The Sniperwriter 5H is one of the new weapons joining Splatoon 3 in Chill Season 2022. While the full set hasn’t been revealed, we do know a little about this new, Charger-class weapon. Like some of its cousins, the Sniperwriter 5H can store charged shots even if you revert to squid/octopus form. In fact, the Sniperwriter can store up to 5 charges at a time, making it a solid option for some stealthy sniping.

Big Swig Roller

The Big Swig Roller is a new Roller type weapon coming to Splatoon 3 next season, and it boasts some potent properties. It has a modified roller that leaves a wider path while rolling, and the best part is it doesn’t use up too much ink either. At the time of this writing, though, the Big Swig Roller’s sub-weapon and special still haven’t been revealed.

Splattershot Nova

The Splattershot Nova is the latest model of Shooter weapon in Splatoon 3 that comes packed with useful features. While not the most powerful gun around, the Splattershot Nova has incredible range that can give you an edge if you pay attention to your surroundings. Furthermore, your aim doesn’t degrade when holding down the trigger, making the Splattershot Nova one of the game’s most accurate guns.

The Slosher has been given a bit of a facelift with the Slosher Deco, a revamped weapon set that couples the bucket of paint with a new sub weapon and special. The Angle Shooter provides special supremacy by restricting your opponents’ movements, while the Zipcaster special makes it easy to burst into enemy territory for some wanton inking.

The Golden Aerospray MG has a glossy finish, but it’s functionally identical to its silver-played sibling. This modified weapon set also comes with the Sprinkler sub weapon and Booyah Bombs for a special attack, adding to the Aerospray’s already prodigious inking ability.

Dapple Duelies Nouveau

The Dapple Duelies Nouveau are a fresh spin on the Dapple Duelies of old, replete with a slick new coat of paint. Backing up the main weapon are the Torpedo sub and Reefslider special, which creates a unique set built around quick and aggressive movement.

Inkbrush Nouveau

The Inkbrush Nouveau, much like the existing Inkbrush, requires players to get up in the opposing team’s collective face to do some damage. The Ink Mine sub weapon and Ultra Stamp special complement this playstyle nicely, rewarding players who find themselves on enemy turf.

Forge Splattershot Pro

The Forge Splattershot Pro takes the traditional Splattershot Pro model and gives it a little more zone control. The new set sports Suction Bombs and Booyah Bombs, a veritable bomb-a-palooza. Players can easily flush opponents out with their bombs before finishing them off with a salvo from the Splattershot Pro.

Zink Mini Splatling

The Zink Mini Splatling gives the existing minigun a teal coat while switching up the sub and special weapon. The new sub weapon is Toxic Mist, which weakens opposing players and slows them down, making them easier targets for your ink barrage. Meanwhile, the Big Bubbler special lets you carve out a pocket of safety when pushing into enemy territory.

Luna Blaster Neo

The Luna Blaster Neo gives the short-range blaster a nifty new look and a fresh kit to maximize the close up playstyle. Fizzy Bombs are great for keeping enemies on their toes and cutting off quick escape routes, while the Ultra Stamp will flatten any nearby foes.
