Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the Definitive Edition UpdatedReRelease, the various lingerie ad posters have all been removed. Somewhat jarring, considering they were pretty tame and actually fit the tropical resort setting fairly well.

* GrenadeSpam: Entirely possible at the end of Ryder White's campaign, save and you'll have twenty of each. You can conceivably run from Charon to Emily and the end game with explosives alone.



* PunchClockVillain: [[spoiler: Colonel White's BIDF soldiers.]]

to:

* PrisonRape: Implied when starting the prison levels, despite the gang leader asserting TheWomenAreSafeWithUs.

* ShownTheirWork: The vehicles of which are mostly utes and four wheel drives have the drivers seat to the right and the road signs and markings are Australian. The ute is kind of a symbol in Australia and ideal for the resort and city streets as well as the more rugged terrain of the jungle. There's even the old Australian Broadcasting Commission image on some televisions (for when ABC1 would show when the station was closed, before it began running 24 hours.)

** Holding a gun close to a door or wall and your character will adjust their aim from down the sights to pointing up.

Added DiffLines:

* DisposablePilot: Ryder White's campaign begins when one of the pilots flying the army helicopter turns and attacks his co-pilot, resulting in a fiery crash and White emerging as the only survivor.


Added DiffLines:

** Ryder White's campaign is filled with this, likely to help disguise the fact that its only a few hours long. When the player isn't running and shooting like mad at the endless waves of Infected or being shot by hostile human survivors they can look forward to seeing a respawn screen after accidentally running into yet another poorly placed Suicider and getting blown away before they even realize what is going on.


Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: The Ryder White campaign gives players several crates worth of firearms, ammo, med kits and even heavy explosives and still manages to feel like the game is holding out. The massive hordes of [[DemonicSpider DemonicSpiders]] and borderline TrialAndErrorGameplay might have something to do with that.

Added DiffLines:

* PoisonedWeapons: Several mods allow the player to turn bladed weapons and even guns into this. One of the most powerful is described as causing the zombies to literally puke their guts out, which can be seen when its effect kicks in.

** However, the biggest example is in the prologue chapter. When you are first introduced to the zombies, you’re supposed to run your ass off. But, if you’re feeling ballsy...you can stick around and fight them...[[OhCrap only to find out that they are level 60]]! With a little patience, you can actually kill them and gain a few levels before starting the actual game. If you really want to, you can abuse some SaveScumming to get yourself to level 60 before moving on.
