Splatoon 3 New Weapons Include a Remixed Brush and Sniper

The Octobrush Nouceau is a variant of the existing Octobrush weapon. This time, it features a wider area-of-affect, but will be less mobile and cost more ink to use. It comes with the Squid Beakon subweapon and Ink Storm special ability that will allow canny players to deny large areas to their opponents while bringing in reinforcements. The Custom Goo Tuber is a variant of the original Goo Tuber, a sniper-type weapon in Splatoon 3. While the Custom version has the same stats as the original, it comes with new kit focused on close range encounters with Fizzy Bombs and the Ultra Stamp special.

Ahead of the new Drizzle season, Nintendo showed off some of the new additions coming to the catalog. A new splatfest and amiibos for the 3 members of Deep Cut were also announced as part of the Splatoon 3 1st anniversary celebration.

Splatoon 3 is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch, with the new weapons coming in the Drizzle season on September 1, 2023.
