  • The Psychopath outfit is a reference to Leatherface, the main antagonist of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre slasher films. 
  • Left Hand Lance in the Tape it or Die blog mentions both the Psycho Pack outfit, Ninja Skills Pack outfit, and cowboy outfit. He also mentions seeing two Chucks in co-op play.[19]
  • In Off the Record, the Psychopath outfit is automatically available within the game, though all four pieces of it must first be obtained.
