A promotional image for Splatoon 3 featuring a Inkling wielding the Splatana Wiper, a weapon included in the Splatana class.

Splatanas are one of the main weapon types in Splatoon 3.

Splatanas are sword-like weapons that send blades of ink flying with each swing of the weapon, which is done by pressing the button. Swings after holding the button would become a charged slash. Regular slashes fire a horizontal projectile, while charged slashes use a vertical one.

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

List of splatanas

Note: The series are arranged by the order of their respective Tableturf Battle cards.

S3 Weapon Main Splatana Stamper.png
Splatana Stamper
A heavier Splatana compared to the standard. It has a slower rate of fire, but its ink projectiles are wider, travel further, and deal more damage. S3 Weapon Main Splatana Stamper.png Splatana Stamper
S3 Weapon Main Splatana Wiper.png
Splatana Wiper
The standard Splatana. When the button is tapped, it performs a quick slash that fires a fast-moving ink-trailing projectile. When charged up, it performs a stronger vertical slash. If the charge is released while moving forward, the user will lunge forward a short distance before firing. S3 Weapon Main Splatana Wiper.png Splatana Wiper

  • Flip Out and Reppin' Inkopolis: Jumps and slams the weapon into the ground point-first, then lands and leans against it with their arms and legs folded.


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!
