I've been playing Splatoon for years without writing about it. How dare I?


Recently I've been using the Jet Squelcher. The one with the angle shooter and the ink vac. I... really really love it. The one with toxic mist and rain, meh; it's a sloppy feeling kit where the sub and special weapons both have a very indirect-feeling interaction.

The angle shooter is very direct, but its impact on the game is much subtler... although this doesn't score me points on the team leaderboard, I think angle shooting my opponents, tagging them, makes them more afraid to advance, makes my team that much more aware of what is happening on the battlefield. I've loved the angle shooter since it was first revealed at release... it's only recently that I've found a place for it in my hands. Damn.

Also I'm enjoying being an 'anchor' generally. I think that's what I'm doing: not dying, covering flanks, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to use the ink vac. This is so fun
