"We'll never get to him like this! We need more power. We need to go to 'hypercrate'."
―A Croteam Head discussing the need to go to 'hypercrate'.[src]

The Crate Bus was a flying "bus" filled with Croteam Heads. It crashed into the SSS Centerprice and was (presumably) responsible for crashing the ship in the first place.


A crate bus is a flying vehicle made from wooden crates which had Serious Sam's logo on it. The bus has a total of 24 seats. It also seems to have two parts; the first part has 7 seats on one side and the other has one 5. The crates are joined together with chains so they don't detach.

The crate bus is also capable of a turbo boost called "hypercrate" which could drastically increase the speed of the bus.


Serious Sam: The First EncounterEdit

In The First Encounter, The crates made their first appearance as a secret, but only as a crate car and a crate pyramid.

Serious Sam: The Second EncounterEdit

After Sam began to depart to Sirius, the Bigheads on the bus took flight to follow Sam Stone on his journey. When Sam's spaceship gained speed and they couldn't catch up, they decided to use "hypercrate" to speed up the crate bus, but when they were about to collide with Sam's spaceship, the brake to the crate bus had broke, thus it crashed on impact into Sam's spaceship.


  • Sam quotes at the secret destroyed Crate Bus in The Second Encounter's Sierra de Chiapas, "I hate crates!" This quote was a play-on from The Interview with Old Man Murray with Croteam's Roman Ribarić where Murray expresses his hatred towards the abundance of crates in FPSes at the time and jokes how Croteam did not understand what the word crate meant.
