Tanker is an unplayable vehicle in Twisted Metal: Black. A smaller version of Minion, it has less health and has a weaker version of the flamethrower special weapon. It only appears in the final level of story mode. When defeated, the wreckage remains, and the player must shoot at it when Warhawk is overhead in order to damage its shield.
Driver: Unknown (Possibly SWAT team officers)
Special Weapon: A freeze missile followed by a flamethrower, effectively torching the target.
Special Weapon Power: 7/10
- Tanker seems to be similar in, if not the same, size to Minion when played as. This is because the Minion the player gets to play as is reduced in size.
- Tanker, like Minion, is a large tanker truck.
- Also like Minion, Tanker has a similar special as Minion does in Twisted Metal 2, Twisted Metal III, Twisted Metal 4.
- The player only has to take a portion of Tanker's health before Tanker enters a harmless damaged state, where the player must finish him off to cause damage to Warhawk's shield
