The Dapple Dualies Nouveau are a main weapon in Splatoon 2. They are the Nouveau version of the Dapple Dualies.

Compared to the Splat Dualies, this weapon lets the player perform quicker dodge rolls and inflict more damage, but it has a shorter range and a shorter roll distance to offset its effectiveness in close quarters.

The Dapple Dualies deal enough damage to splat opponents in three hits, unlike the Splat Dualies and Dualie Squelchers which need to land four hits to splat an enemy. Each shot consumes 0.7% of the ink tank, allowing the player to fire 142 shots before needing to refill. Each roll consumes 5% of the ink tank. In the post-roll state, the weapon's firing rate is 20% faster than normal, and its accuracy is improved as well.
