The Squeezer is a main weapon in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. It is a shooter-type weapon that can be used close or long-range. Pulling the trigger once shoots a single long-range, low-spread, high-power ink shot, and holding the button leads to successive short-range, high-spread, lower-powered shots. The long-range shots have a slightly longer range than the Splattershot Pro while the short-ranged shots have a range similar to the Splattershot.

Appearance

The Squeezer is a champagne bottle turned sideways. The bottle has a wooden handle and a metal trigger near the bottom, and most of the bottle is wrapped in red and white foil. Going around the middle of the bottle and over the cork are some metal attachments likely designed to keep the cork in place.

The Squeezer was announced as a part of Version 2.0.0 and released on 21 December 2017 at 02:00 UTC. It comes with Splash Wall and Sting Ray.

It appears in three Octo Expansion stations:

Data

  • The Squeezer is a middleweight weapon.
  • The matchmaking range is 200. Splatoon 2 matchmaking looks at a team's average matchmaking range value, and matches them against a team with a similar average.
  • When initially firing the weapon in humanoid form, the first shot takes 3 frames to come out.
  • When firing from squid or octopus form, the first shot takes 12 frames to come out.
  • When firing while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.72 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 20 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • The bullet hitbox for collisions with the environment has a radius of 2 units.

Burst fire mode (pressing ZR)

  • The ink consumption of 2.2% and ink tank capacity of 100% allows players to fire 45 shots before needing to refill the ink supply.
  • Holding for 10 frames in burst fire mode will cause the weapon to shift to continuous fire mode.
  • The interval between firing and when the player is able to become a squid or use a sub weapon is 4 frames.
  • When firing continuously, it shoots a bullet every 8 frames (7.5 shots per second).
  • Each shot has a base damage of 38.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 8 frames after being fired, it loses 1.1875 damage per frame until it reaches 19 damage at frame 24.
  • Shots cannot ever deviate from the inner reticle while on the ground.
  • Shots cannot ever deviate from the inner reticle while in the air. The outer reticle does not expand after jumping.
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 32 units per frame for 4 frames. Shots travel straight for 128 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 29.695 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 150 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.5 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 8 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 5 units of the player have a radius of 22 units, and a width of 12.5 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.4 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 15 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 11.8 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • If no ink droplets have occurred within 5 units of the player for 4 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet.

Continuous fire mode (holding ZR)

  • The ink consumption of 1.08% and ink tank capacity of 100% allows players to fire 92 shots before needing to refill the ink supply.
  • The interval between firing and when the player is able to become a squid or use a sub weapon is 3 frames.
  • When firing continuously, it shoots a bullet every 7 frames (8.57 shots per second).
  • Each shot has a base damage of 30.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 7 frames after being fired, it loses 0.9375 damage per frame until it reaches 15 damage at frame 23.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 8 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 13 degrees.
  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. After 25 frames, the outer reticle will start shrinking, and will finish shrinking after 70 frames.
  • The Squeezer starts off having a 1% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
    • This chance increases by 1% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 24 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 7 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 0.5% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 55 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (85 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 24 units per frame for 3 frames. Shots travel straight for 72 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 23.032 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 65 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 2 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 5 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 11 units of the player have a radius of 18 units, and a width of 12 units.
    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.4 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 16 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Squeezer main is a new type of shooter with multiple firing modes. Squeezing once will squirt out a single high-power ink shot! But you can also hold down to fire continuously, allowing you to ink the turf around you in a hurry! Press repeatedly when fighting to maximize your damage output, and hold when inking turf for maximum ink coverage! You can set up a Splash Wall to protect your team, and put far-off foes on notice with the Sting Ray special!

Sheldon's Introduction

The Squeezer is a great choice for players who want flexibility. Pull the trigger once, and you get a single high-powered shot. But holding down changes everything! Suddenly the rate of fire goes up, and the Squeezer transforms into an absolute turf-inking machine. Master both modes, and you'll barely even need the Splash Wall to shore up your defenses. But it's there for you anyway! And with a Trizooka to tame far-off enemies, this set is built for flashy fighters who are comfortable being the center of attention.

Trivia

  • This weapon is tied with the Clash Blaster, Dynamo Roller, and Custom Jet Squelcher for the cheapest Sting Ray in Splatoon 2, at 180p.
