The Kelp Splatterscope is a Main Weapon in Splatoon.


The Kelp Splatterscope, similar to the Splatterscope and Kelp Splat Charger, is a type of charger, and it contains a scope for more precise aiming. Like all chargers, it can be charged to fire ink at long distances. It comes in a set with the Sprinkler and Killer Wail.

A Splatterscope Sheldon modified in the same way as the Kelp Splat Charger—by sticking seaweed to it. Naturally, it also has a Sprinkler.
— In-Game Description
Sheldon's Introduction
The Kelp Splatterscope is a Kelp Splat Charger with an added scope for long-distance aiming.

It's great for hitting far-off targets, but your view is narrow while charging, so careful where you use it!



The Kelp Splatterscope has the same stats the Kelp Splat Charger. The addition of a scope allows for greater precision when engaging targets at close range. But don’t get tunnel vision. Identify targets in the third-person view before peering through the scope to take a shot. If you spend too much time peering through the magnified scope, you’re likely to be flanked and splatted from behind.

Update history


  • Special gauge loss: 50% → up to 60%
  • Range when not fully charged adjusted to match that of the Splat Charger.
  • Range when fully charged increased by about 4%.

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 Splatterscope 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.
