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, and some players such as Kyo consider the weapon to just be plain bad. On the other hand, some players such as Chara finds the weapon to be situational, but fine as is and difficult to learn. Further worsening the opinions on the Splatana Wiper were likely because of apparent nerfs to Ultra Stamp hitboxes. 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.
