    "Out of all the Splatoon 2 weapons, this is by far the easiest and most OP one in the game. It's easy to pick up and play with if you're a beginner. But, it does take a while to get good at playing it. You really have to know the capabilities of your attacks for it to become truly effective. But overall, this weapon is a beast! 🔥"

    "THIS WEAPON IS A MONSTER. Among Splatoon 2 hero weapons, it great for players who want to have an aggressive playstyle because its specialty is its offensive kit. It can push heavily with splat bombs and is just great as a pushing tool."

    "The '85 is a great weapon. Since they added Ink Armor to it, arguably the best support special in the game, it's become a pretty potent team support tool. It also allows their ink tanks to refill instantly which is a pretty good feature."

    "This weapon requires more aim but you're assured of having higher accuracy and a longer range. It's become a pretty balanced weapon overall after the nerf. Would definitely recommend players to give it a try. You might even main it. 👍"

    "Just a tip for players looking to try this weapon, the key word is PATIENCE. Using the heaving slatling takes patience and that you're most likely to prioritize standing on tower or inking the zone rather than getting kills or pushing. leave it to your teammates to establish map control and become a defensive machine. You're cool like dat. 😎"

    "Players who use charges pretty much dictate the flow of the game and their most likely effective death machines who can dominate the match at any given point in the game. That's why I like this weapon. 😂"

    "SLAYER WEAPON. Pretty much all you need to know about it. It has medium-short range so get used to pushing and its accuracy. Great when you pair it with curling bombs as they offer pretty decent harass. "
