* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''Back In Action'' and ''Crossfire''. Beyond the real-time[=/=]turn-based debate, the series' fans were less than pleased by the simplification of game mechanics (mecrs aren't hired for a month but permanently, training militia don't require to perform some drill by your mercenaries but is made by paying to upgrade them), the absence of actual cutscenes after ''Back In Action'' intro, and the removal of the feature which allowed to create your own custom merc from scratch.

* TheyJustDidntCare: ''Crossfire'' (''Back In Action'' stand-alone expansion) keeps the same loading screens as its predecessor (you know, the ones with jungle sceneries, or guys wearing tropical camo-suits, or even the ones showing Deidranna herself), despite being set in a cold mountainous Central-Asia {{Qurac}} instead of a tropical BananaRepublic. You even occasionally find propaganda leaflets with Deidranna's portrait and signature, in which the only change is that Arulco has been replaced by Khaanpa in the item's description. Also, ''Crossfire'' worldmap has technically the same size as the ''Back In Action'' one, but the playable are is definitively smaller, so ninety percents of ''Crossfire'' satellite map is a black void.

The clothes marked as "Khanpaa camo" are identical to their Arulco counterpart (camo to desert and forest areas), despite the climate difference (a proper Khanpaa camo would provide camo to snow and desert sceneries).

Added DiffLines:

** While we're speaking about ''Crossfire''[=/=]''Back In Action'' French translation, the items' descriptions contain several spelling mistakes, and some of them are occasionally complete nonsense.

** The fact that this Arulco[=/=]Khanpaa change comes from text files which have only been edited with some "replace everything" feature is especially obvious in the French translation, because French determiners are slightly different depending if they're followed by a word beginning by a vowel or a consonnant.

*** So do the FN P90 if you prefer MoreDakka instead of GunsAkimbo (and if you like either of these, then I'd assume you always fight at night). Some mooks do have them now, so you can easily get a reload.

Some mooks do have them now, so you can easily get a reload. The only disadvantage is that in 1.13 they have long magazines, which means you can't store them in standard AR magazine pouches, so you have to get specialized equipment to carry them or stuff them in your backpack. Though this does make them good for medics, techs, or grenadiers, as it frees up AR magazine pouches for medkits, tech gear, explosives, and grenades/grenade launcher ammo.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Some of the mercs added by the ''Wildfire'' expansion, mostly because of a combination of sub-par voice-acting, bland characterization, and CharacterShilling. Plus some of them replace ''better'' characters in the regular game's roster.

** The CAWS will ruin anyone's shit in vanilla JA2. In 1.13... it just got deadlier.

* CompleteMonster - Deidranna.
** Doreen, the textile exploiter in Drassen and hated by ''everyone'' there for overworking the children (and administering beatings to everyone). In fact, if Gus kills her, he wishes that she'd get back up... so he'd have fun killing her again. The ''children'' wish they could have done it.
** You can also let her go, BUT, you will miss her storeroom key which contains an [=MP5k=] and [[HealingPotion Regen Boosts]] among others, and considering she is quite a JerkAss, she deserves to be [[FreudWasRight pumped full of buckshot]].
*** It is also possible to make Doreen stop her business by persuading her with mercenary with sufficiently high Leadership. Of course, it still can be more satisfying to [[DeadlyEuphemism manually increase the amount of orifices in her anatomy]] and get an individual comment from one of your mercenaries. [[AssholeVictim It's not like anyone in Drassen will blame you for doing that]].
** The terrorists Carmen tasks you to kill. Especially one, who [[ForTheEvulz randomly gassed a parade, causing the deaths of numerous civilians.]] Well, he ''was'' aiming for a politician, but it wasn't like he cared.
** The other one is the guy who killed his own mother when he was a child and as well as after murdering his victim and then proceed to dismember them and using a wood chipper to completely cut up the body. You may be reluctant to kill a few of the 'Terrorists' (most notably Slay and Tiffany, the former among the best mercs in the game - but you only can hire him for a week) but You WILL definitely be very satisfied in killing these 2.
