Sheldon's Introduction

"The Bamboozler 14 Mk III takes the S Weapon Main Bamboozler 14 Mk I.png Mk I and swaps out the barrel for a different bamboo pipe. This set's selling point is how the main weapon and the S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs can really hammer your opponent! That's not to mention the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike, which can make life difficult for even far-off enemies.
This really is a set worthy of the legendary name-
Actually, no... A set that REDEFINES what it means to be a Bamboozler!" (NA)[a]
