Nintendo shared details regarding a brand new sub weapon for Splatoon 3. The Angle Shooter fires in a straight line once it’s thrown and reflects off of any surface. It sends out a line of ink and damages opposing players who touch it. Once an opposing player takes damage, they may be vulnerable to additional damage from an ally ready to clean them up with ink.
Check out two new videos featuring the Angle Shooter via the official Splatoon Twitter account:
Imagine bouncing an Angle Shooter off the walls of a narrow corridor, pinning down a rival. If they touch the line, they take damage…so while they hesitate, you pounce with your heavy main weapon and ink 'em up good! Take that, Gary! I mean…if your rival's name is Gary. pic.twitter.com/ZKqHGAUXbZ
