Octosquid Tandem Tee

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Octosquid Tandem Tee is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

It is a 0-star item produced by SquidForce and comes with the primary ability Intensify Action. It can be purchased from Man-o'-Wardrobe for Cash 300 or from SplatNet 3 Shop for Cash 750.


The Octosquid Tandem Tee is a short-sleeved T-shirt made from two shirts attached to each other. On the left is a larger black shirt, and on the right is a smaller yellow shirt. Both parts have a large design printed on them. The shirt also features a squid and octopus pin button, with differing placement based on whether the player is using the masculine or feminine style (pinned to the black or yellow sides, respectively). The shirt can be changed into an oversized version using the 'Adjust Gear' feature; the adjusted version always places the pin button as in the masculine style.

The Octosquid Tandem Tee comes with Intensify Action as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 0-star item, the Octosquid Tandem Tee comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will add a secondary ability slot per level, up to a maximum of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the SquidForce gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.
