I’m pretty sure “merde” is French for “shit”.

It is. He asked me, I answered.

I don’t go in full swearing mode often.

Yeah, I asked Zero what the french equivalent of ‘…oh f*ck’ was, and that’s what he gave me.

Translation semantics, really. There probably ISN’T a DIRECT french equivalent of ‘…oh f*ck’, but that is as close as the situation warrents.

In most movies, if in the english version they say ‘Fuck!’ the french version will say 95% of the time ‘Merde!’

I stand THOROUGHLY corrected.
