The Tri-Stringer is one of the newly introduced weapons in Splatoon 3, offering a different playstyle almost similar to that of a charger. Unlike other covential charger-type weapons, it has the ability to shoot explosive rounds of ink from charging its shots. Its kit allows it to trap enemies and deny space using Toxic Mist, as well as displace opponents with the Killer Wail 5.1.
