The Chill Season has brought with it several new weapons and other rewards, including this nifty looking charger. You can unlock the Snipewriter 5H just like any other weapon. Visit Sheldon at Ammo Knights in Splatsville and he’ll give you a rundown of every weapon at your disposal. Unless you are in the market to spend a gold ticket, the Snipewriter 5H will not be available for purchase until you reach level 16. Once you’ve reached the right level, simply visit Ammo Knights and purchase the Snipewriter 5H for the low price of a Silver Ticket.

The Snipewriter 5H is a charger style weapon but with a little twist. Holding down the ZR button builds up the charge, allowing the gun to hold five separate shots on a single charge. When fully charged, the weapon’s base damage is 60, dropping to 40-60 when partially charged.

The secondary weapon for the Snipewriter 5H is the Sprinkler, which allows players to lay down much-needed cover fire in areas, and its specialty is the Tacticooler, which can bestow valuable buffs on allies.

Although this new weapon in Splatoon 3 offers an increased rate of fire over other Charger-style weapons, there’s a trade-off. Each of the five shots is significantly less powerful than other Chargers, meaning it doesn’t have the stopping ability of the Splatterscope. With that in mind, the Snipewriter 5H is best suited for a support and cover role.

Once the weapon is charged, press the ZR button repeatedly to unload the saved shots. Keep in mind that like many other Splatoon series chargers, you cannot hold the charge. Once you start shooting, you won’t be able to stop or you’ll lose all unused shots. Take advantage of the Snipewriter 5H’s range and hold back by using reels and sloshers to keep enemies away from your allies, allowing them to invade and mark territory.

The Sprinkler sub-weapon is well-suited to this support role, allowing players to throw ink in all directions when things get tight. Use it mid-fight and watch the other side scatter. Once your special is charged, send it off, as the drinks in the Tacticooler can help turn the tide of battle. How to unlock and use the Snipewriter 5H in Splatoon 3
