The Ultra Stamp is a special weapon in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. It is an oversized stamp hammer that can be used to repeatedly stamp the floor in a large radius, or be thrown to instantly end the special.

Appearance

The Ultra Stamp appears to be an oversized squeaky toy hammer with an ink tank formed from a white-capped plastic jug. Its handle is neon yellow, with the rim between the tank and mallet face on blue. The mallet face and ink tank change color with the user's ink. Debossed on the front of the mallet face is a pattern cropped from the outline of the SquidForce logo - specifically the variant with eyes which is used as the Regular Battle logo. This portion of the weapon acts as the face of the 'stamp', leaving an ink pattern on the floor when used. A white, glossy band around the handle has the Nouveau logo, while the ink tank has the Octopus Oil logo and the Nouveau logo debossed.

A single swing of the Ultra Stamp with leaves behind a pattern of ink identical to the logo on its front, as it is the pattern 'stamped' onto the ground. Continuous swings of the stamp by holding causes the stamped patterns left behind to somewhat blend together, though still leaving gaps in the pattern. When thrown with , a medium-sized circle of ink is left with a very fine splatter on the edges, and when swung in the air, a short line of ink is left on the ground beneath it. The line of ink left on the ground changes length based on when in the jump the swing is performed, and the direction the player is looking.

The Ultra Stamp was announced on 29 October 2018. It was released on 7 November 2018 as part of Version 4.2.0. Preliminary versions of the weapon were found by data miners starting with Version 4.0.0, under the code name "SuperStamp".

When activated, the player holds a gigantic plastic mallet in front of them, which continuously stamps ink on the floor while running and provides almost total cover from the front while leaving the back exposed. Take note that in the few frames that the stamp is swinging in the air, the player is still vulnerable from the front and can be splatted. Pressing swings the mallet and strikes it on the floor, and holding it down lets the player move forward quickly while splatting enemies in the way. Turning is fairly slow in this state. In the air, players can press the attack button to swing the mallet once at high speed, which is a smaller yet fairly efficient attack for splatting opponents directly, while pressing throws the mallet and ends the special prematurely. Players cannot ride a Ride rail while using an Ultra Stamp. If a player equips one while riding one, they fall off the rail.

Version history

Version Adjustments
4.3.0
  • When holding to attack repeatedly, the number of possible attacks has been increased by shortening the amount of time the stamp is cocked back, making it easier to block shots from directly in front of you.
  • Increased player movement and rotation speed when holding to attack repeatedly.
4.4.0
  • Enhanced move speed and turning speed when continuously stamping by holding down the button.
  • Minimum damage of the shockwave generated while continuously stamping by holding down the button: 30.0 → 40.0
  • While continuously stamping by holding down the button, the effect of enemy bullet and bomb destruction has been extended to also cover the area around the Ultra Stamp.
  • Reduced the time between swinging in the air and continuously stamping by 4/60 of a second.
5.0.0
  • When swinging the hammer to smash the ground, decreased the amount of time required to complete the first swing, and the time required to raise the hammer overhead for the second swing by roughly 2/60 of a second each.

Quotes
