|Sub Weapon||Squid Beakon|
The Octobrush is similar in appearance and use as the Inkbrush, but has a slightly wider ink trail and slower movement speed. It spreads more Ink with each swing than the Inkbrush, though at a slower rate. It also has increased range, flinging ink much further than the Inkbrush. Three swings will usually splat an enemy. The Squid Beakons can be used for quick returns and early team jumps to central areas.
|“||A heavier brush with fatter bristles. Uses a lot of ink but offers a wider ink trail and excellent mobility. Can be swung to fling large globs of ink.||”|
