Commander Cap

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Commander Cap is a piece of headgear in Splatoon 3.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-, 1-, or 2-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run Next Wave, first as the monthly gear for June 2023, and later in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered through Murch.


The Commander Cap is teal colored cap with a silver badge and small silver star on the left side of it, with a yellow stripe circling around the center and splitting off to curve downward on the right side. Like the Commander Tunic, it seems to be based on a side cap, or "wedge" worn by some officers in military's such as the Red Army[1], The US Armed Forces[2] and many other military's.

The Commander Cap comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity as they are exclusive to Headgear and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. The Commander Cap may appear as a 0-star item with one additional slot for secondary abilities, a 1-star item with two additional slots for secondary abilities, or a 2-star item with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Grizzco gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.
