Chain Guy and Chain Girl first appear in Oversight, with one seen painting their turret during the Chairman's message. They both made a more prominent appearance in Fighting Fire, where they are seen using their turrets to suppress the incoming Freelancer Agents who were trying to enter the Insurrectionist bunker.
Role in Plot[edit | edit source]
After the Insurrectionist Leader takes down Agent Florida with a tomahawk, he orders these two soldiers to stand their ground and prevent any other intrusion. Soon after, sniper rounds from Wyoming disorient the two, but they immediately recover and prevent him from making any progress.
Washington, Carolina, and York soon join him, with Carolina commanding him to move up. Wyoming refuses, believing that he would be killed by the chain gunners. Then, a cloaked Tex rushes past the chain gunners, only to be followed by Carolina after ordering the rest of the Freelancers to provide covering fire.
As the two soldiers focus their fire on the covering Freelancers, Florida recovers and throws the Leader's tomahawk at the two turret soldiers. He misses, and then proceeds to use a grenade launcher attached to his assault rifle to fire at a nearby crane, causing it to malfunction. The crane swings out of control and knocks the chain gunners off of the bridge, causing a crate the crane was holding to fall on them, killing the chain gunners.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The chain gunners seem to have similar looking armor, with opposite symbols. One turret gunner has a smiley face displayed on their visor and turret barrel, with their turret guard reading: "Have A Nice Day, Or Else." A command module can also be seen on his helmet. The other turret gunner has a frowny face on their helmet and turret barrel, with their turret guard reading "Turn That Frown Upside Down." They both wear Security shoulder paldrons, UA/Multi Threat chest pieces, and have a primary armor color of steel. However, one gunner has a maroon trim, while the other has a red trim. They also have UA/Multi-Threat Shoulder pieces, located on their hips.
Skills and Abilities[edit | edit source]
The chain gunners act more as guards than they do soldiers. As a result, they specialize in suppressive fire and halting enemy advances. They are also extremely heavily armored, being unfazed by Wyoming's sniper shots and quickly recovering after being knocked down by Tex. They had displayed enough skill with their turrets to completely pin down the Freelancer team and even hit a speeding Carolina whilst she was approaching them. However, they were killed when a crate, knocked astray by Florida, crushed them, leaving nothing but yellow paint.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Similar to Sharkface (and some of the other Insurrectionists), the turret soldiers' armor (most noticeably their visors) and weapons have emblems. In their case, one has a frowny face and the other has a smiley face, a design reminiscent of and possibly inspired by the ancient Greek Comedy and Tragedy theater masks.
- The soldiers appear to communicate in giggles and weeps.
- A tweet from Michael Jones dubs the twins "Chainguy" and "Chaingirl" when hinting that he and Lindsay are the voice actors.
- When the soldiers are crushed to death by a crate, yellow paint splatters from underneath instead of blood.
