Splatoon 2 players getting a Free DLC weapon tonight
For Splatoon 2, Nintendo is continuing on its approach of offering free DLC weapons every week. This week, Splatoon 2 players can grab a classic weapon from the first Splatoon game.
Starting tonight, Splatoon players can use their in-game currency to purchase the classic weapon Squiffer from the first game. In Splatoon 2, Squiffer is available from Ammo Knights. Squiffer is going to be a unique chargers weapon (Sniper rifles in Splatoon universe) as it has a comparatively short range of attack than other chargers, but provides a significantly high power attack and quick rate of fire.
Squiffer will work similar to the first game, complementing the players with a Point Sensor sub-weapon. This weapon when throw at an enemy player, tracks their movement and location for a short period of time. Special attack for this weapon in Splatoon 2 is Ink Armor.
