    Just a fun thread, if you were able to make a 3rd (or even 4th) alternate kit for a weapon, what would the main/sub/special combo be?

    List the main, sub, and special weapon. New name optional. Then give a brief description of why.

    There is only 1 limit, the new kit CANNOT have a sub or special that is present on its other kits, it must be completely unique.

    Here's a bunch of ones I threw together. It's literally just the first weapon in each category.

    Polished Sploosh-o-matic
    (Has a shiny silver metal coating)
    -Burst Bomb
    -Booyah Bomb
    The short ranged Sploosh paired with a sub that allow it to put out some long ranged pressure. Something that both other Sploosh kits lack. The Booyah Bomb adds to the ability to deal with ranged targets but also gives the weapon a sort of defense in close combat.

    Aluminum Carbon Roller
    (Has a monochrome color scheme)
    -Fizzy Bomb
    -Inkjet
    Carbon Roller with the Fizzy Bomb which is good at spreading and getting some loose damage on targets. Additionally the trail helps approach and take out the damaged foes. The weapon is also paired with the aggressive special of Inkjet, giving the weapon a more directly offensive special as opposed to its other kits.

    Super Squiffer
    (Has a green/yellow color scheme)
    -Beakon
    -Ultra Stamp
    Being in the middle of being a defensive and aggressive player, it is designed to place beakons to help allies return to the advance. Ultra Stamp to give the weapon a strange sort of melee option.

    Waste Slosher
    (Uses more earthy, dark greens and browns)
    -Toxic Mist
    -Splat-Bomb Launcher
    The first weapon in the Slosher family to have Toxic Mist, halting enemies and making them prime targets. Splat-Bomb Launcher as well.

    Retro Mini Splatling
    (Has the same color scheme as the Splatoon 1 Splat weapons)
    -Suction Bomb
    -Burst-Bomb Launcher
    A throw back to a sub and special that previous Mini Splatling had. The Sub from the original and the Burst Bomb Rush from the Refurbished.

    Electric Dapple Dualies
    (White color scheme with lightning bolt stickers)
    -Torpedo
    -Ink Armor
    Torpedo to act as a distraction and Ink Armor as a support tool.

    Spy Splat Brella
    -Point Sensor
    -Sting Ray
    A Splat Brella that also works for support. Due to the weapon's good painting, it may build up Sting Ray's fast.

    Crystal Dapple Dualies: Clear Daple Dualies with a light blue Nouveau sticker and Nozzle. Burst Bomb+kInk jet/Curling bomb+Baller
    Seeing as how the Dapplies are currently outclassed as a slayer because of the kits, and support because of the main weapon, I figured that giving them an ultra aggro kit would be a fresh take compared to the other kits.

    Industrial Glooga Dualies: Black Glooga with orange arrow stickers. Sprinkler+Splat bomb launcher
    Basically aimed to alleviate the awful inking the Glooga has

    Gardener H-3: Green and yellow. Sprinkler+Inkstorm
    Basically just a company weapon as all components of this kit are produced by the same in game weapon company.

    Beach brella: A white Splat Brella that has stripes to match the user's ink color. Toxic mist+Ink jet
    Basically a more agressive Splat Brella with an area denial sub and aggressive special.

    (Custom?) Explosher: u probably no wut it'll look like
    Beakons+Inkjet/Stingray
    Beakons for team support, and Inkjet cuz Sloshers no have and Stingray for Backliner synergy.

    Burst Explosher silver chrome with green decals

    Sub: Burst bomb/ ink mine
    Special: Inkstorm

    The explosher has the ability to tac on tons of damage due to it's ability to deal 90 dmg so having burst bomb or inkmine would allow it to have a close range follow up to damage while still being able to support
    Inkstorm again like the range blaster will deal trickle dmg to follow your attacks as well as keep good coverage and support as a backliner

    Campy tenta brella tan center with black edges
    Sub: torpedo
    Special: booyah bomb

    The tenta brella has never had a way to deal with chargers and long range blaster so having torpedo gives it the ability to force the enemy to take their attention off you
    Booyah bomb again allows it to keep it area denial and allow it to increase it's coverage potential

