** On occasion, if you manage to shoot a Nazi before it is alerted, you can kill him in 1-2 shots. This is especially noticeable with [[EliteMooks SS Guards]] who normally require several hits to die as they have about twice the HitPoints of most guard types. Whether this is pure luck or not is ultimately found in the source code for the game.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Guards can open locked doors at will. Normally this could be justified by the guards carrying the keys, except that you rarely find one that drops a key upon death.

** Episode 6, level 10; ''especially'' on ''Death Incarnate'' if you're challenging yourself to get close to OneHundredPercentCompletion. The mutants from Episode 2 are back only for this level, and mix it up with Officers and SS Guards. It can be good fun to clear out all four quadrants of this map, but get ready for the pain your first time through.

* BrutalBonusLevel: The Episode 3 secret level is pretty brutal, but brilliant fun too, while the Episode 4 secret level is practically a death trap unless you know the exact route to the exit (or are just plain crazy!). Episode 6's secret level is fairly easy if you just want to exit quickly, but if you are seeking [[HundredPercentCompletion 100% completion]], it is arguably the hardest map in the entire game.

** Episode 4, level 10; no matter what the difficulty setting you choose, the entire level is swarming with upwards of 50-70+ Officers, that once you fire your gun (even using your knife [remember that this was made in 1992 and there is no such stealth feature to speak of in this game]), all of them will be alerted to your presence, and they ''will'' converge on your position if you stay in one place. Fortunately, there is a secret area that lies directly west from your starting point and takes only a little stroll to get there. This area contains an abundance of ammunition to replenish your guns when you're dealing with those officers. Unfortunately, the entire level is devoid of ''any'' health pickups, making this an absolute struggle for survival. Even worse, a limitation in the game engine causes the officers to temporarily turn invisible, making it hard for you to know where they will come from until you hear their gunshots as well as losing your health in the process, and the only way to solve this is to keep blindly firing until you hear their death cries; this gives this level a really bad case of FakeDifficulty Syndrome. And the exit to this level is far from your starting point, unless you know exactly the right path to get to it.

** [=E3M7=] has a very large one you need to clear to find the secret exit. The entrance to it is also hidden, as there is no key to the locked door that leads to it (there's a pushwall just to the left of the door). [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oyzi4nb.jpg Even with a map,]] you'll still probably get lost a few times.

Added DiffLines:

* RocketTagGameplay: The mooks don't take many shots to go down, and die even faster to the gatling gun, but the player can get easily killed within a few shots. Getting the initiative as well as finding cover or chokepoints is thus imperative.

** Weapons that don't differ except for rate of fire. Accordingly, weapons are arranged in a strict hierarchy, going, from weakest to strongest: knife, pistol, machine gun, and chain gun. There is never any benefit to switching to a weaker weapon.
