Weapon Quote

"Each shot is kind of weak, but the high rate of fire makes up for it. This weapon's popularity is due to not only its helpful special but also to its snazzy futuristic design." (Splatoon) "Its attack power isn't all that, but you can use its feature to ink turf quickly as you pursue your opponents!" (Splatoon 2)
