Today’s Splatoon Direct featured a segment on the weapons of the upcoming title. The Main Weapons are split into three categories: the rapid-firing Shooters, long-ranged Chargers, and the opponent-squashing Rollers. Alongside a weapon of one of these types, you’ll also equip a Sub Weapon and a Special Weapon. Sub Weapons include a huge variety of items that you can toss into the arena, such as bombs, barriers, and beacons. Special Weapons allow for super-powered attacks that can only be used after filling a gauge by covering enough area with your team’s ink. You can view a reel of some weapons of these types in the video above.
