low.

In the Krieg page on borderlands wikia you can read all his quotes including the "inner voice" quotes.
