Astro Helm

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Astro Helm is headgear in Splatoon 3.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-, 1-, or 2-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run Next Wave as the monthly gear for December 2022 or in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered through Murch.


The Astro Helm is a white flight helmet with a raised crest and a dark translucent face visor. Around the crest and on the forehead and ears are markings that match the wearer's ink color. The ear covers are molded to resemble spiral shells, and there are small scratches across the surface of the helmet.

The Astro Helm comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity as they are exclusive to Headgear and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. As a 2-star item, the Astro Helm comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Grizzco gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • The Astro Helm seems to be based off of the Rebel X-Wing Pilot helmets from the Star Wars franchise (notably Return of the Jedi). It complements the Astro Wear, which is likewise based on the corresponding uniform.
