Casualties is the 16th chapter of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, and the last from Beard's storyline, being set on October 30th, 1985.

Scene Edit

Intro Edit

The cutscene begins with a discussion between the Beard's Unit: they are surprised by the forthcoming last mission and suspect that HQ wants them dead before their withdrawal. Suddenly the Colonel breaks in, completely drunk, wearing the face of a dead panther as a mask and shouting about the true bestial and violent nature of humanity (this speech is a reference to 50 Blessings, whose symbol is carved on the improvised mask and hints at the idea of masked killings).

The day after, in the morning, Beard is briefed by the Colonel, who confesses to him his frustrations about the war and his future in military bureaucracy, and tells him that he is quite sure that all of them will die in this mission.

Power Plant Edit

The mission objective is to seize a power plant from Soviet control. The level is composed of 4 main sections.

After clearing all stages, Beard rejoins his squad at the main control room, discovering that the Soviet General in charge has killed all the technicians and sent the plant into meltdown before committing suicide.

The squad tries to escape, but Barnes is mortally wounded by a booby-trapped elevator, which also incapacitates Jacket. Daniels rushes over to stay with Barnes while Beard takes Jacket on his shoulder and escapes through the underground tunnels.

Outro Edit

Outside the power plant the survivors (Beard and a wounded Jacket) are joined by an US army patrol. Beard calls for CASEVAC on the radio. To salute his friend, he gives him the Polaroid picture that Evan took in the intro of Ambush.

Half a year later, on April 3rd, 1986, Beard is at his convenience store in San Francisco, California. He is speaking on the phone with Jacket, comforting him for the loss of his girlfriend and asking for a copy of their Polaroid picture. He then hangs up, wanting to investigate a gathering of people in front of his shop. After he goes outside, he is obliterated by a nuclear detonation.

Music Edit

  • "Interlude" by Chromacle plays in the intro at Beard's camp.
    • "Richard" by Life Companions plays when the Colonel walks into the Ghost Wolves while wearing the Panther mask.
    • "Ghost" by El Huervo plays at the camp the morning after.
  • "The Way Home" by Magic Sword plays during the main level.
  • "Around" by Modulogeek plays in the outro after having escaped the Power Plant.
  • "Disturbance" by Endless plays in the outro at Beard's shop in San Francisco.

Trivia Edit

  • The Colonel is involved in the 50 Blessings organization, we can see in the intro that he has drawn with the blood of the panther the logo on an American flag, and of course he carved it on his improvised mask.
  • In the outro Beard calls for Casevac, stating that he is located at the coordinates: 19.42° N 155.28° W. In real life this would place him just outside the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.
  • On Hard Mode, after the elevator explodes, it is possible to leave without picking up Jacket. If the player does, Beard will escape through the tunnels by himself. However, Jacket will still appear as normal in the polaroid scene.
  • If the player runs out of time when escaping the tunnels, the screen will fade to white, and the player has to restart.
