Brain Strainer is the New Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Gear Reward

Brain Strainer is the New Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Gear Reward

In the Splatoon 3 Salmon Run mode, people can participate to earn a unique piece of gear as a monthly reward, and the Brain Strainer is now available. People who play and earn a certain number of bonus points will be guaranteed the headgear. It is also possible to essentially “reroll” it and get a version with different skills by coming back to play again and earn another one.

Like many pieces of silly Splatoon 3 gear, the Brain Strainer is inspired by common, contemporary, household items. It is essentially an upside-down colander being worn as a hat. There are various lights and wires coming out of it, as well as an antennae. It features a Back to the Future sort of vibe. You need to earn 200 bonuses points to get one.

Like other items earned from this mode, the Brain Strainer is a part of the Grizzco line, will have four random abilities, and is billed as a two-star item. You can’t get it by “ordering” a copy off of someone already wearing one in the hub.

This is the third Salmon Run reward so far. When Splatoon 3 launched, people could earn the Bream-Brim Cap. After that, the Lo-Vis Visor appeared in October 2022 as a Splatoon 3 Salmon Run bonus.

Splatoon 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch.
