These are list of easter eggs & secrets in NOLF. They are all found in missions and specific scenes. The easter eggs are usually comedy relief, or in case of the NOLF 2 easter egg, a nod to the franchise's first game. Some secrets are also comedy relief, engine leftovers (the "extra" Cate Archer) or useful addons for making the next playthrough, or further levels, easier.

Easter EggsEdit

This humorous text refers to the fact that many FPS (first-person shooter) games contain cliché levels, including sections which take place in sewers.

  • In No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way, there is a radio in a building, located in the area where you are tasked to find gas for your snowmobile, in the first Siberian level. The radio plays the intro credits theme from The Operative: No One Lives Forever, as a nod to the game.

Mentions from around the webEdit

  • "One thing I particularly liked was when you go into this sewer and there's a sign on the wall reading 'Mandatory FPS Sewer'. It's little touches like this that make NOLF a joy to play.
  • "The developers aren’t even above mocking the genre itself, with a sign in a sewer even reading 'Mandatory FPS Sewer.' It’s this self-knowing tongue-in-cheek humor that gives No One Lives Forever its decidedly goofy sheen, which only further pushes its rather unique envelope.
  • "I have seen many FPS games but too many of them have devolved into cliched levels – so common a problem that classic spy shooter 'No One Lives Forever' spoofed it with a 'Mandatory FPS Sewer Level' sign, and players have compiled satirical lists of 'favorite video game rooms full of crates'.
  • "The game is populated with throwaway lines and gags. One sign in a sewers says: 'Mandatory FPS sewer.' It just all adds to the knowing wink that the game gives its audience; it understands the clichés and the faults of the genre and makes them work to its advantage.
