* ObviousBeta: Shortly after the first retail release, the GUI was shown to be incomplete, with "[[GameBreakingBug GUI Breaking Bugs]]", especially hitting the server joining features and lacking essential features. There was also a bug where the game didn't saved your progress on the campaign. Although all of them are currently fixed, they still made an impact on the game's first impression when it was released.

** The ''Tarydium Minigun'' replaces the standard gatling seen in the first two games. Instead of bullets, it fires shards of the local {{Phlebotinum}}; the longer you hold down the trigger, the higher the rate of fire. Alt-fire reduces your output but gives you semi-homing shots that impart physical momentum and push the victim around.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: A very unfortunate variation of this trope occurs in the game's setup program - if you watch the files being installed, you will notice that one of the video files is suspiciously named [[spoiler:"malcolmbetrayal"]].
* UpdatedRerelease: ''Unreal Tournament III: '''Black Edition''''' => [=UT3=] + Titan Pack. It's only sold at Steam, and had many Free Weekends, where the people could download the ENTIRE game for free on a determined weekend and tried it.

* DownloadableContent: The PS3 version had, aside of user-created content for the console, two official Bonus Packs, but again, all the content from the first Bonus Pack and the Xbox360 exclusive maps were included in the second pack, the "Titan Pack", which is also the biggest pack to the date. Needless to say, this pack is also available for the PC version.

* DevelopmentGag: One of the scrapped plans for ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'' included the Spider Mines being able to [[PersonalSpaceInvader latch onto a target's head]]. Such idea was rescued for this game's Spidermine Trap, which has the mine itself drilling the dead character's head.


Added DiffLines:

* LimitBreak: When playing with the Titan mutator, an additional meter appears in the GUI, which is filled by fragging people or completing objectives. Filling it and then pressing the designated key allows the player to become a Titan. Titans are powerful warriors with 40 times the regular health and only two weapons: a homing rocket launcher and a rapid-fire shock rifle. This mode lasts until the player is fragged or the meter is filled again, and the player further becomes a Behemoth, who is even more powerful but has a 30-second limit after which they explode like a Redeemer blast, turning back into a normal player. It's worth noting that Titans and Behemoths cannot carry flags, orbs or enter into vehicles.

%%* MightyGlacier: The Darkwalker and the Leviathan. The latter has a nasty laser weapon with a decent rate of fire. The former has four turrets, each with a different weapon, in addition to the main gun used by driver. It can also anchor itself and fire a WaveMotionGun that destroys everything in one hit except cores and other Leviathans.

They're both very, very slow compared to other vehicles, the Leviathan more so than the Darkwalker.

* FragileSpeedster: The Raptor is incredibly fast, can kill enemies on foot in a matter of seconds, and can deal incredible damage to most vehicles with its missiles. It's also only durable enough to survive maybe two [=AVRiL=] rockets, and getting hit with most other weapons sends it spinning out of control. Same with the Manta and the Viper, which are just as fast and is almost tailored specifically towards [[CarFu crushing anyone who isn't in a vehicle]], but has even less armor than the Raptor.

* StanceSystem: Of sorts with the Necris Nemesis. It has three modes which affect its turret and maneuverability: the first raises the turret and increases the rate of fire at the cost of slower mobility; the second is the regular one, and the third locks the turret to point only in the direction the player is facing but comes with an increase in speed and mobility.
