Undercover Brella

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

The Undercover Brella is a main weapon in Splatoon 2.

The Undercover Brella is a brella that can be fired in rapid succession while its semi-transparent shield is open. The shield will open after the first shot fires if the user is holding down the trigger. The shield cannot be launched, and has the lowest durability in its class.

Each shot consumes 4% of the ink tank capacity, allowing users to fire 25 shots before needing to refill. Each shot contains several ink bullets that deal between 7 and 10 damage each, and up to 40 damage will be dealt per shot if most ink bullets hit the opponent. Three well-aimed shots are needed to splat opponents with the Undercover Brella. Opponents who touch the shield will take 15 damage, which is half the damage taken from touching the shield of a S2 Weapon Main Splat Brella.png Splat Brella or S2 Weapon Main Tenta Brella.png Tenta Brella.
