The Aerospray PG is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. The Aerospray PG fires quick bursts, so its user can cover a relatively large area with ink in a short time. It is also a short-range weapon, so it will make quick work of nearby targets.

Trivia

  • The Aerospray PG appears to be designed after an aerograph, a type of airbrush.
  • The Aerospray PG, along with its alternates, the S Weapon Main Aerospray MG.png Aerospray MG and S Weapon Main Aerospray RG.png Aerospray RG and the S2 Weapon Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush, S2 Weapon Main Inkbrush Nouveau.png Inkbrush Nouveau and S2 Weapon Main Permanent Inkbrush.png Permanent Inkbrush, are the only weapons that require 5 hits in order to splat an opponent.
  • The "PG" in this weapon's name likely stands for "Perfect Grade", referencing Bandai's line of 1:60 scale model kits for the anime Mobile Suit Gundam.
    • This is because it is common for model kits to be painted with an airbrush and because Gundam models are extremely popular in Japan.
  • S Ability Damage Up.png Damage Up can prove useful on this weapon. With a full set, the player will need to land a direct hit with a S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bomb followed by one hit instead of two.
