Splat Dualies

The Splat Dualies are a main weapon in Splatoon 2. Dualies are a new weapon type added in Splatoon 2 and are featured prominently in promotional material for said game.

When fired, the Splat Dualies spray ink from both of the player's hands. Two reticles are displayed as a result, and each reticle acts independently, so an obstruction of one Dualie does not inhibit the shots of the other.

The Splat Dualies feature a unique roll mechanic. Pressing Button1 B.png (jump) while firing causes the player to quickly roll in the movement direction, leaving behind a small cone of ink. The player then enters a crouch for a short duration. While crouched, the player's reticles are merged and shots are concentrated on one point; however, walking is disabled. Rolls may be used up to two times consecutively before the player must stand again.

Sheldon's Introduction

The main is the Splat Dualies, a pair of dualie-type weapons born from the culture of Turf War! You carry one in each hand, which is pretty sweet, and their propulsive exhaust nozzles allow you to perform a high-speed dodge roll! You can't move for a brief period immediately after rolling, but the two sights overlap during that time, increasing your splatting power. The included S2 Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs have great damage output, and you can hit far-off opponents with the S2 Weapon Special Tenta Missiles.png Tenta Missiles! It's a really solid set!

Spray ink from both of your hands with this new weapon type. Press Button1 B.png while shooting with Button1 ZR.png to roll in the direction you're moving. You can roll twice in a row to cover more ground.




  • The number of shots required to splat an opponent after or with a 35 damage indirect from a Burst Bomb can be decreased from 3 shots to 2 when using enough Main Power Up to increase the main weapon's damage to at least 32.5.
