From The Vault

Vehicles and Mechanical Vehicles, especially those running on petrol, are generally rare in the Fallout Universe. The most common means of transport are brahmin carts. The super mutant army is also said to have used some steam-powered trucks.

The Great War was fought mainly for resources. The last resources remaining were probably depleted in the war itself. Without resources, vehicles couldn't be driven anymore. Furthermore, it is generally accepted that after the war, much of the human knowledge was lost. The knowledge of how to tend to the high tech fusion cars that existed before the war was lost, and with it the necessary skills to repair the cars. This does not mean that there are no old vehicles that have been kept funtional OR that someone out in the wastes could not have invented/innovated their own vehicles, but such instances are extremely rare outside of technologically advanced groups

(id est: groups that have overcome the struggle for basic survival and can put resources towards

researching old/new technologies).

Fallout 1

There were no drivable vehicles in Fallout but many vehicles can be seen as a Fuel Truck, many varieties of cars or a Nuka-Cola Truck.

Vehicles Seen

Fallout 2

Fallout 2 featured a fully working car, the Highwayman, and high tech flying machines, known as Vertibirds. It is also mentioned that the NCR military includes mechanized forces, though this could also refer to any soldiers equipped with Power Armor. Given the presence of car mechanics in NCR and a car chop-shop in New Reno, it is probable that some form of automobile was present in the NCR's mechanized units.

Fallout 3

In Fallout 3, there are no drivable vehicles, although there are hundreds of highly explosive, derelict vehicles that will explode violently a short while after being damaged. When a vehicle explodes, the resulting explosion can cause other vehicles close to it to explode causing a deadly chain reaction. This particularly happens in drive-ins and on highways. There are also Enclave-controlled Vertibirds. They appear at Raven Rock and on random encounters occupied by squads of Enclave soldiers. In the Add on Broken Steel the player can visit the interior of the Brotherhood of Steel's unique vertibird, which they have captured.

It is also conceivable that once civilization has recovered enough in a given area that vehicles beyond brahmin carts will appear. These vehicles could be restored pre-war machines or they could be some form of steam-powered machines.

Strangely, most vehicles appear to be run on nuclear fusion as most of them have an exhaust at the back (specifically buses) that say "Warning: Radiation" on them. However, it is not known if vehicles are run on just nuclear fusion or on petroleum with nuclear fusion. On inspection of an apparent fueling station with a red rocket on the roof in Springvale (Close to Vault 101 and Megaton), on the ground there are manhole covers with a warning sign located beside them stating "Danger, Petroleum". However, they are probably fusion cars, since gas powered cars don't produce radiation and no other power sources are ever mentioned (fusion and gas), at least not in such numbers. It has also been mentioned that due to the small numbers of natural resources that remained before the Great War, there was an increase in pressure in the production of Fusion cars. Due to the small resources remaining, and their cost, only a small number of Fusion cars were produced, and with a high price tag. However, they apparently were sold straight away despite the price, as people may not have had any transport due to petroleum being too scarce to use in automobiles.

In Fallout 3 DLC, the Player is required to use a tram cart to enter and exit The Pitt, which is can be assumed is either automated or the tunnels leading to The Pitt contain only one set of tracks, as the reason given for using the tram is that the tunnels are too dark and numerous to ever navigate on foot.

The Player also can ride an underground sub way train in the Presidential Metro during the main questline of the Broken Steel add-on.

The PC is also able to take ride on the ruined pre war ferry, the Duchess Gambit, as a means of entering or exiting Point Lookout. The ferry is captained by Tobar originaly but changes hands as the main questline of the DLC progresses. The PC is required to sleep in a cabin on the main deck to start the journey to or from Point Lookout but is treated to a short cut scene where the view from the ferry as it docks is watched when entering Point Lookout for the first time.

Vehicles Seen

Fallout Tactics

Fallout Tactics featured many vehicles that the player could operate. The cars in the game do not appear to actually use gas as there are no emissions of any kind. Also, Fallout Tactics is set in what is the heart land of the automotive industry, giving some argument to the plausible presence of functioning vehicles. The vehicles are also used exclusively by the Brotherhood of Steel, who would have the technical know-how to get vehicles functioning.

However, since there are still untouched reserves of pre-war tech (like the Sierra Army Depot), it is reasonable to assume that vehicles will continue to have a presence in the Fallout universe. If the Den is capable of keeping a fusion car from rotting, imagine what a more advanced town might have squirreled away.