    Dark squiffer dark red and organge design
    Sub: splat bomb
    Special: super stamp
    Basically a splatoon 1 revamp of the fresh squiffer with a better sub and the S2 version of the kraken

    Sunny Brella (Looks like Hero but is primarily yellow and changes color depending on your ink)
    Sub: Ink Mines
    Special: Inkjet
    You may ask "why mines? they suck". Well Splat Brella does 90 direct damage and mines do 35-45 damage. Not only that but Splat can limit approaches since they can place a mine + stay in shield while you try to kill them and shoot when you're open. And before you say "Undercover has mines" they don't work as well since the shield and weapon itself is much weaker.

    Root Beer Squeezer (A dark brown and cream colored Squeezer with a sticker)
    Sub: Toxic Mist
    Special: Ink Armor
    A Squeezer, but with more of a supportive role.

    I've always wanted a Heavy or Hydra Splatling with Squid Beakons. Using them to move between positions and supporting the front liners.

    Main: Heavy/Hydra
    Sub: Beakons
    Special: Anything that works well with ranged weapons: Inkstorm (preferred), Booyah Bomb, even a Bomb Rush.

    N-ZAP '90
    (based on the SNES's color scheme, so grey and purple)
    -Ink Mine
    -Baller
    We don't really have Ink Mine on average ranged all around weapons, except like the Glooga. The N-ZAP being a highly mobile weapon, it would be able to place Mines in mid to give information on advancing targets. Baller can potentially be a follow up move once you've locked a target down.

    False Jet Squelcher
    (Uses the red color scheme of the Dual/Dualie Squelcher)
    -Splash Wall
    -Booyah Bomb
    Kind of a throw back to the original Jet Squelcher from Splatoon 1. With Splash Wall as its sub just like the first game and Booyah Bomb which acts very similar to how Ink Strike used to.

    Firehouse H-3 Nozzlenose
    (And H-3 with a red and yellow firefighter color scheme, red frame, yellow hose)
    -Curling Bomb
    -Ink Storm
    An H-3 designed around having a degree of mobility, the Curling Bomb will allow you to to places faster. Ink Storm just there, might weaken opponents for 2 shot set-ups or pressure them into more optimal positions.

    Feather Flingza Roller
    (A Flingza with a large feather attached to its base grip)
    -Fizzy Bomb
    -Sting Ray
    A String Ray weapon, with the Fizzy Bomb there to do chip damage to support the Flingza ranged swings.

    Worn Inkbrush
    (Greyed out base, as if the ink chipped off)
    -Burst Bomb
    -Ink Armor
    An Inkbrush designed to splat, with Burst Bombs to deal damage quickly and prep enemies to be taken out. Ink Armor in tow to give it a heads up on an engagement.

    Immortal Hydra Splatling
    (Purple, with a Hydra sticker)
    -Sprinkler
    -Inkjet
    A long ranged weapon which can spread loads of ink from afar. Mix that with the Sprinkler, it will generate specials often. Use the Inkjet to push then return back to your perch.

    Industrial Glooga Dualies
    (Sports and orange palette)
    -Autobomb
    -Tenta Missiles
    Give it an at least somewhat offensive sub, as opposed to the support Ink Mines and defensive Splash Wall. Tag on Tenta Missiles since the weapon is typically valuable at range.

    Sanitarium Squiffer: A Dark orange Squiffer with the Octoshower logo. Torpedo+Inkjet
    An aggressive Set meant to pressipr the opposing team greatly with the ability to kill opponents with uncharged shots should the Torpedo hit.

    Carbon Dioxide {CO2} Roller: A Purple Carbon Roller with neon green stickers. Fizzy bomb+Inkjet
    Fizzy bomb allows you some mobility and can help with confirming kills while Inkjet is well... Inkjet soo...

    Neon Tetra Dualies: Red and light blue Tetra Dualies. Splat bomb+Ultra Stamp.
    Just your average set of a lethal bomb+Special.

