Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands doubles down on its Dungeons and Dragons inspirations through its customization system, with players able to alter every aspect of their protagonist. However, this can possess some very funny effects, something which one Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands fan found when entering the Overworld.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ Overworld map is one major way that the spin-off differentiates itself in the main Borderlands games. Within the Overworld, gamers can complete small side quests, trigger random encounters, and finish dungeons to finish shrines for his or her permanent buffs. When in the Overworld, player characters are adjusted to higher fit its cutesy aesthetic, getting massive heads which help them stand out a little. Having a top-down perspective also used, the large heads look extremely funny depending on how players have customized their protagonist.
However, while the big-headed Overworld characters normally serve as a good supply of humor in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, one Redditor’s experience with them was unique to say the least. At the beginning of a clip posted by Reddit user UberNyuber, the player’s character is visible clearly. Waiting in front of a neat Butt Stallion banner, probably the most unique and recognizable part of the design is the massive hat atop the Fatemaker’s head. Although this looks solid inside the game’s menu, things take a turn when the perspective shifts to the Overworld.
Whenever you play as a hat. from
The Redditor’s title sees them claiming they “play like a hat,” also it quickly becomes clear that they are not exaggerating. As they walk over the map, they are essentially a moving circle, with their character’s body completely hidden beneath the massive piece of headwear. Seeing the circular object waddle around is silly and adorable, also it implies that anything Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players wear atop their heads will receive a massive size increase whenever they are roaming around the Overworld map.
While this clip is hilarious, the Redditor also showcases the downside from the massive hat. After the clip, they can be seen getting stuck between two trees, showing the hat’s size could be problematic. Further, it may be harder to slap Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands enemies and stop random encounters from happening, as it will be difficult to tell if they're close enough or maybe gamers are facing the best direction. While the hat may look great in regular gameplay, its funny appearance in the Overworld might be slightly problematic.
While this is a not even close to a major issue, as the player can hop into Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands' character creator at any time to get rid of the hat, the clip is interesting. Both funny and frustrating, the cosmetic proves that gamers can actually be anything in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands – a hat.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
