Sloshing Machine

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Sloshing Machine is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Sloshing Machine launches a small mortar-like glob that is trailed by a vortex of ink. The glob leaves a path of ink while it travels, and bursts on contact with a surface or an enemy. Most notably, the vortex of ink allows the Sloshing Machine to do splash damage to enemies alongside the glob of ink if a direct hit is not landed.

The Sloshing Machine's splash damage allows it to fulfill roles similar to that of a blaster. More specifically, it is very similar to the Rapid Blaster concerning splash damage, direct damage, range, and speed. However, unlike blaster weapons which have a large exploding splash radius at their maximum reach, the Sloshing Machine will deal splash damage to anything alongside the glob as it travels. Additionally, the heavy arc of the projectile makes the weapon ideal for dealing with enemies behind cover, or enemies atop a platform, like the tower in Tower Control. These capabilities, however, come at the cost of lower attack-speed and turf coverage when compared to more traditional sloshers.

Sheldon's Introduction

An innovative new weapon that puts a "spin" on the classic Slosher model. The Sloshing Machine is sure to make your whites whiter than white and your turf inkier than inked! This weapon's attractions are the power of the main shot and the bonus ink flung out by the vortex. The S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs and S Weapon Special Bomb Rush Splat Bomb.png Bomb Rush combine to send the battlefield into a whirlpool of confusion!(NA/EU/OC)[a]

A compact washing machine that's been adapted for battle. The spinning action means that the area around the ink glob also gets a dose of ink.

The spiraling ink volleys provide solid attack power and leave a trail of ink in their wake. Smoke out dirty campers with the S2 Weapon Sub Autobomb.png Autobombs, and splat them off the map! If they survive that, you can hunt them down with the S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray! This set is perfect for splatting like a wild child and drowning the battlefield in a whirlwind of ink!
