The Splattershot Jr. is a Shooter in Splatoon. It is the first weapon used by all players, given at the start of the in-game tutorial.


The Splattershot Jr. is ideal for covering large territories with ink quickly; its low accuracy provides a wider spread of ink while moving, and its low damage means it uses less ink per shot, allowing for more shots per tank of ink. It is in a set with the Splat Bomb and Bubbler, which help counter the low damage output by adding a good offensive option and a strong defensive one, respectively. Add to that the Bubbler's ability to shield nearby teammates as well, and the Splattershot Jr. is an ideal support weapon.

Everyone's got to start somewhere. Good rate of fire and efficient ink use to boot. Not the most accurate of weapons, but it sprays ink so wildly you're bound to hit something!
— In-Game Description
This here is the Splattershot Jr. It’s the first weapon new arrivals to Inkopolis get their hands on when getting their feet wet in Turf War. While not the greatest in terms of range or power, this bad boy has excellent rate of fire and solid ink efficiency. As the “Jr.” indicates, it’s a well-rounded weapon that’s just perfect for noobs.


The Splattershot Jr. excels at turf coverage, making it an apt choice for Turf Wars. Bubbler allows this loadout to be a good support option since you can share Bubbler with nearby teammates. Splat Bombs, on the other hand, can be used to set clever traps or keep enemies at a distance. Even though it's the starting weapon, few loadouts are as versatile as this one. This makes it a good choice when learning new stages and game modes.
