Splatoon Shows How To Juggle Multiple Weapons To Your Advantage



It’s been a while, but Nintendo have released another Splatoon weapon demonstration, this time focusing on the .52 Gal and the Splash Wall weapons.


“It appears the trick is to use the Splash Wall as a sub-weapon and go around the front lines to stop the enemy,” Nintendo say.


As previously reported, the .52 Gal is a precision weapon that uses up more ink per shot, but is designed to have increased power.Meanwhile, the Splash Wall, which is equipped as a sub-weapon in the video, is capable of stopping enemies from advancing. You can only erect one at a time. Finally, the video also shows off the Killer Wail, which can be equipped as a special weapon.


Look out for Siliconera’s playtest of Splatoon later this week, prior to its release on May 29th.
