Jason (Part 2)
Part 2 Jason (also commonly referred to as "Sack Head Jason") is one of the variations of Jason Voorhees featured in Friday the 13th: The Game, and numerically the first Jason. This Jason is modeled after his appearance in Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), the debut of him as the main character in the series. He can be unlocked at Level 13.
History (Friday the 13th Part 2)[edit | edit source]
In terms of how Jason Voorhees survived his drowning is up to many interpretations; the more likely and/or logical speculation would've been that Jason survived by being washed up elsewhere or possibly faked his drowning himself as he started a new life in the woods unaware of his mother's whereabouts, but according to the Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash comic (which might not be considered canon in the film series) his mother Pamela Voorhees had apparently used the Necronomicon to resurrect him from the lake which unbeknownst to her it apparently worked. In the film, all is known is that Jason, now a full-grown adult, somehow survived his drowning and was revealed he had been striving from the wilderness in his makeshift shaft for years, unaware of Pamela's status until in 1979 when he had stumbled upon his mother's decapitation and prompting him to seek revenge upon his mother's killer as well as territoriality attacking anyone who enters Crystal Lake.
After he witnessed his mother being decapitated by the sole survivor Alice Hardy, he took his mother's clothes, severed head, and the machete used to kill her, and brought them back to his shack where he builted a shrine inside for it. Two months later, he took his mother's severed head with him and tracked down Alice to her location in the Crystal Lake town where she had been staying recently to recover from Pamela's massacre. When he gets inside the apartment unknown to Alice, he placed Pamela's head inside the refrigerator to frighten Alice before taking an ice pick into her temple, killing her. He then escapes with Alice's body off-screen, just before the police had arrived. During this time and since, Camp Crystal Lake itself has now been condemned and off-limits to anyone.
Five years later in the summer of 1984 (which Part 2 takes place), Jason discovers the location of a nearby counselor training camp hosted by Paul Holt at Packanack Lodge in the Crystal Lake area. Besides this, he also discovers the new counselor group there; Sandra, her boyfriend Jeff, Scott, Terry, wheel-chair bound Mark, Vickie, Ted, and Paul's assistant Ginny who is a majored child psychologist, as well as numerous unnamed trainees. After their arrival late that night, Paul tells the story of Jason and Pamela Voorhees to the counselors, but after a masked Ted scares them with a spear he ensures them that Jason is an urban legend and Camp Crystal Lake is off-limits to them. Unknown to them, Crazy Ralph, who warns the town about the lake having a "death curse", had bicycled his way onto the property where he spies on Paul and Ginny kissing, but Jason garrotes him behind a tree with barbed wire and eventually hides his body in the pantry.
The next day, Jason roams and stalks around the area until the town's sheriff spots him sprinting across the road, and he proceeds after him. Leading him to his shack, the sheriff enters inside only to be in shock upon finding the shrine just as Jason sneaks behind him and slams a hammer into the back of his head. That night, this gives him the opportunity to finally murder the counselors staying back at the camp while Ginny, Paul, Ted, and the trainees head off for a night on the town. He starts by ensnaring Scott in a rope trap he had set down, and slits his throat with a panga machete. After killing Terry off-screen, he takes the machete and slams it into Mark's face before he pushes his wheelchair-prone body down a flight of stairs. Inside, he takes a spear that Ted used to scare everyone earlier and goes upstairs, where he impales Jeff and Sandra having sex in their bed. As Jason takes a kitchen knife, Vicky returns to the lodge looking for Mark, but when she goes upstairs he attacks her by slashing her thigh to corner her before ultimately stabbing her. As he hides the bodies elsewhere, he takes Terry's body back to the shrine.
Ginny and Paul later return, where they find the lodge's lights are powered off and blood on the sheets from Jeff and Sandra's murder. In the dark, Jason ambushes Paul and renders him unconscious during the struggle. Taking a pitchfork, he proceeds after Ginny and tries to kill her inside, but she escapes from the lodge as he continues to chase her around the camp. During the pursuit, Ginny hides underneath a bed, but when she emerges see notices Jason standing on a chair and ready to attack, only for the chair to break from his weight and he falls which upon impact breaks his pitchfork into two. She takes the chance of grabbing out a chainsaw, and activates it to slash at Jason's forearm before she takes a chair to slam onto his back. Rendered unconscious, she flees from the camp and eventually finds Jason's shack in the woods, where an conscious Jason chases her inside. When she barricades herself, she is horrified from seeing the shrine containing Mrs. Voorhees' head and sweater, and the bodies of the sheriff, Terry, and a decomposed Alice. Using her psychology skills and her knowledge of Jason's past when she discussed it with Paul and Ted at the bar, she puts on the sweater as Jason uses a nearby pickaxe to hack away at the door for him to remove the barricade. Once he does this, Ginny uses her ability to conceive Jason as her mother, and this successfully manages to work until when he sees Mrs. Voorhees' head on the table, in which he resumes attacking her. Amidst of this, a revived Paul appears and tackles on the ground, but the latter gains the upper advantage and pins him down. Just before he can finish off Paul with his pickaxe, Ginny takes the machete and slams it down into his left shoulder, seeming killing him. As Ginny then unmasks him to see who he was, they make their way out of the shack and back to the camp.
