The Corrupt are a team of cybernetic Liandri Grand Tournament competitors.


Overview Edit

The Corrupt are a human-built intelligent Robot faction who fight in the Liandri Grand Tournament, and owned by the Liandri Mining Corporation. The team is known for their leader, Xan Kriegor, the former champion of the Tournament. In Unreal Tournament 3 they're led by Matrix, formerly a highly enhanced Human, then a full-fledged robot.

Members all look robotic, but are based on diverse designs. Many were defeated and reprogrammed rebels from the LBX-7683 Robot Uprising. These were originally designed for mining and heavy labor. Others were originally built for advertisement or entertainment purposes; their designs were usually inspired by the human female shape. Some were designed to be warriors from the ground up.

Unreal Tournament Edit

"The Corrupt is Liandri's sponsored team entry in the Tournament. It is entirely made up of the best advanced AIs that the corporation's wealth can buy, and features the reigning Tournament Champion, Xan Kriegor, as its leader."
- Team description

The Corrupt were first introduced in UT99 as "war machines", though not represented as a proper team in the game, at least in the PC versions. Led by the Tournament champion Xan Kriegor, the members are highly efficient reprogrammed humanoid droids. They are often referred to as "War Machines" due to their lethal performance in the tournaments.

This version of the team appears as a fully-fledged team in the end of the ladders in the console versions of the game.

After a long hiatus, he has returned to lead the Liandri team, The Corrupt, back to the championship. Xan is sitting out the early rounds, which he perceives as beneath his attention."

Trivia Edit

  • The team is present, albeit in an unplayable (as in, the player can't select the team as their team of choice) form, in the first Tournament game's PC version, as the challengers the player will face in the Challenge ladder before fighting Xan. They are an unplayable team in the Console versions; the player will face the entire team at the end of each ladder, with the Challenge matches being replaced by individual 1on1 fights against the four bosses of the game.
  • Two Liandri robots (Raptor and Devastation) make playable appearances in Unreal Championship 2, though it's unknown if they're part of the team. It's also confirmed that the Blood Fist members Corrosion and Syzygy became part of Liandri, as of the DLC of UC2.
  • Nova is available on the PC and PS3 versions via the Titan Pack, and in the Xbox 360 version by default.
  • The binary code on OSC's description translates to "believe".
