It's actually a good thing subs and specials are locked.

    Otherwise we would have to deal with splatbomb bubbler chargers. That makes me shiffer.

    Or burst bomb everything. Which would extremely accelerate the current damage/defense meta

    Thinking of Disruptors + Kraken makes me shiver in fear.

    Thinking of Point Sensors + Bomb Rush does not.

    What if subs balanced themselves depending on the main weapon they are loaded with? Actually, I guess it would complicate things more.

    Inkmine+Kraken would be a nightmare. And imagine that on a Slosher too. *shudders*

    I once entertained the idea that every weapon should be able to choose either their set sub or burst bombs, but I quickly realized just how tragic that would be.

    I just imagined a dynamo with burst bombs. Thanks for the nightmares.

    Why would anyone care about that when the almighty Burst Bomb exists?

    Pshaw, you mean to tell me Burst Bomb + Hydra wouldn't be super balanced?

    Ohhh dear. Do elaborate. O.O

    There are MANY weapon sets in Splatoon as of now so finding the perfect one is pretty hard.

    game balancing would be more difficult, and the subs and specials, themselves, would probably be nerfed further to prevent "op combos".

    I'm glad for the set sub and specials on weapons. As everyone has already pointed out, the game would be full of people using overpowered combinations. It also gives people an incentive to try out more weapons and see what they like.

    It's really quite simple. /r/Splatoon is scrub city.

    As snipers have shown, you don't actually need a primary weapon. All you need is burst bombs....

    You mean just E-Liters.


    Funny enough I am an E-Liter user who actually uses her main weapon 75% of the time (THE SHOCK COMES OVER ALL OF THE FACES).

    I'm actually glad that subs are locked because burst bombs on everything would be soo annoying.

    I'm pretty sure the Splash Neo is basically just burst bombs + a way to charge inkzooka.
