* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Units that lose 75% of their HP are "down", and send up a flare to signal for evacuation after recharging their shields. Particularly unpleasant enemies may continue firing on them, or at their transport choppers, in order to kill them completely (see: LostForever). The acceptability, fairness, and overall jerkitude of using this tactic is debated in multiplayer games.

* LostForever: Any unit which ''completely'' loses their HitPoints is removed from your persistent battalion - as is its experience. It's immediately replaced by a green unit, but still, you feel it.

** It should be noted that units being 'killed' in the game are LostForever, which doesn't always happen with your units being hit by a WMD, but it will make them incapable of fighting.

** The ''ElitePack'' DLC added [[UpToEleven Elite Armies]] ''[[UpToEleven for]]'' [[UpToEleven the Elite Armies]]: the JSF 15th Special Operations, Spetsnaz Alpha Brigade and EF Battlegroup 1. How Elite? Where every other army is lead by a [[ColonelBadass Colonel]], this one is lead by a [[FourStarBadass General]]. Heck, 40 turns into the game, the overall commander of the '''entire faction''' takes over the Elite battalion (for the AI).

* NuclearNullifier: Following Saudi Arabia getting crippled in 2016 by a nuclear terrorist attack, the US and EU created the SLAMS (Space-Land-Air Missile Shield) System, an anti-ballistic missile defense that rendered strategic nuclear warfare obsolete. Unfortunately, it also had the side effect of making large scale conventional warfare possible again, which would cause a rise in tensions that would eventually lead to World War III.

*** Though there is a possible reference: One of the nicknames a JSF command vehicle (presumably where the battalion commander is) can get is [[Film/Scarface1983 Scarface]], and in Generation Kill the commander of the 1st Recon Battalion is nicknamed [[Film/TheGodfather Godfather]].

** Subverted in "Endwar Online" - after ten years of war, [[PhyrricVictory NONE of the factions won]], [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction the war has blasted all of their territories back to the stone age]], [[BalkanizeMe and their former territories have fallen into breakaway states]] [[EnemyCivilWar and civil war]]. Double-Subverted in that the goal of "Endwar Online" is to not just reunite the selected faction, but also to "win the Endwar" [[HereWeGoAgain by conquering the other two factions]].
