Splatoon 3: Sizzle Season 2023 Introducing New Weapons Tomorrow

Sizzle Season 2023 Nintendo

Nintendo is set to release a plethora of new content for Splatoon 3 in Sizzle Season 2023, arriving tomorrow, June 1. Two new main weapons will be introduced: the S-BLAST '92 and the Painbrush.

The S-BLAST '92 is a new blaster weapon in Splatoon 3 with two distinct firing modes. The first firing mode allows you to shoot smaller explosions that hit distant targets quickly. The second, on the other hand, can be initiated by jumping in the air and shooting at the target. Attacking enemies this way makes the S-BLAST '92 release bigger shots at the cost of a shorter range.

If you want to bring the pain closer to the enemy, the Painbrush is a good weapon for that. This melee weapon has a slow initial swing but it can fire powerful ink blasts far away to make up for it. Furthermore, the Painbrush will paint the path you're moving toward, which is quite helpful if you're playing a round of Turf War.

    • Sub weapon: Ink Mine
    • Special weapon: Inkjet

Some balancing adjustments have also been implemented for existing weapons. For instance, the Snipewriter 5H's ink consumption has been reduced by approximately 13%. On top of that, you gain roughly 13% increased movement speed while the weapon is charging, allowing you to run to a favorable position before unloading a powerful shot.
