The Hero Shot is a futuristic weapon with a black and lime green color scheme and many glowing lights that leave a small trail as Agent 3 moves. It is used exclusively in the Octo Valley single-player and the Inkling Squid amiibo challenges. It behaves similarly to the Splattershot, with decent range, accuracy, fire rate, and damage. It is the only weapon in the game with multiple switchable sub weapons, using Splat Bombs, Burst Bombs and Seekers, but only the Splat Bombs are usable during the amiibo challenges. Its fire rate can be upgraded with Power Eggs found in Octo Valley missions. Beating all amiibo missions unlocks the Hero Shot Replica for purchase at Ammo Knights.

  • No upgrades: Blue lights
  • One upgrade: Purple lights
  • Two upgrades: Yellow lights
  • Three upgrades: Green lights

These upgrades have no effect during the amiibo challenges.

The Hero Shot in Splatoon 2 is majorly redesigned and it is based on the real-life FN P90, the design that bears little resemblance to the original or the Splattershot. It now comes with switchable sub weapons of Splat Bombs, Curling Bombs and Autobombs, although every other Hero weapon also has these. It is now only upgradable twice, while the other Hero weapons can be upgraded once. Completing all missions in Octo Canyon with this weapon unlocks the Hero Shot Replica for purchase from Ammo Knights.

  • Lv. 1: Primarily yellow
  • Lv. 2: Primarily orange with an extra handle and an attachment near the nozzle. Requires 800 Power Eggs and two Sardinium. Increases fire rate. Watch your ink consumption!
  • Lv. 3: Primarily yellow again, with an extra attachment at the back of the gun. Requires 1500 Power Eggs and three Sardinium. Increases fire rate. Watch your ink consumption!

Hero Shot Replica

Main article: Hero Shot Replica

The Hero Shot Replica is a reward in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 unlocked through various means. It is a shooter-type main weapon and is visually identical to the Hero Shot. Despite its unique appearance, it is simply a reskin of the Splattershot from that game, sharing the same stats and loadout, sub weapon and special weapon, and upgrades purchases through the Ammo Knights Enhancifier will not affect it.

Trivia

  • The Level 3 Hero Shot (and its replica) in Splatoon 2 resembles a real-life FN P90.
  • The Hero Shot in Splatoon 2 is the only Hero weapon to not have a red accent when fully upgraded.
  • In the Octo Expansion, Agent 3 uses a Hero Shot, presumably the same one used in Octo Valley, with the original design from the first game instead of the new design. However, it is implied that they have modified it since as it functions very differently than before. However, it has blue lights, signifying it is not upgraded.
