The Heavy Splatling appears to be a powerful weapon, capable of firing many small blasts of ink at once with damage equivalent to the Dual Squelcher, high range (about that of a Jet Squelcher), and a fast rate of fire. The sub is a Splash Wall and special is an Inkstrike.

— 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 Splash Wall! This bad boy also comes with the Inkzooka 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!||”|
Hold 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.
