The L-3 Nozzlenose D benefits from playing aggressively on the frontline, as its ability to combo with Burst Bombs makes it effective at killing. Its range and fire rate allow you to keep enemies at bay or push them back. Having Inkjet as a special allows this weapon to be used in all modes, especially because its fast special charge speed allows you to use it often.
- Special Power Up increases the duration of Inkjet and increases its shot explosion radius, making enemies easier to hit. Between one and two mains can be used based on your preference.
- Comeback provides many useful abilities, most of which can be utilized effectively by the L-3 D. This ability is suited for an aggressive playstyle because you will have the effects for more time throughout each match.
- Swim Speed Up is helpful for positioning, avoiding enemies, and returning to the battle after respawning.
- Special Saver greatly increases the amount of specials you will be able to use each match, especially when combined with the Special Charge Up effects of Comeback. Simply throwing a few Burst Bombs after respawning can fill the special meter quickly.
- Sub Power Up increases the range and velocity of Burst Bombs. The high velocity makes enemies easier to hit, while the increased range makes them more effective against enemies you can't reach otherwise.
- Ink Recovery Up can be useful for those who find themselves running out of ink by using Burst Bombs frequently.
- Run Speed Up is effective on the L-3 since it has a high run speed while firing.
- Object Shredder allows you to take out enemies' Ink Armor with only one shot. This ability is especially useful in Rainmaker, since it also affects the shield.
- Stealth Jump can be used if you want to make risky jumps and very aggressive plays.
