This piece of gear was available in the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere.


The Squidbeak Shield come with Sub Power Up as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. As a 2-star item, the Squidbeak Shield come with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, or by purchasing additional copies of them from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will also add another secondary ability slot to the Squidbeak Shield. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Squidbeak Shield by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since they are made by the Toni Kensa brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) and a lower chance of rolling Sub Power Up to fill their secondary ability slots.
