Blasters are gear needed for SlugSlinging. When slugs are blasted with a blaster at 100 miles per hour the Slugs transform. When a Slug gets too powerful the blaster will then break and the SlugSlinger will then need to get a new one or get the broken one fixed by Red Hook or someone like him. Blasters also have ad-on rails for up-grades and accessories . But a lot of people keep it simple, and let the slugs do the work.
