Gear is the combined form of headgear, clothing and shoes that Inklings can wear. Gear comes with various abilities that provide effects for the player in battle. Gear can be acquired in shops, through SplatNet 2, through amiibo, ordered through Spyke or Murch, or by other means depending on the item.

Each piece of gear has a brand and a rarity that affect its abilities. Most brands have an increased likelihood of rolling a particular ability when a slot is unlocked, as well as a decreased likelihood of a different ability. The rarity affects how many ability slots a piece of gear has by default and the amount of experience required to unlock those slots.

Dress your Inkling in sweet gear, complete with bonus abilities that boost your stats.

Shops

Shopping at Shella Fresh

The primary source for gear is in shops. Shops include Booyah Base in Splatoon and the Galleria in Splatoon 2, both of which contain stores for headgear, clothing and shoes. Items purchased from shops will always have their default main ability and number of ability slots, but shops offer the lowest prices on gear items.

Shops sell gear for S2 Icon Cash.png cash. On any given calendar day, a shop will have a selection of items for sale. The items available will be selected at random from the pool of items that the player is eligible to buy. The items available in the shop cycle out at midnight according to the system clock. The exact items a player is eligible to buy depends on their level.

Items that are already owned cannot be purchased again from shops.

Splatoon

The following gear shops are found in the Plaza:

Splatoon 2

Ordering

Spyke and Murch

Ordering gear through Murch

Gear can be ordered through Spyke and Murch. While interacting with other Inklings in Inkopolis Plaza (Splatoon) or Inkopolis Square (Splatoon 2), players can order gear. After midnight according to the system clock, Spyke or Murch will have the next ordered item available for purchase.

Players can have up to three gear items ordered at a time, but only one order will be fulfilled each calendar day. The first item ordered will be the first order fulfilled. The items offered for purchase by Spyke or Murch may not have the same abilities as the ordered gear item, and the price will be significantly more than the item would cost in its respective shop.

Any gear item with the following brands cannot be ordered:

The following individual gear items are exclusive promotions and cannot be ordered:

Splatoon 2 version 3.0.0 introduced Cuttlegear Cuttlegear gear that could be purchased in shops and ordered through Murch:

SplatNet 2

Ordering gear through SplatNet 2

In Splatoon 2, players can use SplatNet 2 to order gear with main abilities not otherwise available for any given item. Gear ordered this way can immediately be purchased through Murch in-game.

Six gear items are available for order at a time. Every two hours, a new gear item is made available and the oldest gear item is removed from the list. Only one gear item can be ordered from SplatNet 2 at a time: ordering a second item will cancel the order for the first one.

Abilities

Murch adding an ability slot

Each piece of gear has a main ability and up to three secondary abilities. Items ordered from SplatNet 2 will always have their main ability be different from the ability that ordinarily appears on that gear item.

The default number of secondary ability slots is determined by the rarity of the gear item: a 1-star item will have one secondary ability slot and so-on for 2- and 3-star. If fewer than three secondary ability slots are present on a gear item, additional slots can be added by Spyke or Murch.

By default, secondary ability slots are locked and have no ability. Through online battles, gear will gain experience and ability slots will be unlocked. The gear item's rarity determines the amount of experience required for each slot.

When a secondary ability slot is unlocked, a random ability is rolled for it. For most gear brands, a specific ability is five times as likely to be rolled while another specific ability is only half as likely to be rolled.

Trivia

Main article: Gear/Trivia
  • Both in Splatoon and Splatoon 2, over half the Star-full.pngStar-empty.pngStar-empty.png gear is clothing.
  • In Splatoon, exactly half the clothing is Star-full.pngStar-empty.pngStar-empty.png.
  • In Splatoon 2, there is only one fewer Star-full.pngStar-full.pngStar-empty.png item than there are Star-full.pngStar-empty.pngStar-empty.png items (140 versus 141).
  • For clothing in Splatoon 2 and all the categories in Splatoon, there are at least 3 different abilities which are the most common for that category.
  • In Splatoon, the brand that produces the most headgear is Forge Forge (14 items), the brands that produce the most clothing are Splash Mob Splash Mob and SquidForce SquidForce (16 items each) and the brand that produces the most shoes is Krak-On Krak-On (13 items).
  • In Splatoon 2, the brand that produces the most headgear is Forge Forge (18 items), the brand that produces the most clothing is Splash Mob Splash Mob (19 items) and the brand that produces the most shoes is Tentatek Tentatek (19 items).
  • In Splatoon, five brands do not produce all three types of gear: Firefin Firefin, Forge Forge, Skalop Skalop, SquidForce SquidForce, and the real-world tie-in brand KOG KOG. They all produce headgear and clothing but not shoes, with the exception of KOG, that only produces clothing.
  • In Splatoon 2, only two brands still have this distinction: Skalop Skalop and SquidForce SquidForce.
  • In Splatoon 2, this is not the case. Every piece of special promotional gear is produced by an existing brand that is not associated with special promotions, most commonly Forge Forge, which produces eight pieces of promotional gear in-game.
