Nintendo have pleased Splatoon fans again shortly after announcing Old Weapons Confirmed for Splatoon 3 Release. Nintendo have gone onto confirm 3 new Weapons that will return to Splatoon 3 when the game finally launches in September 2022.
Last week, the Splatoon 3 team took to social media to confirm three “Basic” Weapons where returning to the franchise, and announced the Splattershot, the Splattershot Jr and 96 GAL will al be playable.
This week the Splatoon 3 team, also known as the Squid Research Lab took to social media once again to confirm the next wave of Weapons coming to the highly anticipated video game.
This time, it’s “Charger Weapons” that have been revealed.
Charger Weapons are slightly different from your standard or basic weapons, because they require a Charge Time, which by definition is how long you have to hold the trigger to let the power build up, before the weapon will splat ink (or paint).
These appear to be great for offensive, and widely used by Splatoon Players who are skilled at dodging opponents or enemies.
According to the Squid Research Lab, the Splat Charger is an all round well balanced weapon, with pretty good range and a medium Charge time.
Nintendo also offered a high-quality 3D render to show off the Splat Chargers new look.
Compared to the Splat Charger from previous games it’s benefited from a little aesthetic upgrade, but is still clearly a Splat Charger, and we think it looks awesome.
Next up we have the Classic Squiffer, which is classed as a lightweight Charger.
The Squid Research Lab joke about this being a Charger weapon, (likely because of its weight and speed) but technically it is a charger weapon.
The Classic Squiffer is a close range weapon, due to the fact the range isn’t fantastic, but will offer dynamic play style in Splatoon 3.
The Splatoon 3 variation of Classic Squiffer doesn’t look too different, but does feature a ink-tank upgrade, likely to fit in with the upcoming Splatlands specification and storyline.
Finally we have the awesome E-Litre 4K which the Splatoon Team claims is the Grandaddy of all charger weapons. If this is true, it’s quite the accolade!
The Squid Research Team confirm the E-Litre 4K has a massive range, however does suffer from a super-long charge time.
Unfortunately this also means it uses a huge amount of ink.
Alike previous weapons revealed for Splatoon 3 in the last few weeks, it looks pretty similar to the original with only subtle changes here and there.
