** The final punchline to "Grenade Spawn" gives us his term for ExplosiveBarrels: [[spoiler:Redeploy Barrels.]]



* NotTheIntendedUse: In "Grenade Spawn", Noob offers a surprisingly clever alternative use for ExplosiveBarrels. Specifically, [[spoiler: to get around Battlefield 4's legendary stinginess with resupplying grenades, he commits suicide by shooting them, letting him respawn with a fresh grenade.]]



** Ammo Guy spends the entirety of "Grenade Spawn" frantically digging through a tiny ammo box in a vain attempt to find a grenade, courtesy of Battlefield 4's infamous stinginess with restocking them.



** The Noob's EOD bot from "They Ruined Battlefield" looks and sounds like WesternAnimation/WallE, courtesy of a FanNickname for said bots.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: Medic casually brags he ran into (and wiped out) a squad of medics who [[{{Nerf}} "didn't get the FAMAS memo"]] with several [[NerfBrand NERF darts]] stuck to his helmet.

* AngryBlackMan: During "[=BF1=] Hype Train", Medic is, rather justifiably, extremely cross with Simon's roleplay of a Confederate soldier when the latter confuses UsefulNotes/WorldWarI with the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar.
--> '''Medic:''' [[TranquilFury *quietly, but full of anger*]] "I'm 'bout to kill a motherfucker."



* BeyondTheImpossible: Amongst absolutely everything else he can do, the Colonel is also, somehow, able to play games of Hardline and [=BF4=] ''simultaneously.''
* BloodyHilarious: Serious gore is normally avoided for most of the series, but a RunningGag in [=SUAV=] involves Recon getting doused in ever increasing quantities of Noob's blood, to Medic and Engineer's endless amusement.



* DynamicEntry: The Colonel has a habit of appearing either by paracute (usually after ''knifing'' an aerial vehicle), or just landing onto things out of the blue.

** He returns in "Rainbow Sixer" to evangelize and proselytize his Battlefield-playing compatriots on the good word of VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege, again to their considerable annoyance.



* HellishCopter: [[spoiler:How the [=BFFs=] die at the end of "Teamspeak".]]



** In "Underwater", a Russian engineer gets a quite literal one upon hearing the warning sirens of a rather unpleasant level feature being triggered by Recon and Engineer. [[spoiler:It's a [[TheCanKickedHim lethal]] tidal wave of [[ToiletHumor raw sewage]].]]



** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GX6IEMf7J8 Waiting on a New Game]] where The Engineer is trying to employ others for a BF4 game. Noob is playing Battlefront, Recon is playing Hardline, and Medic is...playing a dress up game, which leads to this conversation:

to:

--> '''Medic:''' (While wearing a pink dress and tiara) No..No... why would...No!No!
** The core concept of Twitch Tv gets lampooned mercilessly during "Livestreaming", especially when Engineer puts into words just how ridiculous it sounds on paper.
--> '''Engineer:''' Wh-what is goin' on?! WHY ARE PEOPLE PAYING MONEY TO WATCH HIM PLAY VIDEO GAMES?!?
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Quoth Engineer, while spitefully but fruitlessly hosing a clueless Noob with his blowtorch, at the end of "[=DICE=] Camo"...
--> '''Engineer:''' *half-sobbing in utter anger* "I '''hate''' you so much... ''why'' are you always in my squad?!"



* ViewersAreMorons: [=EA's=] attitude in this regard about whether or not their customers would be familiar at all with the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI setting]] of the then-upcoming VideoGame/Battlefield1 is mocked in "[=BF1=] Hype Train" by having Noob and Simon assume it's set during [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar the Civil War]] and dressing up accordingly.



** Engineer uses both carbines and PDWS. From season 2 onwards, he's been equipped with the [=G36C=] as his primary weapon. In "M2 SLAMs", the Noob picks up his gun, which is equipped with a foregrip, laser sight, and KOBRA red dot sight. In "S.U.A.V," his weapon is equipped with a sniper scope and suppressor, despite the fact sniper scopes can't be equipped in [''[=BF4=]'']. In ''[=Hardline=], he equips the [=MP5K=] sub-machine gun. He's also been seen using a variety of rocket launchers, including the [=MK153 SMAW=], [=FiM92 Stinger=], and [=FGM148 Javelin=].

He's been also equipped with the [=SR25 ECC=] in ''[=Hardline=]'', a weapon that is virtually identical to the ''[=BF4=]'' [=MK11 Mod 0=].

** The 'Youtube Gamer' episode from Season 4 is one towards Youtubers uploading/monetizing gameplay videos, and in this case, it's a clear reference to PewDiePie, or 'Pumpkin Pie' as the Noob and Simon mistakenly refer to him as, who gets millions of views view per video and making lots of money from monetizing ads.

* FunWithAcronyms: TUGS (Tactical Unmanned Ground Sensor), SLAM (Selectable Lightweight Attack Munition) and SUAV (Scout Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) all get discussed and form the titles of several episodes.
** Such acronyms play hell with the Noob's comprehension, such as when he thinks the S in TUGS makes it plural, or when he learns what a SLAM is.
--> '''Engineer:''' Yeah, Selectable Lightweight Attack Munitions, d'you have those?
--> '''Noob:''' ...what is he saying?
--> '''Recon:''' *weakly* It... was an acronym and he just described to you what is stands for.



* InsistentTerminology: Noob absolutely refuses to refer to C4 as anything but "Jeep Stuff", a neologism none of his comrades are willing to even entertain. Bizarrely, while he knows what the different classes of primary weapons are (assault rifles, shotguns, etc.), he unerringly refers to the one he's holding as a "big gun" and his pistol is his "little gun".
--> '''Noob:''' ..."What is your favorite gun?" I'd have to say my favorite is *produces an M27* the Big Gun, followed by *draws his M1911* the Little Gun.

** Sadly gone as of "Brokenfield" and the switch to Battlefield 4's new character models.



** From what little we've seen of his room, Recon is a musician who specializes in acoustic guitar.



** Engineer adopts another hilariously racist facsimile of a Chinese accent when he and Medic end up on the opposite team.
--> '''Engineer:''' Oh no, it looks-a rike we are on-a de Chinese-uh side-uh.
--> '''Medic:''' Knock it off.
--> '''Engineer:''' You don't rike-a de accent, roundeyes?

* RaceLift: The Assault was white in the first episode and is black at the end of episode 2. This is yet another InJoke: in ''Battlefield 3'''s beta, the US Assault model was white, but was changed to black in the retail release.

'''Battlefield Friends''' is an animated series by Creator/HankAndJed chronicling the adventures of a group of four players and their [[HilarityEnsues misadventures]] in the video game series, ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield}}''. The humor of the series primarily revolves around [[InJoke In Jokes]] related to ''Battlefield'''s multiplayer, from the difficulty of accurately controlling helicopters to GameBreaker weapons such as the USAS 12 with frag rounds.
