Splattershot Pro and new Special hit Splatoon 2 tonight

I’m forever blowing bubbles…

It’s Friday, and that means another classic weapon with which to decorate walls, floors and faces in Nintendo’s Splatoon 2. This week sees the Forge Splattershot Pro join the expanding arsenal.

Accompanying the weapon is a Suction Bomb sub and an all-new special: Bubble Blower. This device allows players to fire three large bubbles, which float around until burst with a well-timed blast of your team’s ink. Think throwing a gas can and then shotgunning it out of the air, but with less fatalities.

The Splattershot Pro is going live just ahead of the start of the new Splatfest, scheduled for 9pm PT/12am ET. The following 24 hours will see players battle it out to over which is the best superpower, Flight or Invisibility. Let’s go, Team Pearl!
