How to obtain

The news article through which the gear could be obtained is no longer available, so the original method does not work anymore.

Original Method Used to Obtain

  1. Open the Nintendo Switch News application and select the article about FrostyFest.
    • The article is titled Free download! Celebrate FrostyFest with this wintry in-game gear.
    • If the article is not visible, subscribe to Squid Research Lab Report (NA)[a] or Squid Research Lab Bulletin (EU)[b] and allow time for the news application to update with Splatoon-related news.
  2. Select the "Play Splatoon 2" button located at the bottom of the article to start Splatoon 2.
  3. Open the box that appears in the middle of Inkopolis Square.

If this does not work, start over at step 1, or view the video demonstration below.


The Twisty Headband comes with Special Power Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 3-star item, the Twisty Headband comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the SquidForce gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.
