Sheldon's Introduction

The Sloshing Machine Neo features a special sticker from the manufacturer. The Point Sensor sub weapon leads you straight to the enemy, letting you unleash twisty destruction! And if you feel the need for more range than the main shot can offer, that's where the Inkzooka comes in! (NA/EU/OC)[a]

The new and improved* Sloshing Machine! The sub weapon sniffs out the enemy's hiding place, so it's easier to hit players who are taking cover. *It has a sweet sticker on it now.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Sloshing Machine Neo features a special sticker from the manufacturer. Its stats are the same, but you can use the Point Sensor to reveal the location of opponents to your entire team! And for any opponents that manage to evade you, use the Splat-Bomb Launcher to send 'em back to their spawn point! Recommended to tactical players who want to support their team and splat their enemies!

According to our research, the Sloshing Machine Neo will be available this evening, just prior to Splatfest kickoff. Just like the Sloshing Machine, this weapon can be effective on enemies hiding in the terrain... and just like the Sloshing Machine, you shouldn't try to wash your clothes in it (this was hard research, indeed). Rounding out the kit is the Point Sensor to reveal the location of opponents to your team, and the Splat-Bomb Launcher to wreak a little havoc.
The Sloshing Machine Neo is a twist on the regular Sloshing Machine.

As with the regular version, the main weapon is a great tool for striking foes who are cowering behind cover, and the addition of a Point Sensor means that nobody can hide from you for long.

On top of that, the Splat Bomb Launcher(sic) special helps you rapidly secure turf for your team.

Trivia

  • In Splatoon, at 28,500 cash, the Sloshing Machine Neo is the most expensive slosher and the third most expensive weapon.

Etymology

Sloshing Machine Neo is a pun derived from the verb to slosh and Washing Machine, plus the suffix Neo, Ancient Greek for new. The suffix Neo is also used to differentiate it from the Sloshing Machine. This trait is shared among the other alternate sets of the Neo brand.

スクリュースロッシャーネオ Sukuryū Surosshā Neo is derived from Screw and the verb to slosh, plus the suffix Neo. Screw likely refers to spinning motion of this weapon's projectile. Like the English name, Neo is also used to differentiate it from Screw Slosher.
