The Herobrush Replica is visually identical to the Level 1 Herobrush but is simply a re-skinned Octobrush. Therefore, unlike the switchable sub weapons of the Herobrush, it comes with Autobombs and the Inkjet. To unlock the Herobrush Replica, the player must complete every level with the Herobrush in Octo Canyon, in which it becomes available for purchase at Ammo Knights.

  • The increase to movement speed while inking with the maximum number of Main Power Up gear abilities equipped has been raised from roughly 10% to roughly 12%.
  • The effect provided by Main Power Up is now more easily triggered, even with fewer instances of the gear ability equipped.
  • Main Power Up will also improve painting while rolling.

  • Unlike every other Hero weapon where the replica is based on the main weapon in its class or sub-class, the Herobrush Replica is based off the Octobrush and not the main brush weapon, the Inkbrush. This is presumably due to the fact the Octobrush is a more rounded weapon, with higher range and damage, and to provide a Hero-centric counterpart to the Octarian-based Octobrush. This may also be because the Octobrush was released with the launch of Splatoon 2 but the Inkbrush was not, although the fact that the Hero Brella Replica was based off the Splat Brella, which was also post-release content, disputes this.
