** A hypodermic needle has this description. "Filled with glowing liquid. If this were a failed [[VideoGame/BioShock underwater utopia]], you wouldn't think twice about jamming this in your arm."
** Oculus Spiff and Go Bro are a reference and bland name product of some well known technological items, such as Oculus Rift and [=GoPro=].

** Yet another of the aforementioned dead soldiers is found clutching a grail next to altar covered with similar-looking chalices, recalling the climax of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''
** Hurk gets heavy on movie references in the last of his DLC missions; for starters, he's stuck in the back of a moving truck with a bomb set on it that will explode if it dips under a certain speed; Ajay outright starts to ask "[[Film/{{Speed}} isn't that the plot to...?]] before Hurk cuts him off by asking him to "be my Creator/{{Keanu|Reeves}}''. He then suggests grabbing a Buzzer to catch up to the truck, finishing with an obligatory "[[Film/{{Predator}} get to da choppa!]]"
