Blasters appear to be based on Hercules beetles. With a bulky light brown and gray armor, Blasters possess a pair of tracked wheels underneath their body. They also have a long and straight gray cannon on their forehead as a horn.
At some point in the past, a Blaster tank was sent by Dr. Eggman to fight the Diamond Cutters after they attacked one of his bases. However, the tank was shot down by Whisper the Wolf before it could do anything. Some time later, after Sonic thwarted Eggman in their last encounter, the doctor disappeared while his Blasters and the rest of his Badnik army remained. Without a leader however, the Blasters were directionless and no longer a unified threat. Even so, they would still randomly attack anyone they came across (although such incidents were more accidental than aggression-based).
Basically, the Blasters are mindless and silent drones programmed to follow their leader's every command. As such, when left without a leader to follow, they become directionless and only able to cause harm by accident. Under a guiding force however, they are cold and merciless machines who carry out their commands without question.
