Added DiffLines:

* ContinuitySnarl: Officially, this game is a prequel to the subsequent ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', except that literally none of the lore from this game matches up with the lore from its supposed sequel. Most notably, ''The New Order'' has absolutely no "magical" elements at all, and the concepts of Veil energy and the Thule are completely absent -- instead, Deathshead has reverse-engineered his super-science from ancient Jewish technology. They come off more as alternate continuities than anything else.

* GatlingGood: To date, the only ''Wolfenstein'' game without such weapon in the SP arsenal.
** It can be argued that the Particle Cannon is in fact this weapon dressed up like a hand-held WaveMotionGun. The rotating capacitors can conjure up memories of rotating barrels. The functionality as a heavy machine gun is similar too.

Added DiffLines:

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Plays a role in a number of situations:
** The quickest way to defeat a Heavy Trooper is by shooting the glowing blue armor vents on each shoulder, followed by the emergency vent which then extends from his back.
** The Drache Trooper is vulnerable to being shot in his flamethrower tanks.
** The Geist Queen is vulnerable to attacks on her egg sacs.
** Several boss battles require BJ to target equipment components in order to destroy a machine and/or cause said machine to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard backfire on its creators.]]

* SomeKindOfForceField: Aside of the Veil shield, cast by both Blazkowicz and the Scribes, some areas are protected by a forcefield. They normally require the player to use the Empower ability to be destroyed.

* SomeKindOfForceField: Aside of While they don't actually try to poke the Veil shield, cast force field ([[ShootingSuperman except by both Blazkowicz and the Scribes, some areas are shooting it]]) it's pretty much a given one or more mooks will say a variation of "He's protected by a forcefield. They normally require the player to use the Empower ability to be destroyed.some kind of shield!" whenever BJ has Shield active.

* AttackReflector: The aptly named Reflective Crystal upgrade for BJ's Shield power causes incoming fire to be redirected back at the shooter.



* DeflectorShields: One of the Veil powers BJ gains through the Thule medallion is the ability to project a force field around himself. Scribes have a similar ability to project force fields around either themselves or multiple fellow enemies;[[note]]just not both at the same time[[/note]] additionally, the Nazis also make use of Veil-powered devices which project force fields for purposes such as barricading doorways or providing instant cover for troops in open areas. In all iterations, the force fields are impenetrable to conventional small arms fire.



* DungeonShop: BJ encounters a black marketeer just before boarding the zeppelin, who takes time out from looting the (heavily defended) hangar to sell him whatever he needs.

to:

* DungeonShop: BJ encounters Black Market locations are prolific throughout Isenstadt, so much so that it's not uncommon for a black marketeer merchant to be just before boarding around the zeppelin, corner from enemy patrols. Special mention goes to the IntrepidMerchant who takes time out managed to sneak his way into the zeppelin hangar - the most restricted and heavily defended area of the Airfield level - and is quite happy to take a moment from looting the (heavily defended) hangar German supplies to sell him whatever he needs.some to BJ.


Added DiffLines:

* ForceFieldDoor: Appear with increasing frequency once the Veil has been introduced. Figuring out how to deactivate them - often from the opposite side of the door as the on/off switch - is a common gameplay element.


Added DiffLines:

* ShieldBash: A variation. The Reactive Crystal upgrade to the Shield power turns it into a one hit kill melee attack for most unarmored enemies - BJ simply has to walk up to them with the Shield active and they will die on contact with it.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerNullifier: The Veil Inhibitors, which block BJ's access to his Veil powers within a certain radius of them (and cause BJ's vision to become black-and-white as a side effect) but are easily destroyed by gunfire or melee attacks.

* AxCrazy: The Veil Assassins. The horrific experiments that empowered them with the ability to use the veil at will has also completely destroyed their mind outside of the desire to sadistically kill anyone they come across.

* AbandonedHospital: The Hospital mission is set in a hospital that, while not ''quite'' abandoned, fits the look quite well. It's been commandeered by the Nazis, and by the time you get there, the place has been ransacked, and most of the patients and staff have been either abducted to serve as test subjects for their sick medical experiments or eviscerated by the invisible, AxeCrazy assassins that prowl the hallways.

**** It's interesting to note that the otherwise superior 1946 Ubersoldaten models featured in ''WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' can only be defeated by destroying that very same breathing pump, forcing the beast to remove its armored faceplate.

** AwesomeButImpractical: Despite all of this, or perhaps because of it, its design is woefully wasteful, seemingly [[RuleOfCool for aesthetics.]] Half the aircraft's weight must be the massive metal doors everywhere. The other half is composed by the tons of swastikas. You could sew together another Zeppelin from all the Nazi flags it carries. Still, it's not as if you could mount [[spoiler:the Thule portal]] on anything ''smaller...''

** The city of Isenstadt ''itself'' looks very different as seen from the Zepellin, through the Veil. It is full of what appear to be massive {{Ley Line}}s in a pattern not unlike a crater.
