The HVY Biff is a large truck featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Design

Closely resembling a Kenworth T800, the Biff is a conventional cab truck used in construction and industries commonly encountered in industrial districts in the game. The Biff is available in different configurations in flat-bed form, or two different types of dump truck, with some being filled with gravel.

Performance

Due to its size and weight, the Biff can only reach 121 mph. All variants tend to understeer badly when putting power on

into a corner. Also the rear wheels have a very bad tendency of locking up under medium to heavy braking, telling us ABS is non existent. The Biff also shares the same engine sound as the Bus when driving with the 'in cab' view.

When driving around areas such as Star Junction and The Triangle, the Biff is easier to drive than the Flatbed, owing to the fact it has a more 'ergonomic' nose, this also improves driver visibility greatly.


Trivia

  • After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Biff fetching $4,000.
  • The default radio station of the Biff is San Juan Sounds.
  • During the mission Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend after getting ambushed the diamonds are thrown into the back of one of these trucks.
  • In The Lost and Damned there are remains of unused coding of "biff2" variant. It is unknown what could it be during development.
  • The truck's name is a reference to the character Biff Tannen from the Back to the Future trilogy. In "Back to the Future", Biff's car slides and crashes into a dumptruck filled with animal manure.
