* HateDumb: The game has been accused of trying to instill prejudice against Arabs. Which doesn't make any sense, as the enemies are clearly Eastern European in both appearance and linguistics, and the [=AKs=] they use in 2.x are of Romanian production.
** Not surprisingly, many with anti-war beliefs dislike it due to the fact that it's openly a military recruitment tool targeted at young people.

* FandomBerserkButton: Because the community attracts a more weapons-savvy playerbase, including (obviously) U.S. military personnel, misconceptions that would be ignored or upheld in other communities will get the poster scolded. The most common posts that attract this are requests for certain weapons, including: the [=MP5=] (which is not used in the depicted units), the [=XM8=] (a canceled project that's going nowhere), [=M9=] pistols for everyone (pistols are rarely issued), knives as weapons (there's been nothing "combat" about knives since WorldWarI), and the [[VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}} Desert]] [[CoolGuns Eagle]] (which is not in use with ''any'' military unit, ''anywhere'' in the world, and is widely regarded as AwesomeButImpractical in real life).
