Drop Roller is an ability in Splatoon 2. The ability is exclusive to shoes, and cannot be rolled as a sub ability.

Drop Roller allows the player to roll after performing a Super Jump or when jumping back to the Ink Jet's starting point by tilting Button1 LS.png in the desired direction. The roll is similar to the one provided by the S2 Weapon Main Splat Dualies.png Splat Dualies, albeit much slower.

This ability is useful for survival after super jumping to a dangerous location. When a player super jumps, a marker appears to all players indicating the location the player will jump to. Opponents may wait near the marker to splat the player. Drop Roller makes it possible to dodge the first attack by opponents waiting for them.

Mutual exclusivity

This ability is found as the main ability only on shoes, so other abilities found only on clothing are mutually exclusive with it; in other words players cannot have them together. These abilities are S2 Ability Object Shredder.png Object Shredder and S2 Ability Stealth Jump.png Stealth Jump.
