Special Saver is an ability in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Each time a player gets splatted, their Special Gauge is reduced. Special Saver reduces the Special Gauge loss after death.

Splatoon

Zekko Zekko gear has a 5× chance of rolling this ability, while Skalop Skalop gear has a 1/2× chance.

The maximum amount a player can avoid losing due to this ability is 50% of the level of their Special Gauge at the time they are splatted (e.g. if a player has a full S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator charge of 200 points, the player can keep up to 100 points on top of what they would have kept ordinarily). Normally players lose 40%, 60%, or 75% (depending on the Special Depletion class of their weapon) of their Special Gauge upon getting splatted, but if they stack Special Saver they can lose as little as nothing.

Use

This ability is very helpful for times when players get splatted just before earning a special, or after earning it but before having a chance to use it.

Special Saver tends to be useful at weapons that have hard time covering turf like Blasters and some long range shooters, and specials that require a lot of Ink to fill charge like S Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken, S Weapon Special Inkzooka.png Inkzooka, and S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator.

Note that Special Saver preserves an additional percentage of the Special Gauge regardless of the Special Depletion level of the weapon. For instance, with maximum Special Saver (50% preserved) and a Medium Depletion weapon (60% lost), a player would lose a total of 10% of their Special Gauge. This means that there is no point in stacking more than 40% worth of Special Saver if a player is using a Light Depletion weapon.
