    Dual/Burst/Zooka. OP.
     
  3. My dream combo would be The Refurbished Mini Splatling, but instead of Burst Bomb Rush Echolocator. The Burst Bomb Rush fits my playstyle very well though so I can't complain I guess lol

    A Heavy Splatling with Beakons. Literally doesn't matter what the special is, just give me Beakons.

    A Jet Squelcher with Burst Bombs and the Bubbler, because my playstyle isn't irritating enough already :p

    Custom Jet has Burst Bombs and Kraken, that's pretty close.

    Kraken is mighty but short-range. I want to be able to get into a duel with a charger and drive them nuts by turning invincible at a crucial moment so they can't shoot me but I can shoot them :p

    Custom Hyrda with Ink Wall and Bubbler = The perfect defensive weapon.

    Woulda loved if the vanilla Slosher had Echolocater or Bubbler or Bomb Rush instead of Inkstrike. Already has my ideal sub in Burst Bombs so it just needs a better special. Thankfully Splatoon 2 is only using new specials so the vanilla Slosher will atleast be held back by the Inkstrike no more. If it keeps it's Burst Bombs and the new special it gets is good then that could very well be my ideal weapon!

    a squiffer with splat bombs and... idk, echo locator? more than anything i just want a bomb that can both flush people out and also explode fast enough to work as an escape.

    I think that's pretty much the Bamboozler MKIII, I don't see the squiffer getting that because the two would be so similar in function by that point and honestly the Bamboozler would be the better of the two.

    but the MK III is burst bombs and inkstrike?

    the difference for me is that burst bombs are mobility and making the difference with damage to score clean 2HKOs where splat bombs on a squiffer would mostly be a way of forcing traffic (get those tricky players out of those spots the squiffer can't do anything about) and a covered escape (which burst bombs can't do since they don't stick around). i guess i'm mostly just mad that suction bombs take so long to explode (with such high ink consumption) and the gimmick of sneaky splats through good placement is not really all that important on the squiffer (that already excels at sneaky shots out of nowhere).

    i guess it would be similar in function to the MK III? but the bamboozler always seems more like a fortress who travels with the group whereas on squiffer i tend to be moving around on my own (often close to but separated from my allies) to get my enemy at odd angles.

    It would be interesting to see a splattershot with splat bomb and kraken. Either that or burst bomb and echo.

    Aw geeze your post made me realize how much I'd use a splattershot pro with burst bombs and echo xP
    I want it almost more than I want a disruptor bubbler dynamo roller.

    If no one's said it, something that might be broken but I'd like is a standard or carbon roller with seekers/burst bomb and kraken.

    A sloshing machine with burst bombs would be great as you'd be able to burst cancel instead of just getting two hits with the sloshing machine itself. For the special I'd pick the echolocator as if you have bomb range up and the echo is up you can just try sniping with your burst bombs. Would be the perfect combination for my usual playstyle.

    a slosher (not tri) with disruptors/seekers, and then echo-locator/kraken special would be my cup of tea.
    an slosher with suction bombs would also be fun.
    least invention, an splattershot pro with burst bombs and bubler special.

    now i'm wondering if one of the suggestions in this thread will make it in splatoon 2...
