The Briefcase is a unique weapon in Hotline Miami and the primary object of the prelude chapter, The Metro. At the start of the chapter, Jacket is instructed by 50 Blessings to discreetly throw the briefcase in a dumpster. The player never learns about the contents.
As a weapon, it has a very short range and moderate swing speed. Similar to the drill, the briefcase can only knock down enemies, this means the player must execute every enemy when using the briefcase. The briefcase has a unique execution move where Jacket bashes a downed enemy's head in with the briefcase.
The briefcase is only available at the end of The Metro, after killing a man wearing a long coat on the second floor of the metro station.
- The briefcase cannot be dropped.
- The briefcase appears in PAYDAY 2 for anyone who owns Hotline Miami on their Steam account, or is playing the Crimewave Edition on Xbox One/PS4. It functions as a low-level melee weapon that has a superior knockdown rate and maximum concealment.
- There is currently a glitch where if a player executes an enemy after obtaining the briefcase the briefcase will drop.
