The Blaster is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The weapon shoots special ink rounds that burst like fireworks after traveling a certain distance. These bursts can deal damage in a wide area, allowing its user to attack opponents hiding behind obstacles and around corners. The explosive round does enough damage to splat opponents with only one direct hit, or two indirect hits. The firing rate is faster than the S Weapon Main Range Blaster.png Range Blaster, and slower than the S Weapon Main Luna Blaster.png Luna Blaster.

The weapon's appearance is based on the idea of a "hot rod", or custom, car. The rear of the weapon is a spray can, the kind of spray can that would be used to custom-paint a car. The middle of the weapon exposes the internals of the weapon, as if to make it easier for the owner to tweak and maintain any custom parts inside. The exposed spring resembles the coil springs in car suspensions. The front of the weapon features a flame design characteristic of custom-painted cars, which is painted on an object that resembles a muffler. The weapon even has the word "custom" in the title of its variant, the S Weapon Main Custom Blaster.png Custom Blaster.
