Dynamo Roller

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Dynamo Roller is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Dynamo Roller can cover turf while in motion and can fling a large amount of ink at medium range. Compared to the Splat Roller, this roller is much slower but covers a larger area while rolling and throwing ink. It has the greatest range of all the roller class weapons, but sacrifices speed; it rolls slowly when pushed, and it takes over a second to fling ink. The slow ink-flinging windup animation leaves the player vulnerable when attacking, as no other actions may be performed while readying the fling, and it is not possible to cancel a fling once initiated. The Dynamo Roller's weight class is Heavy, so mobility will be impaired when it is equipped, even when not attacking with the weapon.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Dynamo Roller is a roller I designed myself upon using my granddad's blueprints! It wound up with incredible power, but the dynamo motor does weigh it down a bit... oh, well. Anyway, ink turf with the S Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler and track enemies with the S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator, and you'll be winning in no time!(NA)[a]

Using the blueprints as a starting point, Sheldon has rigged up a motor to the roller base. Cumbersome to use, but delivers a powerful burst of ink when swung.

The Dynamo Roller returns in Splatoon 2, with minor appearance changes but significant performance changes. It comes with Ink Mines and the Sting Ray. Each flick consumes 18% of the ink tank capacity, allowing for 5 flings before needing to refill on ink. Jumping before flinging ink will perform a long-range attack, the vertical swing. The vertical swing paints a long path of ink and damages distant opponents. If it hits, the vertical fling can splat a Steelhead in only one shot.

Data

  • The Dynamo Roller is a heavyweight weapon.
  • Ink consumption per second while rolling scales from 1.2% to 6% depending on the rolling speed.
  • When rolling, the player's movement speed is set to 0.88 units per frame.

    • This stat can be changed with Ink Saver (Main).
  • When attacking with a nearly depleted ink tank, the ink consumption of that attack is reduced to 9%. The damage of that attack is reduced to 25% of the normal amount.
  • When attacking while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.24 units per frame.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Dynamo Roller is a roller I designed myself using a power generator for high strength and long range! The motor does weigh it down a smidge, but the S2 Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mines wait until someone gets too close before splashing ink everywhere! And the S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray can take down enemies from a comfortable distance! The set appeals to those too stubborn to give up inked turf.

Trivia

Etymology

Dynamo Roller is derived from Dynamo and Roller. Dynamo is a type of an electrical generator, which the Dynamo Roller seems partly based on.
