Some Splatoon Special Weapons will return in Splatoon 3 with new forms and functions. Nintendo brought up two of the specials that will be back. Depending on the weapon you might equip in Splatoon 3, you might have access to the new Killer Wail 5.1 or Big Bubbler.

The Killer Wail started out as a Splatoon Special Weapon. When used, it sounds out paint as sound, even going through walls. Though unlike other specials, it only causes ink to spread when an opponent is splatted by the attack. Instead of one speaker, the Splatoon 3 Killer Wail 5.1 involves six floating ones. These send out similar “beams” that can target multiple individuals.

The Big Bubbler Splatoon 3 Special Weapon is a variation of the Splatoon Bubbler. In the original game, triggering it would cause a temporary bubble to form around the player. The Big Bubbler, when used, is set up in a specific area. That means the person who made it appear and others around could take advantage of its temporary protection from ink.

Splatoon 3 is in development for the Nintendo Switch and will appear in 2022.
