Abyss Crawler is a third generation Hexa Gear developed by the Liberty Alliance. The model was designed for the purpose of exploring and capturing closed off areas such as underground tunnels. Unlike the other third generation Hexa Gear, Abyss Crawler is a bipedal unit that has a Zoatex mode, which is always in operation. At the dawn of the war, the central regions of several cities were attacked by non-humanoid Hexa Gear known as Hidestorm. In the surveys conducted after the attacks, several abandoned underground facilities and tunnels that were used in the Hidestorm invasion were rediscovered, making excavation an urgent necessity. Until that time, most geographical information about these underground constructions had been lost, causing the facilties to fall under the control of the Valiant Force's Hexa Gear and droids. Using Hidestorm's VIC blades, the Valiant Force was able to inflict electronic warfare on the Liberty Alliance, cutting off communications between the cities from underground. The Liberty Alliance recognized the need to clean the polluted underground areas, and created a squadron of Hexa Gear in order to serve this purpose. Abyss Crawler was developed using the remaining parts of broken Hidestorm models that were confiscated after the attack. However, the developers were not able to recreate the VIC blades, and instead settled for the next-best countermeasure; the Invasion Counter Shield (ICS) installed on the left arm. Due to the lack of suitable parts, the number of models produced is limited, and the small existing squadron of units was sent underground. Compared to the areas above ground, there are innumerable heavily polluted regions underground in an area known as the level six "Abyss" due to the operation of the crystal reactors. Abyss Crawler resides on this level, trudging through the sludge and refuse without human contact, occasionally stopping to engage in battles against Hidestorm and small droid units.
