* RareGuns: Possibly winning an award here: in several missions and the multiplayer, you're able to find the China Lake shotgun-style grenade launcher. This is an actual weapon, of which ''20 to 30'' made it in to service (never in the MACV-SOG) and which maybe six ''still'' exist. Say what you want about the G11 being in the game, the China Lake is possibly the rarest represented gun in any game series.

* RareGuns: RareGuns:
** Ignoring AnachronismStew for a moment, there are some really weird guns in this game, like ASP 9, Heckler and Koch G11, Spectre M4, M202 FLASH, WA 2000, Walther MPL, PM-63, Kiparis. Most of these are not well-known weapons, and others are too rare to see any kind of widespread use as seen in-game, if anachronism is ignored.

* JungleWarfare: "Victor Charlie", "Crash Site", and "Payback", which are set deep within the jungles of Vietnam. Averted with "SOG" and "The Defector", where the former has the surrounding vegetation destroyed from constant napalm strikes, while the latter is set within a city instead.

*EatingTheEyeCandy: During Mason's trip to the Pentagon, a SexySecretary blows smoke at Mason while giving him "fuck me" eyes. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] as the Interrogator's narration makes it absolutely clear [[TheMole she was a plant working for their organization in the CIA and was gathering info on Mason.]] [[spoiler: And then ''[[DoubleSubversion double subverted]]'' when it turns out the Interrogators are the ''CIA themselves'', meaning she really was just some horny secretary.]]

* {{WMG}}: As a game centered around the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, as well as the computer at the main menu room, it is prone to have fan ConspiracyTheories.

* PaintingTheMedium: Like how ''Modern Warfare'' presenting loading cutscenes as a military information system, the cutscenes in this game are all presented as classified government files and footage related to the topic at hand, distorted through Mason's brainwashing and hallucinations.

''Call of Duty: Black Ops'' is the sixth game in the originally UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-themed FPS series ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'', developed by Treyarch. Like ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'', it starts a new sub-series set in a new setting, but unlike ''Modern Warfare'', it takes place during the height of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. It serves as a sequel to the Treyarch-developed ''Call of Duty: World at War''. You play as Alex Mason, a {{CIA}} operative [[FramingDevice being interrogated about his involvement in various operations]], from an assassination attempt on UsefulNotes/FidelCastro to UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar and beyond. The bulk of the game plays out in a series of {{Flashback}}s that recall the many operations Mason participated in.
