recently we've become interested in this weird beautiful mess of a game called Warframe, and somehow that interest has crossed over into our lifelong obsession with the Humongous Entertainment Junior Adventure games. we've spent the last few months making custom Warframe loadouts inspired by Putt-Putt, Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam, and Spy Fox!
the frame choice was pretty straightforward here. Putt-Putt is a car; Gauss is a car. we went with the Mag helmet to really sell the car look.
(weird coincidence: Gauss has a friend named Grendel, a warframe who happens to bear a resemblance to Putt-Putt's crossover friend Fatty Bear. maybe we'll update this later with more obscure characters...)
we used a Lecta with magnetic damage for Putt-Putt's grabby whip antenna. he felt a little defenseless with just a melee weapon, so we also gave him an exhaust pipe: an Ignis Wraith with gas damage.
Yareli was another obvious choice. all her abilities are water-themed, including bubble traps and a surfboard jellyfish creature.
even her signature weapon is a bubble gun, which makes a perfect blast damage slingshot for Freddi.
for her melee weapon, we gave her a leafy Endura kelp sword with self-healing mods and a piratey stance. argh!
we had to do some searching before we landed on Baruuk for Pajama Sam. he's a monk who prefers pacifism, which feels like an interesting take on Sam's character arc. he also has an ability that puts enemies to sleep.
our Sam comes with an Illuminator Mark V™ Quatz and a Heliocor, a hammer that scans enemy data for collection in the codex: an actual Portable Bad-Guy Containment Unit. both weapons do radiation damage.
Loki is a trickster who can go invisible, create decoys, disarm enemies, and latch onto walls for longer than most frames. useful gadgets for a spy.
Spy Fox is equipped with not one but four SPY Watches, in the form of Obex. he's also carrying a silenced Lex. not a very damage-focused loadout, but good enough for stealth missions.
and that's everyone! for now...
