Jump to navigation Jump to search

The N-ZAP '83 is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. It is a Sheldon's Picks-branded variant of the N-ZAP '85 and comes with a different sub and special. It has a similar color scheme to the Famicom, an early version of the NES which was released in 1983 only in Japan, hence its name.

Appearance

The N-ZAP '83 shares its build with the N-ZAP '85. However, its barrel and handhold are maroon instead of gray, the body is a dark wheat color instead of white, and the trigger is black instead of red. The side of the handhold features additional buttons derived from the Famicom's standard controller.

An N-ZAP '85 remodeled by Sheldon. The design is strangely nostalgic. The original weapon was better suited to a support role, but this version lets you jump right into the fray with a Kraken.

But that's not a bug – it's a feature, right? The Point Sensor and Kraken make for a set that is handy for cutting off your opponents' advance.

  • The N-ZAP '83 starts off having a 1% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
    • 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 5 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 53 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (83 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 22 units per frame for 4 frames. Shots travel straight for 88 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 14.495 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 110 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.4 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 11 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 18 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 1.48 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 16 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 11.6 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 4 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet.

Sheldon's Introduction

The N-ZAP '83 is a replica of a weapon shrouded in legend. The original was only produced for a short time, but I brought it back! Support the main weapon with the fire-and-forget Sprinkler sub, and bring on the rain delays with the Ink Storm special! If you value aggressive inking and want to take a trip down memory lane, this set's for you!

Trivia

  • This weapon is based on the early 1983 version of the Family Computer, which has square Button1 A.png and Button1 B.png buttons.
  • As opposed to the N-ZAP '85 and the N-ZAP '89, the N-ZAP '83 has no real-world equivalent due to the Famicom's zapper being modeled and colored to resemble a real-world revolver.
