The Barrelfish Baseball Hat is headgear in the Splatoon series.

It is a 2-star item produced by Skalop and comes with the primary ability Ink Saver (Main). It must first be unlocked through leveling up the Fresh Season 2024 Catalog to level 41, then it can be purchased from Naut Couture for Cash 11,500. It can only be ordered from another player after being unlocked.

Appearance

The Barrelfish Baseball Hat is a fitted baseball cap with baby-blue paneling, scarlet pinstripes, a scarlet button and eyelets, and a scarlet brim adorned with a brown Skalop logo sticker. The front of the cap also features a stylized stitching of a fish (given its features likely a striped beakfish, as named in the Japanese name of the cap), itself also wearing a baseball cap. The rear of the cap features a small logo that appears to be a pastiche of the Major League Baseball or National Basketball Association logo (this same logo is also seen on various other sport-themed gear items as well as in Goby Arena in Splatoon 2).

Abilities

The Barrelfish Baseball Hat comes with Run Speed Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 1-star item, the Barrelfish Baseball Hat comes with two 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, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 2 stars will add another secondary ability slot for a total of three slots. 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 Forge gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) to fill its secondary ability slot.
