Appearance

The Black Arrowbands are a pair of glasses with black frames. The rims are somewhat round and have tiny metal studs towards the hinges. The sides change color to match that of the wearer's ink and are connected by a thick black arrow shaped strap in the back. On the left side, as well as the back of the strap, is the Inkling text from the Zekko logo in white.

Abilities

The Black Arrowbands come with Tenacity as the primary ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, or Opening Gambit. As a 2-star item, the Black Arrowbands come with two additional slots for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail or 30,000 cash for each slot. Since they are made by the Zekko gear brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Special Saver and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill their secondary ability slots.
