The Blaster is a class in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, being one of the three initial classes that The New Kid can choose from in Origins. Players will be able to choose this class after discovering the Coon Lair. The Blaster uses ranged fire attacks to do damage. Their charged attack includes a knockback.

The default Blaster costume set is known as the Heatwave Costume set.

Professor Chaos and Human Kite are classified as Blasters in-game.

Tactics

The Blaster specializes in dishing attacks from medium to long range. All of the Blaster's abilities are fire related, with two of its abilities causing the Burning Status.

The Triple Burn ability is one of the Blaster's most useful abilities, as it can be dished out to a single selected target from a distance away while inflicting the Burning status. As for Heat Wave, it is useful to knockback multiple enemies to keep them away from attacking range. The Plasma Beam ability can be meted out to multiple targets in a row up to 6-tiles away, making it one of the longest ranged abilities among all the regular abilities of the classes available in-game.

The Blaster's Ultimate ability, Backfire Blast is the only Ultimate ability among the three starting classes which affects more than a single target. It is also the only Ultimate ability among the three starting classes which inflicts status effects, namely Burning and Grossed Out.
