The Octobrush was released as free DLC on July 18, 2015 at 02:00 UTC. It is similar in appearance and use as the S Weapon Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush, 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. The S Weapon Sub Squid Beakon.png Squid Beakons can be used for quick returns and early team jumps to central areas.

A heavier brush with fatter bristles. Uses a lot of ink but offers a wider ink trail and excellent mobility. Can be swung to fling large globs of ink.
