Sheldon's Introduction

My grandpappy's blueprints inspired me to update the S Weapon Main Classic Squiffer.png Classic Squiffer set. I call it the New Squiffer! Use the S Weapon Special Inkzooka.png Inkzooka to keep foes at bay as you surround your territory with deadly S Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mines! Charger-type weapons are generally offensive, but a defensive style can be surprisingly effective too!(NA)[a]

Sheldon has used the blueprints to adjust the sub and special setup. Trap your opponents in a sticky situation with the S Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png sub, or deliver a long-range strike with the S Weapon Special Inkzooka.png special.

— In-Game Description(EU/OC)[b]
While this weapon shares the upsides and downsides of the S Weapon Main Classic Squiffer.png Classic Squiffer, the addition of S Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mines, in particular, add effectiveness to hit-and-run attacks and objective control. With no S Weapon Special Bubbler.png Bubbler to keep you safe, consider using the S Ability Defense Up.png Defense Up ability so you can absorb more damage.

Sheldon's Introduction

The New Squiffer offers the same main stats as the S2 Weapon Main Classic Squiffer.png Classic Squiffer, but it offers a more offensive style! Pressure your opponents with an S2 Weapon Sub Autobomb.png Autobomb, and splat 'em when they come out into the open! And when you're under pressure, use the S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller to rush the enemy or retreat. This baby is made for ultra-aggressive players.
