Custom Hydra Splatling

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

The Custom Hydra Splatling is a main weapon in Splatoon. It is a S Weapon Main Hydra Splatling.png Hydra Splatling with Custom 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 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 March 3, 2016 Nintendo Direct presentation contradicted this. It showed at least eight new weapons that would be released.

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 S Weapon Main Hydra Splatling.png Hydra Splatling. This trait is shared among the other alternate sets of the Custom 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.
