Weapon type

The Blasters are not a Main Weapon type. They fall under the Shooter category. And because this page is protected, I can't fix this mistake. Friedinkling (talk) 20:17, 5 August 2015 (UTC)friedinkling[reply]

Seriously? Instead of acknowledging the error you're going to continue adding to it? The Blasters aren't a main weapon category. Unprotect this page or fix the error yourselves. Friedinkling (talk) 16:33, 7 August 2015 (UTC)friedinkling[reply]

honestly this page has so many errors but we cant do crap about it Mooone (talk) 16:44, 2 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Add the Octoshot Replica. --Meester Tweester (talk) 23:33, 9 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]

The Blasters and Brushes are separate main weapon types that different from Shooters and Rollers now, since they are different hero weapons in Splatoon 2, they also count as different weapon types on Splatfests. So it is suggested to be fixed. Ika-Hypercolor3 (talk) 15:44, 15 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Cost

Should we add the cost or way of obtaining a weapon next to it? BlazingInferno (talk) 12:58, 15 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Already in the article. See the table under Weapon#List of Weapon Sets. Heddy (talk) 18:43, 15 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

The Luna Blaster.

Question: What do you think about the Luna Blaster? (Edit your thoughts in) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltysquid (talkcontribs)

Talk pages are for discussing the page's content in hopes of improving it, as per Inkipedia:Policy/Talk pages. Luke (talk) 15:40, 23 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
there should probably be a section at the end of the blaster section that says something like: A new variant of the luna blaster was shown in the chill season trailer but is temporarily off the list as it's name is unknow Bulbasaur24 (talk) 14:58, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I agree w/that statement the octoling girl 13:14, 18 January 2023 (UTC)

Table Issues

The Bloblobber, Explosher, Ballpoint Splatling, and Nautilus 47 all have issues on the table where there's a blank slot for a second weapon variation that doesn't exist, which honestly looks pretty ugly. Oddly enough, the Grizzco weapons don't share this issue. I'd fix them myself, but I'm not sure how to edit the weapon tables themselves. Can someone help me out? Alicia Jewel (talk) 16:38, 13 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I believe those empty cells were there because of the possibility that a variant will exist in the future. I fixed the issues by hiding those empty cells. Heddy (talk) 21:43, 13 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Misinformation

The Squiffer doesn't have the shortest range in its class. 5p1k3 (talk) 13:09, 1 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Um... yes it does. I tested all the chargers with my back against the same wall each time, and the Squiffer has the shortest range. Even the Bamboozler 14 Mk I has a longer range! - AlreadySplatted (talk) 01:13, 5 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Omg that's good to know the octoling girl 13:21, 18 January 2023 (UTC)

Table Issues

For the non-Kensa weapons released in patch 4.3.0, these is no green checkmark under the proper game column. I would fix but cannot edit the table! Sharkie (talk) 06:50, 6 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for noticing and telling about it, fixed it. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 09:36, 6 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Huge, Overdone Spreadsheet of Mine

I decided to take the weapons and all their stats together, and make one huge table. I also including some charts, as well as some other tables at the side just for the heck of it.

It's just something for me to use up some time, and is likely not entirely useful, instead being rather redundant. It's just that I decided to share it now.

Splatfest Weapon Names

The splatfests for S2 are over, but we all remember the synergy bonuses, right? If everyone on a team had the same main, sub, or special weapon, it would show it in the "team name," but the category was not always the actual name of the weapon! Should we put the "Splatfest Synergy Name" category somewhere? PiePanda999 (talk) 01:05, 9 October 2019 (UTC)PiePanda999[reply]


What gear to use with each weapon class

I had the idea to add some recommended gear for each weapon class. Is this a good idea or not? DuckSaxDog1 (talk) 17:21, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

That is mostly a matter of opinion, so I don't think it belongs. Heddy (talk) 17:50, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Grim Range Blaster

I was looking at my weapons menu in splatoon2 (sorted to main weapon type) and noticed that the Grim Range Blaster was located with the blasters and not next to the range blaster, can someone double-check this and if it is real should we change its location on these tables? Agent9.75 (talk) 15:16, 5 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Splat bombs in Splatoon 3

