The Metal Detector is an intractable obstacle in Hotline Miami.
The metal detector only appears in Chapter 13, Assault. Out of the entire level, six metal detectors appear.
- Although metal detectors are a vital part of being used in banks, prisons and Police Stations, no metal detectors appear in the scenes: Final Cut, Release, Blood Money, and Caught.
- The reason why metal detectors would not appear in Final Cut or Caught could be that they are set in "Movies".
- It's most likely it didn't re-appear in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number because the levels are panicked and spread out by default, and adding in an enemy lure would break the design of them.
