However, this weapon features an elongated handle and barrel, and is capable of firing ink in a larger range. Its impact is the same as its normal counterpart, but the Rapid Blaster Pro has a slightly slower fire rate.

Mainly a defensive weapon, the Rapid Blaster Pro's shot leaves a wide and long trace of ink when shot parallel to the field, making it one of the best weapons in the Blaster category for covering turf.
It is the weapon with the longest range in the Blaster category, which makes it effective against enemies at great distances. However, it is slower than the Rapid Blaster while dealing the same damage: two direct hits to splat, or as many as four indirect hits. Direct confrontations with fast and elusive enemies should be avoided, as they can quickly relocate and chase the blaster owner between one shot and the next.
The Seeker consumes almost the player's ink, so it will not work with less than 7/8 of tank. With no Ink Saver Abilities, a full tank is enough for one Seeker and only one shot from the Rapid Blaster Pro.
