Custom Hydra Splatling

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Custom Hydra Splatling is a main weapon in Splatoon. It is a Hydra Splatling with Custom branding and a different loadout.

The Hydra Splatling must be charged up to fire a continuous spray of ink, like all splatlings. It distinguishes itself from the others by having the longest range and slowest charge time. It is the only splatling capable of splatting opponents with three ink bullets, as it has an exclusive high-damage feature that activates when the weapon is fully charged. The Hydra Splatling's weight class is heavyweight, so mobility will be impaired when it is equipped, even when not attacking with the weapon. Each full charge consumes 35% of the ink tank capacity, allowing players to fire only two full charges (or five half charges) before needing to refill their ink supply.

Trivia

  • In Splatoon, at Cash 29,900, the Custom Hydra Splatling is the most expensive Splatling, and the second most expensive weapon in the game.
  • After the Custom Hydra Splatling's release, Nintendo had stated that it would be the last downloadable weapon coming to Splatoon.
    • However, on 3 March 2016 Nintendo Direct presentation contradicted this. It showed at least eight new weapons that would be released.
  • At Cash 33,300, the Custom Hydra Splatling is the most expensive splatling and the most expensive weapon in Splatoon 2.
  • While this weapon does have enough power to take down a Booyah Bomber in a single full charge, the timing is so precise the player may have thrown their bomb by the time you break the armor. Main Power Up and Object Shredder can help with this.

Etymology

Custom Hydra Splatling is derived from Custom; Hydra, a mythological multi-headed water monster, and a portmanteau of Splat and Gatling. Hydra may also be short for Hydrant, since the Custom Hydra Splatling is based on a fire hydrant in design. The prefix Custom is also used to differentiate it from the Hydra Splatling. This trait is shared among the other alternate sets of the Custom brand.

ハイドラントカスタム Haidoranto Kasutamu is derived from Hydrant and Custom. Hydrant refers to a fire hydrant. Like the English name, "Custom" is also used to differentiate it from Hydrant.
