Hivemind Antenna

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Hivemind Antenna is headgear in Splatoon 2.

It is a 3-star item produced by SquidForce and comes with the primary ability Comeback. It was released via the Splatoon 2 Switch News channel as a promotion for the Chaos vs. Order Splatfest. It can also be purchased from SplatNet 2 Gear Shop for Cash 11,700.


The Hivemind Antenna is a pair of shades, possibly made of galvanized metal. An antenna protrudes from each side of the shades, pointed upwards and slightly outwards. Each antenna is topped with a glittery orb. The shades are totally opaque, except for two narrow rectangular windows for the wearer to see out of, one for each eye. The color of the windows and the orbs on top of the antennae change color to match the wearer's ink.

The Hivemind Antenna comes with Comeback as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Last-Ditch Effort, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity. When purchased from SplatNet 2, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to headgear. As a 3-star item, the Hivemind Antenna comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the SquidForce gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.
