** At one point, there was a bug that caused Cable to constantly cycle through his numerous animations, and the bug would continue even after he was defeated and removed from the fight. Many of his animations involved a lot of movement or flashy effects, which could hinder the performance of some players' devices and even cause the game to lag out and crash. A number of players took advantage of this and placed Cable on their PVP Defense teams, earning them easy defense victories whenever the challenger's game crashed.

** Spec Ops 30 has your player team up with Spitfire and HeelFaceTurn Baron Mordo against Morgan le Fay, Hela, Umar, and Dracula. The fight against the three witches is a nod to HocusPocus.

* BrokenStreak: [=SpecOps=] 6 started the trend of PVP heroes being a RequiredPartyMember with Deadpool. [=SpecOps=] 14 bucked this tradition by instead using previous [=SpecOps=] heroes, Mockingbird and Valkyrie. When [=SpecOps=] 15 rolled around, both a PVP hero and a [=SpecOps=] hero (Bishop and Emma Frost, respectively) became the requisites, both following the previous trend and presumably starting a new one at the same time. The setback in 14 may have something to do with the controversial results of PVP season 9 where virtually all PVP participants in that tournament were awarded Angel.

** You can get Mockingbird for FREE when you defeat ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}} three times consecutively (without retreating) in Captain America's story. You will know you have accomplished this task if you get "Free As A Bird" achievement in Avengers Initiative. At least, it was like that until Initiative got sunsetted in April 2014 - which makes these prizes LostForever. The costume and Mockingbird can be bought for Command Points, but the Marvel XP rewards are no longer obtainable.

* LostForever: Limited Edition equipment and items that are only available after research as a Spec Op or PVP task (aka the "Blueprint" research items), as well as Spec Op boss rewards. Certain limited-edition costumes (notably the ones for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and the [[ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen Phoenix Five]]) are lost to those who didn't buy them but occasionally become available for purchase.
** Averted with the Spec Op and [=PvP=] tournament heroes, who are always released for purchase at some point (albeit with a hefty CP price tag).
** This seems to be the case with the Lockbox heroes. Playdom is slowly expiring the oldest lockbox sets to be replaced by new collections. Those who have no interest or postponed unlocking these heroes won't be able to do so anymore ''(at least not without paying a hefty fee in Gold, as the older lockboxes occassionally pop up in PvP Roulette Spins every now and again.)''
** ''The game itself'' will be this after September 30th 2016.

** Christmas 2014: Just like the previous year, on December 25 you can open the lockboxes to get Hybrid. What's so special about this hero? The fact that it has five costumes (for each non-generalist class) for a total of six [=E-ISOs=] and twenty [=A-ISOs=]!
** Christmas 2015: Same as the last two years, this time the hero is ComicBook/HowardTheDuck!

* GameBreakingBug: Combat Validation Errors. Earlier versions had battles cut off in the middle of a battle when there is an important update, forcing you to refresh the browser. Newer patches moved the force refresh at the end of the battle. Woe to players who are forced to refresh an important boss fight. The most frustrating part is these battles are marked as a total defeat, drastically reducing your gained mastery (in PVE) or your overall rating (in PVP). This is especially punishing in [=SpecOps=], where mastery progress is very crucial and wasting more Unstable Iso-8 just to have another whole chapter run.

** Customized Weapons. Customized means that upon acquisition, the weapon level is set 5-10 levels above the agent's level. However, this means they can get obsolete. Consider the stamina costs to using the weapon and compare it to damage output while playing [=PvP=], Five-starred Missions, Spec Ops, Premium Missions, or Challenge Mode. Consider if the weapon is really worth using 15 levels later when the damage output is lower.
*** You can now reforge your Customized weapons. However, they cost gold, and in this case Patience is everything. The cost of reforging is as much as purchasing a Limited Edition weapon, and even then, it will eventually have to be reforged. The best strategy (unless you're willing to shell out Gold) is to wait until you're level 300 to reforge.
