February is the month of love and while the time for chocolates, flowers and romantic dinners has passed, our coverage of certain colorful characters continues. This week we take a look at Wascot from Super Monday Night combat. Whether or not you had a good Valentines weekend, you’ll be thankful you didn’t run into someone like this fellow!
Wascot, while not very well known, is definitely one of the weirdest, most awkward characters in videogames. He stars in Super Monday Night Combat, a free to play multiplayer online battle arena that’s very trigger happy. Unlike other MOBA’s, SMNC is all about real time movement, fast paced combat and lots of bullets and guns. It’s fun and exhilarating and certainly not your average MOBA. Wascot belongs to the Commando Class, which are the glass cannons of the game. This class, unlike any other class in the game, specializes in melee attacks as well as fast movement. Because of this Wascot is your worst nightmare, his is skillful, deadly and will troll you at every chance he gets.
Wascot does not have one dysfunctional factor he has many. From the outfit that he wears in the battle arena to the weapons he uses, he is dysfunction from head to toe. Wascot wears a uniform to battle that resembles Bullseye, the title’s mascot. However he seems to have modified it with a variety of “accessories.” He switched Bullseye’s traditional yellow for the color orange and equipped himself with some biker-like gear. He has a black helmet, gloves, shoulder pads and boots. He seems to be wearing some sort of leather harness as well as a pair of fishnets. Yes, you read that right… fishnets. He also carries a teddy bear in his back.
His weapons are quite “unconventional” as well. His primary weapon is a coin launcher, which disperses fake coins throughout the battlefield. When an opponent tries to pick up the coins, they explode. His secondary weapon is what he calls the -ahem-“Heart Breaker.” Such weapon resembles a leather paddle with the shape of a heart at the very edge. He uses the heart breaker to smack you around and as if that wasn’t enough, when he grapples you he will bend you over his knee and spank you with this weapon. If you ever wanted to “troll and pwn” somebody, Wascot is your guy.
Before he took the character of Wascot, his name was Frank Deeford and even then he had obsessive tendencies. His obsession revolved around anything SMNC especially if it was related to their mascot Bullseye. His heroes fell from the pedestal he had them in when, as a fan, he called the post-match show and Bullseye accidentally hung up on him. Since then he went from being a spectator to an active participant in SMNC matches, taking on the persona of Wascot. However he now stalks Bullseye out of revenge, not love.
So there you have him, Wascot, officially one of the most dysfunctional characters of all time. He is the weird, creepy and obsessive lover you never want to have. Next week we close off this section with our last dysfunctional character. Until next time!
