Splatoon's Update 2.7.0 Brings 8 New Weapons; Check Out Half of the Arsenal

Fan-favorite Splatoon has an update and small maintenance coming April 12, 2016. And while we don’t know the full patch notes yet, the announcement on Splatoon’s official Tumblr page mentioned that eight new weapons would be making an appearance. Dubbed “Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 1, half of the weapons have been shared (seen in the pictures below).

Nightly players should be aware that like all Splatoon updates, there will be a short server maintenance from 7:50 – 9:00 PM Eastern. Splatoon is exclusively available on Wii U — check out the new weapon photos below.

Fresh Squiffer
