The Hero Shot Replica is based off of the Hero Shot, the main Shooter only usable in Octo Valley and during the Inkling Squid amiibo challenges. However, when the blueprints are given to Sheldon at Ammo Knights, the player is informed that he can not recreate the technology used in the original gun, so only a replica could be made. Therefore it loses the 3 switchable sub weapons to just regular Splat bombs (In which the design changes to a regular Splat bomb) and is unable to be upgraded. The replica shares the exact stats as the Splattershot and the same Sub/Special loadout (Burst Bombs and Bomb Rush).

— In-Game Description(EU/OC)
The Ink Saver (Main) ability decreases the ink usage of main weapons by up to 60% of their normal usage. This allows players to take advantage of the Splattershot's range (50) and fire rate (55) without running out of ink so quickly. Splash Mob gear has a 5x higher chance of rolling this ability.
The Ink Saver (Sub) ability decreases the ink usage of sub weapons by up to 75% of their normal usage. Ink Saver (Sub) lets players deploy Burst Bombs with greater frequency and little delay to refill ink. Firefin gear has a 5x higher chance of rolling this ability.
The Bomb Range Up ability allows players to throw Splat Bombs, Burst Bombs, Suction Bombs, Point Sensors, and Disruptors up to 50% farther. This ability encourages frequent use of the Splattershot's sub weapon, the Burst Bomb, which can splat enemies in two hits when hitting directly. With Bomb Range Up, players using the Splattershot can take out opponents from a safe distance. No brand increases the chance of rolling this ability.
The Damage Up ability increases the power of burst bombs. With just 3 Damage Up ability just one burst bomb and one shot kills a player with no Defence Up ability. Squidforce is 5x more likely to roll this ability.
The Jungle Hat(NA) (Safari Hat(EU/OC)) comes with Ink Saver (Main) as a main ability. Because it is produced by Firefin, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) as a secondary ability. These abilities allow Splattershot users to continuously spray ink and throw Burst Bombs without wasting as much time to wait for ink to refill.
The Rockenberg Black comes with Damage Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by Rockenberg, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Run Speed Up as a secondary ability. This combination allows players to take advantage of the Splattershot's unique capabilities such as being able to move around faster as well as giving more power to a Burst Bomb.
The Layered Anchor LS comes with Run Speed Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by SquidForce, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Damage Up as a secondary ability. This is an alternative to the Rockenberg Black if you can not find it.
The Shark Moccasins comes with Bomb Range Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by Splash Mob, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) as a secondary ability. This combination allows players to take advantage of the Splattershot's unique capabilities and the Burst Bomb's power.

Upon defeating DJ Octavio using the Kraken, the Inkling Squid will award the player with cash and the blueprints for the Hero Shot, created by Ammoses Shellendorf, Sheldon's grandfather. Upon entering Ammo Knights, Sheldon will inform the player that although he cannot replicate the original technology, he can recreate it in design.
- The Splattershot, the Hero Shot Replica, and the Refurbished Mini Splatling are the only weapons with the Burst Bomb Rush.
