Common Tropes in Quake and custom maps/mods

Two terrible links as hint what this is about:

Not sure if normal common gameplay setups count too, eg monster closets, spawning in the player's back, repopulating the map before sending the player to backtrack etc

  • A horde of zombies right before the player gets the grenade launcher
  • Moving platform over lava
  • Seeing a pickup behind bars or otherwise unreachable at the moment
  • Red demon face texture shooting nails
  • Putting stuff/secret behind the player at his spawnpoint

Add more and/or write more descriptive descriptions!
