The Custom Wellstring V made its debut along with the Wellstring V in Sizzle Season 2024. They were revealed together on Nintendo social networks on 17 May 2024. Its set is Point Sensor and Wave Breaker. The design is different from the Wellstring V in that the logo on the front side's colors now match the original Custom logo, and the color of the handle has been changed from a pale blue to gray.


  • The Custom Wellstring V is a heavyweight weapon.
  • The matchmaking range is 23. The game's matchmaking system looks at a team's average matchmaking range value, and matches them against a team with a similar average.
  • The Custom Wellstring V fires 5 arrows per shot.
  • Ink consumption scales with charge level. It starts at 7% of the ink tank at no charge, 8% of the ink tank at one charge circle, and 9% of the ink tank at full charge.
  • The Custom Wellstring V cannot store its charge.
  • If charged to the first circle or higher, the shots become explosive.
    • The shots explode after 45 frames (0.75 seconds), dealing 30 damage to players with a 2.0 unit radius.
  • The weapon cannot fire until it has charged for 12 frames. The first circle is reached after charging for 40 frames (0.67 seconds), and full charge is reached after 80 frames (1.33 seconds).
  • After firing, there is a delay before another shot can be charged. This delay is 12 frames at no charge, 15 frames at one charge circle, and 15 frames at full charge.
  • The delay between firing a shot (charged or uncharged) and submerging in ink is 10 frames.
    • When charging while out of ink, the amount of time it takes to charge is multiplied by 3. When charging in the air, the time it takes to charge is also multiplied by 3.
  • The movement speed while charging is set to 0.04 units per frame.
  • Initial shot velocity scales with charge level. It starts at 1.45 units per frame at no charge, 2.294 units per frame at one charge circle, and 3.5 at full charge.
    • Shots travel straight for 4 frames, regardless of charge level.
    • The effective range is 8.86 units at no charge, 14.02 units at one charge circle, and 21.39 units at full charge.
      • This number represents the range in which the crosshair changes shape when placed over an enemy. However, since stringer weapons do not have damage falloff, these numbers are otherwise arbitrary.
  • Damage scales with charge level. It starts at 24 damage at no charge, 24 damage at one charge circle, and 35 at full charge.
  • Arrow angle changes with charge level. It starts at 12.0 degrees at no charge, -4 at one charge circle, and -12.0 degrees at full charge.
  • The arrows fire 0.2 units apart from each other.



Sheldon's Introduction

This Custom Wellstring V uses, well, custom parts to pump new life into the Wellstring V! At bottom, it's just like the Wellstring V, but it's built more for team support. The Point Sensor and Wave Breaker are there to reveal your enemy's position. Once you have that, use your main weapon to block their retreat so your team can go all out! This weapon is looking for a good home with someone thoughtful, considerate, and eager to help create opportunities for their teammates.

The Custom Wellstring V will also be available! Its sub weapon is a Point Sensor and its Wave Breaker special weapon will help you detect hiding opponents so you can optimize those exploding arrows. It fires the same as Wellstring V, so choose based on your preferred kit.
