Sheldon's Introduction

The Z+F Splat Charger is a special model of the Splat Charger from trendy gear brand Z+F! Now, that cool brand doesn't make the weapon any more powerful, or anything, but you will get an entirely new loadout to play around with! Take, for example, the Splash Wall. It's a great accessory for a charging weapon because it allows you to take cover while the main weapon, well, charges up! And it comes with the fearsome Triple Inkstrike special! Whether you use it to probe for hiding enemies or holding down the fort, it's a beast. If you want to be THAT charger user, give this set a try.

Now back to Z+F. Fittingly, this report is a Fashion Desk and Ballistics collab. So... check out the Z+F Splat Charger! With the Splash Wall sub, it can hold its own against weapons with longer range. And the Triple Inkstrike strikes triple fear into the hearts of your enemies!
