The Red Blaster is a Russian grenadier, Zanziber Land mercenary, and minor antagonist appearing as one of the many failed assassins of Solid Snake in the game Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.



Red Blaster was an elite assassin and Spetsnaz demolitions/explosives expert known for his expertly crafted traps and utilization of extremely powerful grenades. He was later hired by Zanziber Land to assassinate Solid Snake.

Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake

When Snake entered the 30th floor of the Zanziber Land tower, he met Red Blaster and the two began to battle. Though Blaster's genius battle tactics, dangerous traps, and efficient grenades nearly defeated Snake, the latter eventually beat his rival and ironically killed him with the very grenades he wielded.
