Upcoming Splatoon Update Includes New Weapons And More

Nintendo will be rolling out a update to their third-person shooter, Splatoon next week. The upcoming update will feature a pack of new weapons, balance patch-ups, and more.

According to the developer, nine new weapon combos, known as Sheldon’s Picks 2.0, will be included over the course of the update. Currently, only three of the nine new weapons have been confirmed: the flame-trimmed Grim Range Blaster, grass-camouflaged Bento Splatterscope, and rust red N-ZAP ’83. Based on the names of the already announced weapons, it appears they are following a similar pattern from the previous batch of Sheldon’s Picks, which  combined old weapons, offered fresh color schemes, w different abilities,  and stats.

The update will also address issues with gameplay, old weapons as well as map glitches. The update will modify several gameplay elements, for example, all the brush weapons will receive a massive boost to ink coverage when standing with the brush, swinging the brush, while the ability to perform attacks while stealth Super Jumping will be removed from the game. While several exploitable glitches in the Camp Triggerfish and Arowana Mall maps will also be fixed. If you’re curious to know everything included in update udpate head on over to the Nintendo UK site.

Splatoon‘s servers will be offline for maintenance while the update rolls out, starting at 5:50 p.m. PT/2:50 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 7th and will end at 7:00 p.m. PT/4:00 p.m. ET.
