Not to be confused with a weapon with a similar name, the Blinder.
Use this tactical RPG to make sabotage in the enemy rear. It is light, takes little space, while the damage is very high (both to a single target and area).

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Blighter is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 15.2.0 update.

Description

It is a white grenade launcher that shoots grenades/bombs with area damage. This weapon has a decent fire rate, average capacity (for its category), and average mobility.

 Appearance

It is a re-skin of the "Bastion".

The weapon has a white and grey body with white and grey stock, handle, ammo magazine with a red "X" with a red dot in the center of it, grey and dark grey grip, a grey and partly red muzzle.

Performance

This weapon shoots small, brown/black grenades that have looping shot, so they have a medium bullet travel time. Moreover, these projectiles leave a smoky trail and on impact, they leave a medium-sized explosion.

When reloading, the clip is taken out and is replaced by another one. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • Since this has the same attributes as the Bastion, always take into account of the looping shot. Aim slightly above the opponent since the projectile will drop.
  • Always utilize it's area damage by aiming the ground or any surfaces near the opponent.

Counters

  • Any kind of snipers would suffice in any medium ranged combat, especially if you could snipe them from afar.
  • A high damage dealing weapon (such as the Undertaker) added with quick maneuvering should be able to beat them if you get ambushed.
  • Stay away from the user by equipping high mobility weapons and keeping your distance from them.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Have a good primary and at least one long-ranged weapon.

  • This weapon would be able to provide the user with decent gameplay during the level span of 12-26. In the right hands, this weapon could be used within levels 27+. The only downside is that this is a clan weapon, therefore you need to be inside a clan and this may prove to be slightly difficult for low leveled players, but it is still relatively common to get this if you are already inside one.

Trivia 

  • It shares the exact firing sound of the Demoman.
  • In the gallery description, it claims that it's a "tactical RPG", despite the weapon not using rocket-propelled grenades.
    • This is a common error for almost all grenade launchers in the Gallery.
