The E-liter 4K Scope is a main weapon in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. It is the scoped version of the E-liter 4K. Although it cannot store a charge like most unscoped chargers, it has the longest range.


The E-liter 4K Scope is nearly identical in appearance to the E-liter 4K. The only difference between the two is that the E-liter 4K Scope has a scope attached to the the gas pump handle and the back end of the barrel.

The E-liter 4K Scope comes with Ink Mines and Ink Storm.

It appears in three Octo Expansion Stations:


  • The E-liter 4K Scope is a heavyweight weapon.
  • The matchmaking range is 330. Splatoon 2 matchmaking looks at a team's average matchmaking range value, and matches them against a team with a similar average.
  • Ink consumption scales from 2.25% to 25% depending on the charge level.
    • The full-charge ink consumption of 25% allows players to fire 4 shots before needing to refill the ink supply.
    • This stat can be changed with Ink Saver (Main).
  • The scoped view begins to appear at 50% charge and becomes fully zoomed in at 100% charge.
  • The scope limits the y-axis field of view to 20 degrees.
  • The E-liter 4K Scope cannot store its charge.
  • It takes 1.53 seconds to fully charge the weapon.
    • When charging a shot with an empty tank, the charge rate is 33.33%, permitting the player to fully charge a shot in 4.6 seconds.
    • When charging a shot while in the air, the charge rate is 33.33%, permitting the player to fully charge a shot in 4.6 seconds.
  • Fully charged shots will pierce opponents.
  • When charging while moving, the player's movement speed is set to 0.15 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 20 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • Damage scales from 40 to 80 depending on the charge level. At full charge, the damage is 180.
  • Shot velocity scales from 24 to 64 depending on the charge level. At full charge, the velocity is 96.
  • Shot distance scales from 90 to 291 depending on the charge level. At full charge, the distance is 311.


Differences from the E-liter 3K Scope

  • Time taken to fully charge is 2/60 seconds faster.
  • Fully-charged ink consumption: 30% → 25%.
  • Movement speed while not charging or firing is reduced by 8.3%
  • Range is decreased by about 17%.
    • Max range: 374 units → 310.5 units.
  • Maximum damage without full charge: 100 → 80.
  • There is a glow while charging and gets brighter the more the weapon is charged, increasing visibility for opponents.

Sheldon's Introduction

The E-liter 4K Scope delivers the long-range action of the 4K model with a scope for added accuracy! Though it boasts a shot range that beats almost every other charger, you'll want to be extra aware of your surroundings when scoping in. Also, the scoped configuration won't let you store a charged shot, so keep that in mind as you adjust to the feel of using a scope. Like the standard 4K, you'll get Ink Mines and the Ink Storm to help cover the battlefield while you zoom in and splat unsuspecting foes!
