Splatoon 2 Guide: How To Unlock And Upgrade Weapons

Splatoon 2

There are tons of different weapons that players can use in the new Nintendo Switch game called Splatoon 2. At the start of the game, players will have the normal weapons that they will have to use, in order to progress through the game, but after reaching a certain point in the game, players will get the ability to upgrade their weapons.

Upgraded weapons have better stats, compared to the normal weapons. You can upgrade your weapons to have better range, higher damage, and more. But before you start upgrading your weapons, you must progress through the game.

How To Unlock And Upgrade Weapons In Splatoon 2:

Before you start upgrading your weapons, you will have to do a few things. First of all, you will have to complete the 3rd Lair. To do this, you must clear the lair and defeat the boss. Once you have done that, you will unlock the Ammo Knight’s Enhancifier. This is where you can go to upgrade Sheldon’s weapons. After you defeat the first boss, you will get a Hero Weapon.

To upgrade your weapons, you will also need Sardinium and Power Eggs. Power Eggs are easy to obtain, as they are scattered all over the lairs of Splatoon 2. Power Eggs can be obtained by collecting them in lairs, or destroying crates and balloons. Another method of obtaining Power Eggs is by completing levels. At the end of a level, you will be rewarded with a certain amount of Power Eggs.

Sardinium on the other hand are a more rare collectible. This item is not as common as the Power Eggs, and players might have a hard time finding them. Sardiniums can be found in lairs, so keep an eye out for them. A guide on how to find all 12 Sardiniums will be published soon.

Once you have gathered enough Sardiniums and Power Eggs, head over to the Ammo Knight Enhancifier and interact with it to upgrade your weapon. Select the weapon you want to upgrade and the Enhanicifer will do the rest. Now you have a weapon that is more effective, compared to the normal version.

Hopefully this guide helped you upgrade your weapons in Splatoon 2. The game is now available on the Nintendo Switch.
