Sheldon's Introduction

The Clash Blaster Neo offers the same functionality of the original while sporting a hot new look. This set comes with Curling Bombs for closing the distance quickly. They work well with the quick action of the main weapon! If far-off foes are giving you grief, see how they like your Tenta Missiles. This set is great for players who like to go on the attack while also watching their teammates' backs.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Clash Blaster Neo offers the same functionality as the original Clash Blaster... but with a fresh new look and a redeveloped loadout! First, you've got Curling Bombs to help you glide across the map toward your enemies. You know what to do when you get there, right? And just when they're onto you, you can fire off the Super Chump to send a bunch of exploding Super Jump decoys into the mix. This is a balanced set that can help you pull off some flashy victories. Give it a try!

Not your speed? Try out the Clash Blaster Neo, a redesigned version of the Clash Blaster. This one also comes with the Super Chump special—and it packs the kind of punch you need to really make a splash when it lands.
