The new and improved Fresh Squiffer is a Classic Squiffer retooled to allow a different approach. Pairing Suction Bombs with the Squiffer makes it even easier to get the upper hand in battle, and you can quickly turn the tables on foes with the Kraken! Definitely not a set for squids who are afraid to get their tentacles dirty!

The Fresh Squiffer is a Charger in Splatoon, first announced during the Nintendo Direct on March 3, 2016. It is one of eight weapons included in Sheldon's Picks Vol. 1 and was released at 02:00 UTC on April 13.[2]

Description

The Fresh Squiffer is a recolored New Squiffer, keeping the red and yellow starburst sticker, with a different Sub and Special Weapon. Its Suction Bombs and Kraken allow the user a more aggressive play style in contrast to the New and Classic Squiffer's defensive and supportive styles.

A Classic Squiffer set remixed by Sheldon. Pairing bombs with the Squiffer makes it even easier to get the upper hand in battle.

Sheldon's Introduction
"The new and improved Fresh Squiffer is a Classic Squiffer retooled to allow a different approach.

If your foes are laying low, Suction Bombs will let you easily smoke them out from wherever they're cowering.

But if they're going on the offensive instead, no need to worry! Turn the tables on them with the Kraken!
This is definitely not a set for squids who are afraid to get their tentacles dirty!"

Competitive Viability

Even as arguably the best squiffer in the game, the Fresh Squiffer is still quite the challenge to use in a competitive game. The weapon struggles from not being able to get kills from a distance like a normal charger, and must get up close and personal. The problem with this is excellent aim is required for this to work, and a missed shot is brutal, with enemies able to rush up should you have missed. The Suction Bomb sub is nice for pressuring opponents into areas that make shots easier, and the great Kraken is always a huge plus. However, should one dedicate the time and effort into mastering the weapon, there will be extremely few counters to the Squiffer, and is almost impossible for any weapon with less range to approach or challenge it, effectively placing it in the top tiers of weapons in Splatoon competitively