Can someone add a check mark to the list of games with Splat bombs under Splatoon 3, since we've confirmed they're in the upcoming game? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 16:35, 22 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Weapons in Splatoon 3

Should we add checkmarks for weapons confirmed to be in Splatoon 3? Such as the .96 gal and the Blaster/Range Blaster? Timewip2020 (talk) 16:30, 4 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

yeah, I agree. We also need to add a section for the unnamed bow on this page, please! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 21:50, 4 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I also agree here :)YOLO2020 (talk) 16:08, 10 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Weapon table, game column checklist

I noticed that the checklists have X added to them now, which seems unnecessary, because checklists only need checks. And the way new weapons are added post-release would just make an explicit X incorrect, whereas an empty box would ensure that the page is not making explicit claims that are later wrong... it would just be a box in a checklist to check when it comes out. Similar to a personal checklist of gear that you check when you obtain the gear!

I think the table should be reverted to a checklist, where we check weapons as they come out, as it has always been. Using X's just seems wrong, unnecessary, and less clean. Heddy (talk) 03:34, 24 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I agree. And to add on to what Heddy was saying, what if, let's say, the krak-on splat roller isn't in splatoon 3 a little after launch, and we mark it down as an x, but then it gets announced in a later update to return. The x is then incorrect, and it's an unnecessary edit. The x's to me seem unnecessary, and I 100% agree that a checklist shouldn't need x's when it's a check list. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 11:17, 24 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

What about the games that are very unlikely to have a major update anytime soon? For example, Splatoon 2 doesn't seem like it's going to have a returning weapon from Splatoon because Nintendo is probably focusing their work on Splatoon 3 and other games instead of Splatoon 2. Should we add "X" marks for just Splatoon though? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dedf1sh07 (talkcontribs)
I just don't see why X's should be added in the first place. The same information is being communicated without adding a negative symbol. Heddy (talk) 15:20, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
IMO I think X's would be good for weapons that never made it into Splatoon 1 and 2. Splatoon 3 doesn't need X's until the game finishes content updates. The Timer symbol would honestly be better for this category and it should only be added for weapons that have 1 variant in-game (such as the Gold Dynamo showing up in the trailer but not the Vanilla one). If a weapon hasn't been revealed to be in the game and also doesn't have a variant in-game, you should leave it blank or add a question mark category. Timewip2020 (talk) 16:54, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I prefer simplicity and minimalism. We don't need timer symbols or X's or question marks, just a simple check for confirmed weapons is all that is needed to communicate the information to the reader. Heddy (talk) 23:34, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

New E liter Scope

Hey since there is a new E liter Scope in Splatoon 3 could someone make a page about it? Maybe name it Unnamed E liter Scope or something? Btw its special is most likely the Tenta Missiles check the splatoon 3 part of the tenta missiles page BadTimeGamer123 (talk) 09:09, 12 August 2021 (UTC) BadTimeGamer123[reply]

No bow class section?

Is there a reason there isn’t a bow weapon class section on the page? I understand it might be to early to add one, but I was curious why there wasn’t one.

Blasters and Brushes

In Splatoon 3, blasters and brushes are separate weapon classes, rather than being grouped with shooters and rollers respectively. Can someone who is more knowledgeable in Wikipedia lists move blasters and brushes from the shooters and rollers lists into their own lists? Thanks in advance. Colorized (talk) 07:01, 17 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

This topic has been discussed multiple times and we came to the conclusion to wait until Splatoon 3's launch. In-game the Blasters are sortet between Shooters and Burst-Fire weapons which is reflectet on the Weapon Page. If Splatoon 3 sorts Blasters and Brushes seperately from Shooters and Rollers this Page will be updated accordingly to match the in-game sorting.   Perfectionist   (talk) 07:30, 17 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
In the World Premiere, blasters and brushes appear as options when searching for weapons in the gear select screen. Is that enough to change it? Besnhasthefun (talk) 22:36, 24 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think this is enough to change it as well. Are the changes approved? Colorized (talk) 23:55, 24 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
While the ingame sorting is not the final deciding factor, it has encouraged improving and creating drafts for a standalone page for blasters and brushes. From these pages the tables will later be taken. The final deciding factor will be the sorting of weapons in Ammo Knights, as the sorting there is the reason for the current sorting of weapons on the page, but there is a lot in favor for the separate sections on the page so you might soon see seperate sections.   Perfectionist   (talk) 22:37, 30 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dual squelcher

