Splatoon 2: New details on improvements made to weapons

We’re still more than a month away from getting our dose of splattering frenzy in the next instalment of the fresh and colourful IP from Nintendo. So to keep us waiting, new details have arisen from the official Japanese Splatoon 2 Twitter account. These new infos cover the most commonly used main and sub weapons in the game, and shows how they’ve been improved in this second season to fit a little better the players’ needs:

  • Splatterscope: the snipper favourite is back on the battlefield. This time, it’s equipped with the Splash Bomb sub weapon and the new Sting Ray special. Oh and of course, no charge.
  • Splat Charger: the lensless sniper still comes with the Splat Bomb sub and Sting Ray special, but allows a faster movement while aiming. A nice touch since it was it’s most annoying flaw.
  • Splattershot: the all-around weapon says goodbye to the Tenta Missiles and replaces them for the new Splashdown special. As for the Burst Bomb sub, it’s still there.
  • Splat Roller: the large turf coverer keeps its main balance (fast coverage, poor defense) and Splashdown special, but now has the Curling Bomb sub weapon. A really interesting addition to keep other players away.
  • Splat Dualies: this double-shot new weapon type now comes with the Tenta Missiles special instead of the Ink Jet, and the Curling Bombs have been replaced by the Burst Bomb sub. Rest assured, the unique double-roll feature is still there!
  • Slosher: the redesigned bucket of ink leaves its Burst Bomb sub and welcomes the Suction Bombs, along with the Tenta Missiles replacing the Inkstrike special.
  • Heavy Splatling: DAKKADAKKADAKKADAKKA!! the “big splatter” gun lefts the Splash Wall for the Sprinkler sub, and now has the new Sting Ray special instead of the Inkstrike.
  • Sprinkler: the sub weapon has been slightly changed to allow more paint to be splashed around, but it runs out  f ink more quickly.


Splatoon 2 releases on Nintendo Switch this July 21st.
