Not long ago, Nintendo confirmed that Splatoon and Splatoon 2 weapons would return in the third game. Since then, the company’s been focusing on some specific pieces of equipment. The latest ones to show up ahead of Splatoon 3‘s debut again are two Rollers, specifically the Splat Roller and Dynamo Roller.

The Roller weapons are designed to focus on applying as much ink as possible to maps. These are based on paint rollers. When used, a player will run with the Roller on the ground, laying down ink until they run out. Someone can also tap to “fling” ink while jumping, which can be used to spread ink from a distance or attempt to hit a foe.

First, here’s a look at the typical Splat Roller as it shows up in Splatoon 3. It appeared in all three entries.

Next, here’s how the Dynamo Roller will look in Splatoon 3. It’s also appeared in all three entries.

The other types of Roller are the Carbon Roller and Flingza Roller. The former appeared in every game. The latter debuted in Splatoon 2.

Splatoon 3 will come to the Nintendo Switch on September 9, 2022.
