Spintires: MudRunner – A-3151
Spintires: MudRunner is the ultimate version of the million-selling indie hit Spintires, releasing on October 31st this year on PC, and for the first time on PS4 and Xbox One.
Like Spintires before it, Spintires: MudRunner will put players in the driver’s seat of a variety of incredible all-terrain vehicles, venturing across extreme landscapes with only a map and compass as their guides.
In the lead-up to release, we plan to do a weekly presentation of the iconic vehicles from the game. That means that every Friday, you can expect a blog post describing a vehicle. This will also be a great place to ask questions about the vehicle specifically, how it handles, and the niche it fills.
The A-3151 is a fast off-road light utility vehicle, used by drivers that need a strong and reliable off-road vehicle, for getting around quickly. The speed of the A-3151 also lends itself to quick repairs and refuelling, when desperately needed. In Spintires: MudRunner, the A-3151 will be your source of vision, allowing you to scout out viable paths for your heavier vehicles, as well as driving quickly to watchtowers to provide vision for large areas of the map.
The A-3151 has a fuel capacity of 80L, and is able to take advantage of both all-wheel drive and differential lock, and is able to take up to 300 points of damage. The A-3151 costs only one balance point, and is an invaluable addition to your fielded vehicles, as a support vehicle providing valuable vision and emergency supplies.
The A-3151 uses very little fuel, and is very small, meaning it is able to fit between trees to get to difficult to reach places. It is fast and agile, for those steep turns, too. The A-3151 can also be recalled, which is a new mechanic to MudRunner, and allows the player to call the A-3151 to their current position, allow for quick scouting. The recalled vehicle will lose fuel in its addons, so this is not an easy way to refuel, either! The same is true for repair points!
The biggest problem with the A-3151 is that it can’t complete objectives. The A-3151 is simply there to support your other vehicles. You’ll also be unable to rescue stuck vehicles with it, as its pulling strength is quite low.
The A-3151 is quite a small vehicle, and so can only carry two attachments.
Spare Wheel – Can repair self
Trunk – Carries fuel and repair points.
