Added DiffLines:

** Grappling an enemy biker and smashing his head in while you're trying to take the lead in a racing segment.


Added DiffLines:

** Your rider will rechamber a shotgun after each shot by [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay twirling the lever and closing it with one hand]].


** The second unlockable character is [[Film/WallStreet Gordon Gekko]], with half the base health compared to default character Dutch but gains 50% more cash and XP in return ''before'' skills and enhancements like Lucky Rabit's Foot, Medal of Valor and Midas Vest come into play. [[{{Catchphrase}} Greed is Good]]. Alas a missed opportunity for a ''Film/BlackRain'' [[Creator/MichaelDouglas reference]] with all the motorcycles and decapitations involved in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* OldSaveBonus: Having ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2'' installed on the same PC unlocks DJ Skully and Hans Volter as character, while unlocking the spiked baseball bat weapon for [=KF2=].

* GuestFighter: [[VideoGame/ShovelKnight Shovel Knight]] himself is a playable character, unlocked by beating the campaign with two riders. Appropriately, he uses a shovel as his main weapon, and refuses to use guns.

** From ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2'', Hans Volter and DJ Skully are playable characters.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the Phantom gang member names is [[VideoGame/FZero "Blue Falcon"]].

Added DiffLines:

* HitboxDissonance: Enemy riders are affected by explosions at a wider range than the player. This makes it possible to drop a pipe bomb at the last second, or aim a grenade launcher at the road in front of you, and blow up rivals lining up to take a swing without being harmed yourself.


* CompetitiveBalance: Weapons have a "Right tool for the right job" dynamic going on:
** Melee weapons are generally effective against other riders. Light melee swings faster but does less damage, heavy melee is slow and strong, long melee has the slow speed and the low damage but over twice the reach.
** Swords can short out energy shields and decapitate unprotected riders, but bounce off helmets, leaving you vulnerable.
** Guns are extremely powerful with good aim, but are limited by ammo.
** Planted explosives are powerful against groups and a OneHitKill on otherwise-tough vehicles, but are even more limited. Pipe bombs can wreak havoc, but are difficult to use correctly.
** Tasers deal no damage, but bypass deflections and shields.
* ContinuingIsPainful: Failing a stage objective imposes a harsh and permanent penalty, [[UnstableEquilibrium compromising your chances of recovering]].



* DifficultySpike: SIGMA territory. Switching weapons is no longer optional if you want to get through their shields in a hurry, the opponents are faster, and the shortcuts are both trickier and more crucial to traverse.



* NoobCave: Reaper territory. No shielded enemies, straightforward tracks, forgiving objectives. You can eventually skip the early parts or eventually the whole thing, but some characters (particularly those who don't benefit from the skill tree) can benefit from a few stages of easy cash.[[labelnote:*]]An advanced start does give you some extra starting money, but not nearly as much as playing through the stages yourself.[[/labelnote]]



* SternChase: According to the Jackal leader you're only twenty minutes behind the assassin at the start of the game. Since you're both going flat-out you get to the opposite coast before closing the distance.



* VillainRespect: The gang leaders will occasionally toss a compliment the player's way, but either threaten the player or insult their ride as they do.

* ViolationOfCommonSense: When sandwiched between riders, it's often smart to plow right into the first available oncoming car. The crash damage and lost time are easier to recover from than a beating from both sides.

Added DiffLines:

* PriceOnTheirHead: The campaign mode is all about getting a $15,000,000 bounty on an assassin.


* ColdHam: The assassin mocks and threatens the player in a slow and soft manner while the words themselves chew the scenery.

* DoesntLikeGuns: Some unlockable characters have the "no guns" attribute, which disables all firearms including the grenade launcher, though it doesn't by itself disable other lethal weapons.

to:

* DoesntLikeGuns: Some unlockable characters have the "no guns" attribute, which disables all firearms including the grenade launcher, though it doesn't by itself disable other lethal weapons. On the plus side, this prevents enemies from having guns as well, but boss battles and missions with ammo pick-ups in them are still a lot harder than usual.
* EarlyGameHell: Because Campaign+ randomizes most of the missions, tough levels can be encountered from the beginning, before you can buy ammo belts or other upgrades, but at least [[HardModePerks those levels keep their powerful items]].


Added DiffLines:

* SchizophrenicDifficulty: The Campaign+ mode outright randomizes the order of most of the missions.
