Splatting performance is one of the first things to consider when deciding which weapon to use for Rainmaker mode. Weapons offering versatility, however, make them even better by granting players good mobility, area-of-effect and splash damage, inking potential, or team utility and support.
Finally, overall ease-of-use is also important, especially if a weapon can constantly produce good results when wielded by players across various skill levels.
