The Blorb is an Heavy-type ARMS weapon with the Blind attribute.

Description[edit]

Appearance[edit]

The Blorb appears as a large blue gel-like sphere held in place by straps attached to the wrist.

Function[edit]

"Big, bouncy, bulbous blobs of unknown origin. The latest research suggests that they're very sticky and have a fantastic fruit-like flavor."
Official Description


  • Fighters hit by the Blorb will be temporarily blinded by blue slime.
  • The Blorb has a significant arc and bounces off the floor and walls, allowing unpredictable movement.
  • A Rush will increase the weight class of the projectiles to S.Heavy for the duration of the attack.

Note: All frame data shown are from punches/grabs that do not contact the opponent and are started at the maximum range possible.

Note: All frame data is used consisting of the ARMS weapon being in both hands.
