Sheldon's Introduction

The Grim Range Blaster is a Range Blaster pushed to its limits. It's "totally metal", or so I'm assured. The black and green flame design is for squids who want their look to be as aggressive as their weapon. The Main works just like a Range Blaster, but the new Burst Bombs really amp up the splat speed of this set. The impressive range of the Killer Wail also adds a lot. Try this set out if you think you have a good feel for the range of a Blaster type weapon!(NA/EU/OC)[a]

A Range Blaster remodeled by Sheldon. Between the Burst Bombs and the explosive main, this is a very aggressive set that can dispatch opponents with frightening speed.
