* ShoutOut: You can hear broadcasts from GoodMorningVietnam in certain spawning points of some maps of Battlefield: Vietnam.

* SoftWater: Sort of. While you'll take less damage falling into water, you'll still die (or go into "critically wounded" mode if you hit water at a high enough height). In ''2'' and ''2142'', if you hit the water from a high height, you'll go into this state, but you'll never be out right killed like if you hit land.

* ThoseWackyNazis: The National Army in ''Battlefield Heroes'' is a collection of various Nazi and generally German stereotypes. It even references the trope, by naming one of the weapons "The Wacky Machine Gun"

* TitleDrop: "I belong to Bad Company. I don't wanna end up in some ''good'' company!" Also, the page quote. To be fair, it's kinda hard to go through a military shooter and ''not'' legitimately say "battlefield" anyway.

* WalkItOff: Averted for most of the series, but present in ''1943'', ''Bad Company 2'', and ''Battlefield 3''. While health regen for ''1943'' and the single player portion of ''Bad Company 2'' is quick, it's nerfed in ''Bad Company 2'' multiplayer and outright removed in hardcore mode as to not render medkits useless. * WeaponizedCar: ''Project Reality'', the Special Forces expansion pack of ''Battlefield 2'', and ''Battlefield 3'' all include "technicals"; pickup trucks fitted with machine guns or SPG-9 recoilless rifles. * WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There is no canonical outcome to the Cold War of the 22nd Century. It is generally assumed, however, that the [[UnitedEurope European Union]] took the win, given that, at the last known point in the war they were very much on top, and, if one takes the parallels with UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo to their logical conclusion, the EU are the Allies (attacked by surprise, pushed out of Europe, then reclaim with great vengeace). However, no definitive ending has ever been given. FridgeHorror kicks in when you realize that the reason for the war was the inability of the PAC to feed its citizens without Europe's food supplies, which the EU needed to feed ''their'' citizens. So presumably the war ends with EU victory...and mass famine in the PAC.

** ''Bad Company'' was going to roll out a program where players could purchase new guns with real money. This triggered a large InternetBacklash, so it was scrapped, but the idea returned in the form of an OldSaveBonus in ''2''.

*** ''ProjectReality'' averts this. The driver no longer mans the main gun on heavy attack vehicles. In order for a vehicle to be fully combat effective, one player must drive while another must gun. Of course, a person could simply just switch positions from driver to gunner, but this would give the enemy a time advantage. All vehicles, except for cars and [=FAVs=], now require a crewman kit (or pilot for air vehicles) to be driven.

* GrenadeSpam: There's a video for ModernWarfare that decries the use of Grenade Spam in the game, Fight Against Grenade Spam. Yeah, [[FunWithAcronyms FAGS]]. Not wanting to be outdone, Battlefield came up with its own video pointing out that this tactic won't work and called it FRAGS: Friends Really Against Grenade Spam. But as anyone who has played Operation Metro in Battlefield 2 would know, there is no way to stop grenade spam.
