Meat Wagon is a vehicle featured in Twisted Metal (2012) . Meat Wagon is a 1960's Miller Meteor ambulance and has a rather humorous, yet creative, special weapon: a terminally-ill patient strapped with TNT on a rocket propelled gurney.
Meat Wagon's primary special attack is a homing gurney, which can be launched from the front or behind. The secondary special is similar, however, the player can guide the gurney manually to hit a target where it will detonate on impact or remotely detonate it to inflict splash damage.
- It's very likely that Meat Wagon is a tribute to "Ozone", a vehicle featured in the 1998 car combat game "Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012" (developed by Single-Trac), which was also an 1960's Miller Meteor ambulance.
- Coincidentally, Meat Wagon shares the same name of the "Oscar Mayer"-esque hot dog truck vehicle also featured in "Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012".
- It strongly resembles the Ecto-1 from the Ghostbusters movies.
- According to some early concept art, Meat Wagon was originally set to be a modern-day medical ambulance.
- "Meat Wagon" is a slang term for ambulance. It stems from the fact that early ambulances, which were based on car chassis rather than van chassis, often had a high death rate due to the fact that medical equipment back then was primitive compared to the medical equipment standard on today's medical ambulances.
