.52 Gal

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The .52 Gal is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

A member of the Shooter class, this weapon distinguishes itself by outputting enough ink in each shot to splat opponents in two hits, while still having a decent rate of fire. The weapon's fire rate is lesser than the S Weapon Main Splattershot Pro.png Splattershot Pro and greater than the S Weapon Main .96 Gal.png .96 Gal. Its only major drawback is its poor accuracy; many shots deviate far enough to the left or right that they miss the target. The .52 Gal and its close relative the S Weapon Main .96 Gal.png .96 Gal share their visual design and high-damage, low-accuracy performance.

The weapon is designed with a water cooler bottle as a base. A grip, sight, and high-caliber gun barrel are clamped to the bottle. The parts surrounding the bottle are black plastic with pink accents, while the bottle matches the player's ink color.

Trivia

  • The .52 Gal's name may be a reference to its base damage per shot of 52. The S Weapon Main .96 Gal.png .96 Gal's damage per shot is not 96, however.
  • The .52 Gal was originally called the "5.2 Gallon" came with the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike instead of the S Weapon Special Killer Wail.png Killer Wail. This can be seen in an image from before Splatoon's release.
