New Weapons Shown Off in Splatoon 2 Gameplay Footage

With the Nintendo Switch offered to players in London this past weekend, gameplay footage of a variety of titles is making its way to the internet. One such example is a video of Splatoon 2 gameplay footage, which provides fans of the online multiplayer shooter a look at some of the new weapons arriving to the game.

YouTuber Arekkz was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with Splatoon 2 and shared some footage of his two matches, each one offering a look at two different loadouts.

One involved the new Splat Dualies, a pair of dual-wielded SMG-style weapons that grant the user the ability to swiftly roll to one side and unload a concentrated stream of ink at a target. There was also demonstration of a new Ink Jetpack superweapon which launches the player in to the air to rain ink from above.

The second loadout involved the use of a mortar launcher superweapon, which parks the player in position to paint enemies with targets and then fire ink mortars at them.

Splatoon 2 is due to release in Summer of 2017. You can take a look at Arekkz’s video below.
