Sheldon's Introduction

The .52 Gal Deco is a standard .52 Gal with a little extra flair added by pro designers! Its stats aren't any different, but it does come with S Weapon Sub Seeker.png Seekers to open up new battle tactics. And with the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike as its special, this set allows you to really dominate the battlefield! (NA)[a]

A rhinestone-encrusted S Weapon Main .52 Gal.png .52 Gal. Your opponents will have little time to admire it as you run them down with S Weapon Sub Seeker.png Seekers and assail them with the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike.
— In-Game Description (EU/OC)[b]
Same as the S Weapon Main .52 Gal.png .52 Gal, but the loadout grants you more mobility with S Weapon Sub Seeker.png Seekers and greater offensive capability with S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike. This loadout is great for Splat Zones-- use Inkstrike from a distance to contest Splat Zones. Use the Special Charge Up ability in place of Run Speed Up, as Seekers already give the .52 Gal Deco plenty of room to navigate a Stage quickly.
— Splatoon Prima Guide
The .52 Gal Deco looks so fresh Inklings apparently mistake it for a guitar. Interesting.

  • The .52 Gal Deco starts off having a 2% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
    • This chance increases by 4% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 6 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • When not shooting, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 0.5% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 46 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (76 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel at a rate of 22 units per frame for 4 frames, having an effective range of 88 units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 18.472 units if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it falls to the ground.
  • Ink droplets occur every 55 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 2.4 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 5 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 19.7 units, and a width of 13 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.45 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 16.5 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 13 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • If no ink droplets have occurred within 11 units of the player for 2 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet.

Sheldon's Introduction

The .52 Gal Deco is a standard S2 Weapon Main .52 Gal.png .52 Gal with a little extra flair added by pro designers! This set comes with S2 Weapon Sub Curling Bomb.png Curling Bombs to quickly close in on opponents or smoke them out with a well-placed wall bounce! And for those opponents that try to keep their distance, make 'em pay with the S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray! I'd recommend this for savage players born without a self-preservation instinct!

Etymology

.52 Gal Deco is short for .52 Gallon with the suffix Deco, short for either Decorated or Decoration. Deco may also refer to Art Deco. "Gal" is also a play on Cal, the short form of Caliber, a term commonly used when describing the diameter of bullets for firearms. The suffix Deco is also used to differentiate it from the .52 Gal. This trait is shared among the other alternate sets of the Deco brand.

.52ガロンデコ .52 garon deko has the same origin as the English name, but without Gallon shortened to Gal. Like the English name, Deco is also used to differentiate it from .52 Gallon.
