Hedge Gun
It is basically a pipe with a plunger at the end. It does not connect with your ink tank so you have to dip it in your teammate's ink. You load it by dipping the nozzle in the ink, sucking it up, and firing the ink far. The shooting distance is sixty feet which is enough to cover more than half of the arena! The gun in operated by turning a lever on the side of the gun to give more leverage in firing. If the wielder of the hedge gun is skilled enough he/she will be able to catch enemy fire inside the nozzle of the weapon. The weapon can then be fired with enemy ink which will not cause harm to the opponent but will generate enough force to knock the enemy back!

Fling Mop
This is basically a mop that is dipped in a bucket, usually held from the side of a bike but it could also be held on the back of the wielder of the weapon. The user will dip the mop into a bucket of ink and create a circle of ink around them by twirling the mop in the air. The circle is usually large enough to slow down any enemy at the fringes of the ink. The mop can also be used to attack opponents by flinging ink at them. The angle of attack would cover 320 degrees and during a full spin (takes practice not to lose balance from getting dizzy) ink can be flung in all directions with the same distance as mid range weapons. Other methods of attack include moving the mop horizontally back and forth to allow great range of attack. The bucket can be dipped directly in ink to refill it or the mop can be used to fill the bucket as happens when used on the bike.

Bootlegger Gun
Used by the cyclist Bootlegger Johnson. The gun is a large PVC pipe with an elbow at the back end and, finally, a cap at the end of the elbow with a small hole. The gun takes three bottle rockets, which are made from plastic coke bottles discarded by inklings at malls and beaches, and loads them into the front of the pipe where they fit into three smaller pipes a little larger than the bottles. The bottle has a rounded drink cap taped to the fat end which the mouth of the bottle has a rubber stop which is also taped. The rubber stop fits into a small pipe inside of the gun which connects to an air chamber with a piston mounted onto a spring. The gun is typically fired by dropping an M80 into the small hole at the end of the elbow of the gun and waiting for the explosion. This compressed the piston quickly which sends the three bottles of ink out to distances of up to 100 feet. Since none of the bottles have fins on them they move in random directions, and being highly pressurized each one has the explosion radius greater than that of a bomb! The weapon is not connected to an ink tank so the bottles much be purchased on the black market and stashed in a locker. Before battling the wielder of the weapon will grab a bunch of bottles and place them into a backpack which he/she holds on the front of his/her body. The bottles do not explode on their own - they must be pressurized and hit something. Dropping them rarely causes them to break and if they do the amount of ink cover is quite small - like spilling a drink. Since the gun is powerful it can serve very well during battle. Any inkling using this gun should take high ground and get away from the crowd. When used from a bike the user is virtually unstoppable which disqualifies it from turf war. It is perfectly legal to use it on foot, though.

Trail Hogs Mist Gun
The famed weapon used by the Trail Hogs when fighting. It consists of a PVC pipe and a narrow needle-like nozzle on the front end. Built very similar to the hedge gun this weapon has the power to create large clouds of ink mist. This can cause damage to an opponent, though, at a slow rate. More importantly it can be hard for an opponent to see as well as a teammate. Trap enemies within the cloud of ink mist and target them within it. More skilled users will be able to create large rain clouds and trap opponents in them. Some clouds can even cause lightning. This often done by mixing salt in with the ink when filling up the ink tank. This practice of "salting the gun" is illegal in turf war!

Ink Caster
The ink caster is a weapon that is made from a bicycle front fork. This weapon is created from old bike parts or stolen from bikes which are parked in alleys. The fork is fitted with a rubber bungee cord which is heat treated with sunlight to soften it. Attached to the loop of the cord is a cut out bottom of a bottle. This bottom is cut on either side and worked into a trough-like cup. The weapon is used to launch bombs which are loaded directly into the trough. The weapon is fired just like a slingshot except that the wielder will move the fork forward as he/she releases the cord which is held back with a metal ring where the thumb and index finger is inserted. The weapon offers longer distance for bomb throwing as well as the ability for bombs to explode on impact. The Trail Hogs are the inventors of this weapon but they do not use conventional turf war bombs. (See Trail Hog Bombs.)

Trail Hog Bombs
These are bombs made from discarded trash such as bottles and ink as well as a propellant. The propellant consists of soda and Menthos or dry ice. It is not known how the bikers obtain dry ice. They may create it. Evidence for this is the fact that dry ice smoke is always leaking out of the side of buildings that they construct in alleys. So, the bomb is made by adding a mixture of ink and crushed Menthos to the bottle. The mixture is capped with a rubber stop and tape. A small squeeze with a thin nib is inserted into the rubber stop. To "ignite the bomb" the user will squeeze the bottle hard to allow the reaction to take place between the Menthos/ink and the soda which the squeeze bottle has. The results pressurizes the ink enough to allow the bottle to explode if it hits an object at high speed or to rocket if going at lower speeds. Usually used in conjunction with the Ink Caster.

