The Roadhog is a combat racing car featured in Jak X: Combat Racing. It is unlocked by collecting 33 medal points in the Green Eco Cup. It is used by Shiv during the Green Eco Cup, and by Kleiver during the Green and Yellow Eco Cup, as well as in exhibition mode.
The Roadhog is a compact vehicle, not particularly tall nor short, but is the true tank among the Green Eco Cup vehicles. It has incredible acceleration, capable of beating most other vehicles to the first available pick-ups. Its second strong point is its armor, which is among the highest in the available cars.
Somewhat of a double edged sword is its comparatively wide wheelbase, imparting stability but also causing higher chances of hitting the edges around a track. Even more dangerous is running into rear weapons deployed by other racers, which become harder to dodge while turbo boosting. Furthermore, steering becomes rather sluggish when the turbo is engaged, whereas it was manageable before. The powersliding functionality does not really work smoothly enough to save you during the tighter turns. Pragmatically, the Roadhog is really a beast only to be let loose on an arena track.
