So in splatoon 2 there are different kind of 'armors', those being classified by stars (1 star, 2 stars, 3 stars). Each of these stars grants to the item one more random perk (or this is what I guess from what I've seen).

I managed to give one additional perk to a '2 stars' item so it got all the perks but still being a '2 stars' item. Is it as good as a 3 stars item now? Is there a difference anymore?

If I clean the perks of this 2 stars item will it lose the additional slot?

Any additional information about armor improvement and management will be appreciated.

All that the stars mean is how many slots it comes with. A two star item with an extra slot unlocked is identical to a three star item.

Cleaning the abilities on gear does not remove any additional slots you gave it.

  • Glad to read that. So I can take any fashion clothing and transform it into a powerful piece of armor. I forgot to ask something else: Can the main perk of an armor be changed?

    @Grirg No, the main ability of gear cannot be changed. At a high level you can use this to your advantage -- if you see your opponent is wearing a Shrimp Pink Polo, for example, then you know they've got Ninja Squid.

  • @Pyritie True though that may be, in Splatoon 2 you can also just look at the map screen and see the three primary abilities of each opponent (and your teammates).
