    As all weapons are supposed to be returning and from what we know about the new subs and specials,I was wondering if there's any specific weapon/kit combos you guys are hoping for? Personally I'm hoping for a H-3 Nozzlenose with burst bombs and tenta missiles or the sting ray. A sloshing machine with burst bombs would be awesome too. Pretty much I just love burst bombs.

    Inkbrush + burst bombs + ink-cloud special.

    Thank you, good night.

    Burst bombs would solve the issues of both inkbrush's tiny range AND horrible tall wall painting.
    ink cloud because more distraction for you to get in close with your brushido technique.

    Although you could argue that the Soda Slosher is a good Tower weapon, I would love to see this:

    Slosher + Suction Bomb + Tenta Missles

    I loved the Suction/Wail set on Splat Roller, but I feel as though the up close and personal CQC just didn't fit the kit well. With the spacing necessary for Sloshing Success, there wouldn't be any dire situations for Burst Bombs or a panic special, making a much more long range kit viable. Not only would it be able to shove people off Tower with Suction, if even a weak hit splashes anyone near the Tower, Slosher would have a beautiful follow up. If there's too many people on Tower to get close, just paint up (an easy thing to do with the Slosher) and fire off a quick Tenta Missle for easy pressure. Snipers in a hard to reach spot? Suction Bomb. Need to force your opponent closer to your Slosher? Suction Bomb. It would be a great thing to test out and use with the Slosher, since I am a sucker for Suction Bombs. The only thing that would still be a problem is Ink efficiency, but that's a problem with all Slosher kits soooooo…

    an bamboozler with splat bombs and splat down.
    somewhat random idea, but splat bombs on bamboozler would be interesting.
    Splat down can be a life saver or cause surprise splats in different ways.

    I just hope range blaster + burst bomb comes back. Because burst canceling is awesome. And whatever special it comes with wouldn't cramp the viability of the weapon because it doesn't really need an extremely good special.

    Let's be honest here, who uses the Grim for the Wail anyway? So for now, I hope the kit is the range blaster with burst bombs and sting ray.

    Squiffer + Curling Bomb + Ink Storm or Splashdown

    Giving a Squiffer some CC with the Curling Bombs and Ink Storm would allow the kit an aggressive edge compared to most other chargers, plus the Curling Bomb will allow it to over-extent for short periods of time, so you can more easily secure a splat.

    If not the Ink Storm than the Splashdown + Curling Bomb can act as an escape route, get some space between enemies and escape with a Curling Bomb, plus the kit than can give it a more Supportive/Aggressive playstyle.

    I suppose I can still do it based on what we know currently. The tried and true Slosher + Burst Bombs is definitely something I want to return, and for it's special perhaps the Ink rain. I'd also like a Splattershot Pro and Rapid Blaster Pro with burst bombs, but I suppose that might be infringing on the Custom Jet Squelcher. I'm thinking the Splashdown will mostly be used as a defensive tool, so I'd hope it's given to plenty of ranged weapons like the Heavy Splatling and Bamboozler. Then on the otherside, I'd hope the Stingray and Tentamissles are given to many short range weapons.

    I only played the original story mode and the recent test fire and fell in LOVE with the curling bombs. I would love to be able to use either the Roller or Slosher (I like those heavy hitters with less aim needed and in your face action) with curling bombs for good zoning and distraction with (here comes the noob in me) the special that you simple jump into the air and make a massive splash of your ink in a large radius.

    Hard to say for sure, not knowing what new specials I'll like... But I feel that I'd like any combination of:

    Inkbrush/Mini Splatling + Curling Bomb/Poison Mist + Jetpack/Ink Cloud

    Revising my proposed broken Dynamo roller build

    Dynamo Roller + Toxic mist + Ink storm

    not only do you have a potential for double mist + dynamo flick zoning
    But you add on the faster to use Ink-storm special that will instantly refill your ink...

    Suddenly you have quad mist + dynamo flick(s?) + ink-storm zoning
    A quarter of the map(or more) shut down by one player? Seems balanced 2 me ;)

    Uhhhhhh Splatoon 2 devs, don't listen to Green Waffles please. :eek:

    So I got my wish from the get go to have a Splattershot with a splatbomb. Though its special concerns me, being the jetpack. I would have preferred the tentamissiles or some other long range weapon, since I an concerned chargers will be shooting me out of the sky easily.

    A Splash-o-matic with splatbombs would be really great to have. Here's hoping it reveals itself in this game. Inkstorm would be pretty great with this, or maybe Splatbomb rush.

    I still really hope for an inkbrush with burst bombs.
    I guess I'd settle for an octo-brush with 'em, as well.

    I'm hoping for a .52 Gal Deco kit with Splash Wall or a bomb(preferably splat/suction) and pretty much any special except Baller and Bubble Blower. I just want a decent kit for this weapon honestly cause I was let down by the vanilla's kit.

    -Place mines as a defensive area while using your longer flings to attack with the transformed roller.
    -Ink Armor helps you approach to use your faster attacks

    I can't wait to try out a Thermal Ink + Ninja Squid build for this weapon. Use the longer flings to mark players then flank around them with ninja squid.

    For me I'd love a Carbon Roller/Octobrush with Curling Bomb and Baller.

    The carbon I've always loved, at different points I've mained both versions. And we already had a Carbon with the Seekers so it would be returning to its roots in some way. The Curling Bomb isn't the Seeker but when it comes to uses, by the looks of it, it's very similar. (I could be wrong, I haven't played the game yet myself. Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong) It could be used as a way of sneaking up on enemies or into enemy territory. Or with the right amount of Swim Speed Up it could be a good escape. That or with the Swim Speed Up it could hide you. I don't see why you can't have the same speed as the Curling Bomb.
    The Octobrush I've recently come to like a lot. And the Curling Bomb could be used for similar reasons. Also with it being one of the weaker rollers damage wise, it could make splatting others easier.

    Now the Baller? Meh, I just want it because it looks fun. Y'know? Why not add on a fun looking special to it? I can splat my enemies and roll off into the sunset in my hamster ball

    Oh that's a great idea to use thermal ink on this weapon! Same thing with the Dynamo too.

    Man, a Dualies set with poison mist and baller would set me up for life! The poison mist combined with the Dualies ability to roll would harass and pin your opponents in awkward spots. The baller is both a minor safety measure but also can be combined with the poison mist or the help of other team members for destructive results! I'd love to experiment with that weapon.

    We're all making these fun and creative wishes- but I think we all know we're just going to get more sets with worthless bomb rushes

    ((still losing my mind about the hideous splat charger sets))

    Did anyone notice any new weapon kits from the various review videos? From what I've seen, we have a Carbon Roller with autobombs/ink rain and the return of the Aerospray RG. (No clue what that's packing, though)

    ...Sounds a bit reminiscent of Carbon Roller Deco? Which I'm not too fond off...hm. But with that new vertical swing, maybe I'll come around to liking it. Who knows.

    Octobrush with Squid Beakons and Ink Armor. the ultimate team support weapon, while being a fearsome weapon on it's own.
