!!'''This game contains examples of:'''
* BottomlessMagazines: None of the guns require reloading but these can run out of ammo. Played straight with the standard pistol, which is infinite.
* {{Cyborg}}
* DefeatEqualsExplosion: All enemies explode when defeated. Justified since they're all half-cyborgs. Subverted with Buck who will simply fall to the ground deceased even if the cause of his dead is a nuclear explosion.
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: The Sewers levels and The Herd Nest.
* GameOverMan: The game over screen shows a picture of the Herd Queen with the words "Game Over"
* HandCannon: The third obtainable gun in the game.
* HeroicMute: Buck says "Cool!" or "Yeah!" when picking up items, but that's about it.
* MissionControl: The Resistance sends Buck messages when he's on missions.
* MoreDakka: The fifth obtainable gun is a submachine gun with an extremely high firing rate.
* MouseWorld
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The single player brings us a cyborg bee having dogfights with mutant insects. Multiplayer brings us cyborg bees with rocket launchers playing football.
* OhCrap: The Herd catches you off-guard a few times through out the game.
* ShootOutTheLock: Several locked doors are powered by very vulnerable generators.
* SuperDrowningSkills: Justified since Buck is an insect. You will start drowning real fast the moment you touch water but you can still get out if you press A repeatedly.
* TimedMission: Happens four times in the game.
** Return Fire: The Herd sends a bombing squad to The Resistance HQ and plants a bomb on its facilities. You must reach the HQ, destroy all enemies before they can do the same with the place and take the bomb to a safe location before it detonates.
** Nuke Tower: The tower begins the countdown for launching once you reach its location. You have to destroy all of its generators to deactivate it while hordes of wasps try to stop you.
** Sterilization: You're tasked with activating a bomb then proceed to make a run for it. However, the Herd locates the bomb first and activates it in an attempt to blow you up alongside them. You have little more than two minutes to complete the level.
** Core Nuke: Once again, you must plant a bomb and escape, no surprises this time... Except that the bomb must be planted inside the enemy nest.
