With Splaton 3 finally on Nintendo Switch, people have undoubtedly tried their hand at a variety of the game’s eclectic weapons. There’s plenty to check out, from the classic rapid-fire Splattershot Jr. to newer weapons like the fast Splatana (which quickly became my favorite). However, while everyone has their hater, there’s almost always someone complaining about the Clash Blaster, a pencil sharpener-like gun that’s frequently called out by players for being annoyingly broken. And I totally agree. The Clash Blaster is cheap.
A colorful ink shooter, Splaton 3 allows you to unlock various gear, such as hats and shirts, as well as guns, after leveling up in singleplayer or multiplayer. Each level rewards you with a new weapon to experiment with, though you still need to purchase them with Sheldon Licenses, a type of currency you acquire by playing the game. The infamous Clash Blaster is one of the weapons you can get at level 22. And people hate it so much that there have been some rather threatening messages scattered around the hub world urging people to stop maintaining it. Now!
What makes Clash Blaster so OP?
The Clash Blaster is deadly. Originally appearing in Splaton 2 and designed for use in medium to close range skirmishes, it can kill an opponent with two good shots to the body or three to four shots around the feet. This makes it a nuisance to deal with. In addition to doing solid damage, its explosion radius is wide enough to hit combatants even when shots miss. So get caught in the Clash Blaster’s range and you’re pretty much dead. There’s no escaping it, really.
I can confirm this. As a blind player with atrocious accuracy due to an eye condition called keratoconus, I still managed to get double digit kills with the Clash Blaster. It’s a weapon so OP I didn’t need to have the best aim to use it. As long as I could shoot in the vicinity of the opponent in front of me, it was definitely obscured. The same thing happened every time I opposed it in PvP. Seriously, it sucks. Or splats, I guess.
Why do people hate Clash Blaster so much?
As stated above, the Clash Blaster is extremely powerful. You don’t have to be a top player to climb the multiplayer leaderboards when using the pencil sharpener-like gun. And that’s why a lot of people can’t stand it. Just type “Clash Blaster” into Reddit or Twitter, and you’ll see plenty of complaints about the weapon and how it works. an unjust weapon. Some would say it’salways busted like shit,” while the others interrogate why, of all the weapons available to choose from, would someone point the gun when this is so OP and able to spoil the fun and destroying squid and the same girls. The hatred for the Clash Blaster dates back to Splaton 2, for the love of Christ. Talk about holding grudges. In games, there are not always Call of Duty game on playstationbut you can bet there will always be a Splatoon player complain about the Clash Blaster.
I mean, even before Splaton 3 launched on September 9 the game’s official subreddit received frequent calls from Cash Blaster. Some begged Nintendo to remove the Clash Blaster of the trio. And when the company revealed that the weapon would return, some took the news very, very hard. You can always count on someone posting about how the pencil sharpener-like gun ruins the ink fun.
While the Clash Blaster can be a boring weapon, it’s not the one I’d call the most annoying to deal with. There are other weapons on my shit list, namely the insanely fast Inkbrush and Octobrush, and the long-range Rollers that effortlessly flatten you. But I won’t deny how boring the Clash Blaster can be, especially when in capable hands.
Splaton 3 was a pretty big hit for Nintendo despite not being on the market for a full week yet. In fact, the third-person shooter has already sold over three million copies in just three days in Japan, which makes it much more popular than breath of the wild or even Pokemon Games. It’s wild.
