Blaster

From Steambirds Alliance Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The signature weapon type of the Old Faithful and Medic planes and an alternate weapon type of the Engineer. Quad 2-B and Siege Tank 2-B unlock this weapon type for use on Quads and Siege Tanks, respectively.

Blasters usually shoot one shot directly forward and two more shots deviating 7.5° from forward on either side. Exceeded in range only by Snipers and with no reload time, Blasters are at their best when one takes advantage of their many maneuver-oriented Pilot Skills.
