There are many special weapons in Splatoon 3. These weapons charge up once you have started inking everything in sight. One of these specials is called the Tacticooler, but at first glance, players may wonder what the Tacticooler even does in Splatoon 3.
What do the Tacticooler drinks do in Splatoon 3?
The Tacticooler is a special weapon, essentially a four-way drinks dispenser in Splatoon 3. After it is placed, all players on your team can take a drink and get buffed up. The buff lasts until it expires or until you get splattered. The special lasts for 15 seconds and will disappear with any unused drinks.
Each soda can gives you the maximum ability points you can get, which is 57. This is akin to having full three-star gear in every slot, with all sub-ability slots unlocked for a limited time, on top of the gear you already have equipped.
The abilities you get from a Tacticooler will be random but are selected from a relatively small pool. There is no way of knowing what abilities you will get or have received unless you can tell you're moving faster etc. Here's the list of abilities you may acquire:
- Swim Speed Up
- Run Speed Up
- Intensify Action
- Quick Super Jump
- Quick Respawn
- Special Saver
- Ink Resistance Up
The Tacticooler comes equipped with four weapons:
- N-Zap '85—Unlocked at level 6
- Dynamo Roller—Unlocked at level 12
- Dapple Dualies—Unlocked at level 14
- H-3 Nozzelnose—Unlocked at level 24
Overall the Tacticooler is incredibly useful when playing with friends or as a team in communication because the Tacticooler's buff is nothing to scoff at. Having the right team composition is essential when playing at a higher level, and the Tacticooler should be considered in that team.
