The Crusader is a vehicle in Saints Row: The Third[2] and Saints Row IV. In Saints Row: Gat out of Hell its renamed to Leviathan.

Ui act question

Not to be confused with the Challenger

OverviewEdit

The Crusader is negligibly less durable than the Challenger tank favored by SNG, but is a little faster. It is its armament, however, that puts it in a whole other category than its SNG counterpart.

As opposed to the conventional weapons of the Challenger, the Crusader has an energy-based armament; it eschews the 120mm cannon of the Challenger in favor of a more-destructive Plasma Cannon[source?] that has a larger blast radius, it replaces the 50.cal machine gun with the coaxial Repeating Laser[source?] used by the STAG N-Forcer, and replaces the roof-mounted 50.cal with the same Laser Beam used by the F-69 VTOL. All of the above enable the Crusader to deal considerably more damage than the Challenger, especially with a capable driver and gunner.

The combination of improved speed and vastly improved firepower makes the Crusader an intimidating beast. Whilst it has most of the same strengths and weaknesses as the Challenger, the Crusader's roof-mounted Laser Beam is considerably more effective at downing aircraft - one of the Challenger's big weaknesses - than the Challenger is. Sadly, with the slight decrease in armor, the Crusader is a bit more vulnerable to surface-based weapons, such as Annihilators and GL G20s.

Because the Laser Beam is Crusader's third weapon, it can only be used by a passenger, and not by the driver.[3]

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

The Crusader is the main battle tank of STAG, and is deployed at Notoriety level 4 and 5 after Gang Bang, as well as being featured in numerous STAG missions.

RewardEdit

There is also a separate unique prototype Crusader referred to as STAG Tank V2 which has a black-painted hull.[4]

This Crusader has increased firepower, dealing 50% more damage. It has a black, orange and white paint job. However, there is no difference in durability or speed and the tank is as sluggish as the original Crusader, which, even given the improvement it has over the Challenger, is not a huge benefit.

Other than the color, the only visual difference between normal Crusader and prototype Crusader is an additional antenna near a cannon hatch.

It is said that the tank is a prototype specially made for the STAG Commander Cyrus Temple, due to the fact it has almost exactly the same colour scheme as his F-69 VTOL, which can be obtained after completing "STAG Film".

The internal name of this version is "sp_tank03_Reward", which has only one variant, named "average". This version is not included in the Saints Row IV data files.

SaintsEdit

There is also a separate Saints Crusader which is included in the Special Ops Vehicle Pack DLC, and Saints Row IV. After purchasing the Special Ops Vehicle Pack, the Saints Crusader is automatically added to the Garage.

It is purple and has Saints logos, and is identical to the Crusader as it shares the same handling data.[5]

There is only one variant of this version, named "average".

At low difficulty level the Saints Crusader is extremely powerful. It is very overpowered in terms of armor, and can survive extensive fire from three or four SNG Challenger tanks for a long time.

The tank's main cannon is triangular in shape, rather than the cylindrical design of the regular Crusader.

TriviaEdit

  • There is no Cheat for this vehicle in any game.
  • The tank was first revealed in IGN's preview, where they showcased the Crusader in Wave 1 of Survival.[2]
  • The name "Crusader" might be a homage to the World War Two-era British Crusader tank.
  • The tank resembles the Isreali Merkava MBT, in contrast to the Challenger which resembles an M-1 Abrams tank.
  • The Rim Jobs glitch allows it to be customised with an unused option, Hydraulics. This does nothing; as with the Challenger, neither does giving the vehicle Nitrous.
  • Buying every level of Reinforced Bumper and Frame for Crusader V2 using the vehicle customization glitch makes it almost indestructible. Only after around 30 minutes of constant fire from enemy VTOLs and Crusaders, it starts to give out mere white smoke.
  • Unlike the SNG counterpart, there is a visible orange window, just in the middle of the hull and under the tank's cannon. It is seen using an option to change window's color.
  • A Crusader spawns almost out of view in the Downtown hard instance of Tank Mayhem, including before STAG arrive in Steelport.[6]
  • As with all of the contents of the Special Ops Vehicle Pack, the Saints Crusader is stored on the game disk in the released version of the game and can be accessed through modding on the PC.[7]
