* BatterUp: The baseball bat is incredibly useful for knocking other worms into the water. The home run jingle will play if you knock them off the edge of the screen.

** In the story of Worms 4, one of the levels includes a clock tower with a wire running down to two lamp posts, with a very familiar [=DeLorean=] beneath it. Through unknown circumstances, it's possible for [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture the DeLorean to explode, leaving a pair of fire trails behind.]] The icing on the cake is that after completing the level, as part of the story you and your team travel back in time.

* LargeHam: The Thespian voice set, which is basically worms trained in classical acting. Has gems such as "FEEL THE POINT OF MY RAPIER, YOU SCOUNDREL!" for damaging an enemy worm, "'ZOUNDS! I AM UNDONE!" as a death quote and the randomly said "A DONKEY, A DONKEY, MY KINGDOM FOR A DONKEY!" , a Theatre/RichardIII quote rendered in-context.

* PricelessMingVase: Like everything else, the vase explodes. More specifically, it is a mine-like weapon which yields a very large explosion after 5 seconds and sends shrapnel everywhere. Then the shrapnel explodes too.

** The [=AI=] will also occasionally make some ''very'' strange choices in the usage of their weapons (e.g. Bazooka tunneling instead of hitting the obvious target nearby, or using a bazooka to shoot someone right next to them). In some installments, they cannot use the variety of weapons.

** Alternatively, place the electromagnet when you what the Armageddon to hit. Because the game (well, ''Reloaded'', at least) count Armageddon as a metal item, so you basically can aim the most devastating weapon in the game wherever you want.

** Alternatively, starting with ''Reloaded'' onwards, you can place the electromagnet when near the place that you what want the Armageddon to hit.avoid. Because the game (well, ''Reloaded'', at least) count Armageddon as a metal item, so you basically can aim the most devastating weapon in the game wherever you want.



** The [=AI=] in ''Worms 2'', ''Armageddon'' and ''World Party'' does insane efforts to never hurt a teammate, even if by doing so they kill the only enemy worm left that has only 1 health point. Given the ImprobableAimingSkills with the Bazooka of higher [=AI=] levels, and the final Deathmatch level in Worms 2 (Two worms of yours vs 15 Level 5 ones), this ''needs'' [[AIBreaker to be exploited to win]] (Though sometimes they forget about it and they Fire Punch you and any unlucky teammate). With enough practice, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2r7P_8cpr0 no amount of enemy worms will be enough to beat you]]. They also never take grenade bounce into account - if it does not blow up on your worm when it hits the ground, they will not do that shot. Similarly, when setting up dynamite, they merely walk away instead of jumping away - as a result, they always get caught in the blast.

Added DiffLines:

** The thing about getting a crate shower from a utility crate in the second generation games is that they have an equal chance to spawn any weapon in the game even if they were set to never spawn in that particular scheme. Case in point: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9M5ZbVs9Vo this game]] that was meant to rely heavily on melee weapons winds up a lot shorter than intended due to one player getting an ''Armageddon'' on the very first turn from a crate shower.

%%* BagOfHolding* BagOfHolding: Some games include a Plunder setting, that let worms keep any kind of weapon they had in the last round, while replenishing all their starting weapons.



* NiceHat: In some games you can slap on helmets, beanies, paper bags and ''cement mixers'' on your worms.

Some of the default voice packs actually have worms say "Shoryuken!" or "Hadouken!" when using the former two.



*** One of the voice packs even says "Saiyouken!" when the Dragon Punch is used.


Added DiffLines:

* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: The second generation games have a setting where the last worm in a team drops a donor card when killed. Whoever takes the donor card gets all extra weapons that team had.
