* PinkMist: Averted due partially to the need to avoid a rating higher than T, and partially to the fact that [[RealityIsUnrealistic 5.56mm bullets rarely cause that kind of]] {{Gorn}}. Plus, the game is a [[JoinTheArmyTheySaid recruiting tool]]; people are likely to be less open to joining the Army if their death was just rendered in agonizingly gory detail. [[CaptainObvious Those to whom such things would appeal are generally more unstable than Army recruiters would like]]; folks of that persuasion [[TakeThat should go sign up with]] [[InterserviceRivalry the Marines.]]

* DrillSergeantNasty: Averted, the meanest Drill Sergeants still aren't that mean. There actually are files in the installation for a pretty nasty Drill Sergeant, but he [[DummiedOut does not appear in game]].
** Which is actually an accurate representation of the Army's drill instructors today. The [[SemperFi Marines]] on the other hand...

Somewhere around the crack of the 21st century, higher-ups at the [[YanksWithTanks United States Army]] sought for a way to remedy their waning recruitment rates and number of new recruits dropping out of training, and came up with a plan to get American teenagers interested in joining the Army: A free [[hottip:*:(except to American taxpayers, who pay about two cents each for the project)]] online FirstPersonShooter based on ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' that educates players on the Army's principles and technical aspects through simulated "first-hand" experiences.
