Earlier this week, the official Japanese Splatoon Twitter account revealed the fun-looking Ultra Stamp special weapon was making its way to Splatoon 2 in the next update. That's not all, though. Version 4.2.0 - dropping on 6th/7th November, depending on your region - will also be introducing a new sub weapon known as the Torpedo.

Nintendo has posted a short video clip on its Twitter accounts teasing the new weapon. It takes on the form of a homing missile and will track any opponent player in sight. It changes shape midflight and explodes on impact, splattering ink across the battlefield. As is noted in the official tweet, opponents can take aim to try and prevent the incoming attack. Check it out in action in the video below:

Over on the Splatoon Tumblr page, it's also been announced a level will be under construction from now until 7th November. Here's the post:

From the evening of October 31st, The Reef will be closed for a short while due to repair work. During construction, the stage will not be available in Regular, Ranked, and League Battles. We expect construction to be complete by Wednesday, November 7th. We apologize for the inconvenience during this construction work and thank you for your cooperation.
