* WorstAid: The game requires the player to perform quick "medical care" in the field when injured if his or her health drops to one bar. This generally involves resetting broken bones with your bare hands, pulling pieces of shrapnel and stray branches from your gut, and removing bullets with pliers (or ''ejecting them from your elbow by straightening your arm''), all without even bandaging the wound up and immediately getting back into the fight (to be fair, one animation has your character lighting a bunch of matches and then cauterizing the open wound). You even spit out a tooth in one. Hilariously, this also applies to the gradual damage you take while drowning, and you can heal yourself from the damage taken by drowning in the same way when standing in shallow enough water, leading to you [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enb0zWbYUik getting bullet wounds, broken limbs, and broken teeth]] by ''swimming''!

* YouNoTakeCandle: Xianyong Bai (Chinese) and Josip Idromeno (Albanian) both speak imperfect English.

** This reaches [[UpToEleven ridiculous level]], as the weapons get visibly degraded after firing several magazines worth of ammo and break after shooting several more. Even the AK/FAL assault/battle rifles, famed for their robust design. Just to put things in perspective, most weapons of this kind are able to shoot tens of thousand times before they start to malfunction; the in-game ones are so fragile that the USAS-12 ''visibly'' corrodes with every single shell you put through it, and the Dart Rifle will blow up on you after only '''twenty-five shots'''. Bonus points for protagonists being military (or ex-military) who should know how to maintain their guns. They are implied to be shoddy knockoffs, though (some weapons are marked as having been made by Precision Armaments, a real-world company known for, well, shoddy knockoffs).
** As stated below in "Boring But Practical", the M79 Grenade Launcher, SVD sniper rifle, and LPO-50 flamethrower have plentiful durability and can be upgraded to last longer. Having such high durability, they're going to be the weapons you'll be carrying around a lot.

* DiscOneNuke: The [[BlingBlingBang golden AK-47s]] can be acquired right after the beginning of the game. They will more than last you for the huge majority of the game due to being the least rust-prone out of any firearm. However, [[GuideDangIt they are scattered in very-easy-to-miss areas]] and finding one of them will require a lot of traveling through [[GoddamnBats enemy checkpoints]] just to get to that very place.

You'll also need to shell out for a primary storage crate to put it away if you ever want to use anything else without losing it.



* DownloadableContent: The ''Fortunes Pack'' adds three new weapons (sawed-off shotgun, silenced shotgun, explosive crossbow) in a crate in the middle of the Arms Dealer's warehouse, and two new vehicles, the Unimog (a big truck that always has an M2) and quad bike, which respectively replace some of the trucks and cars. Handy when your starter RPG (If you even get it over the LPO) decides to explode in your face. Good luck taking on moving jeeps with hand grenades.

* EnemyScan: The monocular magically fills in everything in "major" area if you spot one thing of that type; the types are vehicles, weapons (mounted guns and snipers), first aid and ammo. Spotting the main powerup in a checkpoint counts as "scouting" it.

* BadassIsraeli: One of the player characters, Paul Ferenc, is from Israel. He served in the Israeli military before going AWOL and becoming a mercenary.

* BadassIsraeli: One of the player characters, Paul Ferenc, is from Israel. He served in the Israeli military before going AWOL and becoming a mercenary. The trope is somewhat zig-zagged since, even though he is clearly a badass just like your other merc buddies, by all accounts he spent most of his [=IDF=] service doing clerical work and was also high during much of it.

* TheAllSeeingAI: Like ''Far Cry'', stealth is rendered difficult by the AI being unable to see the same things as the player: while the guards are no longer able to look straight through tents, they still can't see any 2D scenery, which includes ''most of the foliage in the game''.

Added DiffLines:

* PermanentlyMissableContent: There are 2 buddies in the North region and 1 buddy in the South region that can be completely missed, and cannot be obtained after the end of Act I (the North) or the end of Act II (the South).

* FromCamouflageToCriminal: Most of the available player characters have some kind of military background and given the types of things they do during the game, qualify as criminals. The Jackal also most definitely fits the bill as he is a former U.S. Navy SEAL.

Several of the player characters have military service listed early in their dossier, followed by criminal activity later in their careers. The Jackal also most definitely fits the bill as he is a former U.S. Navy SEAL.

After publisher Ubisoft and developer Crytek parted ways, Crytek kept their engine and went on to create ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'', while Ubisoft retained the name rights and went on to develop ''Far Cry 2'', a sequel in terms of a ThematicSeries that has the player take the role of one of a dozen mercenaries working in a war-torn African nation, playing both sides while hunting a notorious arms dealer known as the Jackal.

* BecomingTheMask: The quote above is from the "Infamy" tape, where the Jackal talks about how to break a man's will and spirit. He warns if you lose yourself in the carnage you become sloppy and make unnecessary risks and could die from them.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The [[GoldColoredSuperiority Gold]] AK-47s are a downplayed example. While the AK-47 is one of the best guns (decent accuracy and power with high durability) the Gold versions do the same exact thing but degrade slower at the cost of limited number (''8'' hidden across both maps, 4 on each). There's no reason to get them other than for [[BraggingRightsReward bragging rights]]
