[[WMG: [[spoiler: Beard's death was what pushed Jacket into being an assassin.]]]]
[[spoiler: In Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Beard's arc shows that he and Jacket fought in the war over Hawaii together, and after Beard saved Jacket's life from the exploding nuclear plant, their mission in Hawaii was done. After Beard and Jacket were sent back, they evidently stayed good enough friends to remain in contact with each other (and for Beard to feature in Jacket's hallucinations in Hotline Miami.). This could have stemmed from Jacket, being shellshocked from what he'd dealt with in Hawaii, not being able to properly acclimate himself to society, and using Beard, who adapted quite nicely to society after the battle, as a moral crutch. When Beard got killed in the nuclear strike on San Francisco in 1986, this took away one of the few methods Jacket had of coping with his PTSD, which eventually led him to taking up assassination, defaulting back to the violence he grew used to back in Hawaii when presented the opportunity by 50 Blessings.]]

Both games have an 80's aesthetic, have protagonists that kill large amounts of people, and [[spoiler: Blood Dragon]]'s description leads credence to this theory: [[spoiler:"Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war, which erupted in the '90s."]]

Becouse one crapsack timeline isn't enough. I can imagine Hotline Miami taking place during fear loathing and gumbo timeline.

Every other major, playable cast member, including Jacket, was unambiguously incinerated by atomic fire if they weren't killed off earlier. But Biker isn't shown dying in the credits. He's a hermit in the middle of the desert -- not a direct target for a nuclear warhead.

In Hotline Miami, [[spoiler: Jacket fights and kills Biker in his arc. However, in Biker's arc, he kills Jacket.]] As both are alive in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, this doesn't make sense from either perspective. However, it does if you notice [[spoiler: the masks. In Jacket's arc, Biker is fought with whatever mask the player decides to wear, but in Biker's arc Jacket is wearing the rooster (Richard) mask. Now you might belief that the rooster mask was selected for Biker's fight with Jacket because the Richard mask is simply the default mask, but that's never the mask that Jacket is ever really associated with; in the promotional art, Jacket is wearing Aubrey, the pig mask, and in the film representation of his crimes (Midnight Animal) in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number he's also portrayed as wearing Aubrey. As Jacket and Biker are just two of the people receiving the phone calls, and since Jake also receives these calls in Hotline Miami 2, it shouldn't be too much a stretch to assume other individuals are involved]]

* The character is actually wearing the Dennis mask. Unfortunately, they don't appear in the second game.

It seems somewhat odd we'd have such a major development occur completely off-screen, with little build up. [[spoiler: With the slow, sad destruction of the USA centered on the credits that lead up to our Surprise Stinger title page, it seems like we may actually put the violence this series thrives on to use in stopping the death of the world. Perhaps, even better, it'll wrap up the overarching theme of violence's pointlessness with a non-lethal destruction of 50 Blessings?]]

Alright, this is a bit of stretch, but I personally believe it makes sense considering the events of Hotline Miami 1, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and promotional art, so just hear me out.

** Jossed, at least somewhat. The Hitman kills because he is indeed forced into it, but [[spoiler: he joined 50 Blessings of his own free will, and wants to murder the Russian mob of his own volition.]]
