The vertical swing is an action in Splatoon 2.
Any player using a roller-type weapon can perform a vertical swing. It is done by pressing the jump button before pressing the attack button. Vertical swings are used to splat opponents at longer ranges, and to cover the ground with a long and narrow path of ink instead of the usual short and wide splash. Before Splatoon 2, roller-type weapons could not be used in this way.
