How strong your character is in Splatoon 3 depends primarily on his equipment. In the guide you will learn all the important ones Information about equipment, effects and improvements.
What do I get with new equipment in Splatoon 3?
In addition to your weapon, there are three different types of gear: head, clothing, and shoes. After you reach level 4, you can in the shops of Splatsville buy new equipment.
The coins you need to buy new equipment can be obtained by playing all modes. Equipment pieces have different effectswhich grant you passive bonuses.
Effects can be yours, for example Increase swimming speed or reduce the ink cost of sub-weapons. The more effects your equipment has, the more advantages you have in battle.
Improve equipment – how it works
Increase star value and unlock effect fields
Each piece of equipment has a main effect and up to three additional effects. You unlock new additional effects by collecting experience points with your equipment.
That first bonus field for an additional effect will be activated automatically. You unlock the remaining two fields by increasing the star value of the piece of equipment.
There are two ways to increase star value: Speak to Sid outside the lobby to increase the star value of a piece of gear in exchange for Super Clams. Super Clams are obtained by participating in Splatfest.
For the second method, you must use a piece of equipment that you already own buy again. Check out the stores regularly. The traders will automatically alert you when you can increase a star value.
What are Effect Fragments?
New additional effects that you get by leveling your equipment are always determined randomly. Effect Fragments allow you to random effects Replace with effects of your choice.
How do I get Effect Fragments?
- Salmon Run: You will be rewarded with new pieces of equipment for successful rounds. If you already own the part, you will receive Effect Fragments instead.
- Campaign: You also get a lot of effect fragments for playing the campaign.
- Yid: If you empty additional fields or add new effects, you will get effect fragments.
- Capsule vending machine: There is a capsule machine next to the elevator in the lobby. For a handful of coins you will receive a random reward – this can also include effect fragments.
