Template:InfoboxWeapon The Splattershot Jr. is a Shooter in Splatoon 2. It is the first weapon used by all players, given at the start of the in-game tutorial.


The Splattershot Jr. is ideal for covering large territories with ink quickly; its low accuracy provides a wider spread of ink while moving, and its low damage means it uses less ink per shot, allowing for more shots per tank of ink. It is in a set with the Splat Bomb and Ink Armor, which help counter the low damage output by adding a good offensive option and a strong defensive one, respectively. Add to that the Ink Armor's ability to shield teammates as well, and the Splattershot Jr. is an ideal support weapon.


  • The Tri-Slosher draws many parallels to the Splattershot Jr.:
    • They are less accurate and have shorter ranges than the standard weapons of their class, the Slosher and the Splattershot, respectively. However, they have wider coverage within their range and improved speed.
  • The Octoshot Replica and the Splattershot Jr. are the only weapons not obtained with cash. As such, they are the only weapons not seen in Ammo Knights.
