** The "Market Garden" map in ''1942''. The battle of Arnhem was fought by the British 1st Airborne Division, yet the playable Allied faction of the map is American. For balance reasons, Allies are given tanks and heavy artillery on this map, while in real life the British paratroopers lacked of such support and lost the battle as a result. [[HandWave Then again, if the game didn't give the Allies any support at all, the Axis would have won almost every game played on "Market Garden", leading to an outcry of unfairness]].

** A sizable amount of the entire arsenal of Battlefield 1 are these, admittedly mostly so it [[Main/AcceptableBreaksFromReality still feels like a Battlefield game]].

* GunPorn: Later ''Battlefield'' games likes to include a huge number of guns, both [[CoolGuns famous]] and [[RareGuns obscure]], all researched, modeled and animated with a high level of detail. ''Battlefield 4'' itself had over 100 guns!



* YouALLLookFamiliar: The ''Battlefield'' games typically only had 3 different faces for each side.
