The Combuster, also known as the Combustor in European versions of the games, is a blaster that launches high-velocity fireballs of superheated plasma at enemies. This weapon has a medium firing rate, much like that of the N60 Storm, and is used better from far away. Each shot bursts out a blue spark when it comes in contact.

The Combuster upgrades into the Magmabuster at V5, which adds two additional barrels to the weapon for a total of three plasma balls per shot.

In the movie and game, the Combuster is a choice weapon of the Galactic Rangers.

―Captain Qwark  [R&C (movie)]
This blaster fires burning balls of plasma. Does light damage but has a deep ammo pool and is a good fallback weapon for any situation.

The Combuster is spelled "Combustor" in Europe, because Europe is fancy.
