The Super Chump is a special weapon in Splatoon 3. It launches destructible decoys that Super Jump to a specified area and explode a short time after landing.

Appearance

When a player activates the Super Chump, they pull out a translucent cannon in their ink color. The decoys the cannon shoots are colored in the player's ink color, and they are decorated with colorful dots and a smiling face. When the decoys are about to explode, they expand and flash, much like Suction Bombs.

When activated, the user will begin aiming the cannon using a targeting oval. If the center of the oval is out-of-bounds, or the user is not on the ground, a "Can't Use!" warning will appear. Once a landing zone is set with , the cannon will launch 12 decoys in a random spread within the oval, displaying their landing sites as Super Jump markers with the names of random players on the user's team. After landing, the decoys explode after a short period of time, but they can be destroyed by enemy fire or crushed by moving terrain. The user cannot charge their special gauge again until the gauge has fully depleted.

Etymology

The English name is a combination of "Super Jump" and "chump" (phonetically similar to "Jump" and referencing the decoy aspect). It may also be a reference to chum, a type of bait often used to lure sharks, fitting in with the sea theme of the Splatoon series.

Translation notes

  1. From voor- ("fore-") and schutter ("marksman, shooter"). Possibly a pun on voor schut as in the phrases voor schut zetten ("to make someone look like a fool") and voor schut staan ("to look like a fool"), referring to the decoys and the players who fall for them, respectively.
