Splat Roller

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

The Splat Roller is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Splat Roller is a large paint roller. It covers turf while the player pushes it and can be used as a melee weapon. After pressing Button1 ZR.png, it flings ink at a short range. If the player continues to hold down Button1 ZR.png, the Splat Roller touches the ground and can leave a wide trail of ink identical to the player's movements for as long as the player holds Button1 ZR.png. Enemies making direct contact with the roller while it is being pushed are splatted instantly. At close range, well-aimed fling attacks will splat opponents with one hit. Each flick of the Splat Roller consumes 9% of the ink tank capacity, allowing players to fling eleven times before needing to refill the tank.

The Splat Roller represents the Roller class of weapons, useful for close combat and also for inking turf. Tap Button1 ZR.png to fling ink at foes, or hold it down to ink the ground as you run! Rollers began as unofficial weapons but became so popular that they're now an officially recognized style! The included S Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bombs and S Weapon Special Killer Wail.png Killer Wail are powerful too, so this is great set to learn the Roller ropes.(NA)[a]

The Splat Roller represents the Roller class of weapons, useful for close combat and also for painting the floor. Tap Button1 ZR.png to hurl ink at foes, or hold it down to paint the floor beneath you as you run!

The included S Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bombs and S Weapon Special Killer Wail.png Killer Wail are powerful too, so this is great set to learn the Roller ropes.(EU/OC)[b]

A weapon adopted from an ordinary paint roller. Aside from inking the ground, it can also be swung to hurl globs of ink at your opponents.
— In-Game Description
This weapon here is the Splat Roller. Its ability to ink the ground while on the move sometimes classifies it as a melee weapon, but you can also swing it to fling ink, making it effective at medium range too! It’s all about knowing when to roll and when to fling!

The Splat Roller returns for Splatoon 2 with a new visual design and a new vertical swing mechanic. When flicked while jumping, ink travels in a vertical line rather than a horizontal splash, and it travels much farther than a grounded flick. It comes with Curling Bombs and the Splashdown.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Splat Roller represents the roller class of weapons that excel at close combat and inking turf. Tap Button1 ZR.png to fling ink at foes, or hold it down to ink the ground as you run. Bounce a S2 Weapon Sub Curling Bomb.png Curling Bomb off a wall to cut off your opponent's route, get right up on them, aaaaaaand SPLAT! Paired with the S2 Weapon Special Splashdown.png Splashdown, I'm pretty sure you'll have no trouble splatting multiple opponents at once! If you want to experience the basics of the new generation of rollers, look no further.

The perfect weapon for getting up close and personal. Press Button1 ZR.png while on the ground to fling a wide volley of ink or press Button1 ZR.png while in midair to fling a narrower, concentrated volley of ink.
