Tri-Slosher

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Tri-Slosher is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

It is a slosher-type weapon that is separated into three sections and is similar in appearance as a Japanese brush washer bucket. As its appearance implies, it can throw in three different directions. It covers a straight line forward and two splotches to the side. The range is short compared to other sloshers.

The weapon consumes 6% of the ink tank capacity with each slosh, allowing players to slosh sixteen times before needing to refill. Each slosh does enough damage to splat opponents in two hits.

This bucket's three sections originally held cleaning products but now hold... the exact opposite. These segmented sections allow you to attack in three directions at once.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Tri-Slosher is a Slosher-type weapon that lobs ink in three directions in front of you at once! Since the ink is being split in three, it does reduce the attack power slightly, but if you follow up with a S2 Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bomb, you're good to go! All that's left is to push forward with the S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor! Recommended for those who really love to aggressively splat their opponents.
