Robert Jacobs is the main and only playable character in Homefront. He is a former Marine helicopter pilot recruited by the American Resistance.

Pre-warEdit

On January 14th, 2025, the day before the EMP blast, Jacobs traveled from his home in Colorado to Los Angeles to interview with the Greater Korean Republic's consulate office for a helicopter pilot job he saw advertised. There, he was about to see a faux faith healer show at the L.A. Arena (formerly known as the Staples Center) but was persuaded not to by Ben Walker. Jacobs was on his way home when the EMP was activated.

Joining the ResistanceEdit

In 2027, Jacobs was arrested from his make-shift home in Montrose, Colorado by the Korean People's Army (KPA) for failing to answer drafts from the Korean Occupation forces and is taken on a prison bus to be sent to a re-education camp in Alaska. After witnessing several horrendous acts committed by the KPA, his bus is purposely rammed by a big rig truck with at least two American Resistance members in it and flipped over. After the crash, Jacobs is taken to safety by American Resistance members Connor Morgan and Rianna. Jacobs, without any choice, is forced into the Resistance after killing Korean Military Police, and is given the task of helping the Resistance as their helicopter pilot so that they can obtain and protect jet fuel stolen from the Koreans that will then be delivered to the United States Armed Forces in their counterattack on San Francisco.

Jacobs is rescued after Korean troops fail to recapture him and taken into the Resistance's hideout, the Oasis, where he is introduced to Resistance leader Boone Karlson. Jacobs then went deep behind enemy lines with Connor and Hopper to retrieve tracking beacons that they later plant on a fuel truck, allowing them to trace it to a convoy that is to be captured. After the mission, the Resistance returned to the Oasis and were shocked to find that the Koreans had discovered their hideout and had murdered everyone, including Boone. The Oasis was burned to the ground. After intense fighting they were witnessing the Koreans bombing and burning American houses in Montrose as payback for the Resistance's actions the night before. Jacobs and the Resistance decided to continue their plan and broke through the Korean-built wall surrounding Montrose, but had no other choice but to destroy their own Goliath packed with C4 as a way to break the wall, and they set out to find the fuel tanks.

Operation Shopping CenterEdit

Jacobs and the Resistance traveled to a survivalist compound in Utah where the inhabitants possessed a helicopter. Boone had previously arranged a deal with the survivalists for the helicopter; however, the survivalists were dangerous and out of their minds, according to Connor. The survivalists didn't follow Boone's arrangement due to Boone's untimely death, and instead demanded the Resistance give Rianna and Hopper to them. The Resistance refused their offer, thus forcing Jacobs and the Resistance to fight through and steal their helicopter to get to the fuel tanks. Jacobs provides air support for the others as they hijack and drive the fuel tankers to San Francisco.

San FranciscoEdit

Jacobs took part in the fighting at the Golden Gate Bridge alongside the Resistance and the U.S. Armed Forces. Unable to land on the bridge, Jacobs and Connor fought their way up through one of the towers. While on the bridge, Jacobs was thrown off the bridge by a missile, but manages to catch himself before falling, and scrambled safely onto the underpass. While his comrades assume he is dead, Jacobs fights his way through the underpass to the other side. On the bridge, two sentries pin down the convoy, and they are unable to advance until Jacobs, unbeknownst to them, resurfaces behind the sentries, which he successfully takes out, much to the surprise and relief of the convoy.

The U.S. Armed Forces then attacked the anti-aircraft guns that had been eliminating their air support. After capturing the anti-aircraft guns on the bridge, the Resistance drove a Humvee to the opposite side where they were attacked by an enemy Goliath. Jacobs was able to destroy it by shooting an oil truck next to it, but this causes their vehicle to topple over as they see Korean reinforcements driving up the bridge. The United States Air Force could not identify the enemy targets until Connor signaled their target with a flare and sacrificed his life to destroy the convoy. Jacobs survived the explosion and the Americans proceeded with their assault in San Francisco.

TriviaEdit

  • Throughout Homefront, as a sort of running gag, Jacobs has the ability that involves in surviving several life-and-death situations that are effectively impossible to survive. Hopper noted Jacobs' survival in response to his near falling to death from the Golden Gate Bridge by saying "That's like, the fifth thing you've fallen off of and lived!"
  • Jacobs never says a word and his face is never seen throughout Homefront. However, his face, although covered by a bandana with the Korean star, appears on the cover art of Homefront and the novel Homefront: The Voice of Freedom.
