Trivia

Do you know the cheat code "doom"? That cheat code gives you stronger enemies. Interestingly, this is a reference to the 1993 game, "DOOM" by id Software. Id might have tried to sue Epic.

One of the game's weapons is the LFG-2000, which is obviously a spoof of Doom's BFG-9000 weapon. Little Freakin' Gun?
