And you were just a scroll away from being fired too...
Oh dear, I do believe I have the vapors.
This page contains content that is not safe for work or other locations with the potential for personal embarrassment.
Such as: Dildos and killing with the dildos in mention.
This page sucks.
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: Rewrite and reorganize this horrible, embarrassing thing. WHY ARE THERE FIVE BILLION YOUTUBE VIDEOS OF SOUND CLIPS?!
To do:

Manhunt 2 is the sequel to Manhunt which features more of the same grotesque action, and is yet another game that pissed off Jack Thompson. Rockstar Vienna originally developed the game before duties were moved over to Rockstar London after the former studio unexpectedly shut down. It's also known for being one of the last Rockstar Games titles to use the RenderWare engine along with the Wii version of Bully: Scholarship Edition, which was released in between all the Manhunt 2 releases.

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.

Memory Usage

MH2PC-FIN MemoryUsage.png

Displays the current memory usage. It's broken on PS2 and PSP, always displaying 0, works as intended on Wii, displaying both MEM1 and MEM2 memory banks, and for some reason both memory banks are listed in the Windows release, but the values in both are identical.

Textbox Boundaries?

MH2WII-FIN GreenRectangles.png

Draws a couple green rectangles on the top of the screen. This seems to only draw correctly on PS2 and Wii, though enabling this also makes the controls not work anymore. If attempted to enable on PC or PSP, the game crashes.

Unused Weapon Animations

Animations For Used Weapons

For the Firearms

Firearms like melee weapons, would have three levels of executions. However these were cut for some reason, but can be put back in.


The Flaregun was going to have three executions, but were cut along with the ones above.

Tranquilizer Gun

The Tranquilizer Gun was also gonna have animations for executions, but got scrapped.

For Unused Weapons

Dildos, Newspaper, And Bottle

Link to video (age-restricted)

You read that right. You could at one time kill people with dildos and newspapers. However, their models for the Dildo and the Milk bottle is not left in the final game so the video uses the pliers and the nightstick. The May 9, 2007 prototype still has the two models left.

Vending Machine and Dumpster

Two environmental executions known as Vending Machine and Dumpster were scrapped. Though they can be brought back although, the animations are unfinished and buggy.

Unused Weapons

With Graphics

  • Blow Torch: Setting people on fire with a torch? Fun! Sadly, only sound files and a HUD icon remains.
  • BlackJack: A leftover from Manhunt. It only has a HUD icon.
  • Camera: It is unknown what this has been used for and it only has a HUD icon.
  • Dildo: While no model remains, its animations, sounds and HUD icon still remain.
  • Acid Bottle: Yet another bottle was originally used. Only the HUD icon and audio remain.
  • Hammer: The hammer from the first game was going to appear according to sound files for its executions from the first game along with an unused HUD icon.
  • Hook: Not the Meat Hook but a hook that would have been a regular weapon. Only has a HUD icon.
  • Money: Money doesn't appear at all in the game. It has a HUD icon. It most likely would have been used as a lure or a shop or store was planned to be in the game.
  • Newspaper: Like the Dildo, the Newspaper still has its animations and a HUD icon.
  • Uzi w/ Flashlight: Would have been just a regular Uzi with a flashlight.


Sounds for the following cut weapons:

Acid Bottle

Blow Torch

The original endings had the player deciding if they wanted to kill Dr. Whyte in her lab, or similar to the final ending, killing Leo in a modified version of the asylum, which can be partly seen in the final version, in Release Therapy's end cutscene.

Filename Oddities

Most Wanted's Original Name

As mentioned in the original level order, Most Wanted has a name change, originally going to be "CIA Trap" suggesting, the CIA was supposed to be the Hunters in place of the Bloodhounds and possibly played an important role which is not a far stretch due to in-game's Pickman's project being based off a CIA's project MKULTRA.

Placeholder Execution Audio

These sound files are repeated multiple times in the soundbank with execution audio.


Remember when YT had a little indifferent face when a video went down? TCRF remembers.
This page or section has one or more broken YouTube links.
Please find an archived version of the video(s) or a suitable replacement.

Female Asylum Inmates

In Awakening, there were going to be female inmates.


The Pervs have a lot of unused lines.

Cut Weapons/Executions

To do:
Add the leftover audios. Some of them has "jump" level exec sounds!
  • Chainsaw_Player/
  • Cleaver/
  • Hammer/
  • Knife/ or Hunt_Knife/
  • Machete/
  • Small_Bat/ or Jack/

A lot of sounds were cut along with scrapped executions with only sound remaining. Some sounds were leftover from the first game.

The first credits theme from the first game is still left in.

Unused Music from a folder named "JumpAtta"

It's very similar to Assassination's soundtrack, but has some differences. In the Wii version, it even has its own death and level end music.
