The Heavy Splatling Remix is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. It is a Heavy Splatling with a different loadout and a different color scheme.

The Heavy Splatling is capable of firing bursts of ink with high range, low damage, and a fast rate of fire. Although relatively slow to charge, each ink bullet does enough damage to splat opponents with four hits.

Appearance

The Heavy Splatling Remix is nearly identical in appearance to the Heavy Splatling. In Splatoon, the only difference between the two is that the Heavy Splatling Remix has a sticker bearing the Chirpy Chips logo on the front and going onto the side of the water jug. In Splatoon 2, the sticker is still present, but unlike the Splatoon 2 Heavy Splatling, the Heavy Splatling Remix's water jug is still horizontal to the gun instead of being changed to diagonal.

Data

  • While Main Power Up increases the number of shots fired, it does not increase the ink consumption relative to the amount charged, making the weapon comparatively more ink efficient.
  • The Heavy Splatling Remix is a middleweight weapon.
  • The matchmaking range is 210. Splatoon 2 matchmaking looks at a team's average matchmaking range value, and matches them against a team with a similar average.
  • The full charge ink consumption of 22.5% and ink tank capacity of 100% allows players to fully charge 4 times before needing to refill the ink tank.
  • The Heavy Splatling Remix cannot store its charge.
  • The Heavy Splatling Remix is not rechargeable while firing.
  • When charging the weapon, it will take 50 frames in order to charge its first ring and 75 frames in total for a full charge.
  • With a single ring charged, it will have a firing duration of 72 frames. With a full charge, it will have a firing duration of 144 frames.
  • When charging with an empty tank, the charge time is multiplied by 4.
  • When firing, it shoots a bullet every 4 frames.
  • When firing, the player's movement speed is set to 0.7 units per frame.
    • When charging, the player's movement speed is set to 0.62 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 40 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Each shot has a base damage of 30.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 11 frames after being fired, it loses 1.875 damage per frame until it reaches 15 damage at frame 19.
  • Shots have a radius of 2 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 3.3 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 7 degrees.
  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. After 25 frames, the outer reticle will start shrinking, and will finish shrinking after 70 frames.
  • The Heavy Splatling Remix has a 30% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 30%.
  • Within the first charge ring, initial shot velocity scales from 10.5 to 21 units per frame. Within the second charge ring, initial shot velocity is always 21 units per frame. Shots travel straight at the initial velocity for 8 frames.
    • So at maximum charge, shots travel straight at a rate of 21 units per frame for 8 frames. Shots travel straight for 168 distance units.
  • After shots stop flying straight, the velocity is set to 15.105 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 200 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 8 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 18 units, and a width of 0 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.6 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.28 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 17 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12.6 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.6 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.6 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • If no ink droplets have occurred within 11 units of the player for 0 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet.

Trivia

  • The Heavy Splatling Remix appears to be a Chirpy Chips-themed weapon: it has a sticker on the side with their name in Inkling, its color scheme is similar to that of their album art, and "Remix" may be a reference to their electronic style. However, this connection is never addressed in-game.
  • While the Heavy Splatling Remix did not initially appear in Splatoon 2 (as it was added in Version 4.6.0), the Heavy Splatling comes with a similar build, except with the Sting Ray replacing the Killer Wail.
  • Unlike the other variants of the Heavy Splatling, the Heavy Splatling Remix completely retains its appearance from Splatoon in Splatoon 2. Notably, the ink drum is still in a horizontal position rather than a tilted position that other Heavy Splatling variants assume. This trait is shared with the Soda Slosher.

Etymology

Heavy Splatling Remix is derived from the adjective Heavy and a portmanteau of Splat and Gatling plus the word Remix. Remix refers to the fact that the weapon is a remodeled Heavy Splatling, similar to how remix is used in musical media. Remix is also likely a reference to Chirpy Chips and their electronic music style, since the design of the Heavy Splatling Remix is inspired by them.

バレルスピナーリミックス Bareru Supinā Rimikkusu is derived from Barrel and Spinner plus Remix. The name Barrel Spinner is because the barrels of the Heavy Splatling Remix rotate while charging and firing. Remix has the same reasoning as the English name.
