Scrappers are Boss Salmonids that appear in Salmon Run in Splatoon 2 and Salmon Run Next Wave in Splatoon 3.


Scrappers move slowly, but leave behind a large trail of ink. The only way to splat a Scrapper is to shoot its tail, which is located behind it. Dealing 600 damage to the shield with stun it, exposing it's tail for roughly 5 seconds. Players should use this time to splat the Scrapper. If one player shoots the Scrapper, it will stop moving and face its shield against this player, allowing other players to attack from behind.

If the player shoots the Scrapper but does not stun it, it will take around two seconds from the last shot before it starts moving again. If the player stuns it but does not splat it, it will take around five seconds before its shield is repaired and it starts moving again.


The following text is quoted from the Salmonid Field Guide.

Basic Information
  • Protected against almost all ink damage by their shields.
  • Their ability to turn rapidly allows them to keep their shields facing their target.
Attack Behavior
  • The protection afforded by their shields allows them to charge forwards.
  • Sustained ink attacks will damage their shields and bring them to a standstill.
  • Once the Scrapper is immobilized, move round behind it to fire through the chink in its armor and take it out.
Supporting Information
  • The Scrapper's vehicle is a much-desired item for many Salmonids.
  • The shields are made from odds and ends of scrap metal.
  • If the shields are broken, the Scrapper will have to stop in order to make repairs.

  • Scrappers move much faster than than other bosses, allowing them to be lured to the basket much easier than other Boss Salmonids.
  • The Sting Ray, Killer Wail 5.1, Grizzco Slosher, and Grizzco Splatana ignore Scrappers' armor.
  • Scrappers target the player that last shot them. This can be used to redirect scrappers toward the basket if they're following someone further away from it.
  • Players who are targeted can turn around the scrapper quickly so crewmates can kill it without having to immobilize it first.
