The special is very similar in function to the Bomb Rush special from Splatoon, but allows players to throw the bombs farther and with greater accuracy. It separates itself from the Bomb Rush since the bombs fired are not dependent on the player's sub weapon, although the bombs are not affected by sub weapon altering stats and the remaining bombs thrown during the special do not fill the special gauge after time is up.

Unlike any other weapon in Splatoon, the Bomb Launcher is thrown from the left side of the Inkling and not from the right side.


Version History (Curling-Bomb Launcher)

Version Adjustments
  • Increased distance S2 Weapon Sub Curling Bomb.png Curling Bombs travel without being charged by roughly 50%.
  • Decreased trajectory variance of first shot while also increasing time required to reach maximum shot variance when firing continuously.
  • As a sub weapon, the size of Curling Bombs will now change depending on how long the R button is held, but Curling Bombs generated by the Curling Bomb Launcher will always be the same size, regardless of button press duration.
    • Due to this change, area of ink coverage while Curling Bombs are traveling has been increased slightly.
    • Due to this change, area of ink coverage and damage dealt by Curling Bomb explosions has been decreased slightly.

  • While on the Bomb Launcher's rail, the bombs are inside gashapon capsules, and the two halves of the capsule can be seen being discarded as each bomb is thrown.
  • As visible in the promo image, the Bomb Launcher has its own ink reservoir, explaining why throwing bombs during the special does not drain the player's own ink.
  • While active, the Bomb Launcher plays a chiptune version of the intro to "Bomb Rush Blush".
  • Before the release of the S2 Weapon Main Bamboozler 14 Mk II.png Bamboozler 14 Mk II, data mining had already revealed in-game data for the S2 Weapon Special Burst-Bomb Launcher.png Burst-Bomb Launcher, including images for its weapon icon.
