It does by like a single pixel. There's practically no difference between their ranges

One is highly consistent and will always go where you place it the other has RNG. I don't care if they nerf it or not I have no problems dealing with the weapon.

By design shooters have damage drop off and sloshers don't. Which is why the regular slosher being half a line better range than most shooters is so amazing.

The second map for salmon is awful. I think I should just skip it when its this one. And there's a useless roller in the weapon lineup too. How do you make use of a roller in this mode or manage the 3rd wave on this massive mess of land with the terrible fan elevators.

If you're a roller your job is to mow down all the regular chuds all while inking a constant path back to the basket for your teammates.

Blasters are also quite good vs trislosher. If I see a blaster player has my number I just run the hell away because there's no way I get out two shots before they kill me, and any blasters that won't do me in faster usually have range and positional advantages on me. I have to catch them off guard.

Oh yeah the trislosher is obviously better suited for max range, it just doesn't get half a line better range than most shooters. It's literally a tiny pixel difference.

When you test out weapon ranges don't look at the floor, shoot the dummies at max range instead

I am very pleasantly surprised at the depth this game has. Before I ever played it (never touched splat 1), I made all sorts of lovely assumptions about it.

Ok what do you all mean by line with this range business? I was going by the lines on the test floor.

Either way the sloshers have very similar ranges that might only matter if you're firing from above.

This pre or post nerf? The problem with that drat piece of poo poo is no matter how fast you were trying to either shot them first or dodge out of the way the lag got you 99 times out of a 100. At best you could trade kills.

The "delayed wind up time" was only enough if you were looking straight at them as they popped out to jump & swing at you. It was just plain stupid. Trislosher has nothing on that disaster of a weapon.

I was talking post-nerf, assuming you mean the change that forced dynamo users to aim at what they were trying to splat. It didn't really change my game since I aimed my roller flicks anyway; but it definitely cut down on the easy/accidental triple and quad kills. That thing was just obscene.

I really like Salmon Run. Here's to hoping that Nintendo will keep expanding it. And that I won't get any more Chargers in it.

The other thing with the Tri-Slosher is that the side shots deal full damage. You don't even have to aim at your target all that well, which makes up for the shorter range.

There is damage dropoff for all the Sloshers, but that's only if you're above your target. Otherwise, you always deal base damage with them.

The Tri-Slosher is definitely not without weaknesses, but I wouldn't mind if it got a few hits. Maybe if the side shots didn't deal full damage.
