|Saints Row: The Third|
- It's not uncommon to see things like various vehicles around the city, like, for instance, the Johnny Gat-mobile. And of course, that cigarette in his mouth is actually a flamethrower... this, er, vehicle usually has the right-of-way.
- — Drew Holmes
Of the 86 land vehicles in Saints Row: The Third, there are 29 which are faster than the Gat Mobile, 40 which are slower, and 17 which are the same speed. Of the 3 vans in the game, it is second best in terms of speed, but has the greatest mass, torque and hitpoints.
The Gat Mobile is second in hitpoints only to the various tanks in the game.
|Gat Mobile flamethrower|
The cigarette is actually a flamethrower.
When driving and using the flamethrower at the same time, the flames are usually hit by the vehicle and not have any effect on enemies unless they are very close or the vehicle is driving very slow. The range of the flame is quite short and narrow, only hitting objects directly in front of the car at short range. The maneuverability is too sluggish to aim the flamethrower fast enough, making this very impractical.
In Saints Row: The Third, much like the Genki Manapult, when the horn is used, it sounds off the following quotes by Johnny Gat:
- "A buncha assholes..."
- "Ha... I love this part."
- "This is how it's done!"
- "You wanna play, motherfucker?"
- "You think you can stop us?"
- (a laugh)
In Saints Row IV, normal car horn is used instead.
- In a parking lot in front of a Planet Saints store in the Yearwood.
- In traffic, rarer than any other vehicle.
