How the device works in Splatoon 3
All devices are available main ability slot and up to three sub lot. Higher power star a gear piece has, the more side grooves it has. Each star the device has after its second increases the amount of XP you get.
You can play matches of Turf War or Anarchy Battle to gain XP on your device and doing so will give it random new abilities (if it has gaps) or Ability Chunks. You can use Ability Chunks to choose the specific ability you want to include in your gear to avoid the element of randomness.
Depending on the brand of the device, specific abilities will appear on it more often and others will appear less often. We make the table below.

How to upgrade equipment and use Ability Chunks
Murch, the sea urchin sitting just outside the lobby, provides a range of important services. He will remove all secondary skills from your gear and give you a Skill Fragment for each skill for 20,000 gold. If you give him Super sea snailYou can also power up your device or completely roll back its ability tiles.
Notably, he can also use Ability Chunks to set up specific abilities on your device. It takes 45 Ability Chunks to set the primary ability and 10 Ability Chunks to set the first secondary ability on an item shard. However, if you want to place multiple copies of the same ability on one set of items, the cost of Ability Chunk will increase to 20 for two of the same abilities and 30 for three abilities. (For example, if I want three Increase swimming speed skill on my shoe will cost me a total of 60 Swim Speed Boost Skill Chunks.)
You can also increase your star power if you buy copies of the same equipment in the regular stores. However, this will become expensive, as each upgrade will cost more. You can also reset abilities on a device by trading your skills for a device at the shop, but you won’t get any Abilities from this.
How to Farm the Abilities Chunks Quickly
There are two great ways to farm Ability Chunks: Salmon Run and Splatfests.
Use Salmon Run to farm blocks
Salmon Run multiple times will reward you with random bonus pellets and a specific piece of equipment. (As of this writing, the device in question is the Bream-Brim Hat.) You can only have one copy of this equipment, so the other one will be discarded and you will gain Ability Chunks for skills. power. Just spamming Salmon Run and trying to equip it is an easy way to accumulate Ability Chunks quickly.
Salmon Run’s bounty meter resets every 40 hours, so you’ll have to earn around 1,200 points before you start just getting gear as a reward every time it resets.
Use Splatfests to farm blocks
The Splatfest T-shirt (which you can get a week before any Splatfest) has three extra slots and only cost 2,000 gold to rub. Play casual matches with potentially fast and cheap Splatfest Tee gear.
To take it a step further, if you have an ability drink for an ability you want, use it. (You can get drink abilities from Shelling machine random.)
If you use a skill drink, your device will roll that ability at a higher rate. Players who use this strategy recommend scrubbing your Splatfest Tee after it is likely to minimize the use of the drink for the first time, as it only works for 20 matches.
Which ability is the best in Splatoon 3?
There is one type of ability that people use the most, like Speed Swim and Ink Saver, but the exact ability you set on your device depends on your playstyle and weapon choice.
If you like to dive in and bomb, then Speed Swim, Toner Saver (Secondary) and Ink Recovery might be worth your while. If you like firing your Tenta Rocket, perhaps Special Power will be your side-ability.
