After the Coyote Wars, many strangers began appearing in the Southwest. Some were simply curious outsiders drawn by media hype, others however, were characters of truly dubious origins. Among these drifters was a grungy garbage man, driving a battered Grubb collection truck.
The garbage man was first spotted in 1976, near Indian Springs, Nevada, rummaging through a landfill. Since then, he was seen as far as Florida and Oregon. While he didn't appear to be associated with any official trash company, he often made regular rounds at various locations, though no one knew what he did with the stolen refuse?
Time to make my rounds...

As you'd expect, the garbage truck is pretty slow and unwieldy, but is built like a tank, so again, use ramming tactics to inflict damage on your opponents. From long-range, you may be a sitting duck, but up close you can be prety devastating.
This is a great weapon, which at its most extreme actually eats your opponent whole! As with the Moon Trekkers weapon, it grabs onto vehicles directly in front. If you fire whilst they are side-on, they are lifted up a couple of times, but don't fit in the compactor, so are thrown forwards. During and after this stage, you should fire weapons like the buckshot or stampede, then when they are thrown forward, try a crater-maker, or missile swarm. On the other hand, if the vehicle is small to medium in size and you fire while it's head or tail on, your opponent will be raised, then dumped into the heart of the compactor! A few grinding noises later, and they are spat out the back (if they survive that is). This is a great move to psych out your opponents as there's nothing they can do to stop the process once its started.
