The Deerhaunter appears in TimeSplitters Future Perfect as a playable character. The character resembles a large deer standing on its hind legs. The Deerhaunter has been stripped of its skin. Its large antlers, hooked arms and hooves make it a formidable opponent. The Deerhaunter appears in the Story mode level Mansion Of Madness as the first boss, originally a deer head mounted on a wall. It seems the illicit experiments at the mansion have caused it to grow a partially-formed body and eventually become animate.

There is a glitch in the fight against The Deerhaunter to make the boss easier; just go into the hole in the wall he came from and he can't hurt you.


  • His name is a reference to the 1978 film called The Deer Hunter.
  • Its facial appearance strongly resembles the 'possessed' deer mount in a scene in 1987's Evil Dead 2, when Ash seems to temporarily lose his sanity.
  • It may also be a reference to the original TimeSplitters story mission Mansion (itself the basis for Mansion of Madness) which had deer heads acting as auto turrets.
  • The phrase "Moose is loose" is used by Jo-Beth Casey and the Deerhaunter, although Deerhaunter does not appear to be a moose.
  • It reuses Bear's sound clips, which are all just generic Bear sound effects, used in many different forms of media.
  • The playable Deerhaunter is actually a different character with different stats, rather than simply a scaled down version of his story mode counterpart. It is possible to play as the story mode Deerhaunter by using Cheat Engine and an emulator.
  • Its internal name is "deerbeast".
