If you're trying to run away as a brush user why aren't you just using your brush? It's the ultimate getaway tool assuming you've got at least a smidgen of ink left in the tank.

You can still hit ink when running with the brush, which is the whole reason I have the ink resist equipped. Its especially common if you are making sharp turns, which is likely what you're gonna do when you run into 4 enemies and need to U-turn out of there.

Thermal and anything to conserve ink do seem like good ideas. I've been in a few confrontations where I'm empty and that sucks. Thanks.

Does thermal share information with the team?

I tried thermal this morning and I'm not really sure it's worth it. The gun's a 2 shot kill and since you can't splash the shots over cover/up walls like a bucket can there didn't seem to be many situations where it actually came in handy.

I only tried it out for about 10 matches so I could be wrong.

I rolled two Ink Saver Main subs on my rain boots, then figured I'd pop an Ink Saver Main drink to get the third slot.

It did not work.

I know the pains of not rolling the right 3rd sub-ability all too well.

I am doing better this evening. I've pretty much forsaken ambushing folks with my Carbon Roller and have concentrated on just inking uninked turf and enemy ink that's been abandoned. Gets me Ink Storm fairly quick this way as well. Sometimes I'll suicide bum-rush the enemy spawn in the last 30 seconds or so.

I can't hit anyone for poo poo with the damned thing still.

I went 3-2 tonight and was never last in points so I guess I'm doing something a little better. Anyway ~that's my story~

Do we have to bitch and moan every Splatfest, internet? If you can't handle a benign choice in a children's game, don't play.

Like seriously, can't wait to hear Team Thank You bitching in a month when Team Please wins.

(I'll allow Team Cat to be salty all these years later. That was family we were defending.)

This is clearly the easiest Salmon Run ever



Really, I've said almost every weapon has a place in Salmon Run. A lot of people moan about being handed stuff they aren't used to, but most weapons have a niche they excel at in Salmon Run so you have to play around that.

The goo tuber? Its just poo poo here. I can't judge chargers at all in player matches, but I've gotten a good hang of them in Salmon Run. The goo tuber's ability to store a charge for a long time is barely useful. You're pretty much never lacking for a target to shoot at, so you don't need to hold onto a charge for very long if at all. Meanwhile the extra charge time is a massive problem. It makes it far less powerful than a normal charger due to longer setup time. Its just a bad weapon here.
