Saints Row Wiki

Murderbots are characters in Saints Row IV.


Murderbots are robotic enemies affiliated with the Zin Empire which are introduced in the mission "Power Up CID".

In battle they are summoned via Portals and attack Playa by shooting at them with either the Lasergun Arm or the Minethrower Arm. When a Murderbot is destroyed, it may snap in half and the upper torso crawls towards Playa. This can be avoided by destroying the head first.


  • The Murderbot is a reference to the Terminators from the Terminator franchise. The internal animation set is named "terminator", and the character definition is named "luchadors_male_cyborg".
  • The crawling torso is a reference to the end of the first Terminator movie where Sarah Connor is pursued by the Terminator even after its lower body is destroyed.
  • They are called Murderbots by Playa, and the Zin never mention them.
  • There is a purple Murderbot that only appears during the mission "The Case of Mr. X".[1]
