The Angle Shooter is a sub weapon in Splatoon 3. It travels quickly in a straight line, bouncing off surfaces and damaging and marking enemies.

Appearance

The Angle Shooter resembles a highlight marker. The label wrapped around the Angle Shooter features the Nouveau logo and other Inkling text. Like the Point Sensor, enemies tagged by the Angle Shooter are encircled by a translucent black arrow and tied to members of the user's team with a line of the user's ink color, although each line is only visible to the member it leads to.

Description

The Angle Shooter is a fast-moving projectile that travels in a straight line and bounces off any surface except grating until it reaches its maximum travel distance or hits an enemy, briefly leaving behind a team-colored trail. Enemies hit by the Angle Shooter are damaged, and those that get hit or touch its lingering trail are tagged similarly to the Point Sensor, allowing them to be seen through barriers by the user and their teammates.

Quotes

A sub weapon that fires straight forward and leaves a line in its path. Opponents that are hit directly will take damage, and those that touch the remaining line will be marked. When a shot hits a solid surface, it will bounce off of it and continue in a straight line.
— In-game description
Squid Research Lab coming to you directly with a report about a new sub weapon that's as direct as they come. The Angle Shooter launches a perfectly straight line far into the distance and will reflect off any surfaces it encounters. It's more exciting than it sounds - trust us!

Imagine bouncing an Angle Shooter off the walls of a narrow corridor, pinning down a rival. If they touch the line, they take damage... so while they hesitate, you pounce with your heavy main weapon and ink 'em up good! Take that, Gary! I mean... if your rival's name is Gary.

The Angle Shooter is as direct as they come. This new sub-weapon shoots a straight line into the distance that bounces off surfaces. Enemies who touch the line are marked and take damage, helping you pin them down to splat with your main weapon!
