It is a 2-star item produced by Inkline and comes with the primary ability Opening Gambit. It must first be unlocked through leveling up the Drizzle Season 2022 Catalog to level 59, then it can be purchased from Naut Couture for 9,800 from SplatNet 3 Shop for 14,700. It can only be ordered from another player after being unlocked.
The Beachcomber is a wide-brimmed straw hat with a visible, woven structure. It features a striped string acting as a hatband and toggle, which changes color to match the wearer's ink. The toggle has a tiny, black adjuster resembling a squid, with the string looped beneath it. The crown's front is adorned with an Inkline label and another one with the old version is sewn to the brim's left side.
When displayed in a Locker in Splatoon 3, this gear is placed on a black mannequin head.
The Beachcomber comes with Opening Gambit as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, or Tenacity. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 2-star item, the Beachcomber 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, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash 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 Inkline gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Sub Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Intensify Action to fill its secondary ability slots.
