―Description in Watch Dogs.

The MatarHorn Trucks Flatbed Truck is a vehicle that appears in Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2.

Design

Climbax Equipment Company (left) & Gabay Construction Ltd. variants (right)

The cab of the Flatbed Truck is based of the International DuraStar, judging by its "crescent shape" headlights and a distinctive "black spot" on the left side which is actually a secondary grill. Unlike the real Durastar where the main grill is vertical, the main grill of the truck is horizontal.

Whereas the name "Flatbed Truck" applied to multiple body styles applied to the same frame in Watch Dogs, the name now applies to an actual flatbed truck in Watch Dogs 2 (while the others are now considered variants), which has a fully-interactive platform that can be lowered to the ground, perfect for makeshift ramps. Rather than a horn, the truck also gains yellow LED lightbars that are only activated when the ramp is lowered. The Flatbed either spawn in Gabay Construction Ltd. (white/yellow) or Climbax Equipment Company (red) liveries.

Performance

The truck has average top speed and handling, but its acceleration is low. The durability of this vehicle, like various trucks, is high, allowing to withstand large amount of crashes. The 8-speed gearbox seems to be a rare use of an auxiliary gearbox in-game; a secondary gearbox working very similar to twin-geared bikes - the secondary gearbox having less gears than the primary gearbox, but giving the primary gearbox more potential by allowing a higher combination of gears. The exact same feature is found on the Cement Truck.

Locations

Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs 2

  • Depending on either the Climbax or Gabay variant, the vehicle can be seen roaming on the entire Bay Area, although they are more frequent on highways. This also implies to its variants
  • Parked at some gas stations.
  • Parked at Fury Track
  • Several Flatbeds are found in the St. Gianna Salt Farm.
  • Parked across the street from the Tezcas gang hideout underneath the highway leading to the Bay Bridge. Its also located across from the bus depot.

Trivia

  • The truck is called "flatbed" in Car On Demand, as only the classic flatbed variant will be delivered.
  • Rarely, a bare-frame version in Watch Dogs will appear during certain crimes, being used by a random criminal as a getaway vehicle. One of the possible locations is in Parker Square.
  • If one manages to load a car onto the back of a flatbed in either game, the car loaded on will slide off as the physics engine does not apply adequate friction between the two entities.
  • When the player activates the ramp, traffic acts as if they pull over for emergency vehicles.
