Splatoon 2 Ultra Stamp Special Weapon Arrives November 7, 2018




A new special is coming to Splatoon 2! The official Tumblr has revealed the Ultra Stamp. When the 4.2.0. update comes to the game on November 7, 2018, there will be weapons that offer this hammer with a stamp on it as their special weapon. (Note that the update date is listed as approximately November 7, 2018 and could change.)


The Splatoon 2 Ultra Stamp is going to be a rather unique special weapon, in that you can move forward to stamp the ground ahead of you, jump and stamp other players, or throw the stamp at someone. Here is the official description of how it works, from the official Tumblr.


We just uncovered more details about an upcoming new special weapon! The Ultra Stamp lets players attack with an enormous hammer. Pressing and holding the ZR Button allows you to advance while striking with the hammer! It looks like you can guard ink attacks coming from the front, but your back is exposed.

If you press the ZR button while you’re in the air, the Ultra Stamp will flip vertically so you can attack opponents mid-air. You can also throw the stamp with the R button to attack a distant opponent! Of course, throwing away your special weapon will end your attack.
