* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Two GameBreakingBug: Despite the games updates, sometimes missions can become broken either due to a mistake in the patch or compatibility. The second to last CCA mission requires you to free several engineers from a Black Dog prison and you can find abandoned craft and facilities to help you recapture the recycler but as of 1.5, an engineer will not hop out of the weapons, one named APC and into her unit factory. Thankfully this doesn't break the MDM Mortar in which mission completely, if you're really daring, you can pick up the MDM stands engineers, run for Manual-Detonation-Mortar, making it Manual-Detonation-Mortar Mortar. Then there's the MAG Cannon, recycler, recapture it and still be able to complete the MAG standing for Magnetic-Acceleration-Gun which makes it Magnetic-Acceleration-Gun Cannon. Finally, there's the TAG Cannon which makes it Target-Acquisition-Gun Cannon which it is neither of those, it's mission without a Missile launcher (although it is mounted in the Stoli's Cannon mount). problem.

* CivilWarcraft: [[spoiler:Happens with both sides over the course of the campaign. Once Cooke joins Braddock's against the Scions, the ISDF splinters into Braddock's New Regime and Major Manson's AAN Loyalists which plan on returning to Earth with the news of Braddock's takeover but you're sent in to clean up any resistance and silence any witnesses, further solidifying your MoralEventHorizon. Should you join the Scions however, the Scions have an issue of their own with a clan of Scions not wishing to colonize the Dark Planet into a new Core as that would mean them returning to the Solar System, preferring death over going back from where they fled. You also aid the AAN Loyalists against Braddock's New Regime on the Scion side as well]].

* HumanResources: [[spoiler:The Hadean Crown used a craft known as Charon to gather the bodies of dying Greek soldiers in order to make Strain III biometal used in the Furies. It's implied that the Furies capture pilots to use them to create the same strain. This makes them even more unsettling as a Fury unit could potentially be made up of former soldiers that used to fight alongside you]]. --> '''"Thunderbolt" Bomber Pilot''': [[spoiler:No way, I'm not going back out there!

* HitAndRunTactics: The role of the rocket bomber units. Their high speed but low turn rate makes them ideal for running up, firing a volley of missiles then retreating for another go when piloted by players. One mission of the CCA campaign has you taking a squadron of bombers to destroy a Black Dog Recycler to save a battalion that is locked in combat.

* HomingProjectile: Several kinds. The ILS (Image Locking Shadower) missile locks onto the visual signature of a target but can be spoofed by the Phantom VIR device or simply ducking behind cover. The "TAG Cannon" fires a homing tag, followed by a swarm of missiles. The "Thermal Hornet" tracks heat signatures but can be diverted by "Solar Flare" mines. The "Comet" Cruise Missile locks onto radar signatures but can be shaken off by the RED-Field Generator. There's also the slow-moving, massively damaging missiles used by [[spoiler: the Furies]], which cannot be fooled but [[ShootTheBullet can be destroyed in-flight]] as they hover off the ground. [[VideoGame/{{Battlezone1980}} Sound familiar?]]
