The Crab Tank is a crab-shaped special weapon. It is armed with three turret-like cannons, one on each front limb, and one in the center of the body. So far, it's been confirmed that it can walk and strafe like players, as well as curl up into a ball to move faster and climb up walls, similar to the Baller. Movement seems to be unaffected by enemy ink. It appears to have 2 firing modes, one shoots a ball of ink that explodes on contact, similar to the Explosher, and a second mode that shoots bullets similar to Shooters or Splatlings.

Most statistical information, such as duration and base damage, are currently unknown. It appears to be part of the Clash Blaster's set.



  • The Crab Tank resembles a Crash Test Dummy.
  • The outside cannons resemble a style of juctioned exhaust headers mainly used in speedboat engines.
