The Outlaw is one of the most well-rounded vehicles. Decent defense, good maneuverability, and turrets that automatically track targets also make it a fantastic choice for beginners.
Special: Turret with
Grenades (47 max)
Pressing R2 will prompt the auto-locking gunner to fire
continuously until the special runs out. If you repeatedly press R2 during this
time, he/she will also launch grenades. Really, there’s no reason not to mash
R2 for the duration the turret is firing. Pressing R3 changes targets. Press
down on the d-pad to fire behind you.
Alt Special: Turret
with Rockets (70 max)
This works just like the primary special, only it cannot be
fired behind you.
The Junkyard Dog is really only useful during team matches, where its alt special is a health taxi. In non-team games, the health taxi turns into an underwhelming weapon.
Special: Taxi Toss
Press R2 once to spawn a dragging taxi behind your vehicle.
Press R2 again to launch the taxi forward. You can also launch it backwards by
pressing down on the d-pad. You can deal a small amount of damage to enemies by
dragging the taxi into them, but this is hardly a useful tactic.
Alt Special (team
game): Health Taxi
In any team-based game, you can drop a health taxi for your friends
to pick up.
Alt Special (non-team
game): Shockwave Taxi (20, 60 stage 2)
This turns your taxi into a remote bomb (R2 to detonate)
with a very wide radius. If you let it sit until it reaches stage 2, the damage
output increases. It may not seem like a lot, but you can catch multiple
vehicles in the blast. Beware that you can damage yourself as well, and if you
hit an enemy directly with your taxi toss, the bomb will automatically
detonate. As such, don’t forget that you can set it down behind you by pressing
down on the d-pad.
The Juggernaut is a massive, hulking semi truck that is extremely slow, but its turbo boost ram can deal a whopping 100 damage. However, the only time this truck truly shines is during team games, when teammates can drive inside your cab and take control of the extremely powerful rocket turrets. The Juggernaut’s driver can only control its mines, making the vehicle nearly useless for solo missions.
Special: 8 Mines (25
Press R2 once to deploy the mines, then again to launch them
forward. Press down on the d-pad to drop them behind you. Given how slow
Juggernaut is, this is a fantastic weapon for shaking off pursuers.
