The Sloshing Machine's splash damage allows it to fulfill roles similar to that of a blasters. More specifically, it is very similar to the Rapid Blaster with respect to splash damage, direct damage, range, and speed. Additionally, the heavy arc of the projectile makes the weapon ideal for dealing with enemies behind cover, or enemies atop a platform, like the tower in Tower Control. These capabilities, however, come at the cost of lower attack-speed and turf coverage when compared to more traditional sloshers.
