Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Bamboozler 14 Mk I is main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Bamboozler 14 Mk I has an extremely high charge rate, the highest of the chargers, allowing shots to be fired off in quick succession. It also has decent range and mobility. However, while it is the quickest charger, it is also the weakest; it cannot splat an enemy in one hit, even when fully charged. However, unlike other chargers, the range remains constant regardless of its charge.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Bamboozler 14 Mk I is a modernized working replica of a weapon once used by a legendary commander! Its nostalgic appearance is faithful to the weaponry of the time, but its range and firepower aren't great. However, it charges quickly and is pretty powerful at max range, so set up that Splash Wall and get sniping! Oh, and it also features the powerful Killer Wail! Step into the shoes of the legendary captains with this classic!(NA)[a]

"A reissue of a weapon used during the Great Turf War. It charges up extremely quickly and boasts great range even when not fully charged. Unfortunately, it is rather weak."

The Bamboozler 14 Mk I is a tribute to a weapon used by the leader of a legendary squid squad, but it’s been retooled for the battles of today! I’ve used bamboo in my version to remain faithful to the original design, but as a trade-off it can’t store a charged shot. It lacks the damage of some other chargers, but it has a good rate of fire and provides decent mobility when fully charged! With the included Curling Bombs, you can be effective at any range! When the time’s right, you can also unleash the Tenta Missiles!
