The Slosher Deco is a main weapon in the Splatoon series. It is the Deco-branded version of the Slosher.

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

The Slosher Deco 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.

Appearance

The Slosher Deco is nearly identical in appearance to the Slosher. The only difference between the two is that the Slosher Deco has some stickers bearing the Deco logo on the supports. In Splatoon 3, the supports are recolored, fading from black-to-blue, then to the user's ink color.
