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.
The Deerhaunter makes its sole appearance in TimeSplitters Future Perfect. It appears as the first boss character in Mansion of Madness, fighting Cortez and Jo-Beth Casey in the mansion's dining room. Outside of Story mode, it appears in a single Arcade League match, as well as a couple of bot sets.
