The Hydra Splatling is hitting Splatoon 2 tomorrow

Taste the rapid-fire rainbow

For those hoping to settle post-Thanksgiving overeating trauma with a little competitive inking, a new weapon will be arriving tomorrow evening in Nintendo’s team-shooter, Splatoon 2.

This week sees the Hydra Splatling joining the arsenal. This minigun knock-off was the final weapon to be added to the original Splatoon. Think of it as a far more kawaii version of Blaine’s “Ol’ Painless” from Predator. It will be arriving equipped with an Autobomb sub and a Splashdown special.

The Hydra Splatling goes live in Splatoon 2 tomorrow evening at 18:00 PT in North America, with Japan and Europe to follow on the morning of the November 25. The new weapon comes as part of a huge update that adds plethora of goodies to the game over the weekend.

Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
