The Dual Squelcher is a main weapon in Splatoon, created by Custom. In Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3, it was converted into Dualie Squelchers.

It is similar to the Jet Squelcher, but has a higher fire rate at the cost of range and power. The fire rate is faster than the Splattershot Pro and slower than the Splash-o-matic.


The Dual Squelcher is similar in appearance to the Jet Squelcher. However, the Dual Squelcher is red and has a second barrel attached to the bottom. This barrel is nonfunctional in-game.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Dual Squelcher adds a manifold mechanism to the Jet Squelcher for extreme range and firing rate. Claim turf, fire out those Echolocators, and then attack the opponents' position with Splat Bombs! So I'd recommend it if those kinds of tricksy tactics happen to be your style!

A double-barreled Jet Squelcher with a much higher rate of fire. The power of each shot is low, but the ample range and firing rate make up for it.
— In-Game Description
Compared to the Jet Squelcher, the Dual Squelcher has a little less range, but makes up for it with a slightly faster fire rate. The Dual Squelcher comes with Splat Bombs and Echolocator. This is really nice for supporting your teammates and giving them cover fire. Selecting the Ink Saver (Sub) ability over Ink Saver (Main) is best due to the amount of ink the Splat Bomb needs. Another ability to strive for is Bomb Range Up, so you can throw those Splat Bombs at a greater distance, eschewing the need to get close to your opponents.
Splatoon Prima Guide




  • Not counting the transition from E-liter 3K to E-liter 4K, the Dual Squelcher is the only main weapon to not return in Splatoon 2. Instead, it was mechanically changed and converted into the Dualie Squelchers.
  • The Dual Squelcher only fires through the top barrel. The bottom barrel is simply cosmetic.
  • There is an unused model and weapon parameters for the Dual Squelcher in Splatoon 2, but it was replaced by the Dualie Squelchers.
  • The Splattershot Nova, a new main weapon in Splatoon 3, is statistically similar to the Dual Squelcher. Both weapons have long range and a faster firing rate than the Splattershot Pro, but weaker damage. They also share the codename of "QuickLong".
