In the level "Graveyard Shift", Cash uses a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. In the cut-scene that ends the level, Cash is carrying a pump-action military-style shotgun. See more

After the credits finish rolling, a random segment of a children's television show plays briefly. Supposedly, this is to give the impression that Starkweather taped over the majority of the children's show with the snuff film footage of Cash's killings. See more
