Grunty The Murloc Marine: Blizzcon 2009’s Exclusive Pet


Meet Grunty, the World of Warcraft in-game pet offered exclusively to those who attend Blizzcon 2009 or witness the event on DirecTV.

Longtime World of Warcraft gamers already know that the annual Blizzcon event offers the most interesting, rare, and bizarre in-game pets available, and the 2009 edition is no exception.

As StarCraft fans will notice, not only is Grunty a member of World of Warcraft’s adorably omnipresent Murloc race, he’s also wearing an immaculate set of Terran power armor.

“This tiny terror is fully armored and comes equipped with a gauss rifle, which he’ll occasionally fire into the air to make sure no invisible spacecraft are swooping in to attack,” reads Blizzard’s official reveal.

The Blizzard nerd in me is also hoping Grunty will take occasional potshots at other players’ pet zerglings, but that much fanservice would probably cause painful priapism in WoW fans.
