The Red Battlecrab Shell was first revealed in the announcement trailer for Splatoon 3 on 17 February 2021. The "Battlecrab Shell" naming was revealed on 27 May 2022,[1][2] although datamining the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere (pre-loaded on 18 August 2022) reveals that the red variant of the vest is its own piece of gear.


The Red Battlecrab Shell comes with Sub Resistance Up as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. The Red Battlecrab Shell may appear as a 0-star item with one additional slot for secondary abilities, a 1-star item with two additional slots for secondary abilities, or a 2-star item with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, 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 also add another secondary ability slot to the Red Battlecrab Shell. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Red Battlecrab Shell by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since it is made by the Enperry brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Sub Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up to fill its secondary ability slots.
