I'm trying to rank up in the modes and as I'm progressing I've found the players to be more challenging.
What are the best weapons to use? Right now I'm using the Neo Sploosh, but the Inkbrush is alright too.
The .52 gal with 4 Main Power Ups could do damage and I was tihnking of that.. Is there a tier list around anywhere for the weapons?

A lot of top players have made their own tier lists recently, and they're reasonably similar. The general thought it that the Kensa Sloshing Machine, Kensa Splat Dualies and Ballpoint Splatling Nouveau are the best at the moment.

The Dualies are probably the most reliable bet if you're looking to pick something up, since they're not likely to get a significant nerf and even if they did it's an easy transition to several other really good weapons.

What level do you unlock the Kensa Splat Dualies at?

No. That just increases your aim while, jumping, which is nice but doesnt overcome the 1v1 flaws the weapon has. Nice weapon but not top weapon.

Level 16. The main weapon is the same as normal Splat Dualies by the way, just with a different kit (Baller is pretty much the best special)

Neo Sploosh-O-Matic is just hot garbage. But right now Kensa Dualies or Kensa Sloshing Machine are the gud ones rn

It says increases damage in the ability box.

What are the best abilities to have on clothing? I've decided to save my cash and make my gear custom, since buying new gear and unlocking the abilities will always be random.

I like the fact that I can use the Squid Beacons, they've become very useful.

The effect is different for every weapon. To check what it is for a weapon, just equip the weapon you wanna check and then go look at the ability box.

I'd answer your question but tbh I don't care about meta or strategy. Use what weapons you're good with, nintendo does a pretty good job of balancing most weapons. Just because you're using a weapon that's "overpowered" doesn't mean you're magically a god.

On that note, if you want something that is pretty similar to Sploosh but better, be sure to try out Dapple Dualies (they have Beacons too). They unlock quite late, like level 26 or something, but I imagine you'll like them.
