* AwesomeButImpractical: Yeah! Grenade launchers! Awesome! They even fire two at a time! Except that, unless you're fighting in a wide-open area (in which case you should just be using the mini missile launcher,) the grenades have a very bad habit of hitting any damn thing in the architecture and bouncing right back in your face, and you don't have a choice in firing two grenades at once, which is done with a slight delay, and the grenades are launched off-center, making it the worst weapon to use from behind cover, because either you blow yourself up with it or you stand out of cover just long enough to safely fire it and get shot anyway.

* ButThouMust: Most of the time, when someone asks you to do something you basically have two options: "Yes, I'll do it" and "I'll get back to you on that." Except of course for the times when you have three options: "Yes, I'll do it," "I'll get back to you on that" and "no, I won't do it, but please cause dozens of guards to spawn in and shoot me dead so I learn my lesson."
** Noticeably, it is possible to make the game unwinnable doing this. Harris's mission comes to mind (see MoonLogicPuzzle below).

** As a direct response to this article, the GOG Galaxy release marks this as a secret achievement, where the title and description are not revealed until you actually do it in-game.

** In the ''Veteran Edition'', cheating disables achievements and thus kills at least half the fun of the game.

* WardensAreEvil: Warden Montag is a brief encounter, but he's quite memorable for this trope, also providing ample amounts of [[LargeHam]].

->''[[PrivateMilitaryContractors You are a wandering mercenary]], led to the small town of Tarnhill by rumors of conflict between The Order, a well-equipped [[ReligionOfEvil religious]] [[TheEmpire dictatorship]], and The Front, [[LaResistance the rag tag resistance movement]]. While searching for The Front you decided to take a brief rest somewhere that you thought was safe. The Order acolytes have been rounding up all suspicious characters in the area. Yes, you happen to be one of them. What they didn't expect, though, is the knife you keep concealed for situations just like this one...''

** For a man of medicine, the Front medic is fairly stingy with medical supplies as well, refusing to patch you up unless you've been injured to a certain threshold -- the same threshold that automatically uses healing items, if you let the game handle your healing for you.

* BitterSweetEnding: The "Mediocre" ending. [[spoiler:The Entity, who in this ending is revealed to have been disguising itself as Blackbird all along, is defeated and the Order is dismantled, but because Macil was killed before his research into the Sigil could be completed, the vaccine for TheVirus is never created, and humanity's future is left uncertain.]]
