BEHOLD...THE JUGGERNAUT!!!!


I LOVE this image and I LOVE this vehicle!

Scott and I have been wanting a semi with trailer in a Twisted Metal game since we worked on the first title back in 1995! We finally got it!

And not only did we get it! But we got it and THEN some!!! Check it out:

Juggernaut lets your teammates drive their vehicles inside the BACK of the damn trailer and then man weapons attached to the top of the trailer! All while the driver of Juggernaut is busy ramming the hell out of the bad guys! But be careful cause if you open your trailer doors to let your buddies inside, ANY SHOT that lands INSIDE the trailer does 2.5X damage!

God, I love this vehicle! :)

Thanks to Donald and Kellan at Eat Sleep Play for grabbing this amazing screen!

ps. And yes, if you are wondering, we limit the number of Juggernaut's a team can use in ranked team games. So for Nuke, your team only gets 1 Juggernaut for the whole game. So it's best if your coordinate with your team to decide if you wanna use him as transport or offensively or defensively or at the opening, mid, or end game...Same logic will apply to other 'class like' vehicles such as Talon (the helicopter) and Junkyard Dog (the medic)...For unranked games you can turn this logic off and have- for the most part- as many of these vehicle types as you like...

Over at TMA we think we've spotted Hammerhead as well :)

Looking very cool.

Not looking for a confirmation of course...

Just gotta hope your Jug driver doesn't plunge you all off a cliff eh? :)

I think with Jaffe giving it the official 'Juggs' thats all its gonna be from now on.

I'm hoping DJ/ESP can talk about the separate cab (Darkside?) soon?

I'm curious whether it's classed as a separate vehicle or if you can blow the trailer off Jugger...I mean Juggs?

Fuck yeah bring in the Juggs!!!!

Really glad there is only one Juggernaut per match. Great choice. Looking forward to giving this behemoth a ride in a little under three months!

Keep it up DJ! And Grasshopper, that'd be hilarious. Get a punch of people together and they are taken off a cliff by the driver. Funny as hell.

Imagine this:

You get a guy on one team (but he's secretly batting for the other).

He takes a Jugger and drives around the level.

When he gets 2 passengers he deliberately drives off a cliff to deprive his team of lives (remember he's a double agent).

Call it a Q-Jugger

With the box art blog entry early on mind, this is one hell of an image to toy around with. Has the epicness part nailed and also the car-combat part. Looking at it again I just noticed the two cars battling it out in the background.

@Archminion Well in seriousness, I've seen in some footage that there is an option to leave Juggernaut, so maybe you don't have to wait for the driver to open the back. So if he tries to drive you off a cliff then it's a matter of realizing and pulling out.

But then again, how long is the animation to get out? Will you have enough time in such a situation? And that would require the back opening, so how would that be handled with the 2.5x damage and such? I don't know, all things I'm sure Jaffe and the rest of ESP have thought of.

can enemies drive into juggernauts trailer accidentally because juggernaut braked in front of the enemy, and then juggernaut can close the trailer and let the enemy go off a cliff or building?

Twitter died! Here's a link to the Avengers trailer that you were asking for. Warning though that it's cam quality not good.
