The Metal Sphere Shooter is a brute force weapon formerly used by Alpha 1 Team member Dunkan Bulk. It can be used to shoot dense cobalt-nickel spheres. Only the strongest Heroes can wield this as a primary weapon due to the weight of the device.


During a battle in New Stellac City, Von Nebula created a black hole with his Black Hole Orb Staff that sucked up the Heroes' weapons, including the Metal Sphere Shooter, though Bulk eventually got it back.

When Bulk was given the Upgrade to fire-resistant armor, he traded in this weapon for a melee weapon, and then later for a pair of Wrist Blades.

Example Usage

In Core Crisis, Bulk used this weapon in a battle against Corroder by shooting an Iron beam that was above the villain.


The Sphere Shooter shoots dense nickle coblat spheres and can be used for melee.

Set Information

  • The Metal Sphere Shooter was included with both of the Hero Factory sets that featured Dunkan Bulk from 2010.
