Splatoon 3 Brush weapons detailed

    Brush opponents up with ink.

    Nintendo’s Squid Research Lab introduces brush weapons, a returning weapon category with the release of Splatoon 3.

    Brush weapons swing and splatter ink onto opponents within a close range in Splatoon 3. Rapid-fire brushes may cover a lot of ground with ink while moving at a fast pace compared to other Splatoon 3 weapons.

    “Squid Research Lab here, ready to brush up on brushes!” Nintendo said. “Hold ZR while using a brush to sprint at a tremendous speed and lay down a tactical ribbon of ink. You can also use rapid-fire brush swings to turn an opponent’s face into the kind of abstract art that’s worth millions!”

    Two weapons were showcased: the Inkbrush and the Octobrush. The Inkbrush is a balanced weapon, but it makes up for the lack of power with fast strikes and agile movement. The Octobrush is a harder hitting and farther reaching brush weapon in comparison. In the hands of a skilled player, the Octobrush is a counter to the Inkbrush, and vice versa.

    A Splatoon 3-themed Nintendo Switch OLED model releases on August 26 worldwide. Splatoon 3 releases on September 9 for Nintendo Switch. Lastly, a new Splatoon 3-themed carrying case and Nintendo Switch Pro Controller releases alongside the game.
