  • 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.
  • When jumping, the chance to shoot towards the outer reticle instead of the inner reticle is immediately set to 40%.

This loadout is most useful during ranked Splat Zones matches. Suction Bombs can be used to set traps behind walls in Splat Zones. The Inkzooka allows you to put up a fight from a much greater distance and hit enemies who are on higher ground. Ink Saver (Main) and Ink Saver (Sub) are abilities you should consider when equipping this loadout.

  • Accuracy starts recovering 6 frames after the player stops shooting. The chance to shoot towards the outer reticle decreases by 1.5% per frame, if the chance is not already at the minimum, meaning that it takes 22 frames to reach maximum accuracy. (32 after shooting while jumping.)
  • Shots initially travel straight at a rate of 22 units per frame for 4 frames. Shots travel straight for 88 distance units.
    • After that, the shot's velocity is set to 14.495 units per frame if it is not already lower than the listed value, and decreases further as it travels.
  • Ink droplets occur every 92 units.
  • The frequency at which ink drips from a shot occurs at a rate of 1.5 droplets per shot.
  • There are a total of 6 different droplet patterns that can be created while firing this weapon.

    • These droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1.2 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.4 if they fell from a height below 30 units.
  • Droplets that occur when they travel past 200 units of the player have a radius of 16 units.
  • All other ink droplets have a radius of 12.8 units.
  • Droplets that are far from the player and all other droplets have their radius multiplied by a value ranging from 1 if they fell from a height above 100 units to 1.2 if they fell from a height below 30 units.

Sheldon's Introduction

The Tentatek Splattershot is the product of a collaboration with the gear brand Tentatek! Its stats are the same, but it now has Splat Bombs as its sub weapon and the Inkjet special, allowing players to push the front lines! I'd recommend it for anyone who wants to quickly expand their team's turf and raise their team's morale!

Sheldon's Introduction

As if the original Splattershot wasn't stylish enough, a special collab gives us the Tentatek Splattershot! Functionally, the weapon is identical to a regular Splattershot. But its fashion-forward form comes with Splat Bombs and the feared Triple Inkstrike special. It's always in style to mix things up, so I recommend this loadout for Splattershot users who dare to be different. Talk about très dangereux!

Trivia

  • From Versions 1.3.0 to 2.3.0 of Splatoon 2, the Tentatek Splattershot's Inkjet required 230p to fully charge, being one of only 2 weapons in the entire Splatoon series to have had a special points requirement greater than 220p, the other weapon being the Ballpoint Splatling Nouveau in Splatoon 2.
  • After its announcement for Splatoon 3's Chill Season 2022 update, the Tentatek Splattershot's special weapon was not initially revealed. The confirmation of Triple Inkstrike's inclusion happened indirectly before the update released, as it appears on the weapon's Tableturf Battle card art.
  • This weapon is Goggles' general weapon in the first two volumes of the Splatoon Manga.

Etymology

Tentatek Splattershot is a combination of splatter (as well as splat) and shot. It has the Tentatek brand name as a prefix to differentiate it from the Splattershot. It also denotes that the weapon is a collaboration with Tentatek.

Its Japanese name, スプラシューターコラボ supurashūtā korabo, is a combination of either splat or splash, and shooter. It also has the abbreviated prefix collab to separate it from Splashooter and to denote that it is a collaboration. However, unlike the English name, it does not specify the brand Tentatek.
