It makes great use of crushing oncoming vehicles; even if it triggers the explosion from the opposing vehicle via crushing its engine.

To say you wasted $1,000,000 on buying it from Warstock Cache & Carry.

if they buff it to be as strong and fast as the tank, then i'll be driving that thing nonstop

right now its just retardedly pointless as a single bomb destroys the huge thing, the wheels are able to be shot out, and its slow as sh*t. not to mention the windows aren't even bullet proof and you can only use guns from the drivers seat

It's for fun, I already bought when someone gifted cash. I don't use it much, it's not a bad vehicle.

Well. Its mostly for fun.. I stack the dump truck with Sticky Bombs, and then just leave it on the middle of the street.. And just wait for someone to get on it.. When I first did it, there was a couple of friends, one with a Cargobob and the others on cars.. So the Cargobob guy picked the cars up with like 4 people in each car, and placed them on the back of the dump truck... BOOM THEY WENT! :evilgrin:

Just for fun. It's a missed opportunity that you can't actually dump stuff on people/cars. If you could, I would dump buckets of dirt onto people's cars while they're shopping at Suburban :)

I use it to f*ck up other people's vehicles by driving it slowly over either the front or the rear, if you know how to pull it off, you can break off the tires, making the vehicle useless.

Works with tanks aswell, it's even easier with it...

 

It's also a nice bait, I park it somewhere near many players and put a sticky on it.... you know what happens after some minutes ;)

As far as I know I thought the really huge tires like that were solid rubber arent they? They should be completely bullet and puncture proof. The amount of steel and wieght in those trucks is immense and justly should be going very slow...but nothing short of several stickies or multiple RPGs should be able to disable it. Basically the vehicle should for all intensive purposes been a battering ram moving in slow motion. Everyone could run circles around it or just get off main streets to easily avoid it...but anything in its way would be flattened.

It's obviously thrown in there as a spoof of this being a "sandbox" game. And who hasn't rocked one of these in a real sandbox?

You mean to tell me that RockStar filled the game with subtle hints of humor and hidden messages that reflect upon the depth of society's neurosis?

I thought this game was just about killing things?

Those days are over my friend. It's been safe, sterile, and rounded non-swallowable plastic ever since these post 90's, soft-headed babies entered the world.

Unfortunately as a society we've chosen to save the few, in the short term (a select handful of dawin-award winner children)... at the expense of exposing the many to the long term effects of cancerous carcinogens.

Culling the herd is a cruel job often done by nature though, so I can't really blame humanity's heart for bleeding it's way into these conundrums.

Oh FFS, kill 'em all let God give 'em haircuts!

Never had the crane myself redfirebird87. That would have been cool. I do have the articulating loader though. Still got both of them. Had em since 5 ish so getting close to 30 years old now. Funny to think I have toys older than most posters here. :p

High_Pockets... Oh so true. Times have well and truly changed and I don't think its necessarily for the better either. We wrap the kids in cotton balls nowadays. How are they going to learn if we hold their hand with everything and dont let them make mistakes or learn the hard way. Anyway thats a topic for another day.

 

kill 'em all let God give 'em haircuts ... Where did that come from. I have heard it before but not sure where. Movie line or something?

Block the main LSC shutters with it and then blow it up so nobody can move it. Put passive mode on and watch the hilarity commence.

Breaking off the tires makes the vehicle faster. A lot faster!

It's quite a bit of fun for police chases. You get a group of your friends on the top of it and drive around the city. Just be careful of street lights.

It's fun to mess with, but too expensive. I'll eventually buy it.
