== Behaviour ==

==New Marais==
Cars are either parked or drive around Empire City at moderate speed (No speeding). If [[Cole MacGrath]] stands in front of a car, it will stop. This can cause massive roadblocks and congestion. Car A.I isn't top notch either because some cars simply drive around and around a city block (Find a car you can stand on and see). Unlike pedestrians cars aren't afraid of Cole and his big bad lightning. Also, a glitch allows one or more cars to drive through another vehicle.[[File:Infamous-20081219014159766_640w.jpg|thumb|392px]]

Cars are a form of transportation found in Empire City, New Marais and Seattle.

Empire CityEdit

See: Infamous

Cars can be found moving around Empire City, as well as parked at the sides of roads and in designated car parks. Cole MacGrath can climb on the hood and roofs of cars, but since the Ray Sphere blast, he is unable to sit in cars, due to the electricity within his body reacting to the cars fuel, causing it to explode. However, Cole is able to use Electromagnetic Shockwaves to effectively move cars around. Cars can also be used as a very good cover and as a method to overwhelm huge numbers of enemies by destroying the cars. Cars can additionally be used as a power source for Cole to drain electricity from.

There are only two types of civilian cars featured in Infamous which appear in different colors, as well as damaged cop cars and big trucks.

New MaraisEdit

Similarly in inFamous, Cole can use his shockwaves to move cars and deal massive damage to big numbers of enemies, as well as a huge amount of damage to advanced enemies such as Titans and Ravagers. Due to Cole's increased height, cars are not effective as covers as they were in Empire City. Cars can additionally be used as a power source for Cole to drain electricity from, but this does not provide much energy.
