Bloodring Bangers are evidently vehicles modified for use in demolition derbies, and as such are stripped down with added safety features for the driver, such roll bars (which varies depending on their car number) and netting for the driver's compartment for ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', or roll bars and welded bars of metal in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]''.
Bloodring Bangers are evidently vehicles modified for use in demolition derbies, and as such are stripped down with added safety features for the driver. The Bloodring Banger is originally available in GTA Vice City in the form of either a modified [[Glendale]] (internally named "bloodra") or [[Oceanic]] (internally named "bloodrb"); in GTA San Andreas, however, only the Glendale is used.
 
   
Cosmetic modifications of the Banger include roll bars (which varies depending on their car number) and netting for the driver's compartment for GTA Vice City, and roll bars and welded bars of metal in GTA San Andreas. Bloodring Bangers are only capable of seating two, unlike the Glendale and Oceanic, which both seat four. The GTA San Andreas rendition does not even feature opening doors; in CJ's entry animation, he climbs in through the window. Girlfriends or recruited gang members can access the car the same way with no problems. The vehicle acts as if it has no doors; If an NPC is angered and proceeds to pull CJ out of it, he will do so, but CJ will fall through the panel that is in place for the door, as if it was not there. Also, Policemen are able to Bust CJ without opening the door and pulling him out. Oddly, if an NPC is in a Bloodring Banger, CJ can't steal the car from him or pull the NPC out of it. Being vehicles outfitted for demolition derbies, Bangers typically feature unconventional color schemes, including some with checkered roofs. Being fitted with protection bars all around its body, the car won't get any visual damage after bumps and scratches with other vehicles. Also, they have only one license plate, the rear one, partially covered by the protection bars. Another minor difference is the roof-mounted racing numbers on Bloodring Bangers in the PlayStation 2 and PC versions; while the PS2 version has scribbled numbers, the same signage is completely black in PC versions, likely a programming mistake during porting.

The Bloodring Banger is a vehicle that is used in the Bloodring and Blood Bowl stadium challenges in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, respectively.

Description Edit

Bloodring Bangers are evidently vehicles modified for use in demolition derbies, and as such are stripped down with added safety features for the driver, such roll bars (which varies depending on their car number) and netting for the driver's compartment for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, or roll bars and welded bars of metal in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Design Edit

The Bloodring Banger is originally available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in the form of either a modified Glendale (internally named "bloodra") or Oceanic (internally named "bloodrb"). Being vehicles outfitted for demolition derbies, Bangers typically feature unconventional color schemes, including some with checkered roofs. Being fitted with protection bars all around its body, the car won't get any visual damage after bumps and scratches with other vehicles. Also, they have only one license plate, the rear one, partially covered by the protection bars. Another minor difference is the roof-mounted racing numbers on Bloodring Bangers in the PlayStation 2 and PC versions; while the PS2 version has scribbled numbers, the same signage is completely black in PC versions, likely a programming mistake during porting.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, however, only the Glendale is used, and unlike any of the Bloodring Bangers in its previous appearances, there are no doors. Instead, when CJ have to enter the vehicle, he climbs in through the window (although girlfriends or recruited gang members can access the car the same way).

While the GTA Vice City renditions of the Bloodring Banger sport well-known Vice City and Liberty City businesses as sponsors, GTA San Andreas' Bloodring Bangers do not feature any advertising. The following ones are:

BLOODRA
BLOODRB

  • The "bloodrb" model, textures and handling line exist in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but they are not used. However, it does not appear to be based on the Oceanic, but on another Glendale, similar to the "bloodra" in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
