* FriendlyFireproof: Enforced by the game--trying to shoot a civilian will result in the character saying no (and if you ''do'' manage to harm them somehow, you'll get [[NonstandardGameOver kicked out of the game]].)



* GuideDangIt: It's not immediately obvious that [[spoiler:you have to make the final shot on Juarez as a duel - i.e. flick the control stick to draw - because every previous duel was announced openly]].

to:

* GrapplingHookPistol: Billy's whip can act as this.
* GuideDangIt: It's not immediately obvious that [[spoiler:you have to make the final shot on Juarez as a duel - i.e. flick the control stick to draw - because every previous duel was announced openly]]. All the more frustrating because you only have a split-second, and must watch a long unskippable cutscene before every attempt.



* NoobBridge: A certain jump near the beginning of episode VII requires you to grapple a branch with the whip, then shorten the whip to bring yourself upwards before swinging across to the ledge. The in-game tutorial never mentions that you can shorten or lengthen the whip when grappling, so players who don't bother to read manuals will likely get stuck on that part for a while.



* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Some of the bosses.

to:

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Some of the bosses.bosses deliver fairly long speeches before you begin fighting them; of course, the protagonist just stands there and waits for them to finish.


Added DiffLines:

* VideogameCrueltyPunishment: Harming civilians or horses will quickly result in an unceremonious NonstandardGameOver.

Added DiffLines:

* ThrowAwayGuns: All guns have limited durability and will explode after enough shots, so you never hold onto a particular gun for long. Higher quality guns do last longer, but will break down eventually.

Added DiffLines:

* HandCannon: The pair of lever-action Volcano Pistols you get from Juarez after your duel against him near the end of the game. They're the most powerful pistols in the game and will kill any enemy in one shot, while still having a sizable ammo capacity and rate of fire.

** In the extra story on the original Call of Juarez [[spoiler: The unnamed sheriff kills his corrupt boss, County Commissioner Grizzwald, and the bandit, Vasquez, is executed leaving Round Rock in peace... but the whole town saw him gun down Grizzwald and Vasquez was the only person who knew he was corrupt, forcing the sheriff to flee to Mexico, or get hung by the citizens.]]

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: After several levels of linear cowboy slaying, Billy wakes up from a headshot to the face to find himself dumped into a WideOpenSandbox spirit quest taking place in a ''huge'' continuous forest and lake map.

** Happens whenever the game shifts from Billy to Ray and vice versa. Billy's levels are more stealth orientated, due to him being a FragileSpeedster, whereas Ray's are more about brute force.

''Call of Juarez'' is a fast-paced, adrenaline-driven {{Western}} FirstPersonShooter, where the player [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent alternatingly assumes the roles of Billy and Reverend Ray]], who is after his head. Billy is more of a FragileSpeedster with heavy emphasis on [[StealthBasedGame stealth]], whereas Ray is a MightyGlacier ''and'' TheGunslinger, which allows for an interesting twist: revisiting [[RemixedLevel the same level]] (Ray is chasing after Billy, after all) never grows boring, thanks to the vastly different gameplay styles of the two.
