Please excuse its informal appearance while it is being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible!
It was revealed in the Chill Season 2022 trailer on 14 November 2022 and was released on 1 December 2022.
The Splattershot Nova has a more "futuristic" space-themed design than most other Splattershot weapons. It consists of an oversized plastic sports water bottle matching the user's ink color slotted into a black shooter frame, causing it to resemble a ray gun or Super Soaker.
The Splattershot Nova has Point Sensors and the Killer Wail 5.1. It seems to have great accuracy and long range, similar to the Splattershot Pro, however a faster fire rate and weaker damage. It was added along with Chill Season 2022 on 1 December 2022.
There are a lot of cool weapons in the Splattershot family, but the Splattershot Nova is a unique combo of range and firing rate in one awesome package! Granted, the weapon isn't going to win "Most Powerful" at the splat pageant, but it's great at suppoting your front-line allies from a distance. Plus, when paired with the Point Sensor, you can telegraph opponent moves to your team-and mop up any survivors with the Killer Wail 5.1 special. If you like to save the tastiest-looking bite of food for last, give this leadout a try! And stop doing that-it'll taste better at the start of the meal.
|“||SRL Ballistics here with a report on the Splattershot Nova, a new member of the Splattershot family with galactic range and an out-of-this-world look! Its power won't blow up a planet or anything, but you can fire all day long without affecting your aim. Splat speed ahead!||”|
