In keeping with what has become a routine custom for Splatoon 2, it’s Friday and another new weapon has been revealed to arrive this weekend.

This time around the weapon is the Custom Splattershot Jr. and the very brilliant Squid Research Lab has the following to say about it:

Tonight, be on the lookout for an additional weapon at Ammo Knights! Sources inform us that the Custom Splattershot Jr. will be added to Sheldon’s inventory. This weapon offers the same functions as the Splattershot Jr. but comes with different supporting weapons.

Thanks to its Autobomb sub and Ink Storm special, it has an advantage in assisting teammates from aside or maintaining turf. We will research this further.

Only, just because it is out for North America today, the likes of Australia, Europe and Japan have to wait until tomorrow, so once again, here’s a list of times and dates you can expect to see the weapon go live:
