Grizzco Slosher

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Grizzco Slosher is a Salmon Run and Salmon Run Next Wave exclusive rare weapon in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. It appears to be an illegitimately modified[1] Sloshing Machine.

Description

The weapon is an extremely slow slosher, with a long wind-up time and very long range. More specifically, it is similar to the Dynamo Roller with respect to flick speed, range, and ink consumption. The projectiles from this weapon are very similar to those of the Sloshing Machine, albeit much larger, with a significantly slower travel speed, and the projectile will not arc, instead traveling straight forward and falling straight down at its maximum range. The ink trail left by the projectiles is dropped in chunks, rather than gradually.

The defining factor that sets the Grizzco Slosher apart is its unique ability to pierce through any armor, similar to the Sting Ray. The Grizzco Slosher can hit targets directly and continue to travel through them. This piercing ability also allows the weapon to attack through Scrapper and Drizzler armor, Slammin' Lids and their force fields, and the ink walls of Steel Eels and Grillers. It can also deal direct damage to Flyfish and Steelheads, even if they are not in a vulnerable state. The weapon has a very high ink consumption, only allowing for a maximum of 4 shots with a full tank.

Appearance

The Grizzco Slosher is somewhat similar in appearance to the Sloshing Machine. However, the paint job on the Grizzco Slosher seems to have been removed, revealing the metal beneath. The Grizzco Slosher has four mismatched metal tubes sticking out from the sides, a white Grizzco logo on the side, and some extra tubes and wires in the back.

In Splatoon 3, along with the other Grizzco weapons, it has four yellowish tubes of ink attached to one side.

The Grizzco Slosher returns in Splatoon 3, and is once again only available during wildcard rotations in Salmon Run. It was first available on 23 December 2022 at 16:00 UTC

Data

  • The Grizzco Slosher is a middleweight weapon.
  • The ink consumption of 25% per shot allows the user to fire 4 times on a full ink tank.
  • After firing, there is a 80 frame cooldown before ink starts refilling.
  • When initially attacking in humanoid form, the first shot takes 30 frames to come out.
  • When initially attacking from swim form, the first shot takes 36 frames to come out.
  • The movement speed while firing is set to 0.02 units per frame.
  • The time between consecutive swings is 45 frames.
  • The interval between firing and being able to enter swim form or use a sub weapon is 25 frames.
  • The effective range is about 20 units while grounded and 20 while airborne.
    • This is the distance in which the crosshair will change shape when looking at an opponent and is otherwise arbitrary since sloshers do not use traditional falloff mechanics.

Central ink glob

  • The group consists of only 1 projectile.
  • The group starts spawning as soon as the lifting animation ends.
  • The projectile spawns with an initial speed of 0.2 units per frame while grounded, and 0.2 units per frame while airborne. It flies straight at this speed for 100 frames.
    • After this, the velocity is set to 10.0 units per frame if it is not already below this number, and decreases by 10% every frame, including the first frame in which it stops flying straight. Once the shot velocity decreases below a certain threshold, it will begin to be slowed more and fall faster.
  • The projectile deals 360 damage.
    • The damage is not reduced by the projectile falling.
  • The projectile spawns with an initial collision radius of 0.025 units for players and 0.01 units for the stage. Over the course of 5 frames, the collision radius for players changes to 0.25 units, and over the course of 4 frames, the collision radius for the stage changes to 0.1 units.

Ink spiral

  • The group contains 4 projectiles that spawn consecutively 4 frames apart from each other.
  • The group starts spawning 2 frames after the lifting animation ends.
  • The first projectile spawns with an initial speed of 0.2 units per frame while grounded, and 0.2 units per frame while airborne. It flies straight at this speed for 100 frames.
    • After this, the velocity is set to 10.0 units per frame if it is not already below this number, and decreases by 10% every frame, including the first frame in which it stops flying straight. Once the shot velocity decreases below a certain threshold, it will begin to be slowed more and fall faster.
    • Each subsequent projectile spawns with an initial speed that is 0 units per frame slower than the last.
  • The projectiles deal 150 damage.
    • The damage is not reduced by the projectile falling.
  • The first projectile spawns with an initial collision radius of 0.05 units for players and 0.0 units for the stage. Over the course of 5 frames, the collision radius for players changes to 0.5 units, and over the course of 4 frames, the collision radius for the stage changes to 0.0 units.
    • For subsequent projectiles, the initial collision radius is 0.05 units larger than the previous projectile for players, and 0 units smaller for the stage. After the collision size changes, the radius is 0.5 units larger than the previous projectile for players, and 0 units smaller for the stage.

Details

  • The initial swing of the weapon is significantly slower than subsequent swings.
  • Because shots drop straight down at the end of their path, a shot can hit many targets in one shot, splatting Stingers in a single shot.