Honing Ink Rocket
This is only what an inkling riding a Trail Hog would want as a prized possession. The rocket is made of discarded soda bottles, the cap of a frosty, and a rubber stop. To build the rocket one would take the soda bottle, fill it with ink and crushed Menthos, and tape the cap to the fat end while taping the rubber stop to the mouth. A squeeze bottle with soda is then injected through the rubber stop. This seems like a normal rocket except that it has a small computer on board. The bottle is modified at the rubber stop by inserting a PVC pipe with a five way joint (one facing the rubber stop and four going out at each direction perpendicular to the first joint) and inserting 1/4 inch pipes into it and into the rubber stop going deep into the bottle. From there elbows join pipes to rounded pipe caps forming four exhaust nozzles. The cola is stored in three other pipes each 1/2 an inch wide and with a piston to push the cola through a tube exiting the pipe cap to the fat end of the bottle. All this is welded with epoxy. Of course the soda reacts with ink/Menthos mixture sending ink through the nozzles and causing the rocket to fly! However, each nozzle pipe contains an electric solenoid valve which can each open independently. The pistons pushing the soda out are controlled by two magnets with opposite charges, one being an electromagnet. All this is connected to small card-sized circuitboard encased in fiberglass wool inside of a small plastic box. There is a large flat battery in there as well. The wielder of the weapon control the rocket via a power glove. The glove contains a small joystick to control the nozzle flow rate via the valves and a button that can be depressed little by little. This controls the pistons which inject soda into the bottle. More soda mean more pressure generated and more speed. Finally, there is a small camera mounted to the front of the rocket and a viewfinder built into the side of the power glove. The rocket is normally stored in a pipe on the bike, usually mounted to the front of the bike, horizontally. On the power glove a buttons with numbers are used to control each rocket in a pipe. Rockets and their pipes are usually bundled in groups of 12 with rockets sometimes bundled on the back of the bike as well. Rockets will be shot out of a pipe upon activating the ignition button on top of the joystick and these will fly in the direction given by the joystick. However, there is some image recognition and these can recognize inklings on other teams. To allow rockets to recognize another team a picture must be taken of on of the team members and the picture uploaded to the rocket computers. From there a rocket will be guided until it comes close to the inkling. At this point autopilot is activated by pressing the ignition button all the way. The rocket will then fly into the opponent and explode on contact!

Directional Ink Bomb
This is a directional explosive which is placed under your bike (Trail Hog) to make it fly in the air. The bomb consists of a coke bottle with ink and Menthos inside. A rubber stop is taped to the mouth of the bottle and a squeeze bottle with super saturated soda is squeeze into the coke bottle to increase the pressure. Ink, being viscous forms a wide jet which pushes the bike up a bit. These dropped in one after another to allow actual lift. An attachment to the bottom of the bike, essentially a metal food tray, allows the force to be caught. Why would this type of bomb be necessary? When fighting in Salmon Run a cyclist may reach great heights and actually board the mothership. Various Trail Hog riders such as Frankus have done this and attacked the mothership even downing one! But why would a Trail Hog want eggs in the first place? After all they often come into spawning grounds uninvited through the sewers. "WHAT THE CARP ARE THESE IDOTS DOING HERE? THEY'RE STEALING MY PRECIOUS EGGS!!!", yells Mr. Grizz after Trail Hogs escaped with the basket through the sewers.

Plumber's Snake
This is weapon that consists of a metal pipe shaped in the form a of a snake. The head part is shaped like a Cobra and the rest of the body is u-shaped. The end of the weapon is fattened to house a piston on a spring. The mouth of the snake is dipped into bucket of ink to recharge. The wielder of the weapon pushes a hydrolic piston located on their bike or where ever to actuate the piston in the weapon. This causes a very sharp compression of air due to the ratio of piston width to exit hole which, in turn, causes a long jet of ink to stream out for a few seconds. The stream is very powerful and can defeat a Salmonid Stinger in one shot. The range can reach 120 feet but distances of 200 feet have been achieved with varying results.

Plunger Bow and Arrow
This was created by the leader of a bicycle gang in Inkopolis when he pulled a plunger out of the john. After cleaning the plunger two bows were created, each about four feet in height. Those two bows were tied together to form and X or X-bow. The plunger is counter weighted at the handle end and the plunger handle is inserted into a short pipe to hold it. This pipe is located at the junction of the bows. To fire the weapon the wielder first dabs some ink around the rim of the plunger and pulls it back. Arching the X-bow up, he/she will aim higher than his/her target. The weapon takes some practice to use but if fired properly it can travel up to 300 feet. The X-bow does require a lot of physical strength and is mainly used by adult male inklings. Some variants of it include a large rubber hand attached to the end, typically filled with ink, which will not explode on impact but will give the enemy a knuckle sandwich! Another variant even has a hand that will slap the enemy. This was used during Splatfest when during a disagreement about what the Splatfest theme would be.

The Ink Burglar's Ink Gun
This type of weapon is very similar to the hedge gun except that it uses centripetal force to fire (that is, the gun is lunged forward to cause the piston to compress the charge. This gives a slight boost over just throwing the ink. The range is very short - similar to the Sploosh-o-matic. The ink used is made only by the Ink Burglar. She steals ink from Inkling's and Octoling's ink tanks as well as from ink pots of Salmonids using a small drone with a siphon to drink the ink out of an ink tank or a pot. Using some method of combining the ink she can create the invisible ink which is transparent and nearly invisible to the naked eye. This type of ink can bind to all uninkable surfaces and is very sticky with a consistency similar to BBQ sauce. She produces this ink in her home lab. Because the ink is basically invisible she uses a GPS program from her phone in conjunction with a drone to see where the ink was spayed. It is believed that the drone uses sonar to "see" the ink.

Ink Pie and Ink Spray
This weapon consists of a pie pan and a pressurized spray bottle of ink which is mixed with dry ice to pressure it and give it a foamy texture. The ink is stickier than normal ink and is probably made in a lab. To use the weapon the pipe pan is sprayed with the foamy ink and the pie is loaded into a pipe launcher. The launcher consists of a frying pan attacked to a wooden handle at a hinged joint. A spring on the front of the handle and frying pan keep the weapon ****ed and a lever on the back of the wooden handle releases the pie thrower. Pies are not launched too far and the range is similar to the Sploosh-o-matic, however, a skilled pie thrower can hit his/her opponent in the face which will then render then unable to see. The weapon is banned for turf war as well as ranked battle is actually used by the Trail Hogs to fight the Splatlings.
