    Hey, so I was looking around on inkipedia for information on respawn rates, hp regeneration rate, whether or not respawns take longer after more deaths, and damage for certain weapons. I couldn't find anything on the first three topics, and there was a discrepancy on weapon damage for the Splattershot Pro. The weapon page says it does 55 dmg, while a graph on the defense up page says it does 42, and the splatoon wikia claims it does 60 dmg.

    So I have three questions.

    Is there a site where I can find and learn the inner mechanics of the game? (like serenes forest or serebii)
    Which of these pages is wrong and where can I find reliable data? (I guess a repeat of question 1)
    And what is the difference between base damage and actual damage?

    I think I can help,

    ... in game weapon rating values are confusing, and only make sense when comparing a weapon's stats to another gun in the same class (splattershot v .52 gal, squiffer v e-liter, etc.)
    So it is best to ignore those values when doing anything except weapon comparison.

    The number circled in blue in the above pic. (also the numbers that show up on those damage charts on inkipedia) are the actual in game damage numbers, aka. how much damage each bullet you fire does (before reaching it's max effective range and begins to fall) to your opponent.

    Regarding respawning, it is a static time for respawning throughout the match, barring any gear abilities modifying it. It matters naught when or how many times you get splatted. Only :ability_quickrespawn: and :ability_lastditcheffort: can affect your respawn time.

    And I've... actually never bothered to look into regen values... huh
    If you can't find it on Inkipedia, try checking the Inkademy discord server.


    Lastly, regarding getting hard data on your own via internet, I'd recommend Inkipedia, The Inkademy (discord, check channel "#data") oooor the jp wiki (they also have good numbers, but I don't much care for navigating a site in aa foreign language if I ca help it)

    I haven't used the wikia for at least a yearand a half, so I cannot attest to how accurate their data is xP
