Compared to the basic Splat Roller, the Carbon Roller is the lighter and more mobile roller. It has an incredibly fast flick that still splats opponents in one hit. However, its attack power and range is weaker, and it is unable to squish Inklings in one hit.
Each flick consumes 3.5% of the ink tank capacity, allowing players to fling 28 times before needing to refill.

The Carbon Roller is much faster than almost any other Roller in the game, and is very ink-efficient, allowing you to cover large amounts of turf quickly. This is slightly impaired by the fact that it will cover a little bit less surface area than most Rollers, even though it’s very quick. It is very useful to cover ground quickly, but is lacking in middle-to long range combat.
The Carbon Roller is a lightweight roller built using low-density parts for increased handling! You can't fling a whole lot of ink with this one, so use an Autobomb to check if the area's safe before you ink ahead! A well-placed Ink Storm over an enemy's hiding place will send them running. Little do they know that you're waiting to splat them!
