Towmeister is well armored and can hit hard, but is suffers from very poor accerelation and top speed, making it sub-par choice for career mode.

Trivia

  • The reason Towmeister was created for TDR 2000 was because of a poll done by SCi, which was to choose the top 5 cars from both the original Carmageddon, and Carmageddon II to be made for TDR 2000. Towmeister was one of the winners on the C1 side. The others were Electric Blue, Vlad MK. 1, Suppressor and King Merc[1].
  • Two Tow Meisters appear in the Traffic Jam mission.
  • Towmeister was modified into two vehicles cut from the final game, blue and red monster trucks. Screenshot of blue one was used as base for The Yeti. Making it one of the most reused models alongside with TNT.

Carmageddon: Reincarnation

"This rabid scrapyard dog has motor oil coursing through his veins and methane seeping from his... bovine victims."

Towmeister first appeared in pre-release engine shots.

Design

Unlike earlier iterations, this incarnation of Towmeister downplays locomotive design cues and replaces them with more dog oriented decorations. The car is customized 1940's style tow truck with extremely chopped top and rusty yellow paint job. It has number 22 and picture of dog headed woman in bikini on bed side. It's front bumper is reminiscent of jaws of a dog.
