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 charge for an exceptionally long time in comparison to other chargers, being able to hold a charge for 5 seconds as opposed to other chargers which only last 1 second. This allows players to get to a better vantage point or sneak up on enemies with a full charge. The weapon also bears the ability to store incomplete charges. 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.

The Goo Tuber is the only charger that can splat opponents with a single partially charged shot, as any shot charged at roughly 67% or more deals over 100 points of damage.

Etymology

  • Goo Tuber's Japanese name is "Soy Tuber". This weapon resembles a siphon pump aka shōyu pump (醤油ちゅるちゅる Shōyu Churu-churu).
  • Ever since the change made to the Goo Tuber in version 2.2.0, its minimal damage for a non-charged shot is 40.0 at 8 frames, and the theortical damage for a 99.99...% charged shot is 130.0 at 74.99... frames.
    • However, due to the game operating in complete frames, it is impossible to have a partial charge at any more than 74 frames, or 98.51% (66 effective charging frames out of a possible 67).
    • This also means that the minimal charge time for a one-shot kill is 53 frames (45 charging frames out of a possible 67), for a 67.16% charge dealing 100.4 damage.
