.96 Gal

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

The .96 Gal is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

A member of the Shooter class, this weapon distinguishes itself by sacrificing accuracy, fire rate, ink efficiency, and mobility for a powerful shot and a long range. The .96 Gal outputs enough ink in each shot to splat opponents in two hits. Consequently, the weapon has a high ink consumption rate of 2.5% per shot, making it the ink-hungriest of all weapons in the Shooter class (excluding Blasters) and only allowing for 40 shots to be fired per ink tank. The weapon's fire rate is slower than all other Shooter-class weapons (excluding Blasters) , measuring at slightly slower than the S Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush's flick rate. A major drawback of the .96 Gal is its poor accuracy; many shots deviate far enough to the left or right that they miss the target. The .96 Gal and its close relative the S Weapon Main .52 Gal.png .52 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.
