Splatoon 3 Details Drizzle Season Weapons, Maps, & New Content

A season full of new gear.

Nintendo have begun to reveal all of the new content, including weapons and maps, that will be available when Splatoon 3 Drizzle Season launches on September 1. Seasonal updates are typically the biggest for Splatoon 3, so Drizzle Season is one that fans will not want to miss.

Splatoon 3 players may try out the new Dread Wringer weapon when Drizzle Season launches. Unlike previous sloshers, this slosher fires two dollops of ink at once. Fans can also expect the return of Salmonid Smokeyard in Salmon Run, and new gear will be available at the Grizzco rewards counter. Moreover, the next Big Run event is set for September 1 at 5 PM PDT to September 3 at 5 p.m. PDT. Fans won’t have to wait much time at all to starting grinding Big Run once the new Season goes live. Further, players will be able to use the new Adjust Gear option while trying on select headgear and clothing items.

SRL Ballistics here. Did you miss us? Try adding a scope! HA! Classic Ballistics joke. Anyway, we've got new weapons to show off, including the Dread Wringer. This slosher has two muzzles and fires two dollops of ink at once. Hit your target with both, and you're in business!

Nintendo also revealed that new Splatoon 3 amiibo will be released on November 17. Three amiibo each bring one of the three members of Splatoon 3‘s idol group, Deep Cut, to life. Specifically, these amiibo depict Big Man, Shiver, and Frye. If you scan the amiibo on your Nintendo Switch, you’ll be able to get exclusive gear, take photos with the characters using the game’s photo mode, and more. While Nintendo hasn’t yet confirmed the price for each amiibo yet, it’s expected to be around $14.99.

The Octobrush Nouveau will make its debut as a heavier Inkbrush with a wider ink patch and splat. A Custom Goo Tuber will also be introduced with Fizzy Bombs and Ultra Stamps.

We've also got specs on the Custom Goo Tuber. It…has the same specs as the base Goo Tuber. But it comes in a new color! And with Fizzy Bombs and the Ultra Stamp, this set allows for daring close encounters—get all up in the other team's personal space, then start Ultra Stamping!

Fans may also look forward to the Inkline Tri-Stringer in Splatoon 3 Drizzle Season.

In Drizzle Season, players will have an option to set notifications whenever a friend uploads a replay. A new notification may also be activated to friends after you receive a “sweet item” from the Shell-Out Machine, and vice-versa. Moreover, players will be able to go into recon directly from the Stages menu.

One last finding today—you can now go on recon directly from the Stages menu! That includes Regular Battle and Anarchy Battle stages. And THAT includes not just current stages but upcoming stages! If you want to take your game to the next level, this gives you a tentacle up!
