Possible Opponents[]


Before the events of Hotline Miami, Jacket was part of an elite group of soldiers known as the Ghost Wolves, a SpecOps group that fought together in the Hawaiian Conflict, including his friend, Beard, and were renowned for being a four-man army by themselves. A long time after these events, Jacket began receiving cryptic messages on his apartment's answering machine - from 50 Blessings, although Jacket does not know this. With the instructions for what he is to do on his answering machine, he began to don various masks and murdered mobsters in the Russian Mafia in violent and brutal ways, becoming a one-man army and one of Miami's most nightmareish killers.
