** Averted in the Hoxton Revenge heist. If the panic room has a retinal scanner, and the FBI boss happens to be killed, then the stealthy part of the heist goes out the window, as the scanner needs an eye with a pulse.
** During the Boiling Point heist of the ''Film/HardcoreHenry'' DLC, the scanner has a chance to require the lead scientist's handprint. Unfortunately, the lead scientist is a little on the dead side, having been ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice on some rebar. Still, you only need his hand...

* Used as a threat in ''Dragon Fighter''. Stuck in an underground research facility with raging dragon, the main character asks a lab technician for his laptop, which is needed to let everyone out. The technician tells him that the laptop is in his room, which is locked with a biometric lock. But since the monster is between them and the room, he is unwilling to go there. Frustrated, the main character grabs a cleaver and nearly hacks the guy's hand off in order to scare him to come with him.
