@justinlynch3 idk just dont see myself enjoying driving those quadrocycles, but u never know until u try it i guess
They are everywhere up here in Canada and around the US. I dunno how much places like Russia use them, but they are hella fun to ride around on.
While it's true ATV's aren't used in big time logging operations, like I said Mudrunner has started to expend outside just heavy duty hauling with Rocky Hills where we have little pickup truck trailers. So it's not like anybody can argue anymore that Mudrunning is only meant for heavy duty.
But, even if Mudrunner didn't use them for hauling at all, they'd still make amazing scout vehicles. Unlike a F-150, these quads are actually build for mud and off-roading. And imagine searching out waypoints, these little things can zip around in between tree's and take shortcuts like forests no sweat.
There biggest weakness would likely be water. While you can float a ATV in still water and keep the engine going as long as you keep the throttle in, a lot of the Mudrunner maps like The Crossing has water with fast moving currents. ATV's aren't meant to deal with that.
So I think that's a pretty good balance. They can zip though woods with ease, they kinda float over by all rights, but they struggle on water crossings.
