An 8-Ball launcher.

8-ball launchers are a mechanic in the Octo Expansion.


The 8-ball launcher is a pipe-like catapult with neon arrows pointing into the direction it launches 8-balls. If an 8-ball makes contact with an 8-ball launcher, it gets launched in a set direction, though the player can attack it while it is being launched to slightly change its trajectory. 8-ball launchers are mainly used for transporting 8-balls up walls or over pits.
