Cottonmouth is the setting of Manhunt 2, a game released by Rockstar Games, the company behind the Grand Theft Auto series.

Cottonmouth may be situated on the west coast of Florida, as the police helicopter shares its colours with the Vice City Police Department Police Maverick helicopter, the Burrito, Stinger and Admiral cars have Florida license plates, and there are palm trees in several levels. The city is based largely on southern US cities, including New Orleans, Charleston, Atlanta, but not any one in particular.[1] In addition, New Orleans was well known for its production of cotton. Because New Orleans is situated on the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico, it would be on a river mouth, hence, Cottonmouth. It is mused that Cottonmouth would exist in the same fictional world as the GTA III Era, because of overlaps and references within them. Cottonmouth is much more modern, cleaner and safer than Carcer City, with skyscrapers in the area of Downtown, domiciled houses and blocks.
