"Fashioned with the aesthetic of a 20th century revolver, the Trailblazer shoots arcing "Shocker" bullets which damage secondary targets with millions of volts."
The Trailblazer is a double-action (classified as a semi-auto) Shock revolver in SAS: Zombie Assault 4. It is much like a pistol version of the CM Gigavolt, though in comparison, the Trailblazer has a much smaller magazine, of 6 rounds compared to the Gigavolt's 20. It deals less damage than the Gigavolt and fires faster than the Gigavolt, ever since it got changed to full auto 5 RPS compared to the Trailblazer's 8.
It's good against medium-sized groups of weaker zombies and small groups of Bloaters and their worms. Its small cylinder size means frequent reloading, though the reload time is fairly short. Unlike most pistols, which have no movement penalty, the Trailblazer reduces the player's movement by 5%. Another drawback is that it does not have infinite ammunition and uses ammunition that must be bought. It is similar in appearance to the Nitro Express .600, which is in SAS: Zombie Assault 3.
Like the Gigavolt, upon striking a zombie or wall, the ammunition causes electrical arcs to chain to nearby zombies, damaging them. The amount of zombies each shot arcs to has a limit equaling the pierce.
Overall, this is a compact, portable version of the Gigavolt. Good against Shielders as shock can damage them from behind.
As an Shock weapon, it will arc to nearby enemy upon trigger.
Arcing will trigger upon hitting any destroyable objects, or specifically, anything that will not cause bullets to leave impact spark, including anything destroyable, zombies, plant (that apparently is undestroyable), and all doors in Meltdown except the lower main door.
Its shots can arc over and over again like the Gigavolt when used against large groups.
As of the October 5th, 2015 update, the version had been released, along with 3 other pistols.
The Trailblazer has highest pierce DPS of all pistols.
The Trailblazer and the Poison Claw are the only pistols to have ammo that isn't free, due to their non-physical damage type.
The Trailblazer received a "Easter Edition" around Easter (March 28th) 2016. It was called the Bunnyblazer, and replaced the Trailblazer from strongboxes and crafting. Its description was "You don't want to race a rabbit, mate..."
Its description in the alpha version was "Looks like an old Colt revolver"
A 5/20/16 update delayed arcing to help reduce lag.
