The Tentatek Splattershot is an all-around weapon in terms of power, range, and rate of fire, making it easy to use for players of all levels of experience. When utilized, it sprays a steady splattering of ink until the player's ink tank is depleted. It comes in a set with Suction Bombs and the Inkzooka and was the first weapon available to the public in the E3 2014 Splatoon demo.

Many view the Tentatek Splattershot as an indispensable "jack-of-all-trades" weapon. With good all-around damage, range, fire rate, ammo consumption and inking capability, combined with the highly useful Suction Bombs and Inkzooka, the Tentatek Splattershot is a solid and safe bet for any map and any game mode. It especially shines in Rainmaker, where it’s all-around stats make it great for the defense of your carrier.

  • The weapon itself has a high enough rate of fire to keep the Kraken at bay and inks a good amount of turf to boot.
  • The Inkzooka has the second-highest range of any weapon in the game, only losing out to the E-liter 3K family of weapons, but not by much.
  • Suction Bombs are capable of flushing opponents out of key positions, such as the Tower or sniper perches.

  • The angle its shots can deviate while on the ground is 6 degrees.
  • The angle its shots can deviate while in the air is 15 degrees.

  • The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle increases by 2% per shot, and maximizes at a 25% chance to shoot towards the outer reticle.
    • This means that it takes 13 shots to reach minimum accuracy.

  • Accuracy starts recovering 6 frames after the player stops shooting.
  • Shots initially travel at a rate of 22 units per frame for 4 frames.
    • This gives the weapon an effective range of 88 units.
