Ink Resistance Up

Ink Resistance Up is a great ability, especially for those who like to get up close and personal. This will reduce the damage you take from enemy ink, providing some extra longevity as well as letting you walk through enemy ink faster.

Quick Super Jump

Using Super Jump is one of the best ways to get around the map, especially in the middle of an intense battle. This ability will speed up the process, making Quick Super Jump one of the best ways to get back into the fight.

Special Saver

For those who find themselves getting splatted often, the Special Saver is a handy tool that lets you hold onto more of your special's charge when you respawn. Those on the frontline should definitely consider using this, as they are the most likely to get splatted.

Stealth Jump

There is nothing worse than Super Jumping across the map only to get splatted as soon as you land. Stealth Jump removes the indicator showing where you will land, preventing opponents from waiting at your landing sight and letting you sneakily get across the map.

Swim Speed Up

Swim Speed Up increases your speed while swimming through your team's ink. This is extremely handy when you need to retreat or reach the frontline. Regardless of your weapon, Swim Speed Up is a great choice for one of your abilities.
