The Bloblobber is a main weapon in Splatoon 2.
It is a slosher-type weapon that shoots a row of four small bubbles which are able to bounce along the ground and off walls. The weapon boasts fairly long range and is able to splat opponents in a single shot if all four bubbles connect. The bubbles do not suffer from any type of damage decay, doing a consistent 30 damage regardless of range. The distance the bubbles are able to travel varies greatly depending on the amount of obstructions in their way, the bubbles will gradually shrink as they travel before vanishing. Colliding with walls or inclining surfaces will reduce the travel range of the bubble, as well as cause them to shrink faster.
After the blob law was passed, I created the Bloblobber to lob lawful blob bombs. Read the whole story on my Bloblobber blob law blog! Ahem... The design was inspired by a bathtub, and each fling of it unleashes four bouncing blobs! The Splash Wall sub provides cover from enemy attacks, and the Ink Storm special allows you to zone enemies and support your team! This set's a must for anyone looking to draw attention with bounding, lawful blobs, while also reminding your opponents to take a bath!

- According to datamining of the original Splatoon, before its announcement the Slosher was originally going to be called the Bloblobber.
- The Bloblobber is the only slosher that can splat opponents with one press of .
- Early data mining of the Bloblobber (still under the codename "bathtub" at the time) showed it throwing three bouncing blobs in three directions, similar to the Tri-Slosher. Each blob would do 35 damage, and the center blob was significantly larger than the other two.
The Bloblobber is a combination of Blob and Lobber, coming together to mean "One that lobs blobs", referring exactly to what the weapon does. The "verb" Bloblob can be separated into two blobs as well.
