Vehicle trailers (or just trailers) are vehicle-related items in the Just Cause game series.
JC3 Trailers

Trailers with shipping containers and Small Destructibles.

Common descriptionEdit

See wikipedia for more about what a trailer is.

Some trailers in the JC games are immovable pieces of scenery that only act as stunt ramps, while others have functional wheels. Towing by vehicles can be done using the Grappler.

Trailer types in JC1Edit

Pesticide tank trailersEdit

Cartel villas in San Esperito and villages have small grey tanker trailers to hold pesticides. The trailers are marked with warnings of hazardous content. These trailers can be blown up. Stay away from them during liberations.

Flatbed trailersEdit

Some villages have 4-wheeled flatbed trailers. These trailers are completely immovable and never have any cargo on them.

Trailer types in JC3Edit

6-wheeled flatbed trailerEdit

These are very common in all (or most) military bases in Medici. They're large black flatbed trailers with 6 sets of double/paired wheels. Some might count this as 12 wheels. The front wheels can turn if towed correctly.

Most of these trailers are loaded with shipping containers and Small Destructibles, but a few are also empty.

The wheels on these trailers don't want to turn, causing the trailer to bounce when towed. This is actually very realistic for modern truck and trailer brakes that work with pressurized air. As a result of this, the cargo falls off very easily and the trailers can only be towed using larger vehicles, like trucks.

One of these trailers is stuck in an underground lab in the mission Electromagnetic Pulse. How it got there is unknown.

A special type of these trailers are Bavarium Dump Trailers. All Bavarium mines have some of these trailers loaded with large yellow containers of bavarium. These containers must be blown up as a part of completing the location.

Immovable black ramp trailerEdit

These are the 4-wheeled flatbed trailers that are possibly best known for having a Mugello Farina Duo parked on them in Roadside Events. Strangely, the roadside event that spawns them spawns an Autostraad Reisender 7 in front of them, despite that truck not really being able to tow a trailer of this type. The Autostraad Reisender 7 is designed for towing a semitrailer, which is a type of trailer that doesn't appear in the game.

The trailer is designed for transporting a single car, or other similarly sized object. The cargo panel is tilted for ease of loading, but these trailers are all stationary objects and can not be moved. The trailers are often located near cliffs, where they could be used as Stunt ramps. A few of these are also located at abandoned, or Medici Military controlled industrial building ruins.

SAM trailersEdit

The SAMs in Medici are all equipped with their own 8-wheeled trailers. These are the only trailers that have completely functional wheels. The first 4 wheels are able to turn, if towed correctly.

Immovable wooden ramp trailerEdit

These are flat wooden trailers with two wheels. They appear at some farms. Being immovable, they can only act as possible Stunt ramps. Their wheels resemble the front wheels of a Stria Rustico.

Lamp trailersEdit

These are small immovable yellow trailers found in construction sites and industrial areas with a temporary lamp pole extending from the base. The base is immovable, however the actual lamp is destructible. It has two wheels, and is rested on a stand. They would likely be pulled by vehicles like the Stria Toro.

Trailer types in JC4Edit

Usable semi trailers that appear in trafficEdit

Trailers will be back again in Just Cause 4, but unlike in previous games, they are actually functional.

So far the trailers and other promotional videos have revealed three types of civilian semi-trailers:

  • Flatbed.
  • Closed box.
  • Car transporter.

All three types have a hydraulic loading panel at the rear.

The flatbed trailers are very unusual in shape. Normally a semi-trailer only has wheels under the rear end, but the ones seen in the videos also have wheels under the front, just behind the trucks wheels. In reality there are large trailers with up to hundreds of wheels where each wheel can turn with hydraulic systems, but those are quite rare. Also, in one pre-launch gameplay video, it can be seen that the front wheels of the flatbed trailer don't actually turn around.

It seems that Avalanche Studios had a bit of trouble programming these trailers, the pre-launch Supply drop lists shows that both the car trailer and flatbed both have those extra wheels, but one gameplay video has shown the car trailer with out them.

Black Hand equipment trailersEdit

  • An unusually wide trailer that has a Guard Tower on it. This seems to be a portable guard tower.
    • There's two versions of this. One is slightly taller. The lower one has stairs and the other doesn't. They are both immovable and have their wheels blocked.
  • Trailer with what resembles a set of Patriot missile launchers. This might is the new SAM.
  • One is as large as the closed box semi trailer and has a revolving thingy (possibly a radar) on the roof. One of these is located next to the gate of the base that gets destroyed by a tornado in the Windwalker mission seen in pre-launch videos. The tornado passes it very closely with out damaging the trailer, proving that it's immovable. The trailer has a middle section where the sides seem to have folded out of. The sides have legs under them.

Airport trailersEdit

This video shows multiple trailer types at the large airport.

  • Train of small luggage trailers.
  • Stairs for big planes.
  • Stunt ramp, similar to the ramp trailer in JC3.
