  • The title of this DLC is a reference to Fort Knox in the U.S., which is synonymous with an impregnable fortress or building.
  • In The Secret Armory of General Knoxx logo there is a small 61 in the lower-right corner. This represents the maximum reachable level of this DLC.
  • The level increase, by the unusual number of eleven levels, is a reference to the potentiometer dials of Nigel Tufnel's guitar amplifier in the mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap, apparently to give it "that extra push over the cliff".


This is section of preview screenshots and videos, until they can be better integrated into their respective topics.
