The Barrelfish Headgear is headgear in Splatoon 3.

It is a 2-star item produced by Forge and comes with the primary ability Run Speed Up.

It can only be ordered from another player after being unlocked.

The Barrelfish Headgear comes with Run Speed Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 2-star item, the Barrelfish Headgear comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Forge gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) to fill its secondary ability slots.

Translation notes

  1. Strepers is a made-up team-like name. It may be a reference to the striped beakfish—which is also mentioned in the Japanese name—the stripes of baseball kits, and/or the stripes of military ranks.
