Goo Tuber

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

The Goo Tuber is a main weapon in Splatoon 2. This weapon can hold a full charge for an exceptionally long time in comparison to other chargers. This allows players to get to a better vantage point or sneak up on enemies with a full charge. Its charging time takes slightly longer than a S2 Weapon Main Splat Charger.png Splat Charger, and the range is slightly shorter. Each fully charged shot consumes 15% of the ink-tank, allowing users to fire six shots before needing to refill.
