* 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.

** 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]].

** Engineer uses carbines, notably the [=G36C=] in ''[=BF3=]'' and ''Hardline'', and the Galil ACE 21 in ''[=BF4=]''. The [=MK153 SMAW=] is his default rocket launcher.
** Medic uses assault rifles, namely the AEK-971 or the Galil ACE 23 in ''[=BF4=]''.
** Noob uses light machine guns ([[ATeamFiring ineffectively]]), mostly seen with the [=M249 SAW=] and sometimes, the [=Ultimax 100 MK5=] in ''[=BF4=]'' which he refers to as 'The Big Gun' (despite the Ultimax using a 30-round magazine in-game, and being no larger than a normal assault rifle).
** Recon uses sniper rifles, most commonly seen using the [=SV-98=] and sometimes, the [=CS/LR-4=] in ''[=BF4=]''.
** The Colonel only uses his signature knife (later equipped with a ''bipod'', [[spoiler:and then a bipod FOR the bipod]]) to great effect, [[RealityWarper game mechanics be damned]].

** 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:
--> '''Engineer:''' Wait...You ain't playing Call of Duty, are ya?
--> '''Medic:''' (While wearing a pink dress and tiara) No..why would...No!

While Seasons 1 - 3 takes place in ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'', they eventually they move onto ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 4}}'' in Season 4, where the group tackles the game's notoriously buggy beginnings, to other common gameplay related issues like frequently stuck vehicles, more overpowered weapons and even try out some Easter Eggs. Currently as of September 2015, Season 5 of ''Battlefield Friends'' is ongoing, the crew having entered the 'cops-n-robbers' world of ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield Hardline}}'', the episodes switching back and forth between ''[=BF4=]'' and ''Hardline'' bi-weekly.
