    I agree that defensive play is what the Rapid Blaster excels at. Even post-nerf, the Luna is probably the go-to Blaster for more offensively oriented play, but Rapid Blasters do well in just the opposite. Rapid Blasters are based more on Spacing and keeping people out.

    My input: the most important tip is to know this weapon's range and stick to it. You'll want to keep opponents just at the limit of your range, no closer IMO. Unlike other Blasters, this guy doesn't splat in one direct hit, so if an Inkling gets in too close, you're a dead man. Enemy squids are gonna try to snake around your shots to get in for the close range, where unfortunately the slowish rate of fire, and precise coverage are gonna leave it outclassed by most other weapons. Don't ever be afraid to make a retreat with this weapon to get back to your spacing.

    Do you prefer the standard Rapid Blaster or the Deco? For me it's not an easy decision. Suction bombs feel like they compliment the weapon better, but the Bubbler really covers its close range weakness.
