Splatoon 2 Torpedo Sub-Weapon Will Debut In November 2018 Update




A new Splatoon 2 sub-weapon has been announced. When the November 2018 update arrives, so will a new homing attack. The Splatoon 2 Torpedo is a sort of bomb that can be thrown, zero in on an enemy, then splatter them with ink. It was revealed


Here’s how the Splatoon 2 Torpedo sub-weapon works. If you have enough ink, you can toss it in the general direction of an opponent. It will then track one person and home in on them, first hitting them, then send off an additional four splashes around them.


The official Twitter account has a video of this attack in action.


As the post notes, this is an attack that can be countered. If someone sees a Torpedo coming, they could shoot it down with ink from their own weapon. It does not say how difficult it might be to destroy.




Splatoon 2 is available for the Nintendo Switch. The next update will arrive next week and bring this Torpedo and the Ultra Stamp Special Weapon.
