Promotional image of the Splatana weapon class.

Splatana is one of the main weapon types in Splatoon 3.

Splatanas are sword-like weapons that send blazes of ink flying with each swing of the weapon, which is done by pressing the ZR button. Swings after holding the button would become a charged splash.

The Splatana class was first announced in the Splatoon 3 Direct.

SRL back and fully recovered from our wild day of tweeting with new research on splatana-type weapons. These swordlike implements can fire a horizontal slash of ink quickly or charge up to fire a powerful vertical blast. You can use both moves to slice and dice the competition!
