Nintendo of Japan has been doing an excellent job of highlighting some of the unique weapons that players will be able to equip their Inklings with once the game releases in May. We’ve already seen the big paint roller and the grenade-launcher mortar gun, but this short video gives us a look at the quick-shooting SMG of the Splatoon world. As with any SMG, this gun seems like it’ll be the most effective at mid-range, so you’ll have to get in somewhat close in order to get your opponent whittled down. It doesn’t have the stopping power of the hot blaster or the paint roller, but catch an inkling by surprise and you’ll probably take them out of that section of the map.
