Splatoon 2 Gets a Fresh New Weapon to Kick Off the Holidays

Splatoon 2 is going to be receiving a brand new weapon just in time for the holiday season.

If inking some squids is more your fancy this holiday season, you’ll be happy to hear that the development team behind Splatoon 2 is rolling out a brand new weapon you can get your tentacles on this holiday season.

In a posting to the official Splatoon 2 page on Tumblr, the Squid Research Lab revealed the Squeezer. The weapon is a new type of shooter with multiple different firing modes. Squeezing the trigger once will result in a single, high-powered ink shot. Holding down the trigger will allow players to fire continuously. Squids should fire the weapon repeatedly when facing other Inklings and use its high-powered mode to ink turf.

In other Splatoon 2 news, two big updates hit the game late last month and earlier this month. They added two new maps to the game as well as a new mode, weapons, and more.

If you’re thinking about grabbing Splatoon 2 alongside your Nintendo Switch this holiday, you can check out our review by our very own Ryan Meitzler. In typical Nintendo fashion, the game has been receiving a ton of free updates since its launch in July.

Splatoon 2 is available right now exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out some new screenshots of the Squeezer in action down below.
