Firefin Splat Charger

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Firefin Splat Charger is a main weapon in Splatoon 2. It is a Firefin-branded variant of the Splat Charger and an unscoped variant of the Firefin Splatterscope.

In Splatoon 3, following Firefin's merger with Zekko to form Z+F, this weapon is succeeded by Z+F Splat Charger in that game.


The Firefin Splat Charger is nearly identical in appearance to the Splat Charger. The only difference between the two is that the sight on the end of the Splat Charger's barrel is replaced with a 3D version of the Firefin logo and the ink tank seal is yellow and has a different shape.
