The Brute[1] Tipper is a dump truck in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

Tipper refers to two tipper-based trucks of similar design, both operated by Skiver Construction Corporation. The second generation model is manufactured by Brute according to its entry name (see Trivia), while the first generation model lacks any manufacturer reference.[1]

On both models, the cab is painted with the primary color, while the tipper compartment is painted with the secondary color, and share the same industrial wheels from trucks like the Mule, the Benson and the Phantom. Both models are also fitted with a CB radio, and occasional trucker chatter can be heard regardless of whether the main radio is turned on or off. The chatter will only play if playing as Trevor and in Blaine County.

In the enhanced version of the game, both trucks share the same interior common with all trucks, sporting analog dials, a retro steering wheel and a display screen mounted on the central console.

First generation

The first variant of the Tipper is strongly based on the Ford L8000 dump truck, with influences from the Mack R688 dump truck.

The vehicle assumes the design of a triple-axle, 10-wheeled rig, having a squared nose, square-shaped grille and single circular headlights on the edges, as well as a cylindrical air filter on the right side. The cabin is relatively squared in shape and features large silver mirrors, horizontal door handles and long grab handles on the sides, while the roof features a visor on top of the windshield, circular marker lights and mounted trumpet horns. Directly behind the cabin, there is a single exhaust stack on the passenger side.

The rear section features box-shaped components on the driver side, the fuel tank on the passenger side and brown mudflaps in front of the rear wheels, while the rear end shares the same tail lights and features from the Biff. The tipper compartment is rusty but does not have any deformation or dents compared to the second generation model. It may spawn with or without dirt inside the tipper.

Second generation

The second variant of the Tipper closely resembles a second generation Chevy Kodiak/GMC TopKick, such as the side profile of the fenders and overall cab design.

The vehicle assumes a different design compared to the first one, being a twin-axle, 6-wheeler rig with a more streamlined nose and a more traditional square grille, while the fenders have dual circular headlights and top-mounted square signals. The cabin has a slanted windshield and features small black mirrors, vertical door handles and smaller grab handles on the sides, while the roof features square-shaped marker lights and mounted horns.

The rear section features a single battery on the driver side and the exhaust pipe beneath the chassis, also facing the driver side, while the rear end is similar to the first variant and the Biff. The tipper compartment is rather deformed and dented, featuring red/white warning stripes on the sides and a tarp system that pivots from the middle. Like the first model, it may spawn with or without dirt inside the tipper.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The performance of both models are that of an average heavy truck, with slow acceleration but remarkable top speed. The Tipper has a very large turning radius and its heavy handling leaves much to be desired. However, its heavy weight can be used to the player's advantage, as the Tipper can easily push smaller cars out of the way.

Both models are powered by an inline-4 engine fitted with a turbocharged, coupled to a 4-speed gearbox and powering the rear wheels. The engine sound is shared with trucks like the Phantom and the Rubble.

Trivia

The beta Tipper in the "Cunning Stunt Academy" video.

  • The second generation Tipper is manufactured by Brute, while the second generation Mixer, which shares the same cab, is manufactured by HVY. This is likely a developer oversight.
  • The first generation Tipper is referred as an Brute vehicle on Rockstar Games Social Club, despite the first generation model lacking any manufacturer reference in badges, game names or file data.
  • In a scene of the Cunning Stunt Academy advertisement, a first generation Tipper appeared with a different grille and cleaner bodywork.
  • The lower detail models for the second generation Tipper feature an aerial mounted on the passenger-side of the hood. This is not present on the highest detail model.
  • The default radio stations for both variants is Rebel Radio.

Bugs/Glitches

First generation
  • None of the vehicle's windows will break from the inside when shot using a weapon. This is due to the glass's collision not being double-sided.
  • The rear half of the front fenders do not produce bullet holes when shot at. This is due to these parts of the model being on the chassis vehicle component; chassis does not produce bullet holes.
  • The player can clip with the rear wheels if they manage to get underneath it. This is due to the rear wheels' collision not resembling the width of the dual wheel design itself. This also applies to the second generation Tipper and numerous other trucks of a similar design.
