Show generally

Other mistake: When Clay is engaging a terrorist armored vehicle, his rifle is on safe, he fires a few rounds, then places his rifle on fire, firing a few more rounds.

Show generally

Factual error: Lt Commander Blackburn is a navy guy; Lt Commander is a rank only in the Navy, while in the other armed force the same rank is called Major. However, in most of the action he is wearing a US Army uniform.

Suggested correction: All members of DEVGRU are allowed to use the army ACU and does this often, especially when deployed to the middle east. This is not an error but actually a nice detail from the producers.

Season 2 generally

Question: This season has added the odd effect of a large puff of red smoke/dust whenever someone is shot. It is unrealistic and distracting. Wondering if anyone knows the reason for this change.

Answer: Depending on caliber the body does spray blood from .308 and up.

Answer: Only because it looks cool on screen.
