Update by Benny Norton-Brann
With the upcoming Splatoon update arriving April 12th, new weapon variations will be introduced in the download. Dubbed as “Sheldon’s Picks”, these will include new colors and names to the weapons along with changes to their original sub and special weapons. For example, the “Berry Splattershot Pro” brings a more neon-esque scheme to its look, and includes Suction Bombs as the sub weapon and the Bomb Rush as the special, differentiating itself from the Splat Bomb and Inkstrike weapons found on the original.
A total list of these new weapons includes:
Wasabi Splattershot – Sub: Splat Bombs/Special: Inkstrike
Berry Splattershot Pro – Sub: Suction Bombs/Special: Bomb Rush
Fresh Squiffer – Sub: Suction Bombs/Special: Kraken
Permanent Inkbrush – Sub: Splat Bombs/Special: Kraken
Soda Slosher – Sub: Splat Bombs/Special: Inkzooka
Bamboozler Mk III – Sub: Burst Bombs/Special: Inkstrike