Weapons that we have absolutely confirmed are not in a game have a light blue box in that game’s column, and it says that dual squelcher is not going to be in splatoon 3. Has this absolutely 100% for sure explicitly confirmed this with an official statement? If not we should not mark it as “not going to be in splatoon 3” as we are not entirely sure that it is not going to be in splatoon 3. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 19:04, 10 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Characteristics of weapons

Should we add a column that has a basic summary of the weapon's characteristics? For example the hydra splatling would be something like “has the longest range, longest charge time, and lowest mobility of all splatlings.” I think this would make it quicker to learn about the weapons without having to go back and forth between hundreds of pages.

Undercover Sorella Brella

The Undercover Sorella does not appear in Splatoon 3. WUTAdam (talk) 21:57, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Has it been confirmed Gold Dynamo Rollers’s are added in Splatoon 3

I can’t find them in game, so I can’t trust that in the wiki. Need a confirmation. Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 00:28, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It's in promotional images. Look at the image above the roller section. Hope I could help. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 00:44, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The Gold variant of the Dynamo *currently* isn't in the game yet, barring its existence in promo renders and art (But it has a cameo in Ammo Knights tho). So it is guaranteed gonna be added Post-Release. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 02:10, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Not guaranteed, but very likely. EminenceTalk 02:16, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well are you sure that isn’t the standard dynamo roller for splatoon 3? Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 14:59, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Vanilla (Standard, Regular) Dynamo is silver colored, gold is gold. Xan S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 15:12, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm but it could have been a situation like “the gold color on the dynamo is more iconic, it should be the vanilla dynamo and the silver one should be a variant” but then they changed their mind after promos and shops were made, also it hasn’t been officially actually explicitly confirmed that it will return so we should maintain 100% skepticism Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 17:47, 28 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well in cooler heads in splatoon 1 there is an unused piece of gear hiding behind the UI display, so it could be a case of included in the shops but never used in-game. Of course it is unlikely that it would not be in the game but we should be very skeptical of anything that is not official. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 17:54, 28 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's in promotional images-? Xan S2 Brand Toni Kensa.png 18:19, 28 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Information about snipewriter we do not know

In the bamboozler section it says that it lacks the ability to store a charge, an ability present in all non-scoped charges. Unless I'm very much mistaken, we don't actually know if this is correct. We don't know if the snipewriter 5H can store a charge. Hurray (talk) 17:01, 21 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oops, I didn't notice that it said Splatoon 2! Hurray (talk) 17:05, 21 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The Specials Section

For the love of god who decided the list of specials should be in ALPHABETICAL ORDER??? I cant think of a single good reason it should've changed from the order they're listed in the game. I cant even fix it myself since its a protected page :'(

Adalent (talk) 23:07, 1 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

The page is protected to autoconfirmed only, so once you have a few edits and days under your belt then you'll be able to change that! You raise a good point, the table should be sortable. Personally, I detest the way Nintendo have ordered it in-game and alphabetical order is much more navigable. I will edit it to be sortable both ways. Slate Talk Contribs 00:06, 2 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Done. Slate Talk Contribs 02:01, 2 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
This page actually pulls its content from a non-locked page that you can edit: special weapon. Many specials aren't in all 3 games, so there is probably no single correct "in game order", though maybe internal IDs or sorting by game could clear that up. Alphabetical order is more accessible in general, so alphabetical sorting should definitely be an option. Heddy (talk) 00:13, 2 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Ouch. Yes, I agree with you, whoever did that was in the wrong. I think that the order should be the order that they were introduced, from Splatoon to Splatoon 3. the octoling girl 13:20, 18 January 2023 (UTC)

It's objective. You don't have to like it, and now that the table HAS BEEN sortable, there is no need to voice a negative comment. Xan S2 Brand Toni Kensa.png S3 Splatfest Icon Spicy.png 14:56, 18 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
