As well as being used as a weapon, the Crowbar has the ability to bust open many things such as padlocks, sewer grates, and shutters. In missions that involve around Firearms, the Crowbar isn't necessary to get past padlocks, as they can be shot off. However, the Crowbar is more silent.
ManhuntEditIn Manhunt, the Crowbar first appears during Doorway into Hell when Cash comes across a padlocked gate and must kill one of the Hoods that is holding the Crowbar, and take it from him. It is also used by many other Hoods following this. Once Cash reaches Carcer City Zoo, he must find a Crowbar inside the bear pen to access deeper into the zoo.
It appears a few more times when padlocks block the path, however it isn't needed as by this stage in the game, they can be shot off. Although it is less noisy using the Crowbar.
Manhunt 2EditOnce inside the Cortex Storage building, Leo uses the Crowbar to open many shutters as he searches for his and Danny's files.
During Ghosts, it is carried by a few Watchdogs. Danny must use one to get into his old house. Then it makes appearances in the Pervs dungeon and in Daniel's Safe House. When Danny is running away from the Bloodhounds, he uses a Crowbar to open a trap door and escape a workshop he is trapped in. Later it is used to open an air vent cover to access the Project Laboratories.
When Danny battles Leo inside his mind, Danny must execute Leo, who is carrying a Crowbar.
