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 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, there is still fall-off damage when targeting opponents below the player, dealing less than maximum damage.
The Slosher was made available with the 2.0.0 update on 6 August 2015 at 02:00 UTC. It comes in a set with the Burst Bomb and Inkstrike. The Slosher deals constant 70 damage no matter how far away the ink travels, or what part the opponent is hit by.
In Splatoon 2, the Slosher returns with a new design that is primarily orange instead of pink. It is described as having redesigned handle and suspension. It comes in a set with Suction Bomb and Tenta Missiles. As of 4.0.0, the weapon no longer does a consistent 70 damage, but will deal a max of 50 damage if they're hit from above by the trail of ink between the primary glob and the player.
