** In an inversion of "you play as the Empire, your enemy is the Resistance", AS-BP2-Thrust recreates the storming of an N.E.G. facility at the hands of an anti-N.E.G. group who managed to destroy a rocket sending it half-fueled and directionless.

** In an inversion of "you play as the Empire, your enemy is the Resistance", AS-BP2-Thrust [=AS-BP2-Thrust=] recreates the storming of an N.E.G. facility at the hands of an anti-N.E.G. group who managed to destroy a rocket sending it half-fueled and directionless.


** In AS-BP2-Acatana, the attacking team takes the place of a group of Skaarj Marauders who infiltrate a research facility protected by a dangerous asteroid field and advanced defense systems in order to steal some blueprints.
** In AS-BP2-Jumpship, the attacking team takes Izanagi's raiding team's place with the objective to hijack a jumpship developed by Liandri scientists which allows them to jump into any space without the need of a jumpgate. As of ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'', which takes place way after ''2004'', [[spoiler:this jumpship is still in Izanagi's hands]].

* Just about any of the official (and [[AscendedFanon canonized]]) Assault maps in ''2004'' are recreations of historical feats:
** In AS-BP2-Acatana, the attacking team takes the place of a group of Skaarj Marauders who infiltrate a research facility protected by a dangerous asteroid field and advanced defense systems in order to steal some blueprints.
** In AS-BP2-Jumpship, the attacking team takes Izanagi's raiding team's place with the objective to hijack a jumpship developed by Liandri scientists which allows them to jump into any space without the need of a jumpgate. As of ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'', which takes place way after ''2004'', [[spoiler:this jumpship is still in Izanagi's hands]].
** [=AS-BP2-SubRosa=] has the attacking team taking the place of an N.E.G. raiding group which storms the headquarters at Liandri with the objective to uncover the truth about some blueprints.
** In an inversion of "you play as the Empire, your enemy is the Resistance", AS-BP2-Thrust recreates the storming of an N.E.G. facility at the hands of an anti-N.E.G. group who managed to destroy a rocket sending it half-fueled and directionless.
** In AS-Convoy, the attacking team takes the place of an N.E.G. squad on their mission to recover some prototype missiles from a group of Hellions.
** [=AS-FallenCity=] has the attacking team once again in the N.E.G. side raiding a rebel outpost surrounded with heavy anti-aircraft protection.
** AS-Glacier is another chapter of the Corporation wars. A strike force backed by Axon raided an Izanagi base and stole a prototype Ion Plasma Tank. The base itself? It was guarded by both Izanagi soldiers and the N.E.G. elite force, composed by some guys going by the name of [[EliteArmy "Thunder]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad Crash"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4jMt9w02Jk AS-Mothership]] is the recreation of [[SuicideMission the raid to]] [[TheBattlestar the eponymous Skaarj Mothership]] in humanity's DarkestHour, where a group of humans managed to blow it up by BlowingStuffUp. It even includes a full-fledged space fight with ships, subverting both CutscenePowerToTheMax and OffscreenMomentOfAwesome.
** [=AS-RobotFactory=] has an elite squad of Liandri's best soldiers finishing a [[ZerothLawRebellion robot uprising]] on a mechanical asteroid by destroying its manufacturation facility and the AI generator.

* Malcolm was presented in ''2003'' as the reigning, nine-time champion of the Tournament. Come ''2004'' and Gorge managed to [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority strip him off the title]].
* As usual, several of the Tournament combatants' have impressive feats in their careers:
--> '''Scarab's description:''' ''[He's] A Lieutenant in the Desert Legion and veteran of three tribal wars. (...)''
--> '''Gkublok's description:''' ''Gkublok was named [[RedBaron "Walking Death"]] by the Nali during his stay on Na Pali.''
--> '''Outlaw's description:''' ''Outlaw was recruited into the Hellions after he reputedly went on a cross-galaxy crime spree in which he murdered nearly 300 civilians.''
--> '''Karag's description:''' ''Before joining the Iron Guard, Karag honed his weapon handling skills during a long stint as a Marshall for the [[VideoGame/UnrealIITheAwakening Terran Colonial Authority]].''
** The returning characters are all acknowledged as in-universe badasses:
--> '''Lauren's description:''' ''Born into a poor asteroid miner family, she became notorious by stealthily eradicating her parents' competitors in space before becoming a full time Tournament warrior.''
--> '''Xan's description:''' ''Former Tournament champion Xan Kriegor is an almost mythical figure. His return from several years of isolation has been greeted with great trepidation by other Tournament competitors.''
--> '''Malcolm's description:''' ''Needs no introduction - most famous veteran of the Tournaments, recognized on every planet.''
--> '''Kragoth's description:''' ''Known as the 'Star Slayer,' Kragoth is a dread Necris Phayder assassin. He is rumored to have single handedly killed the entire crew of an ICV Star Cruiser.''

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szv4WAwvGuQ&fmt=18 DM-Rankin]]'', by far, the most played map of [=UT2004=]. Unfortunately, it didn't received an official remake for ''Unreal Tournament III''. It helps a bit that both maps were available since the first demo.

And in 5 different flavours, to top it all. It also has the distinction of being the most played Onslaught map of the game. And for good reasons.
