Splatoon 2 Brings The Hammer Down In Next Update (VIDEO)
The multi-colored mayhem of Splatoon 2 may have recently announced its final map and concluded its spooktacular event, but that by no means signals the end of the Nintendo title’s content cycle. A nifty new update has now been confirmed that will introduce a unique new weapon to the normally shooter-based proceedings.
Update 4.2.0 is set to present players the “Ultra Stamp,” a new weapon that’s sure to leave an impression on the battlefield. The clobbering device deals some big, enemy-pancaking damage, but the trade-off to wielding the massive mallet is leaving users more vulnerable to attack. While the Ultra Stamp definitely earns its namesake, it sure also operates like a big ol’ hammer. With the added ability to hurl the weapon at enemies, it seems like one that Thor himself would likely be proud of. Check it out in action below.
A new special weapon is coming to #Splatoon2! The Ultra Stamp lets players swing away with a big hammer! You’ll be a powerhouse from the front with this weapon, but make sure someone’s got your back since you’ll be vulnerable from behind!https://t.co/PmGvq1cnvW pic.twitter.com/Z3qm7uXq2x

This latest addition to Splatoon 2 may look like a new type of melee weapon joining the fight, but in reality, the Ultra Stamp is a Special Weapon reserved for when players’ meters are fully charged. This is probably a good call, as including the flattening apparatus in the regular loadout would probably lead to endless hammering contests between every player in the level. Splatoon 2’s 4.2.0 Update will hammer home on November 7th.
