  • 225 Cargo Capacity
  • 4 Pawn Capacity
  • 0.25 Blunt Armor
  • 0.50 Sharp Armor
  • 200 Fuel Capacity

What really makes the Wintermute special is it’s abillity to keep going where other vehicles freeze up, this is due to several factors.

The Wintermute suffers no off-roading penalties.

Biomes wise the Wintermute ignores the extra difficulty of certain biomes, the following biomes are no harder to navigate than a temperate forest:

  • Cold Bog
  • Ice Sheet
  • Sea Ice
  • Winter Taiga

Hills and mountains also have their impacts drastically lowered:

  • Small Hills – No Impact
  • Large Hills – 0.5
  • Mountains – 1

Fuel consumption is lowered by 50% while traveling on the world map.

And to wrap up the benefits on the world map, the Wintermute is not affected by the winter season movement penalty.

When driving around a local map, the Wintermute will have no speed penalty going over most terrains such as soil and ice. This is alongside snow having zero impact on the movement speed of the Wintermute.
