Shell-Out Machine

The Shell-Out Machine is a capsule vending machine that dispenses various items in exchange for Cash. The dispensed items include tickets,[1] ability chunks,[1] Splashtag banners and titles,[2] locker room accessories,[2] and packs of Tableturf Battle cards.[3]

It can be found in the Battle Lobby in Splatoon 3. Normally it costs Cash 30,000 per use, but the first use per day costs Cash 5000. This first use resets at 00:00 UTC, regardless if the player has purchased something before 24 hours have passed. During the Sneak Peek period immediately before a Splatfest and for the duration of the following Splatfest, conch shells can additionally be used as an alternative manner of operating the machine, at one conch shell per use. Whilst this period is ongoing, the machine's design is slightly modified, with a neon conch shell sign on the machine and a folded sign, banner, and basket surrounding the machine. In this state, the SquidForce logo on the front of the capsules is replaced with an image of a conch shell.

Item chances

What players get out of the Shell-Out Machine relies on a component of luck. Each possible item is separated into six grades, with 0 being the rarest and 5 being the most common. Each grade has a different capsule color. There is a 47% chance of a grade 5 capsule, a 39% chance of a grade 4 capsule, a 13% chance of a grade 3 capsule, and a 1% chance of receiving any capsule with grades 0-2.

Etymology

Shell-out is a wordplay on "shelling out" which is to pay winnings to someone, and the conch shells that the machine accepts. It could also be a play on the word 'sellout', meaning 'to betray one's cause or associates especially for personal or monetary gain'.
