The Hacker Jacket is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-, 1-, or 2-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run Next Wave, first as the monthly gear for January 2024, and later in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered through Murch.


The Hacker Jacket is a green jacket on top of a white shirt. The jacket is adorned with both various logos and gadgets including a wired glove strongly resembling the Mattel Power Glove.

The Hacker Jacket comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Ninja Squid, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink as they are exclusive to Clothing and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. The Hacker Jacket may appear as a 0-star item with one additional slot for secondary abilities, a 1-star item with two additional slots for secondary abilities, or a 2-star item with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Grizzco gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • The Hacker Jacket bears a striking resemblance to the jacket worn by Richard "Data" Wang from The Goonies.
