  • While Main Power Up increases the number of shots fired, it does not increase ink consumption relative to the amount charged, making the weapon comparatively more ink efficient.


  • The Kensa Mini Splatling is a middleweight weapon.
  • The full charge ink consumption of 17.25% allows players to fully charge 5 times before needing to refill the ink tank.
  • When charging the weapon, it will take 20 frames in order to charge its first ring and 30 frames in total for a full charge.
  • With a single ring charged, it will have a firing duration of 36 frames. With a full charge, it will have a firing duration of 72 frames.
  • When firing, it has a fire rate of 4 frames between shots.
  • When firing, the player's movement speed is set to 0.8 units per frame.
    • When charging, the player's movement speed is set to 0.7 units per frame.
  • After firing, there is a 30 frame cooldown before the ink tank starts refilling.
  • If a shot is in the air for more than 11 frames after being fired, it loses 2 damage per frame until it reaches 16 damage at frame 19.
  • Shots have a radius of 2 units.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 4 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 8 degrees.
  • The outer reticle immediately expands after jumping. After 25 frames, the outer reticle will start shrinking, and will finish shrinking after 70 frames.
  • The Kensa Mini Splatling has a 0.3% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 0.3%.
  • The shot's velocity is set to 11.05 units, and decreases further as it falls to the ground.
  • Ink droplets occur every 100 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.6 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 5 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.
  • Droplets that occur within 10 units of the player have a radius of 19 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 18 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12.6 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1 if they fell from a height below 30 units.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Kensa Mini Splatling is a limited-edition Mini Splatling created in collaboration with Toni Kensa!
Use the Toxic Mist sub to hem in the movement of your foes, then chase them down with your main!
In close quarters, bring opponents up short with your sub, then flatten their dreams with a hammer blow from your Ultra Stamp!
This set is for those who use every tool available to get the job done, and would never think of neglecting their precious sub weapon!




  • While not usually apparent on other splatlings, the hair-clip on the barrel clearly demonstrates that splatling barrels do not have fixed resting positions.
  • The Kensa Mini Splatling looks nearly identical to the Refurbished Mini Splatling other than the fact that the details are black instead of orange.
