The .52 Gal Deco looks so fresh Inklings apparently mistake it for a guitar. Interesting.

The .52 Gal Deco is a Main Weapon in Splatoon. It is a bedazzled version of the .52 Gal, with a different Sub and Special Weapon.


The .52 Gal Deco is in a set with the Seeker and Inkstrike. Each shot uses a large amount of ink, so it packs a serious punch. Since it has a low rate of fire, careful aiming is required in order to hit opponents.

A bedazzled .52 Gal shooter. Your opponents may laugh at you...until you run them down with Seekers and the almighty Inkstrike.

A rhinestone-encrusted .52 Gal. Your opponents will have little time to admire it as you run them down with Seekers and assail them with the Inkstrike.

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 Seekers to open up new battle tactics.

And with the Inkstrike as its special, this set allows you to really dominate the battlefield!



Same as the .52 Gal, but the loadout grants you more mobility with Seekers and greater offensive capability with 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.

Name Origin

.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, short form of Caliber, a term commonly used when describing the diameter of bullets for fire-arms. 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.
