Sheldon's Introduction

The N-ZAP '85 is a shooter with excellent ink efficiency and rapid-fire capability! Its attack power isn't all that, but you can use its features to ink turf quickly as you pursue your opponents! Use the S2 Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bombs to further stick it to the baddies, and as you close in on them, pop your S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor and watch them squirm! This weapon is the very definition of "reliable." I recommend it for players who put a big emphasis on ink coverage!

The N-ZAP '85 was the first weapon to be added to the game as downloadable content. It was released on June 1, 2015 alongside the stage Port Mackerel and Ranked Battles. It highly resembles the original North American NES Zapper, which was released in 1985 alongside the NES , hence the name. It's weaker than the Splattershot but it makes up for it with a higher rate of fire. It comes with S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs and the S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator.

Each shot is kind of weak, but the high rate of fire makes up for it. This weapon's popularity is due not only to its helpful special but also to its snazzy futuristic design.
— In-Game Description
A new weapon called the N-ZAP ‘85 has been added to Splatoon! It’s apparently based on the design of something called the NES Zapper that was released in 1985? Doesn’t ring a bell. While it’s not the most powerful weapon out there, it’s got a great rate of fire and it comes in a set with Splat Bombs and the Echolocator.

Tips

  • Its fast fire rate and high spread allows faster turf cover. It is more recommended than the Splattershot for turf coverage.
  • Due to the weak range and high fire rate, it is recommended going up close to land more hits quickly.
  • Because of its incredible movement speed, stacking more movement such as Run Speed Up and Swim Speed Up will allow for very quick movement, making it much more challenging for opponents to hit you
  • Damage Up is also recommended, at least one main's worth, to insure that it stays as only 4 hits to kill against most players who use Defense Up

Countering

  • Catch them off guard and splat them before they can react.
  • Use longer ranged weapons, such as the Splatterscope, to splat players using this weapon, as their weak fire range will make it challenging for them to engage you from a distance.
  • Take advantage of the weak damage of each shot, and finish them quickly

Trivia

  • This weapon is based on the 1985 version of the NES Zapper. The name N-ZAP '85 also derives from this.
  • While this weapon has nearly identical stats to the Splattershot Jr., it fires straight instead of spreading shots in random directions, giving it better accuracy at the cost of spreading ink slower.
