What’s your favorite weapon in Splatoon?


Splatoon released on Friday. I went away for the weekend, and now a bunch of folks are level 20. It’s not a race! (Says the guy who is losing the race at a meager level 11.) Clearly, people are digging competitive painting to the point where real-life responsibilities are being neglected.

By now, you surely have a favorite weapon. Let’s chat about that.

It’s hard for me to imagine sticking with anything other than the rollers, personally. They aren’t the best weapons in Splatoon, I’d argue, but they are the best for me. For my play style. The Krak-On Splat Roller has served me so well, what with its ridiculous fast-moving, ink-laying, invincible Kraken special. And more than winning, these things are just a blast to wield.

I suspect that before long, more players will pick up the tactics needed to shut down rollers and I’ll have to adapt — potentially to a new weapon. Until that day comes, however, I’m not budging.

But enough about me. What’s your go-to?
