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.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Aerospray PG is a little update to the S Weapon Main Aerospray MG.png Aerospray MG that I built from my grandpappy's blueprints. It's a hand-crafted work of art, if I do say so myself. I really put a lot of love into it! The S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs let you control your opponents' movements before smashing them with the S Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken. Rated PG for severe splattings! (NA/EU/OC)[a]

An S Weapon Main Aerospray MG.png Aerospray MG remodeled by Sheldon. This set builds on the natural strengths of the weapon. The main and S Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs help claim turf and the S Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken crushes enemy defenses.

  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 150 units of the player have a radius of 17.8 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12 units.

  • If no ink droplets have occurred within 21 units of the player for 4 shots, the next shot the player makes will force a paint droplet to appear at the player's feet.

Trivia

  • The Aerospray PG appears to be designed after an aerograph, a type of airbrush.
  • The Aerospray PG, along with its alternates, the Aerospray MG and Aerospray RG and the Inkbrush, Inkbrush Nouveau and 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.
  • Damage Up can prove useful on this weapon. With a full set, the player will need to land a direct hit with a Burst Bomb followed by one hit instead of two.
