The Splat Charger, like other charger-type weapons, can be charged up before firing. The more it is charged, the farther the ink will go and the more damage it will deal. Only a fully charged shot will splat an enemy in one hit. It also creates a thick line of ink, rather than many small blobs like shooter-class weapons do. This weapon is the most basic form of charger in the Splatoon series, with all-around average performance. The weapon consumes 18% of the ink-tank capacity with each fully charged shot, allowing the player to fire 5 shots before needing to refill the tank.

The Splat Charger returns for Splatoon 2 with a new visual design and a new charge-holding mechanic. The player can now charge up a shot, go into squid form and move as they please for a brief period of time, and fire the weapon once without having to charge it up. While submerged in ink with a charged shot, the player's location glows. It comes in a set with Splat Bombs and the Sting Ray.

The Splat Charger in Splatoon 2 looks slightly similar to the real-life rifle M24 Sniper Weapon System, an iconic weapon and the standard for many armies and special forces around the world. However, the M24 has a scope mounted while the Splat Charger does not.
