Update from the Squid Research Lab: check out footage of Special weapons in action!


05/04/2017

When Splatoon 2 launches on Nintendo Switch in South Africa this winter it’ll bring with it a new range of Special weapons. In fact, all the Special weapons in Splatoon 2 are brand new!

We’ve been hard at work researching them and have the following footage to share on the Sting Ray, Splashdown, Tenta Missiles and the Inkjet, so grab yourself some refreshments and get stuck in!

Sting Ray

This right here is a new special weapon called Sting Ray that fires a ray of pressurised ink that shoots through walls and travels long distances, splatting any enemy players it touches.

Splashdown

An Inkling who activates Splashdown will jump into the air and then strike the ground, sending an explosion of ink onto nearby players and surfaces.

Tenta Missiles

When using the Tenta Missiles, an Inkling targets as many opponents as he or she can before firing. Once the weapon is fired, four homing missiles are launched at each targeted opponent. So satisfying.

Inkjet

This special weapon is the Inkjet. It allows you to hover in the air, and comes equipped with a blob launcher that can be used to shoot ink blobs at enemies below. It seems to be a very powerful weapon, but it also leaves its user rather exposed.

Time for some bonus footage! This is a new Sub weapon in Splatoon 2 called the Curling Bomb. We were shocked to learn that the Inklings are familiar with the sport of curling, which may be the greatest discovery of all. Once deployed, the Curling Bomb slides across the ground, bouncing off walls. Take a look at it in action:

Some of you may have already tried all of these out in the recent Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. We hope you look forward to getting your hands on them again soon!
