Flinging Ink from a Slosher.

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

The Slosher is a bucket of ink that can be swung to splatter turf and enemies in a straight line. The trajectory of the ink can be adjusted to strike enemies behind walls or on above high surfaces. It's strong enough to splat opponents in only two shots.

The Slosher deals constant 70 damage no matter how far away the ink travels, as opposed to rollers and shooters dealing less damage as ink travel farther due to fall-off damage. However, here is still fall-off damage when targeting opponents below the player, dealing less than 70 damage, but this tends to not be a problem due to the high damage output of the Slosher.
