- Memetic Mutation: Screaming "Allahu Akbar!" when playing as the Insurgents, or just roleplaying a stereotypical Middle Eastern insurgent/terrorist in general.
- For emphasis, the second most-subscribed mod on Insurgency's workshop adds shouts of "Allahu akbar!" when throwing explosives or molotovs.
- Scrappy Mechanic: The lack of killcam means not only you cannot figure out who killed you, but it also makes difficult to know who is cheating or using glitches, unless you're playing in a professional match.
- Scrappy Weapon: Shotguns. While they avert Short-Range Shotgun, and are reasonably effective against unarmored opponents, they deal pitiful amounts of damage against armor requiring up to three shots to kill a heavily armored foe. The shotgun's slow firing rate also means you're unlikely to fire more than one shot before your target kills you. Compare this to the M16 or AKM, which can fire in full auto with high accuracy and can kill a heavily armoured enemy with a single AP round to the chest.
