Summary[edit | edit source]

Scatter Blaster is a technology upgrade for the Multi-tool which uses Projectile Ammunition.

This shotgun-style weapon fires 8 projectiles at once in a wide spread, making it most effective in close range encounters such as charging animals or attacks by Sentinel Quads. It allows multiple targets to be damaged at once, but requires a reload after every three shots.
