Heavy Splatling

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Heavy Splatling is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

The Heavy Splatling is capable of firing bursts of ink with high range, low damage, and a fast rate of fire. Each fully-charged attack consumes 22.5% of the ink tank capacity, allowing players to fire off four full charges before needing to refill. It takes approximately 0.83 seconds to reach the first level of charge and 1.25 seconds in total to reach the second level of charge. Reaching the first level of charge causes the Heavy Splatling to fire for 1.2 seconds while reaching the second level causes it to fire for 2.4 seconds. Each ink bullet does enough damage to splat opponents with four hits.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Heavy Splatling is kind of similar to a charger, but it belongs to a whole new weapon class! Hold Button1 ZR.png to pressurize the ink, and then release it to splatterize your foes like DAKKADAKKADAKKADAKKA!! But it uses a lot of ink and takes a while to charge, so this weapon can leave you exposed. Using the S Weapon Sub Splash Wall.png Splash Wall to impede your foes before unleashing an S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike can be rather effective!(NA)[a]

Charge it up and let 'em have it with all six barrels! A maximum charge will unleash the full rapid-fire potential of this weapon.
— In-Game Description
This baby packs six barrels full of ink. Charge it up and let your enemies have it! Need some cover? Not a problem. Throw down your S Weapon Sub Splash Wall.png Splash Wall! This bad boy also comes with the Inkzooka S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike (Sorry squidfriends, I am too excited to read properly) as a special weapon. It might just be the best weapon for squids that have watched too many 80's action movies!

The Heavy Splatling returns in Splatoon 2 with a new design, the main difference being a tilted barrel and it is primarily yellow instead of orange.[1] It comes with Sprinklers and the Sting Ray, similar to the build of the Heavy Splatling Remix in Splatoon.

  • While Main Power Up increases the number of shots fired, it does not increase the ink consumption relative to the amount charged, making the weapon comparatively more ink efficient.

Sheldon's Introduction

The mechanics of the Heavy Splatling are similar to those of a charger, but it's in a weapon class of its own! Hold down Button1 ZR.png to compress your ink, and then release Button1 ZR.png to unleash a fat stream of ink! Each charge uses a huge amount of ink, and charging it leaves you exposed for a while. If you use the S2 Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinkler well, you can keep a route open as you prepare to deal a death blow with the S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray! This Splatling cannon's power will make even charger users jealous!
