5 of The Best Missions In The Warriors (2005)



To press the rewind button, The Warriors (1979) is based on Sol Yurick’s 1965 novel The Warriors. The Warriors (2005) published by Rockstar Games, is an underrated game, based on the 1979 cult film of the same title. In 2009, The Warriors: Street Brawl, was released. Later that year, it was when Dabel Brothers Publishing launched The Warriors comic book series. Then, they released a 4-issue series called Jailbreak on what happen after the ending of the movie. Now, The Warriors comic is published by Dynamite. 

When a New York gang is framed for murdering Cyrus (a crime boss), The Warriors are left to fight off rival gangs. Their destination is from the northern Bronx to Coney Island (their home turf). While The Warriors (2005) action-adventure, survival game is brilliantly like the film, it remains one of Rockstar’s most forgotten games. There are chase sequences in 3D environments and large-scale brawling to get your adrenaline rushing.

5. Friendly Faces: 

An all-female gang called the Lizzies try to seduce Rembrandt, Cochise, and Vermin, (in the seventeenth mission) at the Union Square. It was just a decoy, but imagine if it was not? Always keep your guards up, no matter what, but then again, you may be called paranoid. 

4. Blackout: 

Darien, (the soldier of the Baseball Furies) wears black and purple war paint. After Cyrus’s death, Darien is out for vengeance against the accused Warriors. Darien appears in (the fourth mission) Blackout, where Riverside erupted in a riot. You have to escape before you get busted by the authoritative cops. While you and your gang access the train, there is a blackout.  

The Warriors riot with gangs like the Rogues, Moonrunners, Panzers, and Savage Huns, then make their way back to Coney Island. This is where the Baseball Furies arrive, chasing them to the train. Snow, Ash, and Vermin actually access the train back to Coney. Darien even appears in (the  sixteenth mission) Home Run, where after the Warriors attempt to escape the cops, they once again run encounter The Baseball Furies. Gratefully, when Swan and Ajax arrive, they eliminate a large group of Furies.
