Created by the Nynrah artisans on the island of Xia, the ghost blasters are capable of two functions. Those carried by the Makuta enable the user to take control of anything mechanical in a target for a limited period of time. A Toa struck by a blast would find all his mechanical parts under the control of his enemy!
The Toa Nuva’s blasters create ghostly fields of energy around a foe which can be manipulated by the firer. The field can be anything from a basic cube that traps the target to a claw or chains made of pure energy. Since part of the energy is light, the Makuta are especially vulnerable to this weapon.
