Like all rollers, the Gold Dynamo Roller can cover turf while in motion and fling a large amount of ink at medium range. This weapon is identical to the Dynamo Roller in terms of range, speed, weight, and power. It comes in a set with the Splat Bomb and Inkstrike, and can only be purchased after collecting the Sunken Scroll from the DJ Octavio Boss Battle.

Damage Up significantly increases the Dynamo's effective range to splat, preventing even more enemies from escaping and allowing for greater ease in splatting.
As the Dynamo Roller is one of few weapons to have its base swim speed reduced, Swim Speed Up serves to mitigate said reduction and enable the Dynamo Roller to have greater mobility in splatting and generally completing the objective.
The heavy ink consumption of the Gold Dynamo Roller may also necessitate Ink Recovery Up, which increases the ink recovery rate in squid form, allowing the a player wielding the Gold Dynamo Roller to spend less time recharging their ink tank, and allowing players to refill their ink tank whilst swimming behind the seeker
Getting stuck in ink is a death sentence for the Gold Dynamo Roller, because of its slow flick speed. Ink Resistance Up will make the player less likely to get stuck in ink.
A surprise Gold Dynamo Roller is devastating to the enemy team, especially on Tower Control. Equip Stealth Jump to jump to safely jump to a location that catches the enemy off guard.
This ability works best for the Dynamo Roller, serving every need a Dynamo Roller player could ask for. Swim Speed mitigates the swim speed reduction of the roller, Ink Saver Main allows players to gain one additional flick with the Dynamo, and Ink Recovery allows players to have greater map presence. This ability fares extremely well with the Dynamo. More frequent deaths are common with the Dynamo Roller with an aggressive playstyle, thus Haunt allows for regular tagging of opponents for the entire team.
At 20% ink consumption per flick, the Gold Dynamo Roller is the most ink-hungry roller type. Ink Saver (Main) can be a valuable asset for suppressing the enemy with repeated flicks, by reducing the amount of ink used per flick. Just 1 main and 1 sub of this ability will afford the player a 6th full-powered flick.
