The Octobrush is similar to the Inkbrush in appearance and use, but has a slightly wider ink trail and slower movement speed. It spreads more ink with each swing than the Inkbrush, though at a slower rate. It also has increased range, flinging ink much further than the Inkbrush. Three swings will usually splat an enemy.
Each flick of the brush consumes 3.2% of the ink-tank capacity, allowing players to flick 31 times before needing to refill.
- ▲ Special gauge loss: 50% → as low as 40%
- ▲ When repeatedly using swinging attacks, ink will also be painted where you are standing.
