Splatoon 3

Use

The REEF-LUX 450 is both a support and slayer-type weapon, part of the Stringer class. Similar to the Tri-Stringer, this weapon launches a trio of ink bullets that can immediately splat enemies if charged long enough. Dissimilarly, this weapon charges faster, can hold a full charge in swim form, but cannot fire exploding projectiles.

  • The REEF-LUX is a support weapon because:
    • Its fast fire rate and excellent turfing ability allows it to provide map control for teammates.
    • Its paints for the special Tenta Missiles, which help your team push forward to certain areas on the stage.
  • The REEF-LUX is a slayer weapon because:
    • It can charge its fatal ink bullets almost instantly, similar to the Squiffer.

Synergy

  • As a slayer, this weapon does well with backup from frontline slayers and/or supporting fire from other support weapons, as this weapon is not as independent as others.
