  • The matchmaking range is 16. The game's matchmaking system looks at a team's average matchmaking range value, and matches them against a team with a similar average.

  • When firing continuously, it shoots a bullet every 6 frames (10 shots per second).
  • When firing from humanoid form, the first shot takes 3 frames to come out. When firing from swim form, the first shot takes 11 frames to come out.
  • The interval between firing the weapon and being able to enter swim form or use a sub weapon is 3 frames.
  • When firing while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.079 units per frame.
  • Each shot has a base damage of 24 and minimum damage of 12.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 10 frames after being fired, it will lose about 0.75 damage per frame until it reaches 12 damage at frame 26.
  • The bullet hitbox for collisions with players has a radius of 0.2 units.
  • The bullet hitbox for collisions with the environment has a radius of 0.2 units.

    • This chance increases by 3% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle, meaning that it takes 5 shots to reach minimum accuracy.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.
  • Accuracy starts recovering 6 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 2% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 14 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (21 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 2.2 units per frame for 5 frames. Shots travel straight for 11 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 2.2698 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and it loses 36% of its speed every frame (including the first frame after it stops traveling straight). Once the shot velocity decreases below a certain threshold, it will begin to be slowed less and fall faster.
  • The effective range is about 14.49 units.
    • This number may vary at different firing angles.

  • Along with the Big Swig Roller Express, the Annaki Splattershot Nova is the only weapon made by the Splat brand that has the actual name of the brand it was created with in almost every translation of the game instead of suffixes meaning "logo" or "branded" like the other Splat weapons.
