Octobrush

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Octobrush is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Octobrush is similar to the S Weapon Main Inkbrush.png 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.
