* Play it long enough and you'll eventually find yourself doing things not entirely out of place in BlackHawkDown kind of movie. Wether it be single player, multiplayer, CoOp, adversarial. You'll soon find yourself calling or doing a GunshipRescue with a BigDamnHeroes moment. Providing cover fire as a ColdSniper from a thousand meters away, [[OutrunTheFireball outrunning explosions]] and more. Truly, there are very few [[MilitaryAndWarfareTropes warfare related tropes]] that you cannot [[InvokedTrope invoke]], or [[PlayedStraight play straight]] in this game (with the awesomeness that ensuess).

** Especially awesome, as ARMA is a game that takes great pleasure in punishing you heavily if you mess up. That wasn't some scripted event you were handheld through, YOU were the driving force that crawled out of a crashed helicopter with 2 broken legs and single-handedly took down that AA position yelling "OUT OF SPITE MOTHERFUCKER".

CrowningMusicOfAwesome : If you thought the original ''OperationFlashpoint'' had some pretty nifty music tracks, wait until you hear the soundtrack of the ''ARMA II'' games...

'''Harvest Red'''

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RktS3T5wNw&feature=player_detailpage#t=66s Insertion]]", the {{Badass}} Cousin of "Slow Blades" from the original ''OFP''
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=wSfa3LIgiyk#t=180s Harvest Red]]" (the main theme)
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=wSfa3LIgiyk#t=340s Logistics]]"
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=0yrnCRR0sAk#t=256s Close Quarter Combat]]"
* And for some, the balalaika and concertina filled "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Doy9CZC9lP0&feature=related Chernarussian Anthem]]"


'''Operation Arrowhead'''

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttB49WckG5o Good Morning Takistan]]"
* the entire "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X35SidA46gM&feature=related British Armed Forces DLC OST]]"
* various track with a Middle Eastern feel, like "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTNnDKvM67c&feature=player_detailpage#t=253s Zargabad Market]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfZhh8VDlSU&feature=related Iron Mountain]]" or "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhPmJQfZhCg&feature=related Death From Above]]"
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfZhh8VDlSU&feature=player_detailpage#t=317s Mountain Chant]]" is the go-to track for a OneWomanWail
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DslIvpl94hU&feature=player_detailpage#t=256s Revolver Jam]]" is a general chill-out song


'''[[ThemeTuneCameo Theme Tune Cameos]] and {{Homage}}s to the music of the original OperationFlashpoint''':
* ''Armed Assault's'' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LO2lI39gFbs&feature=related Black Ops Theme]]" is basically a new arrangement of ''OFP'''s main theme.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=8RktS3T5wNw#t=174s First to Fight]] from ''ARMA II'' is apparently a tip-of-the-hat to the style of ''OFP'''s soundtrack.
