The Five-Alarm Helmet is headgear in Splatoon 3.
In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-, 1-, or 2-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run Next Wave as the monthly gear for January 2023 or in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered through Murch.
The Five-Alarm Helmet is a firefighter helmet that changes with the player's ink color. It features a wide brim that extends longer in the back, ridges descending from the crown, and a black chinstrap. On the forehead is some Inkling language text. Between the ridges are reflective yellow safety patches.
The Five-Alarm Helmet comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity as they are exclusive to Headgear and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. The Five-Alarm Helmet may appear as a 0-star item with one additional slot for secondary abilities, a 1-star item with two additional slots for secondary abilities, or a 2-star item with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Grizzco brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.
Five-alarm is the highest intensity of multiple-alarm fire.
