Bamboozler 14 Mk I
The Bamboozler 14 Mk I has an extremely high charge rate, the highest of the chargers, allowing shots to be fired off in quick succession. It also has decent range and mobility. However, while it is the quickest charger, it is also the weakest; it cannot splat an enemy in one hit, even when fully charged. However, unlike other chargers, the range remains constant regardless of its charge.
The Bamboozler consumes 7% of the ink tank with each fully charged shot, allowing users to fire fourteen shots before needing to refill.

- The Bamboozler 14 Mk I is a modernized version of the Bamboozler used in the Great Turf War.
- Cap'n Cuttlefish uses an old Bamboozler as a cane.
- The Bamboozler 14 can fire fourteen shots before the user needs to refill their ink supply.
- The Bamboozler has the quickest charge for any charger in the game, excluding the Grizzco Charger.
- The Bamboozler is the only charger that cannot one-hit kill at full charge.
- The Bamboozler cannot hold its charge like every other un-scoped charger can, even though it does not have a scope.
- With a full set of Damage Up in Splatoon, or three mains and four subs of Main Power Up in Splatoon 2, this weapon will be able to reach 99.9 damage with only about 5/6 of a charge, or at full charge, respectively. Since the range is the same no matter the charge, this can prove useful, since if an enemy steps in the player's ink, they can be splatted with only one shot.
