What does the Tacticooler do?

Tacticooler is a special weapon in Splatoon 3. Upon activation, a cylindrical object stands upright and opens four drawers having containers with each container having 1 drink each.

Tacticooler is quite useful. It gives you a speed boost when you drink the cans of Tacticooler. This effect lets you run faster, swim faster, and respawns you immediately when it’s used

How to use Tacticooler in Splatoon 3

The Tacticooler cans will be picked up and consumed by you or a member of your team whenever you or your teammates are near the tacticooler.

Only one drink can is used at a time by each player on your team, and they cannot be grabbed by enemies.

Tacticoolers work best when all four team members grab one can each. Place it when your teammates are around, so you’ll have a lot of people to help.


The cooler itself can also be used as a mini shield if you get attacked as it has a hitbox and blocks all incoming damage.
