Soda Slosher

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

The Soda Slosher is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. It is a Slosher with a different loadout and a different color scheme.

The Soda 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 is strong enough to splat opponents in only two shots.

The Soda Slosher deals constant seventy damage no matter how far away the ink travels, as opposed to rollers and shooters dealing less damage as the ink travels farther due to fall-off damage. However, here is still fall-off damage when targeting opponents below the player, dealing less than seventy damage, but this tends to not be a problem due to the high damage output of the Soda Slosher.

Sheldon's Introduction

"The Soda Slosher is based on a regular Slosher, but with some adjustments to the setup. The Main weapon and S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs spread ink far and wide, charging up the powerful S Weapon Special Inkzooka.png Inkzooka.

This set is bubbling with offensive and defensive power. Give it a go - you'll really taste the difference."

(NA/EU/OC)[a]

A Slosher set remixed by Sheldon. The Splat Bombs support the usual strategy, and the addition of the Inkzooka provides the ranged power sorely lacking in older models.

A Slosher improved by Sheldon. Not only do the Splat Bombs support the usual strategy, the addition of the Inkzooka provides the ranged power sorely lacking in older models.
— In-Game Description(EU/OC)[c]
The Soda Slosher is based on a regular ol’ Slosher, but with some adjustments to the setup. Splat Bombs support the basic strategy, and the addition of the Inkzooka provides ranged power lacking in other models. And the bucket colors are pretty sweet too. Just sayin’.
