In this Challenge, the only main weapons that players are allowed to use are weapons that come with the Zipcaster special weapon. If a player tries to play the Challenge with a weapon that doesn't have the Zipcaster special weapon, they'll get the option to cancel or select an owned weapon that does; other weapons are grayed out. During the Challenge, the special gauge will fill quickly by itself in addition to filling by inking turf. When the Challenge is played, only primary abilities will be enabled, so secondary abilities will have no effect. The mode of this Challenge is Splat Zones. The stages playable during previous iterations of this challenge were Hagglefish Market and Manta Maria.
