Splatoon Tri-Slosher Nouveau Weapon Tour & Nintendome Channel Update ft: NWPlayer123

August 13, 2019

Alright kids and squids, what is going on?
It is Hank here from Nintendome! Today, I am going to be talking about the latest weapon
to hit Splatoon: the Tri-Slosher Nouveau! But, before I talk about that, I want to quickly
give you guys an update on the state of Nintendome. So I am absolutely going to continue the Think
Tank series and the Squid Science series moving into the new year. I hope you guys understand
why I have not been able to make videos for either series. It’s just been a very busy
past couple of months. But I want to thank you all for supporting me through these past
couple of months regardless. It really means alot to me and all of you are just so awesome
for sticking around. I also want to talk to you guys about bringing other types of videos
onto this channel. As you guys definitely know, Splatoon is not going to be receiving
updates perpetually and I’m really curious to see whether or not you guys would mind
me making videos about other games on this channel. Now there are plenty of other games
that I would love to make videos on but I have no idea if you guys would be interested
in them. RIght now, some of the games I’m playing are Pokemon, Minecraft for Wii U,
Super Smash Bros, Super Mario Maker, etc.- just games like that in general! So I linked
to the poll where you can vote down in the description below. It’s right past that
like button, which you should totally hit by the way, but yeah with that aside, let’s
go ahead and talk about the Tri-Slosher Nouveau. Alright, so this is a weapon that my buddy
Jack, AKA the Triforce kid has been anticipating in Splatoon for a very long time. I know I
didn’t give the Tri-Slosher very much credit the last time I talked about it but I actually
just want to go ahead and say I was completely wrong. The main weapon is actually quite viable
and I almost feel like it’s the spiritual successor to the roller. Now one of the greatest aspects of the Tri-Slosher
main weapon is its consistent damage output. So I’ve noticed that you really don’t
need Damage Up on this weapon because the damage will rarely taper off. Even if your
opponent is running triple defense ups, you can usually get that 2 hit KO at max range.
Of course, it’s also got that wide ink spread that kind of decreases the need to aim a little
bit. But hey, that’s fine. Now this is a custom weapon so the nitty gritty is really
be with the weapon’s kit. For a sub weapon it’s rocking the seekers!
And I’m a bit conflicted on this. While the the main tri-slosher’s weakness is an
inability to pressure opponents that are very far away, I’m not sure the seeker actually
does that very effectively. Generally, it’s kind of hard to kill an opponent with the
seeker, especially if you two are in an engagement and he or she knows to pay attention for it.
However, I have found seekers to be very useful for movement. Swimming with the seeker trail
and then stealthily jumping out can be a very effective strategy. Of course, this works
way better on maps like Port Mackerel and Arowana Mall. But in general, doing this is
just something nice to keep in mind. Now the special weapon is echolocator. Echolocator
in general is very solid and while this weapon does not do a great job at taking advantage
of echolocation on its own, it’s always nice to have another option if you want to
fit in echolocation on your team composition. So definitely no complaints here on that front
and I am one hundred percent sure that you guys expected me to say that because let’s
be real, I always praise echolocation. So in terms of general gameplay style, I definitely
think this is a weapon that warrants being a bit more aggressive. The seekers allow you
to stealthily get into your opponent’s areas while still maintaining a full ink tank. And
the awareness echolocation provides will be especially crucial when you’re in your opponent’s
territory. And of course, the main tri-slosher weapon itself is stellar in close range combat.
So definitely getting those flanks and getting the initiative off of your engagement is going
to be your number one objective. Now in terms of abilities, I actually do not
have a crazy amount to say. I definitely think you should be rocking Swim Speed Up but I
pretty much think that for almost every weapon in the game. Honestly guys, Swim Speed Up
might be the best stackable ability in Splatoon. Half of this game is movement and Swim Speed
Up just gives you the edge in that regard. However, the other ability that I want to
recommend is Ink Recovery Up. Now note that I’m not talking about Ink Saver Main. I
really think Ink Recovery Up is just superior to Ink Saver Main on this weapon. For example,
when you do that Seeker technique that I talked about earlier, Ink Recovery Up would allow
you to fill up your ink tank more quickly, which allows you to jump out of a seeker trail
with a full Ink Tank at an earlier point in time. This is also a weapon that is not going to
be rapidly sloshing as the range is quite bad. So you’re going to need to move in
between your shots quite a bit and more often than not, when you’re moving, you’re swimming
and when you’re swimming, you are recovering ink. So I hope that logic kind of makes sense.
If you disagree I would be more than happy to talk to you guys about it down in the comments
section below. And actually, I would love to hear your thoughts on the Tri-Slosher in
general down in the comments section below as well. That’s all for now guys! Thank
you so much for watching. If you’re feeling extra fresh, go ahead and hit that like button
and subscribe for more Splatoon videos. And also, please don’t forget to vote in the
Straw Poll; it would really mean alot to me. But… I guess that’s all for now guys.
Thank you so much for watching.

