Description
"I am the hammer, you are the anvil."

The Green Hammer is one of the 50 original cars from Carmageddon: TDR 2000. It first appears in the Slums, being part of the second batch of vehicles the player encounters in the game.

Design

It is a green truck appearing to be a 1989 Toyota Hilux, with hammer and lightning designs throughout its body. The 'hammer' mentioned in the vehicle's name is actually a small pile driver, which goes up and down in the car's grill.

Performance

Despite the weapon on its front, it is useless as the vehicle is light and doesn't hit very hard. Fully upgraded, its top speed reaches 235mph, with the only decent thing about it being its acceleration. It also costs a ton of credits when there are better options in the same tier of opponents[1].

Driver

The driver, named "Thor Ironhammer" in the files, appears to be a green mutant with seemingly no clothes. It's unknown how the name is related to this design.

Trivia

  • The Green Hammer's file name is "GreenCusher". That is also the vehicle's name in the demo.
  • The truck is exactly the same as TNT but grungier. Surprisingly, despite being modified with some offensive capability and looking tougher, it's inferior to its cleaner twin.
    • Viper also appears to have been made with TNT as a base.
  • Green Hammer is a song by speed-metal/grindcore band Seven Minutes Of Nausea, released the same year as the game.
