|Saints Row: The Third|
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Specter is highly manoeuvrable and can be flown at low altitudes easier than any of the other VTOL vehicles. This allows it to get into tight spaces such as tunnels and underpasses. The Specter can be switched between two modes: hover mode and flight mode, just like the F-69 VTOL and Condor. Like the other VTOL aircraft, the Specter cannot switch to landing mode while in jet mode, and must first be switched to hover mode. The Specter switches to hover mode automatically when there is no pilot.
The Specter has a front-mounted repeating laser gun. It has an 'ammo' bar below the aiming reticle in the style of the Oring; the weapon has unlimited ammunition but a firing cap that prevents firing the weapon for long periods of time.
While Playa is disguised as Cyrus, the Specter is available in a choice between different prototypes. If the Specter is chosen, it is unlocked in the garage. It is not possible to obtain the Specter without cheats unless it is selected during this mission.

Similar vehicles[edit | edit source]
These are separate vehicles which are based on the Specter. They are not variants, but have same stats and handling.
The Moneyshot Pack contains a vehicle based on the Specter, sporting a black color scheme with Ultor logos. The phone unlock screen for the Ultor Interceptor states that the technology was leased to STAG and that the Interceptor predates the Specter.
The Witches and Wieners Pack contains a vehicle based on the Specter, named Salem. It has the shape of a flying broomstick. It is the only weaponless VTOL.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Cheat for this vehicle in Saints Row: The Third is "givespecter".
- There is no Cheat for this vehicle in Saints Row IV.
- The Specter is small enough to fly into the Rim Jobs garage and the door opens from the outside to allow it in. Doing so repairs cosmetic and body damage as per a ground vehicle. However, the garage doors close behind the hoverbike and do not open for it from the inside, and does not open from the outside when on foot.
- It bears significant resemblance to the hoverbikes in the movie The Island.
- While other STAG vehicles like the Crusader, F-69 VTOL, and N-Forcer all appear in missions in Saints Row IV, the Specter and the Commander do not, although both are still included in the game data files, and can be added to the Garage by editing the game files or using a garage editor. However, the Spectre's guns have serious aiming issues and fire in a completely different direction from where the pilot is aiming.

Female Voice 2: "Just the thing for forest combat, yes?"
Female Voice 2: "It is well built? Not likely to blow up from hitting a tree?"
Kia: "No sir, it is top quality."