However, I'll be honest and say that I might not tune in, as the primary reason I subbed was for Splatoon. but it's your channel, and if you want to post other games that's totally your call

Or maybe you can do smash and do tips tricks and tutorials on how to use characters! Hope this helps I'm with ya no matter what! Your NINTENDOme not splatoondome so lol 😅

  • Reply Dani December 19, 2015 at 5:59 pm

    I used to dislike the Tri-Slosher, but I like it now. Again, disruptors. But the new one, I still haven't tried.
    I don't feel like trying it until Splatfest is over. I like seekers, but I really don't want to work with them on maps like Mahi-Mahi Resort and Urchin Underpass, where there are many more corners and things (LIKE THOSE TREES) blocking the seeker path.

    Gotta go win for Team Nice!

  • Reply SteelBasilisk December 19, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    personally, I main the normal slosher in most ranked modes (depending on the maps) I really thing it lost its viability . the Seekers won't help you take the tower,and echolocation is not good in tower control. I feel like the disrupted are overall a better option. Throw on the tower, and they are sitting ducks waiting to be killed. So, personally, I would go with the normal tri-slosher. Also,another good ability on this weapon is ink resistance. Ninja Squid works very well if you are riding the seeker's path.

  • Reply Leonidas December 19, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    I'd love if you did more content 🙂 not sure how much you like SSB, but advice and stat videos much like you do for Splatoon weapons would be great. Something else I think would be really cool and unique is Pikmin related videos, there aren't too many of those around. Also something that would be cool to see is how different LoZ weapons react with different enemies (for example, in Wind Waker you can get different items from different enemies with the grappling hook). Another thing with LoZ is stuff like cool easter eggs and fun bits of dialogue. Basically, charming Nintendo things don't seem to be covered enough, which is a shame considering how Nintendo excel in making their games charming and unique.

  • Reply BananaBeards2311 December 20, 2015 at 5:16 am

    I'm a bit skeptacle about this weapon. The seekers give it a bit more range but you can kind of nullify seekers' ability to splat by pressing x. And while the echolocator is EXCELLENT I think that for a weapon that is forced to play aggressively as the tri slosher the "get out of jail free" card that is the bubbler is a bit better for the tri. Also I personally believe the disrupter to be the most underrated sub in the game as it removes any stealth or movement advantage the opponent may have. Maybe that last part is a bit biased but i think disrupters are just generally better than seekers. That is just my opinion on this weapon 🙂

  • Reply Tonbot74 December 20, 2015 at 5:24 am

    Not trislosher related, but I did have another question for you. You mentioned how swim speed is one of the best abilities in the game because of mobility etc., but what do you think about ninja squid? As you know, it lowers your swim speed by a lot, so does that make it a bad ability in your eyes? Just curious on what the experts think, because personally I love ninja squid.

  • Reply Tingle December 20, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    This weapon really does burn through ink fast, so I agree with having ink recovery. I'm still not sure if I like it more than the regular slosher. (Got to get on that burst cancelling!)

    Also, as you may have guessed, I don't mind what you focus your channel on as long as you keep making me smile!

    Tri sloshers are more forgiving in terms of accuracy especially when your opponent moves like squirrels that just can't stay put. Its also easier to double and triple kill people. Only bad thing is most shooters can outrange you or kill you faster before you even go for your second hit.

    Absolutely fresh Hank!
    This video, that features the Tri-Slosher Noveau, with it's seeker-echolocator kit, lacks an info that's truly fascinating, practical, and will absolutely shock you!

    The damage is constant in all of its(Tri-Slosher)ink trail. The regular Slosher's damage output is this: the further the ink trail travels the higher the damage output and vice versa, yet the Tri-Slosher's damage output is the same in all of its area of ink spread. So obviously you can multi-splat at close range! Think about it! I mean, based on what I saw and heard, this synergies with the Roller main class very effectively!

    Would you kindly make squid synergies, and squid strategies?
    You know show us weapons that synergies with other weapons to make a truly superior team composition, and strategies for every stage, and team. I hope what I typed is crystal clear.
    Thank you so much Hank, you've done so much for us, I know I would have done the same for you if we switched places.

    The regular Tri-Slosher is one of my favourite weapons in the game. I love having the disruptor paired with it so I don't think I can trade it for a seeker.

    obody gets how to use a seeker. if you try and use it as ONLY a ranged defence it is not going to work that well BUT if you stay in it's ripples in squid form you can surprise your opponent or sneak by them in a very effective ways. seekers are also great for breaking the rainmaker's shield and takes less seekers than even charger blasts.

    Great overview.

    I was a slosher main, but once I realized that the tri slosher's damage is so much more consistent, I actually switch between the tri slosher (noveau) and sloshing machine based on how much range vs. close quarters effectiveness I need.

I really like using them when I'm playing Splat Zones with more than two because I can stay at our zone and throw seekers into the other!
