Grunty the Murloc Marine is a companion that was given out to attendees of BlizzCon 2009, purchasers of the DirecTV pay-per-view of the event, and purchasers of the internet streamed video of the event.[1][2]

Grunty is a baby murloc with Terran Marine armor and a gauss rifle that will occasionally fire around at perceived enemies (no damage).[3][1]

Grunty will be delivered by in-game mail to every character on a player's account that has been attached to a Grunty code, much like collector's edition companions. If you merged your World of Warcraft account with your account after purchasing the stream, you will not get the pet.

He can assist heroes in Failoc-alypse by dropping nuclear bombs.[4]

He will attack nearby zergling when they spawn.

Accompanying letter

The letter delivered with Grunty is from Master Handler Sylvester:

Special Delivery

Thank you for your attending BlizzCon 2009! As a special gift of appreciation, we would like to present you with this small, heavily-armed friend. May he lead you to new adventures across the face of Azeroth and beyond!
