For the main weapon type, see Slosher (weapon class).
For other items commonly referred to as buckets, see bucket.

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 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.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Slosher is the most basic Slosher-type weapon, able to fling a large amount of ink directly ahead. It's also remarkably effective at splatting opponents who are up high or behind a wall! The Slosher lacks rapid-fire capabiliteis, so the S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs should help out there! And the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike special can deliver a powerful blow to unsuspecting opponents as well.(NA)[a]

A weapons-grade bucket that hurls ink straight ahead over an impressive range. By adjusting the angle, it can be used to hit opponents who are up high or even on the other side of a wall.
— In-Game Description
This might look like an ordinary bucket, but it’s actually a weapons-grade bucket! Hurl ink straight ahead over an impressive range, and adjust your angles to hit opponents above you or behind walls. The Slosher comes with S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs and the special is a hot pastrami on rye! Er, wait. Sorry. I mean S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike. Got a little excited about today’s lunch delivery.

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.[1] 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.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Slosher can be a brutal weapon in the right hands. It's basically a bucket of ink that you can toss straight at an opponent! Slosher-type weapons can do things other weapons only wish they could. It’s great for attacking elevated positions behind walls. It can’t fire rapidly, but if you combine it with the S2 Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bomb's explosion, you can defeat opponents without being seen! Reveal your opponents' locations with the S2 Weapon Special Tenta Missiles.png Tenta Missiles, and then fire away! It’s a great weapon for Slosher newbs!
