The Ink Armor is a special weapon from Splatoon 2 that functions similarly to the Bubbler special weapon, negating up to 30 points of damage before it breaks. The player can still attack with their main weapon and sub weapon when Ink Armor is activated. Unlike the Bubbler, the Ink Armor's effect is applied to all team members when activated, no matter the distance from the activator to the teammate, and is not susceptible to knockback from enemy fire. The Ink Armor's effect ends for a player when the duration of the special expires or more than 30 damage is taken in total, and will immediately begin to receive damage as usual.
Ink Armor does have a caveat, however, in that players are much easier to notice in squid form due to the armor providing glowing eyes. This makes escapes and sneak attacks more difficult to pull off. The glowing-eyes effect cannot be mitigated by Ninja Squid, although the ability still hides the player's ink ripples while swimming like usual.
- ▼ Shortened the period of invulnerability after the Ink Armor is destroyed by 8/60 of a second.
- ▼ When hit with more than 100.0 points of damage at once while Ink Armor is active, any damage exceeding 100.0 points is dealt to the player and now knocks them back significantly. (The maximum amount of damage the Ink Armor can absorb at once is 80.0 points.)
