The Blast Sling is a ranged weapon in Horizon Zero Dawn. It is a slow-firing sling that lobs explosive bombs with various trigger mechanisms, such as impact, timer, or proximity. It is best used to deal high impact and area damage, and can be used in both aggressive and stealthy playstyles.

Special Variant

The Lodge Blast Sling is available as reward from the quest Weapons of the Lodge, requiring player to earn at least a Half Sun mark on all 15 Hunting Grounds Trials throughout the base game; players cannot get a second unit in the same playthrough. It has identical stats and slot number to the Shadow Variant, albeit with higher base Handling of 70 which could improve its Damage per Second value.
