Gear is the combined form of headgear, clothing, and shoes that Inklings and Octolings can wear. Gear comes with various abilities that provide effects for the player in battle. Gear can be acquired in shops, through SplatNet 3, or through amiibo, ordered through Spyke or Murch, or by other means, depending on the item.

Each piece of gear has a brand and a star power that affects its abilities. Most brands have an increased likelihood of rolling a particular ability when a slot is unlocked, as well as a decreased likelihood of a different ability. Its stars affects how many ability slots a piece of gear has by default and the amount of experience required to unlock those slots.

Dress your Inkling in sweet gear, complete with bonus abilities that boost your stats.

Shopping at Shella Fresh in Splatoon 2.

The primary source for gear is in shops. Shops include Booyah Base in Splatoon and the Galleria in Splatoon 2, both of which contain stores for headgear, clothing, and shoes. Items purchased from shops will always have their default main ability and a default number of ability slots, but shops offer the lowest prices on gear items.

Shops sell gear for cash. On any given calendar day, a shop will have a selection of items for sale. The items available will be selected at random from the pool of items that the player is eligible to buy. The items available in the shop cycle out at midnight according to the system clock (in Splatoon) or at midnight UTC (in Splatoon 2 and 3). The exact items a player is eligible to buy depends on their level.

Gear that is already owned cannot be purchased again from shops, unless they have been purchased from SplatNet 2 or ordered from Murch with a non-default ability. In Splatoon 3, duplicate gear can be bought to increase the currently owned gear's star power.

Spyke and Murch

Ordering gear through Murch.

Gear can be ordered through Spyke and Murch. While interacting with other players in Inkopolis Plaza (Splatoon and Splatoon 3), Inkopolis Square (Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3), or Splatsville (Splatoon 3), their gear can be ordered. After shop rotation, Spyke or Murch will have the next ordered item available for purchase.

Players can have up to three gear items ordered at a time, but only one order will be fulfilled each calendar day. The first item ordered will be the first order fulfilled. The items offered for purchase by Spyke or Murch may not have the same secondary abilities as the ordered gear item, and the price will be significantly more than the item would cost in its respective shop.

Any gear item(s) not collected from previous Season's catalogs in Splatoon 3 cannot be ordered until they have first been obtained from the Shell-Out Machine.

Most gear items from the following gear brands cannot be ordered:

The only exceptions are the four Cuttlegear clothing introduced in Splatoon 2 version 3.0.0, which appear in shops and can be ordered through Murch as standard gear:

In addition, the following individual gear items are exclusive promotions and cannot be ordered:

SplatNet 2

Ordering gear through SplatNet 2.

In Splatoon 2, players can use SplatNet 2 to order gear with main abilities not otherwise available for any given item. Gear ordered this way can immediately be purchased through Murch in-game.

Six gear items are available for order at a time. Every two hours, a new gear item is made available, and the oldest gear item is removed from the list. Only one gear item can be ordered from SplatNet 2 at a time: ordering a second item will cancel the order for the first one.

SplatNet 3

In Splatoon 3, players can use SplatNet 3 to order gear like with SplatNet 2. Unlike SplatNet 2, nine gear items are available for purchase at once. Six items with alternate abilities are available to purchase, adding a new one every four hours and removing one at the same time, and three gear items of a specific brand being offered each day through a feature known as The Daily Drop, updating at 00:00 UTC.
