As for the special of .52 Gal you get Killer Wail 5.1. It summons six speakers in a vertical hexagon to follow the player. When you use it, it will fire using two speakers at a time while launching a beam that is strong enough to pierce walls.

  • Ink speed: 45
  • Handling: 55

This weapon gives you the sub-weapon Curl Bomb. You use a Curl bomb by deploying it, it moves in a straight line like a Roomba leaving a trail of ink behind. After crashing into any wall, surface, or obstacle it will change its direction and move accordingly. Once it covers its maximum distance it will explode.

Big bubbler is a defensive type of special weapon that you get with Splat Roller. It creates a barrier starting from the player’s feet and all the teammates inside the barrier won’t take damage from the enemy attacks. This effect lasts until the enemy attacks break the barrier down.
