The Vampire is Fusion vehicle in Crash of Cars.
It's name is a legend, and it's atypical for health lust but unique survival abilities are what makes it stand.
Vampire is mostly dark blue. Its windshield is tinted black while the others are covered in red shades. The rims are surrounded by whitewall tires and behind the structure there are two large black fins, colored identically to the rims. Two top-mounted roof racks and a set of side steps are distributed and gold-painted. The front grille is missing and in place it is an openable hood, with the spot being taken over by sharp spikes and behind it is a field of pure crimson. Two small headlights are attached by thin metal, resulting in a rather ghastly front.
The Vampire loses health over time at a slow rate (including armor). The self-damage will stop automatically at 1 health, but resumes when it's current health exceeds his value.
As an advantage, however, Vampire steals health (in which it heals itself) upon collision with other vehicles, unlike normal vehicles that usually gets damaged upon collision. Note that it can only steal health when it's engine (or rather, mouth), collides with another vehicle. Healing will only occur after non-lethal damage is applied, if any.
Vampire is rather fragile and delicate, but it's advantage shows when in a crowd of crashing cars or simply crashing into cars. Recklessly bumping into a bunch of cars heads-on may simply heal yourself.
Now instead of worrying of getting hit by weapons, Vampires should take care of the cars the ram into. Stronger cars are often preferable targets, but only if they are helpless. The downside of the ability is that, while moderately reliable, it must be used constantly, and users can be easily destroyed if they cannot heal with the ability.
- The Vampire is based on the "Munster Koach" vehicle, made from 3 Ford Model Ts and was designed by the legendary George Barris for the Munsters TV series.
- It is also one of the only few vehicles, as well as the only Fusion vehicle with whitewall tires.
- Vampire allude to the fictional character Count Dracula, as well as the rumors and legends of vampires, who live on sucking other's blood.
- When stealing health, the engine hood opens briefly.
- The grille of Vampire resembles vampire fangs. It's unknown that how a car like this can run since the engine compartment is empty when looked through the mouth.
- However, vehicles can simply have different engine arrangements, meaning that in the case of Vampire, it is simply embedded inside the vehicle.
Bugs and Glitches
- In the 2020 Mansion Update onwards, the hood of the Vampire does not open when stealing health. This was fixed in the Skygarden Update.
- Vampire can steal health from invincible vehicles. However, they don't take damage in this case.
- A green spinning aura appears when Vampire heals by stealing health. A decrescendo sound is also played briefly.
Changes in Updates
- Vampire was introduced in the 2017 Winterland Update.
- In the 2020 Mansion Update its speed and handling was improved. When it bumps into a vehicle with its front hood, its handling is also further enhanced briefly.
- Previously before the update, the speed and handling of the Vampire are average and it does not have the handling enhancement ability.
- The health loss rate is reduced to 1 health per 17 seconds.
- After the Hypergrid Update, the health loss rate has been decreased, and as such it loses 1 health over the course of 12 seconds.
