The Bamboozler 14 Mk I was released on August 28th, 2015. It has an extremely high charge rate, the highest of the Chargers, allowing shots to be fired off in quick succession. It also has decent range and mobility. However, while it is the quickest Charger, it is also the weakest; it cannot splat an enemy in one hit, even when fully charged. However, unlike other Chargers the range remains constant regardless of charge. It comes in a set with the Splash Wall and Killer Wail.

Its nostalgic appearance is faithful to the weaponry of the time, but its range and firepower aren't great.