An Ambulance in GTA San Andreas

Save lives in Ambulance Side Mission

The Ambulance hasn't evolved much during the Grand Theft Auto series. It has appeared in every GTA game except GTA2, where a paramedic car (the Medicar) is featured instead. Ambulances are usually found outside hospitals, but will spawn on roads if multiple NPCs are killed, and two paramedics will revive the dead.

Paramedic side-missions can be activated when in the ambulance in all GTA III era games. These require the player to find, pick up and deliver patients to the hospital within a time limit. The difficulty increases with every level. Rewards (eg infinite sprint or extra health) are granted for achieving level 12. The mission is failed if the patient dies, the time limit runs out or the player leaves the ambulance for too long.

UNSC ground forces, Warthogs with Pelicans flying above.

The vehicles from the Halo universe, available in campaign and multiplayer gameplay, are a very important part of the game itself. Many different types of vehicles exist and are shown within the games. Many are playable in the Halo games, each with a different set of abilities and strengths.

Vehicles have distinct tactical advantages. They can be used to bombard enemy forces or placements, or similarly, to destroy enemy forces and overwhelm infantry. On a different note, they can provide support essential in skirmishes as well as give quick transport while simultaneously allowing the fire of powerful weapons in most cases.

Even though vehicles are powerful, they also have some disadvantages, such as not being able to fit in as tight areas that infantry can, be clearly seen and destroyed by enemy artillery or explosive small-arms fire, and finally, can be hijacked.

Contents

Gameplay

In gameplay, only a small number of very unique vehicles are drivable and controllable, most operating in a similar fashion, allowing driving (navigation) and control of mounted weaponry (attack), though some allow one to do both simultaneously or only provide one of the two. Such weapons usually have unlimited ammunition available, whether they are human (ballistic-based) or Covenant (plasma-based).

When the player enters a vehicle by climbing into driving, weapons or passenger seats, the camera switches from a first-person to a third-person view. This improves peripheral vision and the bird's eye view makes it easier to drive around, with nearby terrain easily fitting into view. When the player has control of weaponry while been driven around in a vehicle, either hand-held weapons (usable while in passenger seats) or mounted weapons (usable while in turret seats), a stylized aiming reticule is displayed much like when in first-person view, locked to the center of the screen and replacing the typical arrow cursor.

The player is allowed to use vehicles from either of the two primary races, human or Covenant, often turning the Covenant's usually superior firepower against itself. Playable human vehicles are typically grounded, and unable to fly. Almost every playable Covenant vehicle has the capability to overcome gravity to some degree, and hover or even fly around. The majority of spacecraft and aircraft can be seen in cutscenes, though the player cannot control or affect them in any way.

UNSC vehicles are usually named after animals (such as the Warthog or Pelican), while Covenant vehicles are mostly named after supernatural beings (such as the Ghost or Phantom); with the exception of large land units being named after insects (such as the Scarab or Locust). Halo: CE is the only game where vehicles cannot be destroyed unless its part of the game (campaign) or glitches/mods.

Allied

UNSC and Covenant vehicles are made available in campaign levels (depending on which side the player character is on, UNSC/Covenant), when the player needs to infiltrate or cut through enemy-held territory.

Either kept unused, waiting for a driver or allowing the player's character (Master Chief, The Arbiter, The Elites, or the ODST's.) to switch with a friendly unit, the player may enter it without meeting any resistance and take control of it. Alternatively the player may enter unoccupied mounted turrets.

Enemy

Since UNSC Vehicles are rarely available within campaign levels, it is a common practice to kill the driver of Covenant vehicles in order to hijack them. Although it is relatively easy to kill its driver from afar with careful sniping, the preferred approach is known as "boarding", and consists of:

  1. Boarding an enemy vehicle when near its rear or seating area.
  2. Cutting through its defenses by throwing frag grenades, sticking plasma grenades/spike grenades onto its armor plating or burning your way through with some fire bomb grenades.
  3. Killing the driver by melee attacks (available with any player character) or more grenades.
  4. Jumping down from the now disabled vehicle, which automatically grinds to a halt without its driver.
  5. Climbing into its driver seat as usual, since the fallen driver's body would have fallen out of the vehicle.

This procedure may also be followed while in multiplayer gameplay, to take control of UNSC or Covenant vehicles controlled by members of opposing teams.

