Continuity mistake: After the SHIELD agents have rescued the hostages, Steve begins a fight with one of the terrorists who tells him to take off his helmet. Steve takes it off and drops it beside him, leaving it on the floor. After Steve kicks the terrorist and runs over to him, you'll see in the next shot, that the helmet is still right beside him, despite his run.
Continuity mistake: After the Winter Soldier blows up the car he assumed Romanoff was hiding behind, she sneaks up behind him and kicks the gun out of his hand. When he throws her at one of the cars, the gun is on the road to the left of some yellow lines, next to a car. A few shots later, when the Winter Soldier picks up the gun, the gun and car have both moved - the gun is now right on the lines, the car is still the same distance from it.
Continuity mistake: When Steve and Romanoff are lying against the knocked over blinds after dodging the grenade, there is a box shown with some papers in it between them. The first shot shows a white piece of paper sticking furthest out of the box. Next shot, the furthest piece of paper sticking out of the box is now a peach coloured piece of paper.
Continuity mistake: On the bridge when the Winter Soldier attacks; when Steve, Natasha, and Sam are in the car stopped, a Hummer rear ends them and starts to push the car. The first shot of the Winter Soldier shows various cars near him. Then a brief shot of Sam, and back to the Winter Soldier and the various cars have changed drastically.
Continuity mistake: When Captain America takes on the plane outside, the concourse behind him gets shot up and he destroys the plane, which crashes. A little while later the strike team leave the base in convoy along the same concourse that got shot up - there's no damage, and no crashed plane.
Continuity mistake: When Zola's algorithm is deployed and begin acquiring targets, we see a "grid" with the targets chosen. On the right, just above the pictures of the targets, there is a line indicating "targets acquired." Then we see the guns and then a counter indicating the amount of targets acquired, from 210,000 and up, but the next grid we see, in the "targets acquired" line says 133,213 and up. Besides, all the grids have the same pictures, but in different order.
Continuity mistake: There is a sweat stain on Sam's jumper after he finishes jogging with Steve. As he lies against a tree, the stain is around the neck area and some of it is partway down his jumper. When Steve helps him up, the stain has reduced to just sweat around his neck.
Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nick Fury is showing Steve the new Helicarriers, just as Nick says "The satellites can read a terrorist's DNA before he steps outside the spider hole", the two are shown turning around. Nick is shown turning around almost completely and Steve is shown only turning half way. In the next shot, Nick is suddenly turned only half way, facing Steve.
Continuity mistake: After the bus flips, the truck that hit it stops right in front of a Corvette. But when the Winter Soldier is shooting at Romanoff, she takes cover behind a truck. In the wide shot, there is a Monaro, and SUV and a mini-van, but the Corvette is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: When the Winter Soldier approaches the car before throwing the grenades at it, one shot shows a water trail dripping at the front of the car he is hiding behind. A few seconds later, after Romanoff ambushes him, a wide angle is shown as he throws her at the car and the water trail is no longer there.
Continuity mistake: When Steve and Romanoff are escaping the mall, Romanoff notices Agent Rumlow on the opposite escalator. The first person in front of him is a man wearing a green jacket. Romanoff kisses Steve, the shot then cuts to Rumlow noticing the kiss, and a woman in a white jumper has appeared in front of him. Things go back in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: When Baron Wolfgang von Strucker says "We've only scratched the surface and already...", his lips are open. In the next shot, just before he says "there are other facilities doing Hydra's good work around the world", his lips are suddenly closed with no time to do so. This occurs right at the start of the shot and isn't very easy to see, but it is still visible if you look carefully.
Continuity mistake: When Steve, Romanoff and Agent Hill are watching Nick being operated on, Agent Hill is on the left, followed by Romanoff in the middle and Steve on the right. A couple of shots later, as Romanoff says "Don't do this to me Nick", it is now suddenly Agent Hill in the middle and Romanoff on the left, then a few shots later, it goes back to Romanoff being in the middle and Agent Hill being on the left.

Continuity mistake: After Nick has escaped the "cops", he tells the car to give him the wheel. The shot then cuts to an overview shot where Nick is shown speeding through traffic. Just as the shot ends, he is shown about to drive past a bus, but by the next shot, the bus has vanished completely.
Continuity mistake: After Alexander Pierce has finished having a conversation with the World Security Council, he goes over to Nick Fury and starts talking with him. When Pierce says "Nothing some earmarks can't fix", his head is shown to be perfectly forwards and still. Next shot, his head is suddenly shifted to the right a bit.
Continuity mistake: After all of the SHIELD agents have landed on the boat, the various hostages are shown in the kitchen held at gun point by the terrorists. The first shot shows a male hostage tied up at the very back at the room with his head slightly shifted to the right. In a sudden close-up, just before the shot pans over to Agent Sitwell, that same male hostage at the back of the room no longer has his head shifted whatsoever.
