Cold-Blooded is an ability in Splatoon, and a retired ability in Splatoon 2.

Cold-Blooded shortens the duration of position-tracking effects inflicted on the wearer.

Tactics

Cold-Blooded is rather versatile, as any weapon or play style can benefit from not being tracked. However, it reaches its full potential when used with a stealthy and mobile weapon, such as the S Weapon Main Carbon Roller.png Carbon Roller or S Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush as it can enhance the sneakiness of a weapon, facilitating ambushes. A loud or otherwise conspicuous weapon may give itself away to surrounding enemies, no tracking needed.

In Splatoon 2, Cold-Blooded was a stackable ability that was available on any gear type. It could stop the tracking effects of S2 Weapon Sub Point Sensor.png Point Sensors, S2 Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mines, S2 Ability Thermal Ink.png Thermal Ink, S2 Ability Haunt.png Haunt, and S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray.

In version 4.3.0, Cold-Blooded was retired, and its effects got combined with Bomb Defense Up to make a new ability: S2 Ability Bomb Defense Up DX.png Bomb Defense Up DX. The default ability of all gear with Cold-Blooded (except the Gray FA-11 Bomber, Pearlescent Crown and Fringed Loafers) was changed to S2 Ability Main Power Up.png Main Power Up, while existing gear with the Cold-Blooded ability was overwritten with S2 Ability Bomb Defense Up DX.png Bomb Defense Up DX.