Vehicles that have been stopped by sheer firepower by destroying or disabling them cannot be taken control of. With vehicles such as the Ghost and Banshee, the boarding procedure is simpler. You can board it, throw the driver off, and in most cases automatically assume control of the vehicle, all in one quick action.

Multiplayer

Certain vehicles can be driven in multiplayer levels. Vehicles can be very useful in Slayer and Skirmish gametypes. In Capture the Flag, once the player character has picked up the flag, the character cannot drive a vehicle or take control of its weaponry, though the character may ride in a vehicle driven by another character. Certain maps allow vehicles can be added in by players, before the start of the game.

Types

In the Halo universe five different types of vehicles exist. The first four consisting of ground vehicles: Light, Medium, Heavy, and Giant. The last type consists of all Aerial vehicles. Each has different strengths, weaknesses and purposes, which help to ultimately decide which vehicle to use in which situation. Some vehicles are unusable in the Halo games, but can be available for use with the use of modified game content.

Light Vehicles

A Covenant Ghost.
A UNSC Warthog.

Light vehicles are usually used to travel for short distances along with fighting infantry units. They are agile and are usually equipped with small weaponry types. They usually carry up to four passengers. Some have light weaponry and armor which means they can be vulnerable to heavy weaponry, or leave the passengers and driver badly exposed to small arms fire.

Covenant
  • Ghost - Recon/Rapid Assault Vehicle - Usable in Halo: CE, 2, 3, ODST and Halo Wars.
  • Brute Prowler - Light Recon Vehicle - Usable in Halo 3.
  • Brute Chopper - Rapid Assault Vehicle - Usable in Halo 3, ODST, and Halo Wars.
  • Spectre - Light Recon Vehicle - Usable in Halo 2.
UNSC
  • M274 Mongoose ULATV - Ultra Light Recon Vehicle - Usable in Halo 3 and ODST.
  • M12 Warthog LRV - Light Recon Vehicle - Usable in Halo: CE , 2, 3, ODST, and Halo Wars.
  • M12A1 Warthog LAAV - Light Anti-Armor Vehicle - Usable in Halo PC.
  • M12G1 Warthog LAAV - Light Anti-Armor Vehicle - Usable in Halo 2, 3, ODST, and Halo Wars.
  • M831 TT - Light Troop Transport Vehicle - Usable in Halo 3, ODST.

Medium Vehicles

Medium vehicles are a midway point between the recon prowess and agility of the light vehicles and the hard hitting power of heavy vehicles, without matching tanks in fire power. Medium vehicles will usually take more damage before destruction, and will provide better defense for the driver and passengers. They are usually larger than light vehicles, and will often carry heavy support weaponry.

Covenant
  • Shadow - Armored Personnel Carrier - "Unusable", Turret Usable (Halo 2)
UNSC
  • Wolverine - Self Propelled Anti-Aircraft Artillery - Usable in Halo Wars.
  • Cobra - Anti-Vehicle/Fortification Artillery - Usable in Halo Wars.
  • Gremlin - Combat Support Vehicle - Usable in Halo Wars
  • Cyclops - Bipedal Exoskeleton - Usable in Halo Wars

Heavy Vehicles

A Covenant AA Wraith.
A UNSC Scorpion tank.

Heavy vehicles are designed to smash foes to pieces and crush the enemy beneath their treads. They usually feature powerful weapons and heavy armor for destroying enemy vehicles and protecting themselves from retribution. They are often slow and are often restricted by terrain.

Covenant
  • Wraith - Self Propelled Artillery - Usable in Halo 2, 3,ODST and Halo Wars.
  • AA Wraith - Anti-Air version of the Wraith - Usable through a glitch in Halo 3, seen in ODST.
  • Locust - Anti-building unit - Usable in Halo Wars.
UNSC
  • M808 Scorpion MBT - Main Battle Tank - Usable in Halo: CE, 2, 3, ODST, and Halo Wars.
  • Grizzly - An upgraded version of the Scorpion - Usable in Halo Wars.
  • Rhino - Long range plasma tank - Usable in two Halo Wars levels.
  • Fox Cannon - Artillery vehicle - Halo Wars concept

Giant Vehicles

A Covenant Scarab.