In Part 2's ending, Ginny and Paul are greeted at the door by Terry's dog Muffin, only for an revived unmasked Jason to burst through the window behind Ginny and grabs her out. The next morning, Ginny is seen being pulled out in a stretcher asking about Paul's now mysterious whereabouts, and the film ultimately ends with Pamela's rotting head still remaining on the shrine as Jason is nowhere to be seen.

Characteristics, Appearance, and Weapons[edit | edit source]
Unlike in the later sequels that have progressed, this Jason - portrayed as a hermit that survived off in the wilderness - remains the most "human" of the human Jasons, and was rather vulnerable to suspected attacks. Though Ginny didn't preform necessarily any kind of heavy attacks on him, she did knock him to the ground with the car door when she tried to start up the car, kicked him in the crotch, fell down the ground upon the chair he stood on broke from his weight, got the top of his forearm slashed with a chainsaw, and lastly she smashed down a chair onto his back. However, he did in fact suffered from the lethal attack of Ginny slamming down the machete into his shoulder, but he barely managed to survive from that. On another aspect, he was considerably a trapper from the fact of placing down a rope trap to ensnare Scott's foot before Jason takes him, and as well as being a stalker from when he was prowling around the camp's premises. Ultimately, he may remain as the most truthful portrayal of him as as normal human being without any kind of super-strength or tough durability, but he can, however, still manage to deal with plenty of bloodshed against the new counselors.
As seen in the film and in-game, Jason's appearance highlights him wearing a sack over his head to cover his deformities, with only one eye hole cut out on the right side as his left eye is deformed, and has a rope tied around his the neck to prevent the sack from being lose. Accompanied with this, he wears a pair of denim overalls over a button blue-plaid shirt, and black work boots.
Unmasked, Jason has a long mattered ginger hair on the left side, bright blue eyes, and a faint scruffy beard. As the right side of his face appears relatively normal, the left side shows the deformities as well as showing it rather tumorous, and his teeth are crooked and yellowing. In comparison to his young original appearance in the first film (when Mrs. Voorhees is referencing his drowning and in the nightmare sequence where a young decomposing Jason grabs Alice out of the canoe and into the water), his appearance has been altered a bit; Part 2's now tumorous look wasn't present in the original, and his head-size is now more smaller rather than bigger in the previous installment.
In the movie, Jason used an ice pick, barbed wire as a garrote, a clawed hammer, a panga machete, a spear, a kitchen knife, a pitchfork, and lastly a pickaxe. For preference, it appeared that Jason favored mostly the spear, pitchfork, and pickaxe, but as well as the panga machete initially. In-game, as well as in most portrayals of Part 2 Jason, his selected weapon is the pickaxe; sometimes outside of the game, he is seen portrayed with the pitchfork as well.
Strengths and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Strengths[edit | edit source]
- Can Run - This Jason is capable of running, which acts more as jogging. Only this Jason, Part 3 Jason, and Part 4 Jason have the ability to run.
- Traps - This Jason starts with 7 bear traps.
- Morph - Faster cooldown, so he can morph more frequently than other Jasons.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
- Shift - The cooldown for this ability is longer, and can move at a slower speed.
- Defense - This Jason has low HP, which means he can get unmasked easier, and has a lower chance to successfully block attacks.
- Water Speed - This Jason is very slow to move in the water.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
In-Game[edit | edit source]
- Although Part 2 Jason in the film was a bit more smaller in size, this has now been corrected in-game where Part 2 Jason would have about the same size as the other Jasons; this is one of the few instances where the continuity has been fairly consisted and corrected in the game.
- This was one of the three Jasons playable in the beta, the others being Part 3 Jason and Part 7 Jason.
- This is the only Jason in-game that has Traps and Morph as strengths.
- Originally, Part 2 Jason had Sense as a strength; this has now changed with him having Traps as a strength instead.
In the films[edit | edit source]
- As his debut for being the main character throughout the series, this was in contrast the first and only appearance of him without him wearing the iconic hockey mask that was introduced in Part 3. However, this is excluded if you count Jason's young appearance in the first film.
- In the film, Jason Voorhees was played by two actors. When he was unmasked, he was played by Warrington Gillette, but when masked he was played by Steve Daskewisz. His facial appearance was modeled by Carl Fullerton.
- Although to this day this remains unconfirmed whenever or not this was a used inspiration, the sack that Jason uses to conceal his identity was largely similar to "The Phantom Killer" from The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976). Unlike Jason, the Phantom Killer's sack had two eye-holes instead of one that Jason has.
- Jason's appearance of him wearing a sack is also very similar to the appearance of John Merrick, the main character of The Elephant Man (1980) in which wore a sack over his face. According in Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th, The Elephant Man was released a year prior and was acclaimed and recognized by critics and audiences alike, so when Part 2 was released upon the following year many of the audiences were drawing similarities to Jason's sack-wearing appearance to John Merricks.
- The death sequences of Mark, and Jeff and Sandra, were largely similar to two particular death sequences in A Bay of Blood/Twitch of the Death Nerve (1971). Much like with Jason's sack, this aspect has been remained unconfirmed whenever or not these deaths were directly ripped-off of the latter film, or it was rather a coincidence that this was placed in the film.
- Though this doesn't necessarily relate to Part 2 Jason himself, originally Part 2 was supposed to end with the shot of Pamela's head laying on the altar beginning to open her eyes. At the last minute, this was changed for being too hokey by the director.
