Get ready to run as Splatoon 2 adds the most explosive addition to its arsenal yet – the Torpedo. This new weapon will act as a homing missile of sorts, which will seek out and devastate your enemies.
Those unlucky enough to be on the receiving end might just be able to detonate any torpedo shots by shooting them mid-flight. You can check it out yourself by watching the video below.
The weapon comes to us as part of the 4.2.0 update, set to release November 6th or 7th depending on your region.
A new sub weapon called the Torpedo is coming to #Splatoon2! When thrown, it changes shape and homes in on a nearby enemy, exploding on impact and splatting ink everywhere! Fortunately, Torpedoes thrown by opponents can be shot down with your own attack. pic.twitter.com/NTtzBkNUWG — Nintendo Versus (@NintendoVS) November 1, 2018
In addition to all of that, there's also a new level currently being built in-game. A post on the official Splatoon 2 tumblr page lets us know that the result of the construction is set for a full reveal on November 7th.
If you still haven't got around to giving the game a try, then perhaps you should check out our review. On release, we praised the game for being 'an incredible shooter that improves on the original in almost every single way'.
It's great to see that Nintendo are still supporting Splatoon 2 with regular updates and content drops. I might have to hop back in myself on Wednesday to see what this "construction" malarkey is all about.
