The HellCat is much different than the other zoomers. It is assumed that HellCats would not make a good choice for pursuits for they are built with heavy cannons. The HellCat starts off rather sharp in the front and continues to enlarge until it reaches the seats. Once past the two seats the HellCat become heavy and large. It contains an operable cannon on the back which is used by Jak to take down KG Death Bots. In Jak II, HellCats are red as they are owned by the Krimzon Guard while in Jak 3, HellCats are blue as they are owned by the Freedom League.
The HellCat was originally used by the Krimzon Guard to patrol the airways of Haven City. It was most likely used for heavy combat situations, like Metal Head attacks. The HellCat would make a good choice for defending the city. In Jak 3, Torn and Ashelin rescue Jak and Daxter with their HellCat. This could also mean it can be used as a makeshift transport vehicle since it can hold three (the most capacity of all zoomers). Jak also used a HellCat against large KG Bot attacks in the Green Zone. The HellCat Cruiser was used in Jak 3 to reach the KG War Factory.
The HellCat pleased the Krimzon Guard and Freedom League well. It was the standard issue of heavy assault vehicles and remained in production throughout the war.
- Provided double barreled cannon on back that could provide heavy fire.
- Made well as a makeshift transport (Mostly for infantry, not civilians).
- Heavily armored. (takes more hits to destroy than any other Zoomer)
- Heavy and slow. Even when fully accelerating it can be outrun by every other Zoomer, and is slow to change between flight zones
- Poor handling. The weight of the Hellcat can make turns very difficult.
- Like every other zoomer, it is weak to blaster fire (In Jak II, stealing the Hellcat would often result in the HellCat exploding from Guards firing at it.)
- Stealing the HellCat is an offense, which can make keeping a Hellcat difficult (It's only possible to find a KG Zoomer parked and unattended)
- Large Target. The KG Cruiser is an easy target, and 'clips' a lot of other buildings, civilian's and their vehicles when is use.
HellCats are found driven by Krimzon Guards all over Haven City in Jak II, but in Jak 3, HellCats only make four appearances: when the palace is destroyed, when defending Ashelin at the Oasis, when getting to the KG War Factory, and when defending Sig, Torn and Jinx going to the Metal Head City.
