L-3 Nozzlenose D

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The L-3 Nozzlenose D is a main weapon in the Splatoon series. It is an alternative version of the L-3 Nozzlenose.

Appearance

Main article: L-3 Nozzlenose#Appearance

The L-3 Nozzlenose D in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 is nearly identical in appearance to the L-3 Nozzlenose, with the only difference being the presence of an added decal of the "Dolphin" logo on the hose.

In Splatoon 3, the L-3 Nozzlenose D has undergone a noticeable visual change, setting it further apart from its standard counterpart: its build is now significantly lighter in color, with most of the frame becoming white and all of the darker blue elements shifting to a significantly lighter shade. It retains the dolphin decal.

Data

  • The L-3 Nozzlenose D is a middleweight weapon.
  • Each shot consumes 1% of the ink tank capacity.
    • This allows players to fire 100 shots before needing to refill the ink supply.
    • This stat can be changed with Ink Saver (Main).
  • When pressing ZR, three shots will be fired at a time, as long as there is enough ink to fire all three.
    • If there is not enough ink to fire all three shots, then zero, one or two shots will be fired instead, depending on how much ink is left in the ink tank.
  • When firing a burst, a shot is fired every 4 frames.
  • After the last shot in a burst is fired, another burst cannot be fired for 8 frames.
  • When firing while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.5 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 25 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Each shot has a base damage of 29.
  • Shots travel straight for 5 frames. After that, they may lose damage. A shot will lose damage until it reaches 14.5 damage at frame 15.
  • Shots have a radius of 2 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 1 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 6 degrees.
  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. The outer reticle will finish shrinking after 60 frames.
  • The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle increases by 2% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle.
    • This means that it takes 13 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 4 frames after the player stops shooting.
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 22 units per frame for 5 frames. Shots travel straight for 110 distance units.
  • Ink droplets occur every 116 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.5 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 10 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 23 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 23 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 16 units.

  • The interval between firing and when the player is able to enter swim form or use a sub weapon is 4 frames.
  • When pressing , three shots will be fired at a time, as long as there is enough ink to fire all three.

    • This chance increases by 1% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 24 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 4 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 0.5% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 52 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (82 after shooting while jumping.)

    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 15.68 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 120 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.5 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 12 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 19.5 units, and a width of 10 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.4 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 19.5 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 15.5 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • If no ink droplets have occurred within 11 units of the player for 3 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet. This ensures that the player's feet will always be inked after three bursts.

Sheldon's Introduction

The L-3 Nozzlenose D is a special model of the L-3 Nozzlenose with the maker's logo emblazoned on it! The two have the same stats, but this one pairs with Burst Bombs, letting you continually barrage your enemies! Easy to handle, the L-3 Nozzlenose(sic) is great for the aggressive player who wants to attack with precision and hit baddies with the Inkjet!

Sheldon's Introduction

The L-3 Nozzlenose D is a special model of the L-3 Nozzlenose with the maker's logo emblazoned on it! But you know that's not all... it also has a fancy-schmancy new loadout! Including Burst Bombs to weaken foes a bit before finishing 'em off with your main weapon. And the special? None other than the Ultra Stamp, guaranteed to send anyone in your path running for cover. Don't underestimate the amount of ink you can fling with this setup, but it is a quirky combo. If you feel like making a big mess and experimenting, I hope you'll give it a try!

Let's keep it rolling with a video of the L-3 Nozzlenose D, a new design of the L-3 Nozzlenose. It comes with Burst Bombs to help weaken foes before hitting them with a burst of ink from the 'nose. And the Ultra Stamp special stamps HARD, no matter where enemies try to hide.
