Biker is a character in the 2012 video game Hotline Miami. He is both a boss enemy and playable character. Biker later makes a small appearance in the 2015 sequel, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.
Biker's first appearance is in Chapter 7 - Neighbors. When the main character (Jacket) arrives at the PhoneHom company and enters the room where Biker is in. Biker will attempt to get close to him to kill him and will occasionally throw his weapon at the main character.
After Jacket retrieves a golf club from the nearby golf bag and hits Biker twice, he will kneel over and fight for his life, Jacket bashes his head off with the golf club killing him.
After the Main Storyline
After beating Jacket's chapters, Biker becomes a playable character, just like Jacket he receives the same phonecalls. Unlike Jacket, Biker wants to find out who keeps sending messages and attempts to end his affiliation with the group. His investigation leads him to the PhoneHom company, and kills one to all unarmed workers and investigates company files. After that Jacket arrives to stop him, Biker takes the upper hand and kills Jacket. Biker then travels to the place where the calls came from, which he found through the PhoneHom company computer. Spotting a Janitor fleeing, Biker follows him to the sewers, which is full of mask boxes and phones. It is revealed that two unnamed janitors were responsible for all killings. Depending on their actions, the player will be given one of two possible endings:
- Standard Ending: If Jacket hasn't collected all letters. Biker confronts the janitors and they claim that they got bored and those phone calls were nothing but entertainment.
- Secret Ending: If Jacket has collected all letters. Biker is able to guess the password for the computer system and discovers their true goals, the janitors will then explain that they want to destabilize the Russo-American coalition by murdering the Russian mafia, all under the direction of an American patriotic group known as 50 Blessings. The pair will explain that Biker signed up for this.
After the player may kill the janitors or spare them, Biker then leaves on his Motorcycle. (Wether Biker kills the janitors or not they appear in the second game alive.) Seeing as both Jacket and Biker are unreliable narrators, the true events are a mix of both the character's versions.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
Biker makes a short re-appearance in the second game, being seen outside the Courthouse during Jacket's trial in the 6th level.
In the beginning of the level there is a secret voice message left by Biker to Evan, saying that he has information about the 50 Blessings organization. If the player discovers this message they meet Biker at a bar once the level ends. There Biker is seen disfigured from the fight he had with Jacket, his eyes are now blood red and has a beard. He reveals that he fled to the desert after talking to the Janitors and it is also implied that Biker never discovered the password for the Computer, meaning the Secret Ending is not canon. The information given by Biker is not enough and Evan refuses to give him money and leaves the bar.
It is unknown if Biker survived the nukes by Russia in the end of the game, seeing as he is not present in the New Game + cutscene, where all the deceased characters were in, Biker most likely fled the USA as a whole.
Not much known about Biker's personality, but he appears more talkative and saner than Jacket. He also has standards as he spares lives of some his targets, for example Aubrey and the man in the safe house.
