"Look bud, I've killed them all!"
—Cousin Eddy, Twisted Metal: Head-On

Cousin Eddy appears in Twisted Metal: Head-On. He serves as a mid-level boss, but is unlocked when the player beats him. His vehicle is a built-from-scratch RV.

Twisted Metal: Head-OnEdit

Cousin Eddy enters the tournament as an uninvited guest, having seen the destruction and "shiny things" that were so prevalent in the contest. He is fought as a mid-boss after completing either France or Egypt, battled in Los Angeles; defeating him unlocks him for gameplay. Cousin Eddy is equipped with a missile gun instead of a regular default machine gun, similar to Warhawk from Twisted Metal: Black.

Character BioEdit

Car: 1972 Ford Condor II 'RV/Cousin Eddy'

Driver: Cousin Eddy

Age: 29

Height: 183 cm (6 ft.)

Weight: 136 kg (299.829 lbs)

Tales from the Tape:


Special Weapon 1: The RV gets a dramatic speed boost and rams into any enemy in its path. Similar to Darkside.

Special Weapon 2: A jet of flame homes in on vehicles that are nearby. It is similar to Thumper's special weapon.


Boss FightEdit

Cousin Eddy and The Boys

Initially, Cousin Eddy deploys four ATVs to attack the player and erects an impenetrable force field around his own vehicle. After the ATVs are destroyed, the force field is deactivated, and Eddy breaks through his driver side window while summoning the help of his "boys", five of them appearing through the remaining windows armed with shotguns and the sixth on top of the vehicle manning the top-mounted flamethrower.

In order to complete this phase of the fight, the player must kill all six hillbillies; two on each of the RV's sides, one on the back, and one manning the top-mounted flamethrower. Each hillbilly's health can be determined by the glowing window behind or below them; as they take damage, the light goes from green to yellow to red before disappearing when the respective goon dies.

After all six of his flunkies are defeated, Cousin Eddy can be damaged and destroyed like a regular vehicle. His attacks are limited to his rockets (replacing a normal vehicle's machine guns) and ramming the player; although both are fairly powerful, keeping at a distance will greatly hamper their effectiveness.

TriviaEdit

  • Cousin Eddy is seen with a big row of stiches on his forehead. it is possible he underwent a lobotomy.
  • Cousin Eddy may be a replacement to Minion in Head-On. This was likely done because Outlaw would have had to kill Minion to win Twisted Metal 2's tournament (recall that Head-On is the proper sequel to Twisted Metal 2.)
  • On Cousin Eddy's profile, his car is called RV, though when the player views his ending or vehicle, it displays his name instead.
  • Cousin Eddy is named after the character from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
  • He is another built-from-scratch vehicle after Roadkill and Piecemeal.
  • In story mode, his "buddy's shotgun" attacks can go through some surfaces like, for example, the highway, so it's useless to glitch him. (This is when he has his shield on, with at least one of his side buddies in the windows).
  • Instead of regular machine guns like the other vehicles, Cousin Eddy has a missile gun that shoots smoking missiles instead of bullets.
  • After defeating all four ATVs, Cousin Eddy breaks the driver window and shouts, "Whoo! Come on boys! Let's get 'em!". In Twisted Metal Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition for the PS2, this audio has been removed for unknown reasons.
