New Special Weapons in Splatoon 3 Fresh Season 2023 update

There are two new special weapons that will be added to Splatoon 3 with Fresh Season 2023: Kraken Royale and the Super Chump. Following in the shoes of the Kraken special from the first Splatoon, the Kraken Royale will transform the user into a squid or an octopus and allow them to swim on top of enemy ink unobstructed. As they move, the player will ink the ground below them.

The Kraken Royale has the ability to do a charge attack where you will move forward, inking the ground and splatting any enemy in your path, much like the Reefslider. The only downside to the Kraken Royale is that you’re vulnerable while transforming, so you will need to make sure you’re in a safe area before using it.

The Super Chump is a cannon that shoots large, balloon-like bombs that explode shortly after impact. The bombs will launch decoys that look like Super Jump landing spots, making the enemy believe you’re landing there and attracting them to that spot. This special weapon is great if you’re going up against campers.
