Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryAlphabet: In the base, un-modified version of ''Murder'', all of the players' in-game names are taken from the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_phonetic_alphabet NATO phonetic alphabet]].

Added DiffLines:

* WordSaladHumor: The Magnum's AltText in the Source weapon wheel is simply ''"The ice-cream."'' This has no point to anything (especially since Bystanders would have no real reason to check the wheel as the Magnum would be the only weapon in their inventory), but it's there for RuleOfFunny.


* VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: Decided to shoot a potentially innocent bystander for no reason? You'll drop your gun, be slowed down and almost blinded for thirty seconds, leaving you open to a quick stab.

In each round, a single Murderer spawns. He is equipped with a knife that will kill anyone he smacks it with in a single hit, and is completely silent. His objective is to kill everyone else.

And by everyone else, we mean [[ControllableHelplessness a bunch of completely defensless Bystanders]] that must explore the map in search of different items called clues that glow green. When a number of clues are gathered, the Bystander who collected them is given a [[OneHitKill Magnum]] that will kill the Murderer in one shot -- but has a long reload time, and only fires ''one shot''. A Bystander will also spawn with one at the beginning of the round, and his decision to brandish it or save it can either lure the murderer to him, getting a good shot, or forcing the murderer to be more careful around him. If he dies, then the gun drops -- if another Bystander can pick it up, he'll be armed.

If a Bystander with a gun shoots another innocent Bystander, he'll be severely incapacitated for a good 30 seconds, at which point he's ripe for a shanking. Be warned, however, that everyone is given codenames (which can be customized per server) and has a radial voice menu that can say jokes, sad musings, questions, and screams of terror.

** The knife is short range, requiring the Murderer to get up close and personal, and while it can be thrown, once it's thrown, the murderer needs to go pick it back up, leaving him open to be shot. Skilled players can dodge the knife with relative ease.

* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Played with. If the knife actually ''hits'' it's an instant kill. Experienced players, on the other hand, can dodge fairly easily.

The game mode can be found for free in Garry's Mod 13. See also ''Melonbomber'', another gamemode made by the same user. Compare and contrast ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'', which is very similar, and slightly more popular.

The game has a SpiritualSuccessor in the form of ''Homicide'', a game mode for Garry's Mod which takes many ideas from this game and adds a new twist to it.

* GlassCannon: The murderer. They can sprint, and their knife (plus the lack of armed civilians aside from one gunman) means they will be able to kill large numbers of people in a short period of time. However, they are as vulnerable as the other players and a single gunshot will kill them.

Added DiffLines:

* NonActionGuy: Anyone who spawns without a gun is entirely helpless, unless they are able to loot a gun off the corpse of whoever had one first, or pick up enough props. Some mods do change this slightly by allowing Bystanders to hit back, although typically damage is low and the murderer will kill them after weathering a couple of hits.