Continuity mistake: When Steve is on the boat, and knocks out all the terrorists, one last terrorist points a gun at him before being shot by Rumlow. In the first shot, the terrorist is standing in front of Steve, but by the next shot, he is suddenly standing behind Steve. This has nothing to do with the camera angles.
Continuity mistake: When Sam asks "How do we tell the good guys from the bad guys?" and Steve replies "If they're shooting at you they're bad", Sam unleashes his Falcon wings. This shot shows Steve and Sam to be standing within a few feet of each other, but in the next shot where Sam flies off in his Falcon wings and Steve leaps off the roof, the two are suddenly several meters away from each other.
Continuity mistake: After Steve explains to SHIELD that Hydra is working alongside them, one of the World Security Council members calls Alexander Pierce a smug son of a bitch. Three agents then walk into the room and one of them points a gun at one of the council members. The gun is first aimed at his head, then slightly lowered to his chest, then back to being raised and aimed at the head again.
Continuity mistake: When Steve is talking with Peggy, just as Peggy says "My only regret is that you didn't get to live yours", there are a few vertical line shaped creases on her pillow. The shot then cuts over to Steve, but when the shot cuts back to Peggy, the vertical crease furthest away from Peggy has decreased and the vertical crease in the middle of the creases has slightly increased.
Continuity mistake: When Steve is fighting the terrorist who told him to remove his helmet, the fight begins out in the open. Steve is then shown in one shot kicking the terrorist enough times he falls back into a compartment with loads of weaponry. Then in an instant, they are suddenly back to fighting out in the open and most certainly not in the compartment. This has nothing to do with the angle of the camera.
Continuity mistake: After Steve has taken out all the terrorists guarding the boat, the other SHIELD agents land on the boat in parachutes. As soon as Romanoff lands on the boat, she continues walking with Steve and begins conversation. From the reverse angle, Romanoff is visibly in front of Steve, but from the sudden following shot from the side, she is suddenly standing behind him.
Continuity mistake: When the police ambush Fury, one of the police cars rams Fury's car from behind and its hood is wedged underneath Fury's rear bumper. But when Fury puts the car into drive to flee from the police, the police car has suddenly backed up a few feet. Fury's AI accelerates the car forward but doesn't move the police car that's blocking Fury in from in front either, and this can be seen because the battering ram is still next to the driver side window.

Continuity mistake: Just after Nick has escaped the "cops" before being chased by them again, Nick tells the car AI to initiate vertical takeoff and the shot then cuts to an angle of Nick from the side. On one side of the windscreen are bullet marks from where the gunmen had fired, and no sign of any bullet marks on the other side. The shot cuts to then show Nick shifting over to the driver's seat and by the next shot, there are suddenly bullet marks all around the windscreen and they are much bigger.
Continuity mistake: Just before the Winter Soldier ambushes Steve, Romanoff, Sam and Sitwell in the car, Steve suggests they use Sitwell to bypass the DNA scans and access the Hellicarriers directly. Sitwell then says it is a terrible idea and Steve slightly turns his head to the mirror in the centre of the car, then in the next shot, his head is suddenly turned to Sitwell.
Continuity mistake: After Steve and Romanoff dodge the grenade the terrorist throws at them. Romanoff is shown to be lying against some knocked out blinds that are closed in. In the next shot the blinds are suddenly closed out and her head is now only lying against half of them - the other half of her head is shown lying against the wall. Steve's facial expression also differs between shots, and Romanoff's head moves position.
Continuity mistake: When Romanoff states to Steve a missile is headed for them, she is shown holding her phone with four of her fingers placed around the phone and her thumb placed on the phone's screen. Then in a close-up all four of her fingers and her thumb are now completely placed around the phone. Then back to having four of her fingers around the phone and her thumb on the phone's screen.
Continuity mistake: When Steve approaches his apartment door, his neighbour Kate finishes a conversation with her aunt on the phone. She then puts the phone in the basket containing all of her laundry. The phone is first shown to be a few inches away from the box of washing powder, then it moves a little bit closer to the box, then a few shots later, the phone moves even closer to the box.
Continuity mistake: When Romanoff kicks Agent Sitwell off the rooftop, Sam flies him back on to the roof. After Sitwell lands, he is shown rolling around on the floor and stops with his legs both stretched out. The next shot shows a wide angle of Sam landing back on the roof in his Falcon wings, and Agent Sitwell, still visible in shot, no longer has his legs stretched out.
Continuity mistake: During the beginning of the scene where Steve is ambushed in the elevator, one of the Shield agents is seen removing his shield from his back and placing it to the side. We then see someone hit the emergency stop button for the elevator, after which it cuts back to a wide shot where we see a different agent remove his shield again.
