Icefire Blastsling Description

This destructive Carja weapon is designed to rain Fire Bombs on enemies. It can be upgraded to handle Advanced Explosive Bombs and enhance its rate of fire.

How to Get the Icefire Blastsling

Location Cost
The Bulwark Hunter Metal Shards x632, Elemental Clawstrider Circulator x1

You can purchase the Icefire Blastsling from the Hunter who has set up camp in The Bulwark. You’ll need an Elemental Clawstrider Circulator which is an Uncommon Drop from Clawstriders.

How to Use the Icefire Blastsling

The Icefire Blastsling is best used when fighting larger machines that are susceptible to Fire or Frost. Depending on the Weaknesses of the Machine, use the Fire Bombs to place the Damage Over Time Status Effect on, then switch over to a different weapon to deal more damage. Alternatively, use Frost Bombs to increase Impact Damage, then switch over to an Impact Weapon, such as the Piercing Shredder Gauntlet (Rare).
