What kind of Jason is this?
Sack Head Jason is arguably the most human in the Friday The 13th franchise. He is skilled at covering long distances quickly with his improved morph ability and can wear down counselors’ endurance by sprinting after them. Sack Head Jason will keep players on their toes and alert due to the large number of traps he can place across the map. If you like leaving traps and giving counselors a hard time near objective points and guarding vehicles this is the Jason for you.
Pre-launch tips for playing as Jason Part 2 a.k.a. Sack Head Jason
. Place a trap at important locations such as the entrance to vehicles and repair boxes where the phone is located.
. If a group of counselors is hiding in a cabin with only 1 or 2 windows to escape, you can box them in by placing a trap right where they would land after crawling out a window.
. Pay attention to sounds since once a trap has been sprung, you can use your mini map to check which trap was triggered and then morph right to it for an easy kill.
. Only use shift when you have to, and if that is on cooldown, use morph to cut off counselors who have a bit of a head start.
. Don’t chase counselors in the water. Due to your slow movement speed in the water, counselors can easily escape from you if you openly chase them. If you want to kill a counselor who is running down the game clock in the water, use stealth and slowly approach them in the water since they cannot see you.
. If the boat is one of the escape vehicles spawned in the opening parts of a match, make sure counselors don’t get it started since you will have a difficult time chasing them if they successfully startup the boat.
Tips for avoiding Sack Head Jason and not getting killed:
You’re going to want to be on the move constantly and stay in groups when fighting Sack Head Jason. If you stay in a cabin too long or perhaps take too long to start the vehicles, Sack Head will likely trap the areas, leaving you with very limited escape options. Stick with a buddy so you can buy them time to escape a Jason trap or just lend support if they need help.
Sack Head Jason has weak defenses meaning you’re going to have a better chance of stunning him if you have two counselors swinging at him instead of one. Also since Jason’s weapon swing cooldown or timing was increased, you’ll have a better shot at finding an opening. Once you knock down Jason, run! Shift is one of this Jason’s weaknesses, so if he already burned it earlier, you’ll have a good head start.
Since Sack Head Jason has a slow swim speed, you’ll have a better chance outrunning him if you escape via boat, just watch out for traps along the way.
