"He thinks he escaped justice, but we got our own kind of justice lined up for him." - Skinz member
The Skinz are a gang of white supremacists that appear in Manhunt.
The Skinz are a group of Hunters comprised of white nationalists, skinheads, and Neo-Nazis. They patrol their Junkyard turf aggressively in baboon packs and brutally attack tresspassers. Members wear traditional skinhead attire, including black shirts, camouflage pants, army boots, shaved heads and suspenders. Many Skinz also wear hockey masks to intimidate their foes. They also wear clothing and armbands that are covered with mock Nazi symbols. Skinz members can be heard swearing allegiance to the Aryan Brotherhood, spouting off far-right and fundamentalist views and expressing hatred towards other races. Several of the Skinz talk to themselves about wanting to make their dead fathers proud of them. They believe that Cash is a mixed-race "mud blood" and hunt aggressively for him, although that may have been a lie told to them by Ramirez or Starkweather to give them further motivation to kill Cash. Their weapons of choice are the Metal Bat, the Nail Gun, and the Knife.
Cash first encounters the Skinz after getting dropped off at Denton's City Junkyard by Cerberus operatives. A group of Skinz are seen being given orders to by Ramirez at the beginning of the scene. He makes his way through the scrapyard and kills off the many Skinz patrolling it. As Cash ventures deeper into the junkyard, he uses two magnetic cranes to clear junk blocking his path and picks off the remaining Skinz. As he leaves the junkyard, Cash is snatched by Cerberus again and the Skinz are never seen again.
- Some of their members wear hockey masks nearly identical to the hockey mask worn by horror film icon Jason Voorhees.
- The Bank Job Outfit in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and the Overalls Outfit in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories feature similar hockey masks. Similar hockey masks to the ones worn by certain Skinz members can also be purchased from Pro Laps in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Vespucci Movie Masks in both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.
- The Skinz were deleted from the level Mouth of Madness.
- Some of the Skinz have NPFO tattoed on their heads, and some wear shirts with NPFO written on it. It may reference the Dead Kennedys song "Nazi Punks Fuck Off!". Some also wear shirts bearing the letters NPFO (a possible abbreviation of the song's title), others have shirts reading "First To Go" (a recurring lyric in the song). The words "FUCK OFF," painted or possibly tattooed on the chests of some of the Skinz may also reference the song. This is ironic since the Dead Kennedys are actively against skinheads/Neo-Nazis in reality, and the song "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" was intended to repel the large skinhead fanbase the band had early in their career.
