The Rapid Blaster Pro is a DLC weapon in Splatoon that was released on October 17th, 2015 at 02:00 UTC.

Description

The Rapid Blaster Pro is similar to the Rapid Blaster in that it fires large bursts of ink at a quick rate. However, this weapon features an elongated handle and barrel, and is capable of firing ink in a larger range. Its impact is the same as its normal counterpart, but the Rapid Blaster Pro has a slightly slower fire rate.

"The Rapid Blaster Pro is based on the Rapid Blaster, but it's further specialized for increased range. Follow your Seekers to zip into an advantageous position and strike from your opponent's blind spot! The Inkzooka makes this a great set for frontline fighters who like to cause big problems for their foes!"

Tips

Mainly a defensive weapon, the Rapid Blaster Pro's shot leaves a wide and long trace of ink when shot parallel to the field, making it one of the best weapons in the Blaster category for covering turf.

It is the weapon with the longest range in the Blaster category, which makes it effective against enemies at great distances. However, it is slower than the Rapid Blaster while dealing the same damage: two direct hits to splat, or as many as four indirect hits. Direct confrontations with fast and elusive enemies should be avoided, as they can quickly relocate and chase the blaster owner between one shot and the next.

The Seeker consumes almost the player's ink, so it will not work with less than 7/8 of tank. With no Ink Saver Abilities, a full tank is enough for one Seeker and only one shot from the Rapid Blaster Pro.
