Schütze Jakob was an SS soldier who through some unknown means was killed and reanimated as a zombie, along with his commanding officer Kruger. Underneath his helmet he was missing his scalp and had a large chunk taken out of his skull. He still had his holstered Walther P38 pistol.
- Although Jakob's box identifies him as "Pvt. Jakob," meaning he'd be a schütze, his insignia is actually that of a rottenführer or corporal.
- Although he is dressed in the stereotypical all-black SS uniform, his attire depends on when he became a zombie. In any event, the black uniform can be said to be artistic license on DAM's part.
