Firefin Splatterscope

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

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

In Splatoon 3, following Firefin's merger with Zekko to form Z+F, this weapon is succeeded by the Z+F Splatterscope.


The Firefin Splatterscope is nearly identical in appearance to the Firefin Splat Charger. The only difference between the two is that the Firefin Splatterscope has a scope attached to the back end of the barrel.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Firefin Splatterscope resembles Firefin Splat Charger but adds a scope for keeping a better eye on distant opponents. However! Remember that using the scope will limit your field of view and also prevent you from storing your charge. Get busy with the Splash Wall and Suction-Bomb Launcher it comes with, and you'll be viewing the world through a whole new lens.
