Roll Cage (5k)

Roll Cage (10k) The Roll Cage is a reasonably popular car with off-road gangs, and is becoming a viable alternative to the Renegade. Similar to the Renegade in many respects, the car is lighter and built for off-road travel as standard, which means that it can go places where the Renegade can't, and has a passenger cage built in for those moments when a driver takes the car to its limit. This passenger cage is also what gives the car its name.

However, performance comes with a price, and the Roll Cage pays its price by a lack of weapon mounts. Where the Renegade has four wing mounts, the Roll Cage only has two side mounts, and in addition, because the Roll Cage has a passenger space as standard, it may only mount a fixed roof weapon, not a turret.

Despite this, or probably because of this, the Roll Cage usually has superior performance over the standard Renegade and is commonly employed as a scouting vehicle for gangs. Some small gangs employ Roll Cages exclusively for mobility.

Unless stated, treat the Roll Cage as a normal Renegade for accessories, handling, acceleration, braking and maximum speed.

The Roll Cage makes a good scouting vehicle - it has off-road capability as standard as well as the ability to use it. The Scouter uses these features to its advantage, making it a fast vehicle, with nitrous oxide to help it run away from trouble. The Scouter isn't designed to take on trouble, but to seek it out and report back.
