Motorstorm apocalypse conceptart mudplug
Off-road racing provides hazards like mud and water which are best avoided by some vehicles. Mudpluggers aren't 'some vehicles', and aim right for them. Their oversized wheels and jacked up suspension lets them power past the opposition; they love to get stuck in and play in the dirt.
- Festival Card #115

Mud Pluggers are a vehicle class in the MotorStorm series. These vehicles will drive through mud and snow with ease and they are best suited to these thick patches of terrain.

Due to their large size they are capable of wrecking anything smaller than Racing Trucks and can hold their own against Big Rigs or Monster Trucks. Some Mud Pluggers, especially those with high ground clearance, can run over smaller vehicles. Their speeds, however, are inferior to faster vehicles such as Rally Cars due to their weight, thus making it difficult for them to keep up with faster competitors, unless there is a particularly muddy off-road section of the track, where larger vehicles such as Mud Pluggers, Big Rigs, and Monster Trucks have a much greater advantage than the lighter vehicles.

Snow PluggersEdit

In preparation for the Arctic slopes and hard rocks, the mechanics retrofitted their down and dirty Mud Pluggers with thicker tires and reinforced suspension to handle the tundra and tougher battering they expected. An all-rounder for the frozen climates.
- Festival Card #119

In MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, Mud Plugger-type vehicles appear and are named Snow Pluggers. Their Festival Card describes how they are simply lightly modified Mud Pluggers.

Snow PluggersEdit

ResemblanceEdit

Most Mud Pluggers are based on rock crawlers, challenge trucks and armoured military vehicles, as well as larger SUVs and pickup trucks. The majority are custom built for off-road driving.

TriviaEdit

  • In MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Mud Pluggers are significantly faster than in the original MotorStorm.
  • Mud Pluggers are prone to rollovers when on two wheels due to their high centre of gravity.
  • The Monarch Claymore appears in concept art for Apocalypse, yet it does not appear in-game.
