** It probably doesn't help that [[spoiler:Blackburn]] doesn't call for assistance at any point during the fight.

*ApatheticCitizens: While Blackburn is having [[spoiler: final confrontation with Solomon in Times Square,]] a crowd of civilians gathers to watch while you struggle to kill the bastard. None of them step in to do something, and if you fail the QTE, [[spoiler: Solomon will set off a Nuclear Device and kill them all.]]

* QuickMelee: There is the standard version of it, the "press the button and stab with one motion". That takes at least two swipes to kill someone however. If the player does it from behind a player, they will preform a takedown move instead, which kills in one stab and awards the player with the victim's dogtags.

** Some of the Assignments released with Back To Karkand and Close Quarters are shout outs. "Professional Russian" to unlock the [=L85A2=] is a shoutout to Website/YouTube gun and weapon video maker FPS Russia. The PP-19 and Jackhammer assignments were called "Familiar Territory" and "Scarred Veteran" as those guns were from ''Battlefield 2''. The SCAR-L assignment in Close Quarters is called "[[VideoGame/ZeroWing Set us up the bomb]]".

* UnorthodoxReload: Averted. Every weapon is reloaded correctly. From the .44 Magnum, with which the player will properly eject the casings with the ejector rod and insert new cartridges with a speed loader, and close the chambers with his thumb to prevent misalignment; to every shotgun, where when loaded from empty the first shell is put directly into the chamber via the breech. The only thing that could be considered unorthodox would be reloading of the AN-94 or AEK-971, where the player pushes the magazine release with a new magazine and flicks the old magazine out of the way, but even this method of reloading is legitimate, as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz9n3ABm1S0 demonstrated]] in the training video for Russian Ministry of home affairs.

* TechDemoGame: ''Battlefield 3'' doesn't support DirectX 9, hence it can't run on Windows XP. It was one of the first applications to have a real impact in driving people to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7. The console versions have 4 rows of pixels on the top and bottom of the screen blacked out to speed up performance while maintaining graphical fidelity, since you mostly won't notice the blacked-out rows anyway.
