The Big Swig Roller is a main weapon in Splatoon 3, created by the weapon brand Splat.

It was revealed in the Chill Season 2022 trailer on 14 November 2022 and was released on December 1, 2022.

Appearance

The Big Swig Roller has a plastic appearance, akin to a cup holder. A paper cup, being used as the ink tank, is held in a small bracket, and the plastic straw from it is fed into the roller sleeve to provide ink to the roller.

The Big Swig Roller comes with Splash Walls and the Ink Vac. It outputs large amounts of ink while rolling and flinging, similar to the Dynamo Roller, but it rolls and flings at a higher speed, similar to the Splat Roller. It also has a long-range vertical flick, similar to the Flingza Roller, and rolling does not splat opponents similar to the Carbon Roller. It was added along with Chill Season 2022 on 1 December 2022.

Quotes

Sheldon's Introduction

You ever think to yourself... "This roller is great, but what if it were WIDER?" If so, the Big Swig Roller may be just what you wanted! They've taken a regular roller and just... made the roller part bigger! The result is that you can lay down a veritable red carpet - or green, or pink, or... you get it - of ink. Horizontal swings also hit a wider range, and vertical swings launch farther. The drawback is that attack power is lower than other rollers. That may not be an issue when you're hiding behind a Splash Wall, or when you can guzzle enemy ink with the Ink Vac special, so the set is actually pretty well-balanced. If you can't stand to see even a single spot of un-inked turf, give this set a try!

We're back! Ballistics risked it all on that last tweet, and we're still here to announce the Big Swig Roller, arriving for Chill Season. It utilizes "wide-rolling technology," which allows you to, uh, cover a wide area. And since it barely SIPS ink, you can cover tons of turf!

Trivia

  • This is the only main weapon by the Splat brand that doesn't include the word 'Splat' in its name.

Etymology

The word "swig" refers to drinking a beverage in large gulps, referencing the weapon's design which includes cup and straw, alongside the larger area it turfs while rolling. Its name may also be a reference to the 7-Eleven drink line Big Gulp.
