Digital Extremes Pranks New Yorkers With "Real" Warframe Gun

All the recent Warframe headlines don't have to be about the glut of reveals at TennoCon -- though, if you missed those, you can get the recap here. Those fun-loving scamps at Digital Extremes also had a blast recently by letting random people in New York "blast" things with a replica Warframe gun and captured their stunned reactions on video.

We'll let the footage do the talking for us, but while I was chuckling, I had some questions. First, did any of the prank victims not notice the "Warframe Opticor Stunt" label on the fake police car? And whose job was it exactly to pick up all the envelopes that spilled out of the exploding mailbox? Did one of them contain that missing $60,000 Pokémon card?
