Sheldon's Introduction

The .96 Gal is a shooter that hits hard and has long range, courtesy of its large chamber and extended barrel! Of course, with that, you can't expect much from the fire rate, so make each shot count as you use the S2 Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler to spread ink! Also be sure to support your teammates with the S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor! I recommend this for tactical players who want to squash their opponents in an all-out war!

The .96 Gal is an improved version of the S Weapon Main .52 Gal.png .52 Gal, with more stability, range, and power. However, it consumes ink extremely quickly. This weapon comes in a set with the S Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler and S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator.

Similar to the .52 Gal, but with an improved mechanism and a more stable shot. Range and power have been increased...at the cost of being even more ink hungry.

Sheldon's Introduction

The .96 Gal's main weapon has an extra-large ink tank, allowing for powerful shots with a lot of range! And the S Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler and S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator can be used to keep foes riiiiiiight where you want them.

So it's an excellent weapon for fighters who want to control the pace of battle!(NA)

Demonstration

Version history

2.7.0

  • Damage per shot: 62 → 52
  • Spread reduced by about 11%.
  • Special gauge loss: 50% → as low as 40%

Recommended Abilities

The .96 Gal is an extremely ink-hungry weapon, so mitigating this is a good idea, with Ink Recovery Up allowing for long term and frequent map presence.
With the Version 2.7.0 update, the .96 Gal can be reduced to a 3-hit kill with just one Defense Up main ability or 3 Defense Up sub-abilities. Since the .96 Gal fires slowly for a shooter, a single extra hit needed makes a significant difference, so at least a small amount of Damage Up is strongly recommended.
Ink Resistance Up allows more maneuverability and speed while walking or swimming through it, and is effective in escaping tough situations, particularly when out of ink to reduce damage taken and increase the probability of survival
