The Ink Saver (Main) ability decreases ink usage of the main weapon by a maximum of 45%. Splash Mob gear has a 5x chance of rolling this ability.

Use

Generally, the ability is great in Turf War, allowing the player to ink with fewer interruptions, and to fight another player without running out of ink. For example, the Splattershot Jr. can fire continuously for 30 seconds with maximum Ink Saver (Main), up from 17 seconds. In Ranked Battles, a player may want to use Ink Saver (Main) with Ink Saver (Sub) to make aggressive use of both the main weapon and sub weapon without running out of ink.

The ability is also useful when using roller-based weapons, as it increases the distance the player can roll before needing to refill their Ink Tank.

The ability is particularly helpful for the most ink-hungry weapons in the game: the Splattershot Pro, the E-liter 3K, and the Dynamo Roller.
