Another couple of weapons have been added to Splatoon. Today, players can begin using the Inkbrush Nouveau in addition to the Range Blaster.

Here’s an overview of each:

Introducing the Inkbrush Nouveau, which brings the same abilities as the Inkbrush but has a different sub and special! You’ll be able to lay Ink Mines to catch your foes off guard, and then use the Bubbler when you’re ready to go in for your attack!

As the name suggests, the Range Blaster is a Blaster with shots that travel farther before exploding. It has a lower rate of fire, but who cares when you’re taking people out from clear across the battle field!? The Range Blaster comes complete with the Splash Wall and Inkstrike.

Check out some footage of today’s Splatoon weapons below.
