Meat Wagon is a vehicle featured in Twisted Metal (2012). Meat Wagon is a 1959 Cadillac 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.

Meat Wagon is unlocked by completing Mr. Grimm's first event in Story Mode.

Trivia

  • 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 SingleTrac), 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.
  • TwistedMetal 22

    Meat Wagon Concept Art

    According to some early concept art, Meat Wagon was originally set to be a modern-day medical ambulance. It is unknown why the change was made. It's possible that the original body shape would've resembled Sweet Tooth.
  • "Meat Wagon" is a slang term for ambulance. It stems from the fact that early ambulances, which were based on car chassis rather than a 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.
  • Meat Wagon and Road Boat have the same amount of health (210 HP).
