Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: All but one of the guns in the game actually exists, and the secret German superweapon actually did have plans drawn for it, though it was never manufactured due to the obscene costs. That's a theme for the whole series, in fact: all the German WunderWaffen actually had existed as concepts, this game just depicts their being actually fielded.

* {{Mooks}}: The various Nazi troops that are part of the Afrika Corps. The generic troops are little more then sniper fodder with more elite troops providing more of a challenge.

* {{Mooks}}: The various Nazi troops that are part of the Afrika Corps. The generic troops are little more then sniper fodder with more elite troops providing more of a challenge. The DLCs introduce a specialist Wermacht formation responsible for field-testing new weapons and killing Allied officers, and these soldiers are probably the toughest mooks in the series so far. They're not immune to bullets, but they carry all manner of explosives and use shoulder-mount rockets to flush you out.

* GroinAttack: Groin shots are a lethal hit and legitimate shot for killing enemy troops. If you use focus mode the game will give you a slo-mo of the carnage. And yes you can shoot Hitler in the nuts and if he has two, it's a body double. In one mission you can shoot '''8''' Nazi soldiers standing at attention in the balls ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4XSwqNCDnc with one bullet]]''.

* NotSoDifferent: A rare example which isn't built upon in the game. [[spoiler: Vahlen, the Wunderwaffe engineer, revels in war, and accuses Karl of the same attitude. Karl responds that he and Vahlen are ''not'' the same, and when he is about to kill Vahlen, Karl with disgust remarks that he is nothing like him.
--> '''Karl Fairburne'': [[spoiler:I'm not like you. I remember who I kill.]]

* ColdSniper: The player character and enemy snipers are ever the cold and efficient professionals of their trade.

to:

* ColdSniper: The player character Karl Fairburne, as always, is extremely unemotional and enemy cold-blooded, almost behaving like a robot. [[spoiler: Except for when his friend Brauer gets blown up by a Tiger tank, which is the only time in the entire series he displays emotion]]. Likewise, the German snipers are ever you encounter throughout the cold and efficient professionals of their trade. game do not emote or say anything.



* HollywoodSilencer: The Welrod is again a small chuff rather then the door slam it has in reality.

to:

* HollywoodSilencer: The Welrod is again a small chuff rather then the door slam it has in reality. DLC gives you a suppressed semi-automatic, the HDM, which for some reason is as silent as the Welrod, despite being semi-automatic and therefore having a noisy cycle.



* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: The Arisaka, obtainable by DLC, is a ''Japanese'' rifle, and therefore very much out of place in the game, especially since the Japanese never reached Africa during the war.



* NotSoDifferent: The Wunderwaffe engineer revels in war, and accuses Karl of having the same attitude. Karl spits it back in his face, and when it's time to kill the engineer Karl's expression looks more like jaded disgust than anything else.[[note]]No, this was never foreshadowed or built upon; it's all loaded into the last ten minutes of the game[[/note]]

* SniperScopeSway: Player heart rate, position, and whether you are using the focus mode or not can cause a player's scope to sway. Use of focus mode temporarily eliminates or greatly reduces the effect, and resting the rifle on a surface can also reduce it.

Use of focus mode temporarily eliminates or greatly reduces the effect, and resting the rifle on a surface can also reduce it. Different rifles also have different amounts of scope wobble, and modifications to the rifle can either improve it or make it worse.
