The Kelp Splat Charger is a Main Weapon in Splatoon.


The Kelp Splat Charger is in a set with the Sprinkler and Killer Wail. Unlike most weapons, it can be charged. The more it is charged, the farther the ink will go. It also creates a thick line of ink, rather than a blob. This weapon is a type of Charger weapon in Splatoon.

A Splat Charger modified by Sheldon using some seaweed that was stuck to the blueprints. Maybe the Sprinkler sub weapon is meant to keep the seaweed fresh?

Sheldon's Introduction
I created the Kelp Splat Charger' based on my grandpappy's blueprints. Cool seaweed design, right?

Though, if I'm honest, it's exactly the same as the Splat Charger in stats.

But this set comes with the Sprinkler to ink hard-to-reach locations while you hold a strategic position!

And the Killer Wail will blow all of your opponents away! Use it well to turn the tide of battle!



Statistically, this weapon is nearly identical to the Splat Charger. But the Sprinkler/Killer Wail duo promote a more reserved approach. The Killer Wail special is very powerful when aimed down narrow corridors. Consider using the Special Charge Up ability to use Killer Wail with greater frequency.

Recommended Abilities

The Cold Blooded ability reduces the duration of tracking by Point Sensors, Haunt, and Echolocators by 75%. Cold Blooded allows players to be unpredictable in positioning, win sniper duels and prevent quick splats by enemy snipers

The Ink Recovery Up ability hastens the refill rate of ink. Once used up, the Kelp Splat Charger has to stay in ink for a substantial amount of time before having the ability to continue making shots. This ability enables players to have constant and more long term map presence and have both main and sub weapons frequently at hand. Tentatek gear has a 5x higher chance of rolling this ability.

Maneuvering with chargers can be difficult, especially if enemies are advancing. Use Swim Speed Up to make a quick escape and increase mobility in squid form.
