The Splatana Wiper resembles a car windshield wiper with what appears to be a long yellow sponge as the "blade" and a hilt of a badminton racket.
The Splatana Wiper was revealed in the Splatoon 3 Direct on 10 August 2022. Pressing allows for quick slashes that fire ink, but holding the button will charge it for a more powerful slash, which can instantly splat opponents at close range. Moving forward while firing the charged shot will allow the player to surge forward a short distance. The projectiles fired by the Splatana Wiper are extremely accurate while standing on the ground.
The Splatana Wiper is part of an entirely new category of weapons known as splatanas! These sword-like slashers can fling ink through the power of centrifugal force. To do a basic horizontal slash, just press . But you can also hold to unleash a vertical slash that will really send some ink flying! On top of that, if you perform a vertical slash while tilting a bit forward, you'll step forward with the attack, adding enough power to flatten most foes. Paired with the Torpedo sub, you can slash across the battlefield and level your enemies with a single stroke. It's almost too good! And I haven't even mentioned the Ultra Stamp special yet. If the other team hasn't surrendered, the Ultra Stamp is sure to make 'em think twice. If you want to be among the first trailblazers in the splatana-fighting genre, this set is for you!
