The Splatterscope is a main weapon in the Splatoon series.

The Splatterscope is Splat Charger with a scope attached. Compared to the scopeless version it has enhanced range and a zoomed view for greater aiming precision, but players have their field of vision limited by the scope. The scoped version also loses the ability to store a charge in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. Besides range, all other stats are the same as the Splat Charger.

Appearance

The Splatterscope is nearly identical in appearance to the Splat Charger. The only difference between the two is that the Splatterscope has a scope attached to the back end of the barrel.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Splatterscope is a Splat Charger with an added scope for effective long-distance aiming. It's great for hitting far-off targets, but your view is narrow while charging, so careful where you use it!(NA)[a]

A Splat Charger fitted with a scope to allow for precision aiming. The range has been increased, but the field of vision is rather narrow.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Splatterscope is a Splat Charger with an added scope for more effective long-distance aiming. It's great for hitting far-off targets, but your view is narrow while charging, so careful where you use it! Also, that fancy scope there takes up space, so something had to go. In this case, we had to nix the ability to store your charge. But hey, if you like to stay safe and shoot from afar, this could be the charger for you! And the Splat Bombs and Sting Ray make this special scoped model worth a try, eh?
