There can’t be a Splatoon fight without weapons, and now that Splatoon 3 is coming soon, fans are excited to see the new arsenal of weapons that they can play with. Not only will the weapons from the previous games be back, but there will also be new weapon types to master, plus some new special weapons that could literally turn the paint tide around.

Splatoon 3 New Weapon Classes


Stringers are bows that can shoot out paint, and the distance of where the paint will land depends on the bow’s draw time or charge.


Splatanas are melee weapons that can also be used as a range weapon, thanks to its ability to flick paint towards a target with every slash.
