The Dual Squelcher is a main weapon in Splatoon. In Splatoon 2, it was converted into Dualie Squelchers.

It is similar to the Jet Squelcher, but has a higher rate of fire at the cost of range and power. The fire rate is faster than the Splattershot Pro and slower than the Splash-o-matic.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Dual Squelcher adds a manifold mechanism to the S Weapon Main Jet Squelcher.png Jet Squelcher for extreme range and firing rate. Claim turf, fire out those S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocators, and then attack the opponents' position with S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs! So I'd recommend it if those kinds of tricksy tactics happen to be your style! (NA)[a]

A double-barreled S Weapon Main Jet Squelcher.png Jet Squelcher with a much higher rate of fire. The power of each shot is low, but the ample range and firing rate make up for it.
— In-Game Description
Compared to the S Weapon Main Jet Squelcher.png Jet Squelcher, the Dual Squelcher has a little less range, but makes up for it with a slightly faster fire rate. The Dual Squelcher comes with S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs and S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator. This is really nice for supporting your teammates and giving them cover fire. Selecting the S Ability Ink Saver (Sub).png Ink Saver (Sub) ability over S Ability Ink Saver (Main).png Ink Saver (Main) is best due to the amount of ink the Splat Bomb needs. Another ability to strive for is S Ability Bomb Range Up.png Bomb Range Up, so you can throw those Splat Bombs at a greater distance, eschewing the need to get close to your opponents.

Trivia

  • Not counting the transition from E-liter 3K to E-liter 4K, the Dual Squelcher is the only main weapon to not return in Splatoon 2. Instead, it was mechanically changed and converted into the Dualie Squelchers.
  • The Dual Squelcher only fires through the top barrel. The bottom barrel is simply cosmetic.
