The Combuster, known as the Combustor in European versions of the games, was a blaster which launched high-velocity fireballs of superheated plasma at enemies. The Combuster's firing rate was medium, much like that of the N60 Storm, and was used better from far away. Each shot bounced off enemies, allowing for damage to more than one enemy per shot.

The Combuster upgraded into the Magmabuster at V5, which added two additional barrels to the weapon for a total of 3 plasma balls per shot.

In the movie and game, the Combuster is a choice weapon of the Galactic Rangers.

Weapon summaries

The Combuster is the backbone of the Rangers' arsenal, allowing you to shoot targets in a short to medium range.
―Captain Qwark  [R&C (movie)]
This blaster fires burning balls of plasma. Does light damage but has a deep ammo pool and is a good fallback weapon for any situation.
―Weapon description  [R&C (PS4)]
The Combuster is spelled "Combustor" in Europe, because Europe is fancy.
