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 will cause the Heavy Splatling to fire for 1.2 seconds, while reaching the second level will cause it to fire for 2.4 seconds. Each ink bullet does enough damage to splat opponents with four hits.
