Splatoon is receiving a second weapon update this week. Hot on the heels of the Bamboozler 14 Mk II comes a Hydra Splatling. The Hydra Splatling is the Splatoon equivalent of a gatling gun and provides varying range and strength depending on how long it is charged.
The Hydra Splatling comes equipped with a Splat Bomb as its Sub Weapon and Echo Locator as its Special Weapon. It could prove quite helpful in Tower Control and Rainmaker Ranked Battles where knowing everyone’s location can help players with their strategies.
Splatoon will receive the Hydra Splatling update at 6pm PT/8pm CT/9pm ET tonight.
