The Sting Ray is a Special Weapon in Splatoon 2. When activated, it allows the Inkling to fire a continuous laser that shoots through walls. To balance this the turning is slow and delayed by 0.7 seconds. However, the user can stop firing the weapon to move the camera freely. When not firing, the player can see silhouettes of opponents on the map. The player can then continue firing.
The Sting Ray shoots a laser-like beam of ink that pierces walls, which deals 2 damage per frame while it makes contact with an Inkling. While it has excellent range and can hurt Inklings hiding behind cover, the beam is narrow and easy to evade. Inklings using the Sting Ray can move normally while firing it, but they turn very slowly when doing so.
When the Sting Ray is readied, the silhouettes of opponents become visible through walls as if Thermal Ink was active, ostensibly for ease in targeting.

— In-game Description
- The Sting Ray has poor ink coverage, and is generally better for splatting enemies.
- Using the Sting Ray on the player with the Rainmaker or the Rainmaker's shield allows better objective control.
- Quickly swimming away from the Sting Ray's beam is generally the best way to avoid getting splatted, as users turn relatively slowly while the Sting Ray is active.
