Ah, now, the Inkbrush Nouveau here offers the same stats as the S2 Weapon Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush but offers quite a different experience! Leave S2 Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mines for unsuspecting opponents and then rush them while they're reeling from the inky blast! Use the S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller for protection, allowing you to go places the standard Inkbrush set would never allow! This set is great for those who want to take their Inkbrush technique to the next level.
