- Numerous action scenes: shooting colt and other classic weapons, knife throwing, brawling, using sound diversions, dynamite and powder barrels, rattlesnakes, chemicals, lures, seduction, blinding, even a surprisingly mischievous monkey, and much more…

- Environmental interactions such as: building crossings, saddling and riding horses, sabotaging installations, retrieving equipment, crawling, climbing, jumping on horses, unlocking doors, hiding, stealth, pushing or destroying obstacles, etc…
