  • The .44 Magnum "Cannon" has a prestige skin named, Empire State, which may be a reference to the early draft of Dirty Harry where the locale was New York City (New York is colloquially known as the Empire State), instead of San Francisco. The flavor text for the weapon also references the eponymous character: "guaranteed to get you out of dirty and/or hairy situations."

Far Cry (Film)

    • This is itself a daisy-chain reference to the famous battle cry of Klingon warriors from the Star Trek franchise.
  • A few of Hurk's boxes contains "Oros Shit".

Miami Vice

  • The description for the A-99 noes that it "did a couple of seasons of a Miami crime TV drama in the 80s." This is a reference to the use of the Interdynamic KG-99, a gun almost identical to the in-game TEC-9, appearing in the TV series Miami Vice from 1984-1989.

Pee Tape

  • Willis Huntley's mission Patriot Acts repeatedly references the infamous rumor that the Russian government has a tape in which two prostitutes urinate on a hotel bed that Barack and Michelle Obama once slept in, while future President Donald Trump watches, and are using it to blackmail him.
    • In Far Cry's universe, such a tape "exists", and is being kept in an underground in Montana by a Russian intelligence agent. Huntley will explain that the tape, "if released, could make [the 'Big Man'] look bad to the public".
    • He will also use suggestive phrases (such as "the bed has been wet"), and telling the deputy they are not to assassinate their target, because, "as ironic as this may sound, this is not wetwork".

  • The name of Whitetail Militia's base, "Wolf Den," is the radio callsign used by Rambo's support unit.
  • The scene where Staci Pratt shoots up the radio equipment in Jacob Seed's bunker while yelling is also a reference the final scene, where Rambo uses his M60 to shoot up a radio room while doing the same.
  • The flavor text of the Recurve Bow states that: "This bow is the non-firearm weapon of choice for highly skilled Green Berets from Vietnam."
    • This is a little odd since Rambo is famous for using compound bows, particularly the custom design based on a Hoyt Archery Spectre that was used in First Blood Part II and Rambo III.

Raving Rabbids

  • A Raving Rabbids bobblehead can be placed in cars as a decoration.
  • A Rabbids T-shirt can be purchased in clothing stores.

  • The MedKit mentions the ever-present issue in American politics about private vs. public health care: "Healthcare in a box. You decide whether this is mandatory or optional."
  • The P226 states that: "It's about as American as Swiss Cheese," referencing how the P226 is not actually an American design, but rather a European design by the German company Sig Sauer.
    • The prestige variant, the Amendment 2 takes this a step further into the ridiculous: "This P226 is as American as George Washington eating a deep-fried bald eagle."
  • The RPG-7 makes fun of people who wait outside stores for the latest products at midnight releases: "No need to camp outside of a store for a midnight launch," with the use of the word "launch" serving as a double entendre.
  • The SA-50 description makes a joke about priapism (hours-long, agonisingly painful erections that can lead to gangrene due to pooled blood), a notorious side-effect of male enhancement pills: "If it does that for more than 4 hours, call a doctor."
  • The SBS references the trend of "shotgun" weddings: "It's also been part of a couple quick weddings."
  • The Socket Pipe references the board game Clue (or Cluedo in the UK): "One of six possible murder weapons you'd find in a mansion. 'Whodunit?' is the real question," with 'Whodunit?' being the tagline of the board game and the "lead piping" being one of the possible weapons.
  • The prestige variant of the Vector .45 makes reference to the 1986 Timbuk 3 song The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades: "This Vector .45 ACP is so bright you gotta wear shades", with the 80s song era matching the arcade motif of the skin.
