Weapons In Splatoon 3

One of the significant upgrades in Splatoon 3 is in weapons. Now, a wide variety is impressive, and eye-catching weapons are available that excite the players. These intriguing weapons are available in the Inklings and Octolings’ arsenal. One such weapon is Slosher. A single splash can bury your enemies and their turf under ink.

On the contrary, if you prefer weapons that provide more mobility, then the splat dualities is a medium-range weapon with an extraordinary fire rate. But the damage is a bit on the lower side. Weapons are improved and also increased in number. The latest version has much more to offer than the previous one’s

However, Players always opt for a weapon that matches their play style.

Unlock New Weapon In Splatoon 3

Ammo Knights is the place where you can unlock new weapons. This shop is located in the hub area of Splatsville and is owned by the amiable horseshoe crab Sheldon. You must use Sheldon Licenses instead of the game’s currency to get weapons. To get Sheldon Licenses, you must level up through battles. So, to get more Sheldon Licenses, you should participate in PvP matches more often.

Apart from that, these licenses can be obtained using the same weapon for an extended period. Because it increases the player’s Freshness with a particular weapon. Acquiring Freshness is a more rewarding approach. Licenses acquired from battles are limited, but players’ Freshness for a specific weapon can be increased five times.    

Bonus Shop

If you want a weapon beyond your Inkling or Octoling level, then the bonus shop can do just that for you. However, that comes at a cost. For example, suppose a weapon costs one Sheldon License if a required level is achieved. But if you are looking to get that weapon before that level, it might cost up to three Sheldon licenses. In our opinion, it’s a rip-off.
