Inkbrush

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Inkbrush is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

As a roller-class weapon, the Inkbrush can be pushed along the ground while leaving a trail of ink. Much like the S Weapon Main Splat Roller.png Splat Roller, the Inkbrush can be used as a sort of melee weapon that splatters some ink in front of the player. Of all weapons in its class, the Inkbrush travels at the highest speed and leaves the most narrow trail. The high rolling speed can be used to quickly escape or approach an enemy. It has the lowest damage output in its class; four flicks (or five bumps while rolling) are needed to splat an opponent. The Inkbrush consumes 2% of the ink tank capacity per flick, allowing the player to fling 50 times before needing to refill the tank.

The Inkbrush is most comparable to the S Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush, another paintbrush-like weapon. The Inkbrush is faster and more ink efficient, while having less range and dealing less damage per glob of ink.

The weapon is designed with a paint tube in the middle, connected to paintbrush bristles and a blue handle with a textured black grip. The paint tube shows the player's ink color on the label, and a glob of the player's ink coats the bristles.

The Inkbrush was released on June 5, 2015. It comes in a set with the S Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler and the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike.

When using the Inkbrush, the player's Inkling will hold the weapon on the right hand side of its body. Usually this has no effect on the gameplay, but if a player makes a sharp left turn while in enemy ink, they will get stuck in the ink.

When flicking the Inkbrush, there is a random chance that more than one glob of ink will hit the opponent.
