Who do you generally use for multiplayer? 

I used to use Axel a lot when the game first came out, because I got him as a pre order bonus and he was one of my favorite vehicles to use since TM2, other than Spectre.  After using Axel quite a bit, I started using Roadboat a lot.  He was a little sluggish for my liking, but he packed a lot of power.  Before my PS3 stopped reading discs, I would use Crimson Fury, and surprisingly I didn't do TOO bad, but I had WAY more assists than kills.

What about you guys?

I first started using RoadBoat a lot when it first came out. Pretty much fell in love with him when I killed an enemy in less than 10 seconds of myself spawning with both of us at full health... At least for that moment  Roll Eyes other than him, though, I like to use Axel as well. Always nice to be able to jump over your confused contenders haha

Probably either Roadboat or Roadkill. Roadkill handles perfectly, but his special is just blegh and his armor is a tad too low for my taste. I'm trying to learn Death Warrant to replace Roadkill, but it just isn't working out. His special is just as bad as Roadkill's, only it is weaker.

First vehicle I used was Death Warrant, because when I first got my PS3 there was no Internet Connection so I couldn't download Axel, but once I downloaded I played with him only for quite a while, but then i switched to Roadkill and had some pretty amazing moments with it, so I mained Roadkill now, it's just sad how low the armor of RK is, and it's pretty much annoying how it consumes turbo real fast but still won't go that fast.

No matter what, Roadkill is my babe.

I would use Roadkill a lot more, but how the hell do you use the zoomy rockets?  Do you let go of R2 when the bar is full, and then quickly hold it again?  Because that never works for me.  lmao

You let go of R2 when the bar is in the red zone. Do it once, and you get regular rockets, do it twice and you get Blood Missiles.

So first fill up is chain gun, second fill up is zoomy rockets, and third time is blood missiles?  I did not know this...

I apologize for replying so late, have you watched Twisted Metal University vids?

There you go

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSYBwEcgG4Q

Roadkill part starts at around 2:29
and just a tip I got from SirCrush, when the meter is red at level 3, wait until the very final second before backfiring, then release it, that would be level 4 with more missiles and damage that can reach up to 120.
It'll take a lot of training to reach the point of pulling all 120 easily, I'm still training on that.

Hope I helped (:

Damn, I almost forgot about those TMU videos! In my days of being a young, spry TMX player, these videos were very informative. I mean, I would've never known how Death Warrant works without seeing the tutorial on Roadkill's fucking awesome special. I realize now that learning the steep curve of TMX made me so excited when I got my first killstreak that I'm semi positive that I made a noise similar to that of a geese being punched in the tummy.

TMU, huh?  I just figured that playing TM all my life I'd already know how to control every vehicle, but I suppose not.  I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks...

So, Roadboat
     Roadboat
     Roadboat
     Roadkill
     Meatwagon

Nice.

Originally I used Roadkill. Beautiful vehicle. I either painted him grayish rust like he usually was or all black. Sadly, I gave up on Roadkill because he's just too weak. Even with the buff. All it did for me was let me drive around with a sliver of health instead respawing. Which saved some lives...unfortunately that doesn't matter though. So now I use Death Warrant. He's fun but I've resorted to basically not having a special. Unless I run out of weapons. I almost always have specials at least.

I still might switch mid game to score some good damage, then switch back when everyone thinks I'm using one of the weakest vehicles and fool them.

I've been playing a bit of online recently, and I am starting to favor Crimson Fury and Kamikaze.  I like the focus of hit and run, and with their speeds, it's nice to go around the map and pick up powerful missiles, and then drive through the map and unload.  It's really nice, and when I start struggling then I switch to Vermin.

Sorry if I upset anyone by pointing out that people are using mostly large vehicles. I shouldn't rag on anyone's ride. I apologize, but that guy got a 8 killstreak with Meatwagon first time playing online! C'MON there's something wrong with that. Also, you know there's something wrong when the same issue keeps coming up, and not just by me. Whatever, I still play the game. No hard feelings.
