Agent 3 holding the Hero Shot.

The Hero Shot is a Shooter only usable by Agent 3 in Splatoon's single-player game mode Octo Valley and the Inkling Squid amiibo.


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 behaves similarly to the Splattershot, with decent range, accuracy, fire rate, and damage. It's the only weapon in the game with multiple switchable sub weapons, Splat Bombs, Burst Bombs and Seekers, however only the Splat bombs are usable during the Inking Squid amiibo challenges. Its fire rate can be upgraded with Power Eggs found in Octo Valley missions. Upon doing so, the lights will change color:

  • 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.

Hero Shot Replica

Main article: Hero Shot Replica

The Hero Shot Replica is a reward from the final Inkling Squid amiibo challenge. It is a Shooter-type Main Weapon and is visually identical to a Hero Shot with no upgrades. Despite its unique appearance, it is simply a reskin of the Splattershot, sharing the same stats and loadout, with Burst Bombs as its Sub and Bomb Rush as its Special.
