The latest playable weapon added to Red Faction: Armageddon is pretty strange, but pretty cute too.
The Red Faction series has always been somewhat serious, but developer Volition always seems to find a way to throw some silliness into the mix. In the studio’s upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon, Mr. Toots will be that silliness.
Who, or what, is Mr. Toots? Mr. Toots is a rainbow-farting unicorn created by Freddie Wong, known for many amazing videos such as real-life Mario Kart and real-life deathmatch. *Edit* Mr. Toots was apparently given to Wong by Volition, not created by him. Oops! His video is worth watching anyway:
Just so it’s clear, Volition is adding a destructive, rainbow-farting unicorn to Red Faction: Armageddon as a playable weapon. Mr. Toots is a reward for fans that downloaded the Red Faction: Armageddon demo more than 1 million times. It’s also a follow-up to Red Faction: Guerrilla‘s Ostrich Hammer multiplayer weapon, a hammer made out of a live ostrich.
Mr. Toots will probably be a multiplayer weapon again, as it’d be strange to see him in Armageddon‘s single-player storyline that follows the release of an alien menace from an ancient mineshaft on Mars. Armageddon features a survival-style multiplayer mode called Infestation that will see up to four players cooperating to defeat legions of terrible foes. Now, with the help of a rainbow-farting unicorn bazooka to boot.
Red Faction: Armageddon will be released for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on June 7.
