|— In-game description|
The R-5b "Sisyphus" Hauler is a Colonial variant of the Truck. It offers the ability to boost (by pressing
Shift) in exchange of an inventory slot (14, against 15 of the standard Truck). Boosting the truck will increase its speed by circa 10%, but increases fuel consumption by 5 fold. Constantly using boost is very fuel inefficent, and can use up a full tank in a little over 3 minutes of driving.
- The model is very similar to the default Colonial truck, save for the wheels and canvas roof.
- The name refers to the Greek legend Sisyphus, who was the king of Ephyra. He was cursed to roll a big boulder up a hill, only for it to roll down every time he reaches the top, having to repeat this task for eternity.
