  • 3 Locations



Description (as a Car)

The Blade may be found on any Mexican gang's turf, and is driven by said gang members, especially the San Fierro Rifa. It can occasionally be seen driven by non-gang affiliated civilians. If the car is equipped with hydraulics, it can be used in lowrider competitions. Being a lowrider, its exterior and interior can be modified at Loco Low Co..


Design

The Blade combines elements of the 1965 and 1968 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Impala#1965-1970 Chevrolet Impalas]. The rear of the car resembles that of the 1963 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Impala#1961-1964 Impala], with convex areas around the taillights rather than concave. Its headlight design is similar to a 1967 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_Cutlass#Second-Generation_Intermediate_-_1964-1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass] (which may be the origin of the Blade's name along with the Sabre). The Blade has no side rear-view mirrors.

While normally appearing with only an open top, the car can be modified at Loco Low Co. to feature a hard top or a convertible top, although the latter is permanently lowered.

Performance

Acceleration and speed are quite impressive, and the brakes and slick handling serve the vehicle well. Although cornering is also excellent, the one major drawback of the Blade is its major oversteer, which makes e-braking turns absolutely futile, and driving at high speeds a challenge due to the potential loss of control at the slightest disturbance. The Blade is capable of withstanding significant impact damage due to its strong frame and overall construction; it does not fare as well against explosive damage, however.

Modifications

  • Loco Low Co.
    A Blade being costomised in GTA San Andreas

Trivia

  • A flame-proof Blade can be found during the mission "High Stakes, Low Rider".
  • The default radio station of the Blade is Radio Los Santos.

Locations

  • Parked in front of the garage of a house east of the El Corona Safehouse in El Corona, Los Santos.
  • Can be found driven around in San Fierro Rifa gang turfs like Doherty, Garcia and Battery Point, all in San Fierro.

Description (as a Boat)

The Blade.The Blade is one of three new boats added into The Ballad of Gay Tony, the others being the Smuggler and the Floater. The boat is similar to GTA IV's Tropic, but features a rear spoiler that sweeps back instead of forward, more like the Squalo. It is the fastest of of the 3 new speedboats.


Locations

  • It will sometimes spawn at the docks next to Golden Pier Swingers Golf Club, in the Meat Quarter.
  • Used during Water-based Drug Wars. Will randomly appear for the player to use during the war. Can be obtained.
