The weapon re-appears in Splatoon 2 and has a new design. It has a purple stripe design that wraps around the barrel, a dark blue/purple grip and a dark green muzzle. The barrel is now part of the gun body, instead of on top, and the muzzle now comes out of the barrel. There is a cap where the tube connecting the barrel to the gun used to be, reminiscent of the caps used to refill a water gun full of water in real life. It came with S2 Weapon Special Tenta Missiles.png Tenta Missiles instead of the S Weapon Special Bomb Rush Burst Bomb.png Bomb Rush in the Splatoon 2 Testfire demo. In the current game, it comes with the S2 Weapon Special Splashdown.png Splashdown special.

The latest model of the iconic weapon that embodies the spirit of Turf War. Press Button1 ZR.png to fire off a volley of ink. This bad boy is a great choice for newbies and seasoned veterans alike.

Recommended Abilities

The Bomb Range Up ability allows players to throw Splat Bombs, Burst Bombs, Suction Bombs, Point Sensors, and Disruptors up to 50% farther. This ability encourages frequent use of the Splattershot's sub weapon, the Burst Bomb, which can splat enemies in two hits when hitting directly. With Bomb Range Up, players using the Splattershot can take out opponents from a safe distance. No brand increases the chance of rolling this ability.
The Damage Up ability increases the power of burst bombs. With just 3 Damage Up ability just one burst bomb and one shot kills a player with no Defence Up ability. Squidforce is 5x more likely to roll this ability.
The Swim Speed Up ability allows players to swim faster, which makes harder target to kill and much more mobility when moving in squid form.
Ink Recovery Up allows players to constantly throw Burst Bombs and have frequent presence on the map.

Recommended Gear

The Jungle Hat(NA) (Safari Hat(EU/OC)) comes with Ink Saver (Main) as a main ability. Because it is produced by Firefin, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) as a secondary ability. These abilities allow Splattershot users to continuously spray ink and throw Burst Bombs without wasting as much time to wait for ink to refill.
The Rockenberg Black comes with Damage Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by Rockenberg, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Run Speed Up as a secondary ability. This combination allows players to take advantage of the Splattershot's unique capabilities such as being able to move around faster as well as giving more power to a Burst Bomb.
The Layered Anchor LS comes with Run Speed Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by SquidForce, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Damage Up as a secondary ability. This is an alternative to the Rockenberg Black if you can not find it.
The Shark Moccasins comes with Bomb Range Up as a main ability. Because it is produced by Splash Mob, it also has a 5x higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) as a secondary ability. This combination allows players to take advantage of the Splattershot's unique capabilities and the Burst Bomb's power.
