* HistoricalInJoke: The "Kill Hitler" mission consists in sniping Hitler while he is in the Alps. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Foxley Something similar had really been imagined by the Allies]], though it was a British planand involved a pair of operatives instead of a single one.

** Also, it is possible to shoot an enemy in the testicles, often accompanied by an X-Ray cam of the gonads bursting like eggs. This will kill the target instantly [[note]]Sudden outbursts of extreme pain can indeed prove lethal in real life due to reflexogenic cardiac arrest[[/note]].

The story takes place in Germany during the final days of WWII and the player must navigate and fight their way through a city crawling with both Nazi and Soviet troops. As part of the [[ShownTheirWork Operation Paperclip]] program, Karl must find and identify several German scientists who want to defect away from the crumbing Nazi regime, killing the ones who join the Soviets and protecting the ones joining the Americans. Partway through his mission, though, he discovers that the Soviet-leaning scientists have decided to prove their loyalty to Stalin by using their '''Wunderwaffe''' against an unsuspecting target, and Karl must now fight his own ostensible allies to stop them.

* EscortMission: Of a sort; at one point during the Opernplatz mission, you have to save a defecting German scientist from execution and cover him from where you are so he can escape to your location by sniping every enemy that's in his way. He's got a gun of his own, he uses it fairly well, and he knows when to take cover. It's surprisingly fun. [[spoiler:He later ends up dying from wounds he took during his escape]].

** The co-op mode Overwatch is all about this - one player is sent in with an SMG and a pistol to accomplish objectives, while the other one stays at the spawn point with a sniper rifle and supports him.



* ImmuneToBullets: Cars, tanks, and APC vehicles. Unless the vehicle has an external fuel tank with a gas cap you can't kill it with your gun. However dynamite or Panzerfaust shots will kill them.
* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: Some Russians carry Lugers in the base game. It's also pretty jarring to be able to find ammo for the Mosin-Nagant on the bodies of German soldiers.

DLC weapons make it even worse, where with the right ones German and Soviet soldiers may now have British .303 or even ''Japanese 7.7mm rounds'' on them.



* MoreDakka: Enemies typically carry a sub-machine gun, semi-automatic rifles, or will man machine gun turrets. The player also has access to these weapons including a sniper version of the semi-automatic rifle.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Want to imitate that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvEUN_iZ8wo scope shot from "Saving Private Ryan"?]] You can!
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Played straight in some areas, subverted in others. Throwing a rock will cause any guard who hears it to go to the source of the noise, but they'll canvass the area in search of an intruder. And while enemies will go back to normal if enough time has passed since they've been alerted, while alerted they move erratically because they know there's a sniper around and don't want you to get a bead on them.

* UniversalAmmunition: Seemingly enforced with pistol and rifle ammo. Any ammo you pick up from dead enemies will always be for the correct weapon. For example what's a Nazi soldier doing with a Japanese, American, and British rifle ammo? The [=SMG=] ammunition is usually for the [=MP-40=], which you can always switch out. The pistol ammo is justified as the Welrod (if you haven't switched to the 1911 or any of the DLC pistols) and the Luger take the same ammo in RealLife, though so does the [=MP-40=].

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: This is played with. Some levels provide unique items like the Panzerfaust Anti Tank rocket or a mounted machinegun. However the game still heavily focuses on the use of the sniper rifle. Tank? Sniper rifle. Truck? Sniper rifle. Launching V2 Rocket?! SNIPER RIFLE! To push the point home, the player is allowed to carry three magazines for his pistol and SMG, while carring over a hundred sniper rifle rounds.
