Have you seen this weapon a lot recently? The Ruby Blaster is a new blueprint for the AS44 (Assault Rifle Foxtrot), that came out as part of the Christmas 2021 bundles. Now, before you leap for your wallets, allow us to answer some key questions for you. What bundle does the Ruby Blaster come from? And is it worth it?

Wondering how the AS44 stacks up against other assault rifles?

How To Unlock The Ruby Blaster?

To unlock the Ruby Blaster, you need to buy the Fox Runner bundle for 1800 CP ($17 approx.), which will unlock the following items for you:

  • Constanze Skin: Scarlet Elite
  • Reticle: Deco
  • Charm: Crimson Heart
  • Calling Card: Last Defiance
  • Emblem: Weathered Wings
  • Spray: Retro Riveter

You can check out what these look like beneath.

Personally speaking, we don't think much of the Constanze skin. The other cosmetics are pretty meh too, and the Deco reticle is terrible. So you're really buying this bundle for the AS44 blueprint if you do buy it. Which leads to our next question, is the Ruby Blaster worth the whole 1800 CP?

Is The Ruby Blaster Worth It?

The Ruby Blaster is a good blueprint if you're looking for an SMG-style AS44 build, but for 1800 CP, you can find nicer blueprints. You'll have to judge the aesthetic for yourself, but here are the attachments you get on the Ruby Blaster:

You don't get a lot of meta attachments, as you can see, but you do get a very quick build. There's a lot of hip-fire accuracy with the Red Blaster configuration of attachments, and Gung-Ho makes the Sprint Out time effectively zero, so this works very well for a close-quarters focused weapon.
