Contrary to its appearance and name, the Splatana Wiper is not a melee weapon. Instead, its playstyle is centered around mid-range poking with its slash attacks and Torpedoes, while having the close-range one hit splat from the charged slash as a backup for opponents who get too close.

In competitive play

First impressions of the Splatana Wiper from competitive players following the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere were mixed. For example, competitive veteran Sendou considers the weapon to be outclassed,[1] and some players such as Kyo consider the weapon to just be plain bad.[2] On the other hand, some players such as Chara finds the weapon to be situational, but fine as is and difficult to learn.[3][4] Further worsening the opinions on the Splatana Wiper were likely because of apparent nerfs to Ultra Stamp hitboxes.[5] Due to the game currently being unreleased, its true potential has yet to be seen, though some players like Arashi, a former member of Prophecy, seems to have taken a liking to the weapon and may push it forward in the future.[6]
