* CharacterCustomization: Provides a slight subversion to the above trope. You'll also be able to tweak your character, not just his class, any time you want. Options include different tops, bottoms, face and head gear for the two factions, but you can also change core features like your face and body type. This is because your body type is actually a gameplay thing- TheBigGuy can [[MightyGlacier use big guns]] and take a lot of hits, but the FragileSpeedster has the most freedom of movement and LeParkour ability. There is of course, [[JackOfAllStats a middleweight type]] if you prefer a balanced approach.

* GasMaskMooks: If you're on the Resistance side then Security may have them if they use "The Bouncer", "The Shield" or "The Unit" head parts. (Though "The Unit" subverts it slightly by having the face still clearly visible.

Poor AI, bad coding and gameplay elements combined to kill the title on initial reviews and early after release with the end result being a critical and commercial failure that didn't last for very long as a viable multiplayer game, with a competitive scene that was dead on arrival.

** An example from a developer interview--one map, played as Security, involves eliminating a Resistance biological weapons lab. The same map, played as Resistance, has an objective of defending a vaccine manufacturing area. The developer was quoted as wanting players to make the connection that vaccines are developed from viruses. Complicating the issue is that both sides appear to be operating under limited or false information.
** Which is highlighted with neon-green paint in the final What-If mission in the Resistance's campaign, where [[spoiler: they destroy a vital component of The Ark's function, fatally irradiating the whole thing, and are then berated by their leader, Chen, for not realizing that he was only bluffing]].

** Or when the Resistance's goal is to leave the Ark to reintegrate with the outside world (crippling the Ark's ability to remain functional in the process) when Security [[spoiler:already thinks that the world has become a horrid MadMax wasteland, and the men they sent to discover this were all slaughtered, when in fact there are peaceful civilizations out there, they just don't know about it.]]

* OneWordTitle



* PoorCommunicationKills: Chen [[spoiler: refuses to tell the Founders Council that the arkoral is going sterile and dying and that the Ark is literally crumbling beneath them, all because he fears he'll be used as TheScapegoat and nothing will change. Had he shared this information, the Founders may well have been motivated into action and decided to risk contacting the outside world.]]

* CustomUniform: Standard procedure for The Security. This includes everything from a regular button-down police shirt to full-on riot gear and a BadAss military jacket.

* AKA47: Several guns come off as this-the Drognav (Dragunov), [[GatlingGood Gotlung machinegun]], and every pistol except the revolver.

to:

* AKA47: Several The guns come off as this-the Drognav (Dragunov), [[GatlingGood Gotlung machinegun]], this, coupled with clever wordplay:
** '''Kalt''' (a 1911) sounds like ''Colt'',
** '''Tokmak''' combines ''Tok''arev
and every pistol except ''Mak''arov, but is clearly shaped like the revolver.Bul Cherokee,
** The '''Sea Eagle''' is named after the ''Desert Eagle''. Its model, the Jericho, is nicknamed the Baby Eagle.
** The game's only revolver is called '''Ritchie'''. Because ''{{Film/Revolver}}'' is a Guy ''Ritchie'' film.
** The '''Belgo''', a [=VBR PDW=], references the original machine pistol's ''Belgian'' origin.
** The '''Hockler''' ([=MP7=]) blended up ''Heckler & Koch'''s name.
** The '''Drognav''' parodies the ''Dragunov'', despite being built like a [=DSR=].
** Likewise with the '''Barnett''' to the ''Barrett'' M82, but it's modelled after the Mauser [=SR=]-93.
** The '''Tampa''' expands on the Steyr ''[=TMP=]'''s name.
** The '''Galactic''' pays tribute to the ''Universal'' Submachine Gun, or the [=UMP=].
** The '''Kross''' is a ''Kriss'' Vector. Because "[[{{Pun}} crisscross]]".
** The '''Bulpdaun''''s name is a play on its ''bullp[=UP=]'' form.
** The '''Euston''' (an [=AR=]-15) used the name of ''Eu''gene ''Ston''er.
** The ''[=SIG=]'' lookalike ''[=AR=]'' is called '''Rhett'''. Try pronouncing it very fast: [=Sig-Ar-Rhett=]. Sigarrhett. ''[[{{Pun}} Cigarette]]''!
** '''Gerund''' (a modified M14) sounds like ''Garand''.
** The '''[=FRKN-3K=]''' is a [=FAMAS=] with a crazy name.
** The '''Mossington''' combines ''Moss''berg and Rem''ington'', but is shaped like a Benelli.
** If you're too legit to call the automatic shotgun anything other than an M1216, then [[Music/MCHammer Stop]]! '''Hjammerdaim'''.
** The '''Lobster''' (a [GL-06]) ''lobs'' grenades.
** The '''[=EZ=]-Nade''' ''easily'' achieves GrenadeSpam.
** The '''Maximus''' plays on the name ''Mini''mi (M249).
** The '''Chinzor''' is built like the Chain[=SAW=], but its name makes no sense otherwise.
** And of course, the '''[[GatlingGood Gotlung]]''' machine gun.

Added DiffLines:

** GodzillaThreshold: In the resistance canon ending, this is crossed;[[spoiler: Sure, people beyond the Ark may well be hostile savages, but the sad fact of the matter is that the ''Ark is dying''; the arkoral has gone sterile and the Ark is slowly crumbling out from beneath them, and the Guest slums are not so slowly rusting away. Ironically, Chen and the resistance don't know that they're crossing this line because they don't know about the hostiles in the outside world, and more so, the resistance members themselves don't know that the line ''needs'' to be crossed as Chen hasn't told anyone - Founder or Guest - about the problem with the arkoral.]]
