The Splatana Wiper was revealed in the Splatoon 3 Direct on 10 August 2022. Pressing allows for quick horizontal slashes that fire ink, but holding the button will charge it for a more powerful vertical slash, which can instantly splat opponents at close range.

The Splatana’s projectiles are perfectly accurate, even when jumping, and the weapon has a very fast strafe-speed while performing uncharged slashes - though unaffected by Run Speed Up - which combined with its ability to ink long lines quickly, make it a very mobile weapon.

Moving forward while firing the charged shot will allow the player to lunge forward a short distance, which will also delay the slash until the end of the lunge. The player cannot lunge after jumping.

Charged slashes from the Splatana Wiper appear to only have one segment, unlike the Splatana Stamper’s larger charged slash. In practice, this means that the slash can be blocked entirely if it grazes a ledge or ceiling, for example beneath the rotating walls in Museum d’Alfonsino.

Version history

Version Adjustments
  • The width of the ink launched by horizontal slashes has been increased by about 27%.
  • The size of terrain area inked by falling spray has been increased, and it is easier to connect ink in an uninterrupted straight line.}}


Sheldon's Introduction

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!

Let's look at the Splatana Wiper. This is a thin, user-friendly splatana that uses sponge technology to ensure a balanced ink-fling with every swipe. Use horizontal slashes like jabs to keep opponents at bay while infiltrating enemy territory with your superior mobility!
