The Frost Blastsling is part of the Blastsling archetype. Blastslings have large areas of effect which make them ideal for direct or indirect hits. They are also the best weapons to build up an elemental state. The downside to Blastslings is they cannot tear off machine components.
The Frost Blastling is the first one you will likely come across in the game.
This Oseram blastsling specializes in using Frost Bombs to make targets Brittle, during which they are more vulnerable to damage from other weapons.
