Blaster[1] is a move used by Miles "Tails" Prower in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice. When performing this move, Tails takes aim with his blaster and fires a laser.

Description

When performing Blaster, Tails pulls out his blaster, takes aim, and fires a straight-lined green laser at his target.

Tails destroying an enemy with Blaster, from Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice.

In gameplay, Blaster is Tails' primary attack technique. When used, it can destroy enemies and temporarily freeze/melt water blocks from a distance while Fire/Ice Mode is active.[1] If an enemy is hit by Blaster while Ice Mode is active they will be frozen in ice before exploding, while using it while Fire Mode is active will destroy enemies in a fiery explosion. Blaster shots can as well go through targets, allowing the player to hit multiple opponents caught in the Blaster's line of shot. Also, blue-green blocks marked with an icon of Tails' Blaster (akin to the dash blocks) that bar the paths can be hit with Blaster to make them vanish.[2] Should Blaster hit a Laser Reflect, it will bounce off it in a perfect geometrical direction, allowing it to hit targets that are otherwise out of range. This gimmick is often needed when having to clear out the aforementioned blocks.

To use Blaster in gameplay, the player must press and hold Snnwiidsxbuttondisco.png while on the ground or in midair. By holding Snnwiidsxbuttondisco.png while on the ground, the player can aim Tails' Blaster, allowing a thin green line to appear, which shows the trajectory of the laser, even if it were to bounce off a Laser Reflect. This allows the player to aim it at indicated places. Tails can also fire the Blaster while jumping, either firing it directly in front of him or directly below him. The Blaster cannot be aimed when used in midair though. Also, using the Blaster on the ground makes Tails take a few steps back.
