The ink-hungry 96 Gal Deco returns to Splatoon 2 this evening

Plus Pearl gets salty over snipers

Another weapon returns to the colourful arsenal of Nintendo’s Splatoon 2. This weekend sees the gem-encrusted .96 Gal Deco back in the game and ready for action.

The .96 Gal Deco is a mid/longe range weapon with a steady rate of fire. Though it gobbles up ammo at speed, it’s a fairly powerful weapon, splatting an unfortunate opponent in a couple of shots. It isnt the most accurate of weapons, with shots spreading as the range increases. The/96 Gal Deco’s design resembles that of a gas-grenade launcher, albeit one that is looking fabulous.


The Splatoon 2 edition of the weapon comes equipped with a Splash Wall sub and a Splshdown Special. The .96 Gal Deco will go live this evening in North America, with Europe and Japan to follow early tomorrow. Maybe you can test it out in the Arowana Mall, which returned to the game just yesterday. In somewhat unrelated news. Pearl has a message for fans of the Charger arsenal:

Stone Cold Savage.
