    "Today, in the most dire of times, we Crusaders choose not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today we face the aliens at our doors once again. Today, we take the fight to them. No Crusader stands alone. Today, we cancel another apocalypse."

    ~President Billy Smithsonian

    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Alien Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop.
