"The blasts of compressed air from this close-range weapon strip armor and components from machines without the need to aim precisely, leaving them more vulnerable to follow-up attacks."
―Inventory description

The Tearblaster is a short-range ranged weapon that fires blasts of compressed air that easily strip armor and components from machines and stagger human enemies.

It is given as a reward upon the completion of the Hunters' Blind side quest. However, as of patch 1.13, it has become available for purchase from certain merchants after completing the quest.


The Tearblaster ammo pouch can hold up to 30 charges at a time if upgraded to maximum, while the weapon itself can hold 10 charges before needing to reload.
