* RevenueEnhancingDevices: In the March 2012 patch, DICE rolled out the Rent-a-Server plan, allowing {{Playstation 3}} and {{Xbox 360}} players to customize their own personal server like PC players. The "revenue enchancing" part comes in when players, tired of custom settings and abusive server admins, try finding vanilla DICE servers, only to find out that EA phased nearly all of them out.

** One of the government agents that investigates Blackburn is a spitting image of voice actor Glenn Morshower. As Morshower is well known as Aaron Pierce, Presidential Bodyguard on 24, this is also a case of HeyItsThatGuy.

* HarsherInHindsight: Throughout the "Comrades" mission, you control Dima [[spoiler: in an attempt to stop a terrorist attack in Paris, dated on November 13]]. Cue back to reality, where [[spoiler: there was actually a city-wide terrorist attack on Paris on November 13, 2015]]. The game's date is supposedly set one year before, [[spoiler: but the similarities of the attacks are amazing, specially with the terrorists who attempted to attack the stadium and were stopped at the train stations, much like Battlefield 3's mission has you fight on a train station]].

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** The Russian team has a "Paratrooper" camouflage available in Multiplayer that matches the camo pattern worn by Russian Federation paratroopers during the "Rock and a Hard Place" mission in the single player campaign.
** On the map Seine Crossing, the attackers must pass through an alley or a road, with the road being flanked on both sides by tall buildings. Engineers with [=RPGs=] or Assaults with grenade launchers can shoot at the buildings, and the rubble will crush whoever was unfortunate enough to be caught in it.
** Before the End Game DLC, the only way to get the M1911 S-TAC(an M1911 with both suppressor and flashlight) was to pick it up off the dead bodies of a DICE Dev's soldier, in a practace known as kit hunting. After End Game, however, there is an assignment which unlocks the M1911 S-TAC and a dogtag for you. What does the dog tag say on it? "No more kit hunting".

** All major characters are based on their voice actors. The exception is Dima; his character model is based on Oleg Taktarov of ''{{Predators}}'' fame, but he's actually voiced by André Sogliuzzo.
