Dualie Squelchers

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Dualie Squelchers are a main weapon in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. They are a re-imagining of the Dual Squelcher from Splatoon; if the player performs a dodge roll, their character will connect their Dualie Squelchers, effectively converting them into the Dual Squelcher. The weapon's accuracy is improved in this post-roll state.

Compared to the Splat Dualies, the Dualie Squelchers have a slightly faster roll and are not locked into place, but suffer from an overall reduced firing rate and no fire rate increase after rolling. They have the second most range of any dualie-type weapon in the game since the release of the Douser Dualies. Shots do enough damage to splat opponents with four hits.

Appearance

The Dualie Squelchers are nearly identical in appearance to the Dual Squelcher's top and bottom parts. However, the tube that connects the two halves of the Dual Squelcher is exclusive to the right Dualie Squelcher.

The Dualie Squelchers come with Point Sensor and Tenta Missiles. They were released on 29 July 2017 at 02:00 UTC.[1]

It appears in three Octo Expansion stations:

Data

  • The Dualie Squelchers is a middleweight weapon.
  • The matchmaking range is 170. 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 ink consumption of 1.2% and ink tank capacity of 100% allows players to fire 83 shots before needing to refill the ink supply.
  • When initially firing the weapon in humanoid form, the first shot takes 3 frames to come out.
  • When firing from swim form, the first shot takes 12 frames to come out.
  • The interval between firing and when the player is able to enter swim form or use a sub weapon is 4 frames.
  • When firing continuously, it shoots a bullet every 6 frames (10 shots per second).
  • When firing while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.72 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 20 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Each shot has a base damage of 28.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 9 frames after being fired, it loses 0.875 damage per frame until it reaches 14 damage at frame 25.
  • The bullet hitbox for collisions with players has a radius of 2 units.
  • The bullet hitbox for collisions with the environment has a radius of 2 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 4 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 8 degrees.
  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. After 25 frames, the outer reticle will start shrinking, and will finish shrinking after 70 frames.
  • The Dualie Squelchers starts off having a 4% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
    • This chance increases by 2% per shot, and maximizes at a 30% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 13 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 6 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 1% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 32 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (42 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 23 units per frame for 5 frames. Shots travel straight for 115 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 22.698 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 90 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 2 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 8 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 19.7 units, and a width of 11 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.4 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 16.5 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.

Rolling

  • Each roll consumes 8% of the ink tank capacity.
    • This stat can be changed with Ink Saver (Main).
  • The player can roll 2 times without interruption. After this, there is a delay before the player can roll again.
  • The Dualie Squelchers cannot shoot while rolling. Shots will only fire once the rolling animation is completed.
  • After performing a roll, it shoots a bullet every 6 frames.
  • After rolling, there is a 60 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Damage output does not change after rolling.
  • After rolling, shots have a radius of 2.5 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate in the post-roll state is 2 degrees.
  • After performing a roll, the two individual reticles will merge into a single reticle and chance to shoot towards the inner reticle is immediately set to 100%.
  • The full animation of the roll will last 24 frames before player control resumes.
    • Upon regaining control, the player will be forced to maintain their position for 30 frames.
  • The shot velocity and shot travel distance remains the same in the post-roll state.

Quotes

Sheldon's Introduction

The Dualie Squelchers are dualie versions of the Jet Squelcher. They feature an exceptional combination of highly accurate rapid fire after rolling, with longish range! You can pinpoint your opponents' positions with the Point Sensor and Tenta Missiles, making you a real nuisance to the enemy team! And you can dodge-roll away from opponents who get close! I recommend them for nimble fighters who want to support their team!

  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. After 25 frames, the outer reticle will start shrinking, and will finish shrinking after 70 frames.
  • The weapon starts off having a 4% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
    • This chance increases by 2% per shot, and maximizes at a 30% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 13 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 6 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 1% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 32 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (42 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 2.3 units per frame for 5 frames. Shots travel straight for 11.5 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 2.2698 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and it loses 36% of its speed every frame (including the first frame after it stops traveling straight). Once the shot velocity decreases below a certain threshold, it will begin to be slowed less and fall faster.
  • The effective range is about 14.86 units.
    • This number may vary at different firing angles.

Rolling

  • Each roll consumes 8% of the ink tank capacity.
  • The user can roll 2 times without interruption. After this, there is a delay before the player can roll again.
  • Rolls cover an initial distance of 3.5 units during the rolling animation, plus an additional 1.0 units of sliding afterwards.
  • After performing a roll, it shoots a bullet every 6 frames.
    • The ink consumption per shot remains the same, so the player can fire for 8.33 seconds on a full ink tank after rolling.
  • After rolling, there is a 60 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Damage per shot does not change after rolling.
  • After rolling, shots have a radius of 0.25 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate in the post-roll state is 2.0 degrees.
  • After performing a roll, the two individual reticles will merge into a single reticle. The rate of shot deviation remains the same.
  • The Dualie Squelchers cannot shoot while rolling. Shots will only fire once the rolling animation is completed.
  • The rolling state can be broken down as follows:
    • After a 4 frame startup, the roll animation lasts for 12 frames, after which a second roll can be inputted, if available.
    • After the roll completes, it takes 8 frames before the user can fire the weapon or move. After an additional 24 frames, the user will regain their rolls and reenter a normal state if they move or stop firing.
    • In total, this takes 48 frames.
  • The shot velocity and shot travel distance remains the same in the post-roll state.
  • Rolling creates a pool of ink with a radius of 1.8 units.

Quotes

Sheldon's Introduction

Do you know the Jet Squelcher? Would you like to have two of them? Good, because that's what Dualie Squelchers offer! If you don't know the Jet Squelcher, it features the ability to fire off extremely accurate and fairly rapid shots after executing a roll. And now you have TWO of them! Meanwhile, you can sniff out enemies with both the Wave Breaker special and your Splat Bombs. I call it the "see it, splat it" strategy. If you like to stick and move with accurate shots across a long distance, I recommend you give this loadout a try!

Trivia

  • The way the player holds the Dualie Squelchers after performing a dodge roll makes them appear nearly identical to the Dual Squelcher. Only the upper barrel fires after rolling, similarly to the Dual Squelcher.
  • The fact that the Dualie Squelchers appear to be the Dual Squelcher but split in two is supported by the fact that it is the only asymmetrical design of the dualie class, like that the top half and bottom half of the Dual Squelcher do not have reflectional symmetry.
  • The appearance of the weapon is highly reminiscent of power drills.
  • The Dualie Squelchers are unique in the fact that the player can move immediately after a dodge roll. And no less unique is the use of a jump immediately after performing the first dodge roll.
  • When coming out of the dodge-roll stance, the Dualie Squelchers make a click sound when they separate.
  • In Splatoon 3, Sheldon notes the Dualie Squelchers' ability to "stick and move" in its description, likely referencing Stick 'n' Move Station, which features the weapon.
