Kensa Splatterscope

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Kensa Splatterscope is a main weapon in Splatoon 2. It is a Toni Kensa-branded variant of the Splatterscope and a scoped variant of the Kensa Charger.


The Kensa Splatterscope is a black-and-white Splatterscope with the Toni Kensa signature red clothespin attached to the grip under the barrel. Unlike the Splatterscope and the Firefin Splatterscope, the ink reservoir of the Kensa Splattershot does not change with the user's ink color and is always white.

It also retains the white barrel of the Kensa Charger, differing in the reservoir color (where the Splatterscope and Firefin Splatterscope have a different barrel colors from their non-scoped versions).
