Hmmm...
To do:
  • Add the lines from the remaining levels.
  • Grand Theft Auto III and Vice City leftovers; this should have their own section.

Manhunt is a stealth-action and survival horror game, heavily known for its grotesque violence which caused an increase in controversies towards Rockstar Games. It's also notable for reusing some elements from Grand Theft Auto.

An extensive debug menu that can be accessed via modding or cheat device codes.

Unused Weapons

  • Silenced Sniper Rifle: Only the HUD icon remains, but it can be seen in the Wardogs unlockable bonus artwork.
  • Spiked Baseball Bat: Can be accessed with the debug menu and is hidden behind a normally unreachable gate in the level "Doing Time". Uses the same execution animations as the normal bats.
  • Icepick: Can be accessed with the debug menu in the level "Divided They Fall". Uses the same execution animations as the axe.
  • Pipe: Only the HUD icon remains for this one.
  • Cane: Only the HUD icon remains, which only contains the text for the weapon.
  • Piggsy Wire: A piece of wire that was scripted to be used on Piggsy. The HUD icon, animation and model remain since it just uses the normal wire model. No execution audio remains.

Filename Oddities

Born Again's File Name

In Manhunt's files, the files for "Born Again" are called "Jury Turf", which references the scrapped gang called "The Jury", which might have been the first hunter group to be encountered first or might have taken the role of the Hoods originally before being replaced.

Time 2 Die's Name

The file's the folder is called "WEASEL" instead of bonus 4 suggesting it was supposed to be part of the main part of the story which has more evidence including this is the only bonus mission that has unique music, has Starkweather directing you and it starts you off at front of the end of "Road to Ruin's" entrance gate which suggests this was the final mission for the hood's chapter.

Church 2's Level Order

The files only mention Church 2 suggesting there was meant to have a church one though it is unknown what it would look like.

Oddities

Brawl Game's Image

In the thumbnail for Brawl Game, looking at the left theirs a Smiley's corpse suggesting they were supposed to appear in this bonus minigame.

Multiplayer

There was going to be a multiplayer feature in Manhunt, it goes cut for unknown reasons. A Multiplayer menu text can be found in various language text files.
