The Mutant Hijacker is an exceptionally skilled mutant trained in the hijacking of enemy vehicles. He appears in Tiberian Sun.

Background

He is an important member of the Forgotten, as he acquires vehicles and technology for them. He wears a long trenchcoat and a salvaged Nod light infantry helmet for protection when stealing a vehicle.

He's able to even steal the Mammoth Mk. II and any faction's MCV with ease. Like other mutants, he can also heal in Tiberium fields.

Interestingly, the hijacker often preferred to hire his services out to the Brotherhood of Nod instead of GDI. After the Firestorm Crisis, the Forgotten, along with their Hijackers, went into their self-imposed exile.

Trivia

It would seem strange for the Mutant Hijacker to work for the Brotherhood of Nod due to the faction's view on Mutants however it would make it clear that some of these soldiers are mercenaries that will work for anyone if they are willing to pay.

If the player listens closely when the hijacker responds, they will hear music in the background of his response.
