The Grim Buster is a 3-star handgun.
A handgun alchemized from the shell of a corrupted tortodrone. Shadows seem to lengthen and cling to it whenever it is brought to bear.
A 2-shot handgun that lunges forward and releases a bullet with each lunge. The first bullet causes slight knock-back while the second bullet causes moderate knock-back.
Launches a barrage of six crystals into the sky, landing in a vicinity around three to four tiles ahead of the original charge location or if a Monster is in front of your charge location. Once the crystals are lodged into the ground, they will continually damage any monsters coming in contact with them until the crystals decay.
While the crystals are lodged into the ground, they act as a nearly impassable wall for Monsters.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.
