Deleted the following from the Predator example:

  • More appropriately, they hoped to use the incredibly reduced temperature to effectively blind it during the capture, assuming (rather poorly) that it ONLY had thermal vision.

Not only is is Natter, it's wrong as well. In Predator 2 Harrigan specifically says "Liquid nitrogen. You're not gonna kill him. You're gonna freeze him."

There is nothing said about using the nitrogen to blind the Predator. Keyes says that his team will be wearing suits that insulate body heat, making them invisible to the Predator's infrared vision.

Deleted the non-backpack information from the Traveller example.

Does this trope cover Abnormal Ammo? Like, say a Paper Master carrying a ream or two "just in case" the occasion presents itself.

If it's carried in a backpack, yes. If it isn't carried in a backpack, no.
