Killing Floor

In the game Killing Floor, there is a medic that is equipped with a Swiss syringe that allows him to inject a dosage of Kirsch or maybe heroin produced by Swiss pharmaceutical companies right into the veins of the injured, making them forget their pain and battle zombies with more drug-enduced enthusiasm:

While I very much appreciate the choice of Swiss drugs for this, we should never forget that other countries also produce nice things. Who wouldn’t like Hungarian Tokaj or some wonderful Somalian Khat? So I’d understand if residents of other countries felt treated unfairly by developer Tripwire Interactive’s singling out of the Swiss here and giving them such a proud place in the game.

Silent Hill Book of Memories

Shame on developer WayForward, a household name for anyone who has ever owned any handheld game systems, for introducing a Swiss flag into the world of Silent Hill:

See it there in the lower right corner, next to a wrench and some bullets? Does that mean a box of Swiss milk chocolate is supposed to go on your tool belt when dealing with monster infestations? I’m confused.

+RED Energy Drink

An American company makes energy drinks with the Swiss flag as part of their logo:

I asked them why that is but have yet to hear back. If they tried to sell these in Switzerland, they’d have to change the logo, since only Swiss products may carry the Swiss flag.

Shadow Warrior Classic Redux

The developers of Shadow Warrior Classic Redux made a mistake: They gave Lo Wang an Asian name, perhaps Chinese, when he is clearly Swiss. How else do you explain that his health increasees every time he eats a Swiss diplomat’s suitcase?

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

In this game, you play a group a soldiers trying to extract Swiss drug money from Bolivia. The money is in containers like this:


They made them red so they’re easier to spot and put Swiss flags on them so you don’t accidentally take some other country’s drug money. Thanks, Mack, for the video I stole this screenshot from.

The Wild Eight

In this cold and dark survival game, it sure is useful that you can pick up briefcases full of ready-made Swiss fondue, here even hotkeyed to key number 5:


Left 4 Dead 2

It took a while for me to notice: Left 4 Dead 2 has Swiss strongboxes in many levels, but disappointingly they’re filled with medical items instead of laundered money:


The amateurs at Valve have never been invited to a Swiss home, I guess, where after the evening’s competitive yodeling one usually retreats to the chalet’s upper floor to peruse the contents of the wall-mounted strongboxes, making sure none of the clock parts or hidden Jewish gold was stolen while one was outside.


Another game, this time it’s F.E.A.R.:


I guess it can’t hurt to have some Swiss chocolate around when there are paranormal things happening.

The sad part is that they repeated their mistake with F.E.A.R. 2, the medkits there look the same. Thanks to Mack for playing this in his rant about the games industry, I never played the game.

Modern Warfare 2

This has a Swiss flag inside a circle on the back of an ambulance:


For a big publisher? Shame on you.


The game Subnautica has a medical kit fabricator with a little Swiss flag on it:


And there is also a piece of equipment called “First Aid Kit” whose icon shows a Swiss suitcase full of money or chocolate or something:


When a first aid kit is enjoying its day on the beach, it looks like a little book documenting the history of the Red Cross:


But while it is being fabricated, it’s more like a block of Swiss chocolate:


For comparison, here is what an actual Swiss military choclate ration looks like:
