In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the Biff has a green dump bed with a recycle logo on it, and the large exhaust are now changed into a straight exhaust. Other than this, the Biff's appearance has not changed very much since its last iteration in GTA IV and its episodes. The Biff is also no longer the only dump truck in the game, for there are two other dump trucks: the [[Tipper]] and the [[Rubble]].

Due to its size and weight, the Biff can't reach very high top speeds. All variants tend to understeer badly, especially when throttling on corners and turning sharply. Also the rear wheels have a very bad tendency of locking up under medium to heavy braking, telling us ABS is non-existent.

Returning into ''[[GTA V]]'', the Biff is now much slower, both acceleration and top speeds are poor. Its durability it much better however, and can take many head-on crashes for the truck to even start to burst into smoke.

The HVY Biff is a large multipurpose truck featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

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 flatbed form, or two different types of dump truck, with some being filled with gravel. One is a short dump container with the same paintjob as the bodywork and the other is a large dump container with a grey color and yellow lights.

The Biff also has minor resemblence to mid-2000 models of the Freightliner 114SD, particularly in the headlight and grille areas.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Biff has a green dump bed with a recycle logo on it, and the large exhaust are now changed into a straight exhaust. Other than this, the Biff's appearance has not changed very much since its last iteration in GTA IV and its episodes. The Biff is also no longer the only dump truck in the game, for there are two other dump trucks: the Tipper and the Rubble.
