— Splatoon official site

Weapons are tools used in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 to spread ink and splatter enemy Inklings. They can be purchased from Ammo Knights with Cash earned from online multiplayer matches. Weapons are always in a predefined set of a Main Weapon, a Sub Weapon, and a Special Weapon. Sub Weapons, or secondary weapons, consume considerably more ink than Main Weapons and usually serve specialized purposes limited to specific combat situations. Special Weapons are powerful weapons that can only be used after filling up the Special Gauge by covering enough ground with ink.

Splatoon

All weapons have two versions: the original, and an alternate with a different Sub and Special Weapon setup and a slightly different appearance. With the addition of Sheldon's Picks, some weapons gained a third version with yet another set of Sub and Special Weapons.

Shooter

A Shooter in action.
Shooters
Blasters

Blasters are an unofficial Sub Class of Shooters that fire large, slow globs of Ink that explode in mid-air. While they are poor at Inking turf, they excel at splatting enemies. As a result, Blaster users may struggle with Turf Wars, but can be very valuable in Ranked Battles. They are especially good at Tower Control, being able to simply pummel the tower from up close with their wide blast radius.

Roller

Spreading Ink with a Roller.
Rollers
Brushes

Brushes are an unofficial subclass of Rollers. They are characteristically much faster and more mobile than conventional rollers, but do not do nearly as much in the way of contact damage, making squishing enemies virtually impossible. However, instead of flinging Ink, Brushes quickly swipe from side to side, flicking many smaller globs. This rapid-fire flick is their primary means of spreading Ink and attacking enemies, making them ideal for fast, close-combat action.

  • The Inkbrush Series
    • S Weapon Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush – An extremely fast Brush. When pushing it along the ground, it has a very narrow coverage and is quite weak, but it greatly increases the user's speed. It also has an incredibly fast flick, but the range is quite short. It comes with Sprinklers and the Inkstrike.
  • The Octobrush Series
    • S Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush – Something of a compromise compared to the Inkbrush. It lacks the extremely high running and flicking speed, but has better range, Ink coverage, and damage output. It comes in a set with Squid Beakons and the Kraken.

Charger

Slosher

Flinging Ink from a Slosher.

  • S Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bomb – The Splat Bomb is the standard Sub Weapon. It is a pyramidal container filled with ink that explodes after a short period of time.

  • S Weapon Sub Squid Beakon.png Squid Beakon – The Squid Beakon is a device that allows teammates to Super Jump directly to its location.

  • S Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken – The Kraken allows Inklings to temporarily transform into large, invincible, kraken-like creatures with enhanced mobility and power.

Splatoon 2

In Splatoon 2 new weapons have been added, and returning weapons have all new designs. Because no Special Weapons return from the first game, all the Special weapons are changed as well. While some weapons retain the same Sub Weapon others have the Sub Weapon changed, such as the Splat Roller, which has Curling Bombs instead of Suction Bombs. Blasters and Brushes have also been recognized as their own weapon classes.

Classes

Sub Classes are a way to distinguish different weapons of one weapon type. For example the Aerospray RG and the Dual Squelcher are both considered Shooter weapons but differ in many ways. A more explicit example would be the Splat Roller compared to the Inkbrush. Those are both considered Rollers, although the Inkbrush is far from being a Roller. These Sub Classes are not officially recognized in-game, but since they have noticeably different playstyles, they are worth unofficially recognizing. Thus, this section shows all types of Sub Classes existing in the game so far.
