Rapid Blaster

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Rapid Blaster is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Rapid Blaster is a Shooter-class weapon that is similar to the S Weapon Main Blaster.png Blaster, but fires much faster and has greater range. However, this comes at the cost of less Ink coverage, a smaller blast radius, and weaker shots. At minimum, it takes one direct hit and one indirect hit to splat an opponent with this weapon. Its close relative, the S Weapon Main Rapid Blaster Pro.png Rapid Blaster Pro, has slightly longer range and a slightly slower firing rate.
