Splat Brella

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

The Splat Brella is a main weapon in Splatoon 2.

The weapon's shots resemble that of a shotgun; it has wide spread and short range, but not as wide and short-ranged as a roller. The player can press and hold Button1 ZR.png to open the umbrella, which will shield the player from any attacks in the direction they are facing. If the player continues to hold Button1 ZR.png for about two seconds, the umbrella will separate from the weapon and fly forward, becoming a fast-moving shield that the player can use to penetrate enemy defenses. Once separated, the player will not be able to use the umbrella's opening function for a while.

  • The Splat Brella is the only weapon with the "Splat" prefix not made by the "Splat" "Splat" brand. This is probably due to a mistranslation, since the Japanese suffix for it is different than the prefix for the Splat-branded weapons.
  • This weapon was playable in Octo Canyon before it was playable online. Even completing all stages with it would not unlock the Hero Brella until it was released online.
  • It has been suggested that this is Marina's preferred weapon.[by who?]