    Retro Splatling: A maroon Mini Splatling with blue and yellow accents. Toxic mist+Ink armor
    A retake on the glory days of the Zimi in Splat1

    Primo Dualie squelchers: Navy Dualie squelchers with a white and red sticker. Torpedo+Booyah bomb
    Booyah bomb is a decent midliner special and Torpedo can be used as a distraction for the opponent so u can get away.

    These are awesome! I love the names too. I'd definitely pick up that Sploosh-O-Matic.
    This would be perfect. The Custom Dual Squelcher was my main back in Splatoon 1.

    Looks like I'll sort of get my wish with the new Ballpoint when it drops next week. Just wish I was better with this one.

    In keeping with Sheldon’s Picks from the last game:

    Eggplant Inkbrush - Eggplant-purple plastic and green bristles.
    Torpedo, Splat Bomb Launcher
    Specialty: Chaos
    Use Torpedo to distract opponents and splat them, and use it and the Inkbrush to gain special quickly. Unleash the Splat Bomb Launcher to sow even more confusion onto the field.

    Smith Flingza - Green with lighter spots instead of red, like a granny smith.
    Burst Bomb, Splashdown
    Specialty: Self-defense
    Use Burst Bombs to finish off opponents that your swing doesn’t quite kill or to escape bad situations, and drop your Splashdown when you’re caught unawares. Just be careful to stay well-stocked with ink afterwards, because without your Sub and Special you’re a sitting duck.

    Stream Squeezer - Light blue tape instead of red, with a mountain depicted on the bottle as if it’s mineral water.
    Fizzy Bomb, Ink Storm
    Specialty: Pressure
    Get chip damage with Fizzy Bombs to make killing distant enemies easier and support your team, or to relocate through enemy ink. Throw an Ink Storm to take back enemy turf and push the objective.

    Just add a couple ideas and it’s an “I totally meant to do that” post.

    Here's some that I think would be fun to play with

    Fortified Tenta Brella:
    (Tenta Brella Shield appears with a war camo pattern)
    Sub: Suction Bomb
    Special: Baller
    Description: "Become a Defensive behemoth with this weapon setup, constantly zoning out your opponents with the suction bomb, and tanking hits with ease with the Tenta Brella's Shield and Baller Special"
    Points to special: 190p

    Apex Range Blaster:
    (Range Blaster appears with blue flames and a black ink tank)
    Sub: Burst Bomb
    Special: Suction Bomb Launcher
    Description: "It's lonely at the top, so you're going to need some tools. Burst Bombs help you decimate the competition and the suction bomb launcher extends your domain."
    Points to Special: 200p

    Goofy Goo-Tuber:
    (The top of the baster resembles a peanut, and the pipe is now red with yellow polka dots)
    Sub: Fizzy Bomb
    Special: Bubble Blower
    Description: "Hey all you Goobers, it's time to say howdy to your favorite undersea peanut, GOOFY GOOBER"
    "Use the element of humor to fuddle your foes. The funny fizzy bombs help you move stored charges into the front lines and pair up with the bubble blower to protect yourself and your friends."
    Points to special: 170p

    Tactical Tetra Dualies:
    (Tetra Dualies now have a grey base, and the suction cups are colored a dark blue)
    Sub: Toxic Mist
    Special: Ink Armor
    Description: "A 1v1 specialist, the tactical tetra dualies come equipped with toxic mist so you can dash around the opponent for days, and ink armor gives you an extra edge over the opposition."
    Points to special: 190p

    KFC's $20 Tri-Slosher:
    (Literally a KFC brand Bucket)
    Sub: Autobomb
    Special: Autobomb Launcher
    Description: For the low price of 11800G, you get our stainless steel and aluminum chickens. All of our chickens are made with our secret patented tracking code, providing every little chicken the opportunity to follow your opponent.

    Enough to annoy a team of four, for the low price of just 11800G. *Sauce is dependent on ink color.

    Points to special: 199.9p

    Yes, I know the tenta brella and range blaster kits are not unique, but they play so differently, those two weapons wouldn't replace the originals.

    And we already have duplicates in the game already, with the Gold Aerospray and Slosher Deco. As well as the Hydra splatling and tetra dualies.

    There are more duplicates as well, but none of the weapons feel exactly the same.
