** All but one of the guns in the game actually exists, though at least one of them [[ImproperlyPlacesFirearms was never seen in the Sahara Desert during the war]] (or possibly ''ever'').
** The secret German superweapon actually did have plans drawn for it, though it was never manufactured due to the obscene costs.

* 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.

Not that they didn't ''want'' to, it's just that they had all those pesky British and Indians in the way...

DLC:[=DLC=]:



* {{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.

* AnachronismStew: The Gewehr 43 used by both German snipers and the player wasn't developed until 1943, a full year after the timeframe for the game. The M1 Grease Gun and [=MP44=] usable through DownloadableContent weren't in common use until 1944.
* ArrowCam: Just like the previous game you get to follow the bullet as it smashes into your enemies and destroys internal organs and bones. Only this time there is increased level of detail such as new muscle and circulatory system layers and inclusion of dynamic bone destruction from bullet impact. Another new addition is a kill cam view for vehicles which includes the same level of detail as the shots on the enemy infantry.

** In one mission you can shoot '''4''' Nazi soldiers standing at attention in the balls ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4XSwqNCDnc with one bullet]]'' Earlier in the same mission, you can get three men crouching at the firing range with the same trick.



* NoScope: The player can shoot enemies with the sniper rifle without use of the scope. While not as accurate it can be handy in pinch.