The heaviest of vehicles that are designed for functions as big as their sizes. They are however rarely suited for proper combat situations. They will carry defenses, such as defensive gun emplacements and turrets, but will usually be vulnerable in heavy combat circumstances.

Covenant
  • Scarab - Assault Vehicle - Unusable in Halo 2, 3, and ODST. Usable in Halo Wars.
UNSC
  • Elephant - Mobile command post/Search and Recovery/Personnel Transport - Usable in Halo 3 (only on the multiplayer level "Sandtrap") and Halo Wars, though in Halo Wars it is a much smaller troop transport version and not the massive vehicle repair variant. The Elephant also appears in the last level of Halo 3: ODST as a garbage truck variant.

Aerial Vehicles

A Covenant Banshee.
A Covenant Phantom.
A UNSC Pelican.
F-99 Drone Fighter

Aerial vehicles are often designed for ground support purposes, but are equipped to defend themselves from other vehicles. Aerial vehicles usually only have two weapons - an anti-infantry based weapon, and a heavier type of weaponry, usually missile or rocket based. This is due to the vehicle often needing to be light to be air-worthy.

Covenant
  • Banshee - Covenant ground assault aircraft - Usable in Halo: CE, 2, 3, ODST, and Halo Wars.
  • Heretic Banshee - The Heretic version of the Banshee - Usable in Halo 2.

  • Transport Hornet - a Hornet without missiles and a slower machine gun. Usable in the Halo 3 maps "Avalanche" and "Sandbox".
  • Pelican - UNSC troop transport aircraft - Usable in Halo Wars, but ride-able and flippable through glitches in the Halo Trilogy.
  • Longsword - UNSC starfighter ship - Appears in the Halo trilogy and usable by hacking.

For fan theories about these unanswered questions, see: Portal:Transportation/Theories
  • If Michael and Walt were able to leave the Island via The Others' Boat, then why can't Jack and Juliet leave the Island aboard the Elizabeth sailboat, or even the trawler, after the destruction of the submarine?
  • Why are some people apparently able to come and go at will (Ben pre moving the island, Richard, Tom, Ethan)?
  • Why is it so difficult for some people (Desmond) to leave the island?
  • Why is it easy for some (Ben pre island moving, Richard, Tom, Ethan) to return to the island but so hard for some (Penny, Charles Widmore, Jack prior to getting help from Eloise) to get to or find the island?
  • How did Locke's father get to the island?
  • Why didn't the O6 and the rest of the Ajira passengers arrive at the same place/time?
  • If Ben had a means of coming and going from the island pre-moving, why couldn't he use that means to return to the island once he'd moved it?
  • Were all the Losties difficulties leaving the island (raft, sub, and freighter all blown up, Desmond sailing in circles, helicopter crashing, Sawyer ditching, Jin stuck on freighter, Juliet strung out by Ben) all coincidence, all merely plot devices to sustain viewer interest, or were they part of a purposeful plan on the part of the Island?

SWG Wiki

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From SWG Wiki

Vehicles are incredibly beneficial to players as they are faster than mounts and are a great way of getting around. Currently there are more than 40 different player-controlled vehicle types known to exist in the game, but not every vehicle type is accessible to every player. While many of the vehicles can be crafted by engineers, others are available only through quests or as special rewards. Many vehicles offer a form of mounted protection that grants the player a bonus to ranged weapon avoidance while riding.

For all of their benefits, vehicle ownership can sometimes be a burden, especially if you own one of the game's rare vehicles. Vehicles can become damaged when combat is initiated on them. While both PCs and NPCs can cause vehicle damage, NPCs will usually only damage a vehicle if their attacks are grenade-based. In addition, creatures have also been known to cause damage to vehicles. Once a vehicle has become damaged (without being disabled), it can be repaired at any Parking Garage for a nominal fee. To repair a vehicle, select it and access the radial menu; a repair option will appear.

The amount of damage each vehicle can take is different for each type, but universally, when a vehicle reaches zero condition, it becomes disabled. A vehicle that has been disabled cannot be used again until it is repaired with a Vehicle Restoration Kit, or restored at a garage for specific vehicles. Restoration kits are often difficult to find and are usually quite expensive; they are mostly reserved for the repair of valuable or rare vehicles.

Some vehicles have the ability to hold multiple people. If a person is in the same group as the driver of a multi-person vehicle, they can enter the vehicle by selecting it, accessing the radial menu, and choosing the 'Enter/Exit Vehicle' command.
