As you all may know a good chunk of Jason’s strengths regards to saving time. For example, the destruction strength, you can completely destroy the phone house in 45 seconds top in the beginning of the game. The throwing knife one, in the beginning of the game, you can collect at least 3 and refrain from collecting anymore for the time being to save time as you already have many knives. Below I have 2 strengths I see a lot of Jason’s either don’t use effectively, or don’t use them at all and my take on using them effectively, of course there are a lot more and I’ll them in this post later. I plan on making another post about dealing with the weaknesses. Many of you may agree with what I say, many may not. If I missed something make sure to type it. Peace out.✌️ Weapon Strength : This won’t necessarily save you time in the beginning of the match because most counselors will run away from you. Not only that, in the beginning of the match, you should always grab unless you run into a group armed with weapons. However, later into the match is when this strength really comes into play. When facing a group and they’re fighting you for an objective, the most effective way to win that fight is to dispatch of them quickly before any other counselors outside of that particular group start pushing for another objective. Do not grab in groups, you’re going to get a knife in your throat, or someone saves the counselor you grab and you get damaged. Pocket Knives wastes your time and is a free escape from your grab. Use weapon strength for what it is meant for, slashing. You kill counselors quicker with weapon strength and that may save you enough time. Also handy for kill squads. Throwing Knives : This strength is very deadly if used correctly. I don’t recommend using knives to kill a counselor unless you need that counselor dead immediately and they’re already limping, keep in mind that knives are faster than slashing. First tip, master the -quick throw-. This is the base requirement if you want to use this strength effectively. 2nd, do not waste knives. (Just because you have an abundance of knives doesn’t mean you can stop being conservative with them) if you’re facing a group, target one person at a time while also protecting yourself. Don’t knife everyone you see, that is a waste. Pick someone who is the most dangerous to your killing spree and conservatively target them. I see players make this mistake all the time and this doesn’t just apply to knives it applies to everything. If you’re pressuring one person and then turn around and pressure another you’re just giving the counselor you first pressured time to rest, be relentless. If you get one counselor limping (ideally Tommy Jarvis or Sweater Girl) the rest of the flock will put themselves in harms way to protect them. 3rd, use knives to cancel animations. 4th, if there’s a high chance you’re going to miss the knife throw, don’t take the chance, you’d be amazed on how many knives I’ve wasted just by doing that. I like to have at least 5 knives in my inventory at all times. Knives save you time, pressure counselors, and can grant you quick and easy kills. The more you have the better, just know when you should collect them and when you should not, when you should throw them and when you should not.
I had a request to share this info, so without further adieu... I spent Friday the 13th, October 2017 at a convention (flyer here) and was able to learn a lot of information about the Part 7 costume. The night started with a photo-op with Kane Hodder in full Part 7 makeup, so I was literally face to terrifying face with it (he lifted me up by my chin just as the photographer took the picture). During the rest of the weekend I spoke to John Carl Buechler (Director & Make-up designer for Part 7) about his process for both the makeup and the mask. John started by reviewing the previous films to keep continuity with all the injuries and damage that Jason had taken. With that as a starting point, he degraded him further to show the rot that had occured from being in the lake for so long. Over time the leather gloves and utility belt would completely rot off, the clothes would wear and tear, flesh would bloat and be fed upon. A rib cage, spine, shoulder bones, forearms, knees, guts, etc., were sculpted, molded, and then cast in a poly foam. Each were given appropriate paint jobs and in some cases made to look wet (like the guts) and then had liquid latex applied over them to mimic rotted dripping flesh. The head was twelve seperate pieces cast in silicone (IIRC), painted up, and then applied to Kane one at a time. Kane mentioned that it took several hours to apply the makeup and there was no getting out of it until the day's shoot was done. The full makeup was worn during the entire filming. This was a different process than most of the Jasons had to go through, as the others only had a full face makeup when his face was revealed, the rest of the time they just wore an open faced cowl so they weren't so trapped in the costume. From there they weathered the clothes by randomly cutting them up, but in some cases specifically to reveal the makeup work below. The chain was actually plastic painted to look like rusted metal. For the mask he was given the previous film's mask as a starting point. I, unfortunately, didn't think to ask if he meant that he received the mold from the Part 6 or a pull to recast (I'm assuming a pull). It was vaccuformed in black ABS plastic and then intentionally made smaller, by removing much of the perimiter of the mask, to reveal more of the underlying makeup and simulate some extra wear from being under water. Then it was cut to remove the propeller damaged area and given many deep cuts/scratches to simulate cracks at the point of impact from the propeller. More weathering like the bubbly "road rash" like texture over and around the right eye (which was done with a torch), slight warping at some points (most notably on the right cheek), and other random wear and scratches were added. The shape of the mask, propeller damage, and warping were also done very deliberately (explained further down). There were several copies made at the time of filming, but only the one was actually used during filming, because, in John's words, the others "walked off the set". It was then painted and weathered in acryllics in a lighter tone than the Part 6. The mask is definitely, and very intentionally, lighter than the Part 6 mask. While I always just assumed that this was due to much of the blood and grime washing off while under water, there is actually another reason that John lightened the color palette and made the other creative decisions that he did with the shape and size of the mask, he was very deliberately trying to give it the look of a skull. He told me that he wanted his "meat terminator" Jason to look like death in the shadows. Finally, Kane confirmed that the black scratches were a natural occurance from filming because only the one mask was used during the shoot. He remembers one set of scratches coming from his fall into the puddle of water on the gravel road and another coming from his face dive down the stairs of the porch after the roof was dropped on him.
