Sheldon's Introduction

The Custom E-liter 4K maintains all the great features of the original but features a bold new look! The three Squid Beakons the set comes with allow you to exert some map control or provide avenues into enemy turf for your allies! What's more, the Bubble Blower gives you even more power to light up the enemy from a safe position! If your thing is supporting your team from the back while having the power to strike fear in your foes, this is the weapon set for you!
