* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The "Panzer Elite" seem to actually be the [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Waffen-SS]], but that was probably a few UnfortunateImplications too far in the already delicate balancing act of portraying Axis forces as protagonists.

** Also in regards to the British Sniper using an Anti-Tank Rifle, the German Sniper from the first game will [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastically]] quip on using his rifle to shoot a tank if you tried to make him attack one.

** Obersoldaten used to come with their [=LMG34=] for free, and in general their combat effectiveness was once at a state commonly derogatorily likened by players to that of action heroes or [[TheTerminator Terminators]].

** Some players managed to get a head of it to weaponize the system - infantry jumping out of the way of the vehicle do so perpendicularly from where they predict the vehicle will run into them, allowing a sufficiently fast vehicle that can crush them which approaches them on an roughly 30-degree angle [[http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/6394/l46.gif to probably still flatten the infantry trying to move away from it]], or approaching the infantry [[http://cdn.makeagif.com/media/4-03-2015/nZX0Ei.gif while between them and terrain they can't go through]].

* SequelDifficultySpike: The first few moments of singleplayer campaign. In the first game you lead the American's assault into Europe as the game gradually introduce new mechanics and units to you. In [=CoH 2=] however you're starting with Soviet army that was fighting defensive battle against the full brunt of German forces, with a few dozen of infantry at your disposal (and a anti-tank gun or two if you're lucky) to save yourself from hordes of enemy armored vehicles ''all the while'' trying to complete objectives all over the map... While this is nothing new to most RTS players, those who are not used to the genre are in for nasty surprises. Even Isakovich complained in-game that things Soviet Command made them do is nigh-impossible.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ahr6APbE1Y main theme for the British Forces expansion]] probably tops all of the main themes so far. It's just such a beautifully heroic piece.
