Doing Time[edit | edit source]

Kill The Rabbit[edit | edit source]

  • Originally named Pool of Tears.
  • The Cerberus that come out behind the trucks in the sniper section were originally equipped with Assault Rifles. This was most likely cut due to difficulty, though replacing their Assault Rifles with Shotguns in the final version gives this section no difficulty, as the Shotgun shells never hit the player if they stay atop the patrol tower.
  • Glass Shard, Light Handgun, Assault Rifle, Shotgun + Light and Can were removed.
  • There is unused Prison Key, it can be seen outside the penitentiary gate.

  • Wire, Plastic Bag and Brick were removed from the scene.
  • Originally longer, a story level and was to take place after Road to Ruin and before White Trash.
  • There is an unused Save Point and some Painkillers just behind the gate where Cash enters the warehouse. This scene is named "weasel" in the files (rather than bonus4). It also having unique Starkweather dialogue and music proves that this scene was originally a story level.

Executions[edit | edit source]

  • The Blackjack executions were different.
  • The execution camera was different.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Some graffiti from Road to Ruin reading "Die" was removed.
  • Cash would have originally gotten more bloodied and bruised after being badly injured, such as his nose bleeding and blood stains on his clothes.
  • The Journalist could defend herself and even use weapons, unused dialog for this still exists in the game files.
  • There is unused music, execution camera and Chainsaw sound effects that exists only on the PS2 version of the game in a folder named "COM_TOWE". It even has scene failed and scene completed tracks. (the video does not contain the scene completed soundtrack, execution camera or Chainsaw sound effects). Strangely the scene completed track is a clip from The Simpsons.
  • The Cerberus could crouch while shooting.
  • The Tramp model is located in the GLOBAL folder of the game, which could mean that the Tramp was once meant to be a skin accessible with cheats.
  • The Hoods were supposed to appear in a scrapyard scene in the beta (see Beta hoods in gallery).
  • Seven voice actors are credited for the Smileys, but only six are used in game/found in the game files.
  • The last artwork in Bonus Features has a head model of a beta character, possibly a member of The Lost (see gallery).
  • Sniper Rifle's HUD icon resemble PSG-1, this is a developer oversight.
  • Silenced Sniper Rifle's, Spiked Bat's, IcePick's, Pipe, Piggsy's Wire's and Cane's HUD icon still exist in the game files, interestingly the Cane icon is just a text for the weapon's name.
  • The Tramp has the life meter of all the hunters who is shown if Cash stares or aim at them. This may hint the Tramp was meant to be fought and killed during the game, but it was scrapped, or even that he really was meant to have been Scarecrow.
  • There is an unused texture of the Blackjack found in the game files.
  • In Border Patrol, Piggsy is seen using a yellow Chainsaw instead of the red one he uses in Deliverance, this suggests that the Chainsaw's color was originally yellow or there was a second version of the Chainsaw.
  • Ramirez is credited as having two voice actors. Two unused lines in the audio files shows him using the White Rabbit's line in Mouth of Madness, but slightly different: "You did well, very well, but every film has an ending and this is yours". "Shit! The punk survived the final cut! If he gets me, he gets out! Give me some backup"! Ramirez originally had the White Rabbit's role. This might also explain why he is credited with a second voice actor.
