The Tri-Stringer resembles a bow and arrow or a miniature ballista, but made out of parts of a fishing rod, including a reel and string. When the Tri-Stringer is fired, it launches three vertical projectiles of ink while jumping. The Tri-Stringer seems to be able to shoot horizontally, but only when standing, similar to the roller. The Tri-Stringer also seems to be able to charge up its shot before firing and can store it while submerged in ink, similar to chargers, and allows the wielder to quickly strafe back and forth in humanoid form while holding a charge, much like a splatling. It is also seen with a charge animation similar to a charger's. To fire the weapon, the user pulls back on the string, which changes color depending on the user's ink, and then lets go of it after a short period of time.  Depending on how long the weapon has been charged, the Tri-Stringer will shoot one to three projectiles that resemble dynamite, which will explode after a few seconds. The ink tanks on the weapon and the bowstring seem to light up for a short period after being fired.
