A team of Inklings wielding a variety of weapons.
As an Inkling, you can use weapons and ink your turf. Be sure to experiment with different weapon sets!
— Splatoon official site

Weapons are tools used in Splatoon to spread ink and splatter enemy Inklings. They can be purchased from Ammo Knights with Cash earned from online multiplayer matches. Weapons are always in a predefined set of a Main Weapon, a Sub Weapon, and a Special Weapon. Sub Weapons, or secondary weapons, consume considerably more ink than Main Weapons and usually serve specialized purposes limited to specific combat situations. Special Weapons are powerful weapons that can only be used after filling up the Special Gauge by covering enough ground with ink.

Main

All weapons have two versions: the original, and an alternate with a different Sub and Special Weapon setup and a slightly different appearance. With the addition of Sheldon's Picks, some weapons gained a third version with yet another set of Sub and Special Weapons.

Shooter

A Shooter in action.

Shooters

Blasters

Blasters are an unofficial Sub Class of Shooters that fire large, slow globs of Ink that explode in mid-air. While they are poor at Inking turf, they excel at splatting enemies. As a result, Blaster users may struggle with Turf Wars, but can be very valuable in Ranked Battles. They are especially good at Tower Control, being able to simply pummel the tower from up close with their wide blast radius.

Charger

Aiming a Charger.

Roller

Spreading Ink with a Roller.

Rollers

Brushes

Brushes are an unofficial subclass of Rollers. They are characteristically much faster and more mobile than conventional rollers, but do not do nearly as much in the way of contact damage, making squishing enemies virtually impossible. However, instead of flinging Ink, Brushes quickly swipe from side to side, flicking many smaller globs. This rapid-fire flick is their primary means of spreading Ink and attacking enemies, making them ideal for fast, close-combat action.

  • The Inkbrush Series
    • Weapont Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush – An extremely fast Brush. When pushing it along the ground, it has a very narrow coverage and is quite weak, but it greatly increases the user's speed. It also has an incredibly fast flick, but the range is quite short. It comes with Sprinklers and the Inkstrike.
  • The Octobrush Series
    • Weapont Main Octobrush.png Octobrush – Something of a compromise compared to the Inkbrush. It lacks the extremely high running and flicking speed, but has better range, Ink coverage, and damage output. It comes in a set with Squid Beakons and the Kraken.

Slosher

Flinging Ink from a Slosher.

Splatling

A Splatling firing.

Classes

Sub Classes are a way to distinguish different weapons of one weapon type. For example the Aerospray RG and the Dual Squelcher are both considered Shooter weapons but differ in many ways. A more explicit example would be the Splat Roller compared to the Inkbrush. Those are both considered Rollers, although the Inkbrush is far from being a Roller. These Sub Classes are not officially recognized in-game, but since they have noticeably different playstyles, they are worth unofficially recognizing. Thus, this section shows all types of Sub Classes existing in the game so far.

Sub

The Sprinkler, Splash Wall, and Splat Bomb.
  • Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bomb - The Burst Bomb is a water balloon-esque bomb that explodes on impact. Because it contains less ink than a Splat Bomb, multiple can be thrown quickly and two must be used in order to splat an opponent.
  • Weapon Sub Disruptor.png Disruptor - The Disruptor slows enemies down and lowers their abilities.
  • Weapon Sub Ink Mine.png Ink Mine - The Ink Mine can be hidden in ink, and will explode after a short amount of time or when an enemy touches it.
  • Weapon Sub Point Sensor.png Point Sensor - The Point Sensor reveals the locations of enemies and marks them for all teammates to see for easy tracking.
  • Weapon Sub Seeker.png Seeker - The Seeker is a mechanical device that follows enemies and leaves a trail of ink behind. Upon reaching its target or after a certain amount of time, it explodes into a large burst of ink.
  • Weapon Sub Splash Wall.png Splash Wall - The Splash Wall forms a barrier made of falling ink that prevents enemy movement and fire.
  • Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bomb - The Splat Bomb is the standard Sub Weapon. It is a pyramidal container filled with ink that explodes after a short period of time.
  • Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler - The Sprinkler can be thrown onto a variety of surfaces and sprays out spurts of ink in a circular motion for a short amount of time.
  • Weapon Sub Squid Beakon.png Squid Beakon - The Squid Beakon is a device that allows teammates to Super Jump directly to its location.
  • Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bomb - The Suction Bomb sticks to walls and other surfaces, exploding shortly after.

Special

The Killer Wail, Inkzooka, and Inkstrike.
  • Weapon Special Bomb Rush Splat Bomb.png Bomb Rush - The Bomb Rush allows the player to use their Sub Weapon with no Ink restriction for a short time.
  • Weapon Special Bubbler.png Bubbler - The Bubbler is a spherical force field that rebounds enemy attacks and can be spread to teammates. It is available for a short amount of time.
  • Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator - The Echolocator reveals the locations of all enemies for teammates to see on the field and on the Wiiu-gamepad-icon.png map. It is available normally for twelve seconds.
  • Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike - The Inkstrike can be placed using Wiiu-gamepad-icon.png and causes a large, swirling vortex of ink to appear.
  • Weapon Special Inkzooka.png Inkzooka - The Inkzooka shoots tall, narrow twisters of ink in rapid succession, allowing for quick placement of linear paths and splatting of enemies.
  • Weapon Special Killer Wail.png Killer Wail - The Killer Wail blasts a large sound wave in a certain direction that obliterates all enemies in its path and travels through walls.
  • Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken - The Kraken allows Inklings to temporarily transform into large, invincible, kraken-like creatures with enhanced mobility and power.

List of Weapon Sets

In Splatoon, each weapon comes as a predefined set. For example, the standard Splat Roller comes with the Suction Bomb and the Killer Wail as its sub and special weapons, respectively. It is impossible to have a Splat Roller with Seekers and the Inkstrike, as there is no predefined set for the Splat Roller that includes them.

However, there are alternates of every set. An example of this is the Krak-On Splat Roller, which uses the Squid Beakon and Kraken rather than the Suction Bomb and Killer Wail that the classic Splat Roller sports.
