The Hero Splatling Replica is a main weapon in 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.

The Hero Splatling Replica is visually identical to the Level 1 Hero Splatling but is simply a re-skinned Heavy Splatling. Therefore, unlike the switchable sub weapons of the Hero Splatling, it comes with Sprinklers and the Sting Ray. To unlock the Hero Splatling Replica, the player must complete every level with the Hero Splatling in Octo Canyon, at which point it becomes available for purchase at Ammo Knights.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Hero Splatling Replica is a custom design of the standard S2 Weapon Main Heavy Splatling.png Heavy Splatling model with the same stats and setup. I'd been carrying out extensive tests and had finally created a weapon with stats worthy of something truly legendary... Sadly, I couldn't get approval for mass production as the guys down there couldn't wrap their heads around my advanced schematics... So I slapped some leftover parts on a S2 Weapon Main Heavy Splatling.png Heavy Splatling and here we are! Looks pretty awesome, huh?





Hero Splatling Replica is derived from the noun Hero, a portmanteau of Splat and Gatling and the noun Replica.

ヒーロースピナー レプリカ hīrō supinā repurika is derived from Spinner. The name Spinner is due to the fact that the barrels of the Hero Splatling Replica rotate while charging and firing.
