    I played Splatoon 2 professionally for a while when it was first released, cranked 1400 hours and then stopped playing after burnout. I stopped playing when the Enperry dualies were meta. What has been notably changed with the meta? How can I adapt? What mechanics have changed? What should I look out for? What new techniques are there I should know about? What nerfs/buffs/changes should I look out for? Thank you.

    so basically
    kensa pro is the best weapon in the game rn with 3 mains and 4 subs of mpu for 49.9 damage
    tent is now one of the best weapons, esp camo tent but vanilla is also really good
    missiles are actually good now and ironically better than inkjet, thus making kensa splattershot one of the best slayers in the game
    inkbrush nouveau is a clams and zones top tier
    so is vanilla l3 with 3 mains and 3 subs mpu
    dualies are kinda screwed because kpro destroys them along with almost every other weapon in the game
    sloshers are dumb good, soda being probably the best sloshers
    sting ray has fallen out of the meta thank god
    booyah bomb is a new special and it's really good, best weapons with it are kpro and heavy remix
    so yeah that's all off the top of my head join some discord servers if you wanna learn more about the meta

    You, my good sir, are an angel. Thank you for teaching me. This game has changed a LOT since I last played, makes me a little sad but the old meta was getting boring. Main power up makes me question the balancing team a little too

    L3 only needs a pure of mpu not 3 mains 3 subs. Also dont undervalue kensa machine which is also a popular slayer choice. Armor is still a really good special, I know jr is super popular now, with some slight off-meta armor picks being nzap and 96 gal, although based on jp tourney data perhaps h3 will make a return over jr but time will tell. Also ballpoint nouveau is often a popular pick for splatling mains since the main weapon is broken af. Idk I’m prolly missing other stuff but that’s what I thought to add

    also, don't undervalue pretty much any kensa slayer- kensa dualies' kit is still super viable, pro is obviously meta, and kensa machine, while not as broken as it used to be, can still get the job done. heavy remix is the most used splatling ive seen, and a great backline with booyah bomb to finish off a great set. like mar$el said, armor's great, and usually used with nzap for armor spam ftw. i havent seen people using jr because while it can still armorspam it has dismal range (says the biased nzap player lol), and ballpoint (esp noveau) are definitely great in higher tiers.
