The Bomb Launcher special allows you to launch bombs without consuming any ink. The longer a player holds the R button, the farther the bomb will travel. They also come in different varieties: Splat-Bomb Launcher, Curling-Bomb Launcher, Autobomb Launcher, etc. We also discovered that this special doesn’t necessarily tie to your kit’s sub weapon, meaning you might discover a kit with Suction Bomb sub and Curling-Bomb Launcher special, for example.
