Bat Jacobs is a Survivor in the Sonaran Desert, who was incarcerated following what is believed to be criminal ties with a notorious gang leader, Kit Wakeman. When the apocalypse began, Bat was in the Cactus Springs police station, and he managed to steal the cell keys off of a dead officer, and he took control of the station. When Rachael Scull and Joe Wheeler turned up at the station, Bat met them at the front gate. Rachael begins questioning him on the whereabouts of a gold bullion somewhere in the desert. He doesn't know, but he states that Kit Wakeman is alive and well. The pair leave, Bat asking them to kneecap Kit prior.
He may be recruited by the Survivalists after if they return. This gives the player the 'Just a Patsy' awardment, which is a nod to Lee Harvey Oswald's statement after John Fitzgerald Kennedy's assassination.
There are several options to make him join the community:
- Killing Rachael Scull in front of him, starting a war with Fort Kohai though.
- Giving him lots of vine bottles or cigarettes. After drinking alcohol he will be thirsty and ask you for water.
- Assaulting a survivor in front of him few times will increase your respect. You can expel someone from your community and then rob him/her.
Although not being so useful, having him with you will add extra text in some situations. He can easily recognise Kit Wakeman.
