Balance changes

We observed changes after distribution of Ver 5.3.0 and made adjustments to slightly lower the fighting power of certain weapons that could hold the battle line over a long period of time from further away compared to other weapons.

In addition, in order [to] increase the variety of weapons being selected, we made adjustments to several weapons to increase their competitiveness with the most popular weapons.

We will observe the changes after this update and make further adjustments to Splatoon 2 in the future.
