Special Ability

Grunt Bomber's special ability is the Plasma Pistol (プラズマピストル, purazuma pisutoru). It fires its gun in a straight line up to four squares ahead. The blast pierces through bombs, but not walls. Any bomb caught in the blast is instantly eliminated from the field without detonation. Characters caught in the blast are stunned for one second. This ability has a four second cooldown period before it may be used again.
