- Before the Trials of Gnomus DLC was released, Rux's Bazaar could be seen under construction and inaccessible.
- The day before the DLC was released, it was completed but was closed.
- An easter egg on the splitscreen screen shows a Cactus in Rux's Bazaar with the banner saying "Gnome Depot". This beta name is a reference to the retail store Home Depot.
- If the player goes near the shop, they can hear music from Infinity Time being played on a small green radio.
- If the radio is destroyed, the music will stop.
- Outside the sewer, the music can also be heard on the road near the main entrance of the zombie base in Backyard Battleground.
- Rux has sold only one ability twice: the Super Guided Multi Ball.
