Jump to: navigation, search

The Splattershot Jr. is a main weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. It is the first weapon used by all players, given at the start of the in-game tutorial.

As the beginner weapon, the Splattershot Jr. appropriately has the capability of quickly inking large territories, a high ink efficiency, and high shot spread that makes it easy to hit targets. Each shot consumes 0.5% of the ink tank capacity, allowing the player to fire 200 shots before needing to refill their ink supply. Its loadout always includes both an offensive option and a strong defensive option.
