This papercraft is Elliot Salem’s mask, based on the video game Army of Two. The paper mask is designed by ZRP Art Craft, there are Army and White two versions with different texture. Elloit Salemworks for: T.W.O. Elliot Salem’s transition from being a small time teenage “gangsta” to a battle hardened warrior was made easy by the Louisiana State Penal System. Choosing to serve his country rather than his fellow inmates, Elliot joined the US Army Rangers. While you can take Elliot out of the hood, you can’t quite take the hood out of Elliot. His shady background shows through as he is quick to accept morally questionable missions with the promise of a big payout, or take risks that other soldiers would consider too dangerous. Fortunately for him, Rios is always there to help steer him right and make him think before he acts.
Salem and Rios may bicker, but there’s no denying that on the battlefield, the two make a great team. As Rios devises strategy, Salem executes it. Without fear, regret or remorse, Salem is able to run headlong into battle and rip apart any adversary- often before his foes realize what just hit them.
Never having really grown up, Elliot acts like a child, curses like a sailor, and parties like a rock star. His terrible spending habits paired with his excessively materialistic lifestyle keep him in constant financial trouble – no matter how much money he makes, or what his nagging buddy Rios tells him.
Rios and Salem each have their own opinions on things. Salem is a money mad contractor and Rios is a tactical and strong headed man. The two have their differences yet they are still best of friends in the thick of things. Showing that an Army of Two is much better than an army of one.
Salem tends to be much more trigger happy than Rios and as such, Rios tends to be a more level headed influence on his partner. The pair banter easilly and often appeared unphased by what they see, though there are times when Salem expresses extreme dislike for what they do and it is implied that were Rios not with him, that he may end up taking more risks for money or simply because parts of the job piss him off. Salem and Rios both have personalities that compliment each other. Rios is the calming influence while Salem is the gung ho one of the partnership. As such, they each bring something different to the table in terms of a fight and friendship and it is their differences that make them get along so well.
Army of Two is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Electronic Arts, released on March 4, 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The game is centered upon two mercenaries fighting through war, political turmoil, and a conspiracy from 1993 to 2009. Focusing on cooperative strategies, Army of Two‘s main feature is the necessity to use coordinated teamwork to accomplish the game’s goals. While the game is meant to be played with another human as a partner, a “Partner Artificial Intelligence” (PAI) is also included and programmed to follow the player’s strategies. Dependence on a partner is so pronounced that most objectives are impossible to complete without it.
Army of Two is one of the first games released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles that feature region-locked online play. EA claims that the region-locking is to prevent network lag caused by players from multiple regions, and to prevent the Asian region console owners from playing the U.S. and European version of the game, as the Asian version has been censored to meet certain requirements. A sequel titled Army of Two: The 40th Day, was released on January 12, 2010.
