I ponder my weapon options for Rainmaker, and decide on the Soda Slosher. Its spread isn't as good as the Tri-slosher, but it has a little extra range, and the Inkzooka should help with inking paths for the Rainmaker. If we ever get the Rainmaker.
One splat in to the battle and then I'm struggling against the tide of purple ink. It doesn't help that I squid up in to the Rainmaker's blast, but at least I figure out that I'm not carrying the Rainmaker in good time a bit later.
And it's not all doom and gloom. I get a few decent splats here and there, stopping the Rainmaker short, getting a double-splat with the Inkzooka, and providing some support for the team. It just seems that there is far more purple ink on the turf at any one moment than teal.
I think I may have an opportunity to make some progress at one point. The Rainmaker is right there, no purple inklings around, and the side route is calling me. Unfortunately, I am a little slow in realising, and the purple inklings like the side route themselves. Never mind.
One last chance to turn the battle around, and I grab the Rainmaker as the clock ticks down. Can I do it?
