* MercyInvincibility: Of a sorts. The "Second Chance" upgrade [[LastChanceHitPoint allows you to survive what would have been a fatal hit]], but only if you can [[OhCrap find a health pickup within the next ten seconds]]- less difficult then it sounds, as health drops are common.



* MilitaryMashupMachine: Inferno's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Juggernauts]] certainly count- massive war machines armed with [[MacrossMissileMassacre multiple rocket turrets]] and riding on four separate tread pods.

* NitroBoost: Every vehicle can engage an infinite boost. It's mostly useful for traveling around a map faster, as you cannot fire any weapons while boosting. However, you can get a boost upgrade that allows you to use a quick, even faster boost to evade enemies or put out flames on your car.
** Not to mention that Blazemo can upgrade his buggy to let him boost while his special is in effect, the only thing worse than [[IncendiaryExponent a car on fire coming at you is a car on fire that's coming at you]] ''[[OhCrap fast]]''.

''Renegade Ops'' is a [[TopDownView top-down]] Twin-Stick ShootEmUp developed by Creator/AvalancheStudios, creators of the JustCause series and published by {{SEGA}}. It was released on PlaystationNetwork on September 13th, 2011, and on XboxLiveArcade the following day. After a series of delays, it also came out on {{Steam}} for the PC on October 27th. As the story goes, one day Avalanche were toying with the idea of depicting [[JustCause Just Cause's]] over-the-top action and vehicle combat as a top-down shooter. The result was apparently [[SoCoolItsAwesome awesome,]] as they decided to make a game out of such.
