Description

Splatoon

A modified version of the N-ZAP '85. However, the N-ZAP '89 is equipped with a set more tooled for turf coverage, with its Sprinkler Sub Weapon, and its Special Weapon: The Inkstrike.

A follow-up to the N-ZAP '85, now with a sleek orange paint job. The sub and special have changed too, but its popularity remains as high as ever.
— In-game Description
Ah yes, the N-ZAP ‘89. This is quite simply an N-ZAP '85 that was redesigned for… well, definitely not legal reasons. No siree. Nothing to see here. Lawyers definitely did not have anything to do with this. It includes a Sprinkler to rapidly increase your turf, allowing you to fire off remarkably fast Inkstrikes! This set is excellent at striking where the foe least expects it. Good for lone wolves and those nostalgic for the good ol’ days! The N-ZAP ’89 is available now!

Trivia

  • Similar to the N-ZAP '85, the N-ZAP '89 is based on the American version of the NES Zapper, which was made orange in May of 1989 after the Federal Energy Management Improvement Act of 1988 was passed, requiring toy guns to look drastically different from real guns. This is referenced in Sheldon's description of the weapon, stating the design had to be changed due to "legal reasons".
  • This is the first weapon released that is a re-skin of another DLC weapon.
