The Top Ten

1 Aerospray RG

My second favourite weapon. It is perfect for spreading ink and it also is really good for splatting foes with brushes or carbon rollers. Most people that use this weapon should be surprised if they lose a turf war. The ink mines can scare your enemies so much that they won't see the inkstrike special that you drop on them! Even though the accuracy and range isn't great, it's fire rate is amazing and it doesn't lose ink quickly to make up for it. I'd be surprised if there was someone who didn't like this weapon!

The fire-rate of this weapon is incredible. It doesn't even need that much power to be the best weapon, because this weapon will crush you before you can do anything because of the fire-rate. It has really good sub weapons and special weapons, as well.

This gun is great in turf wars because of the wide spread and fast fire-rate and in competitive battles because the ink mines are deadly when placed on a tower, in the area that is fought over, and even to protect the final area in rainmaker. The inkstrike just adds to everything.

Why is this first? No surprise.

2 Krak-On Splat Roller

So good love the kraken you roll in and use the kraken when players are close or STEAMROLL THEM

I love rollers and I like the kraken special

Cool! I love this one!

The beakons are good support, the roller is a good main weapon, and the kraken needs no introduction. - Qryzx

3 Aerospray MG

This is good too, those seekers are really the key to sucsess

4 Splatter Jr.

This one needs some explanation. Despite being designed as a downgrade from the regular splattershot, the Jr.'s stats relative to the splattershot (specifically, it's lower accuracy and higher rate of fire) make it more suitable for covering turf. While this weapon may struggle to splat opponents directly, its special (the bubbler) helps users to retreat, or get close enough for a kill.

This weapon sucks, hands down

Although first weapon in the game its still the bomb!

It's good at turfing

5 Dual Squelcher

The range is so awesome.

The range and I just love using dualies (no seriously and heck I'm usually top fragging)

Dual Spuelcher is amazing. Pretty similar to the N-Zaps, but has a better range and shorter fire rate. It also has some great specials, which are splat bombs and echolocater. I love using echolocater to super jump to my opponents and kill them. I also has Stealth Jump ability with my shoes, so they never see me coming.

6 Splat Roller

I love this weapon it's good for turf wars and does a ton of damage

For turf war, rollers always win

Rollers are overpowered

Or, optionally the Hero Roller.

They're the same thing, but one looks cool. - mattstat716

7 N-Zap '89

It's amazing if used right. Just cover turf and get the ink strike off, also with sprinkler it's a match made in heaven.

I love it. It works perfect for me. As a Level 17, I still get 700-1100 points with this.

This weapon has good range, a good color, and the sprinkler and the ink strike were made too be together.

Just plain epic

8 Inkbrush

Not my favorite weapon, but it's my favorite roller weapon.

A charger's worst nightmare

9 Kelp Splatterscope

This is the weapon I use. Having a sprinkler as a sub weapon makes it easy to ink lots of turf, and it is possible to splat people with them. It's not uncommon for me to get well over 700 points in a turf war using this weapon, while still splatting lots of players on the opposing team.

If not the best weapon, then definitely the best charger. I just got off of a match on Arrowana Mall where all of my teammates got disconnected, as well as half of the opposing team. I was still able to hold my own - I got a good chunk of the map covered and inked 1003 points of turf. I doubt I could've done that with any other charger.

10 Tentakek Splattershot

The Tentakek Splattershot is a very balanced weapon and better than the regular Splattershot and you can both spread your ink and kill you're enemies with and has great sub and special weapons.

Very good and balanced weapon.

How did I get 1 shotted...? - mattstat716

I miss the Tentatek from the first game. The Suction Bombs are always great for pressuring opponents, and the Inkzooka is useful for taking out snipers. The main weapon is also very well-rounded. It has tools to handle just about any situation - thunderstar1124

The Contenders

11 .96 Gal

Only have.52 Gal =c

It's good

12 Splattershot
13 .52 Gal Deco

One of my favorite weapons in the game. I love the kit AND the damage on it. I feel like a tank running over people when I use this (but usually feel that way when using a roller)

I got score 1765 with this baby

Got 17 kills and 2 deaths

I got 26 kills and 5 deaths. I love it!

14 Slosher Deco
15 Splash-O-Matic

Amazing weapon with goo dish range and damage love to use all the time

Best weapon and neo is good too

One of debeste weapons

16 Wasabi Splattershot

This weapon is my favorite. The main weapon, the sub weapon, and finally the special weapon go perfectly together! I always ink lots of turf and still splat lots of enemies with this weapon. Nearly every time I use this, our team wins!

This is my favorite weapon from the first game. The main weapon is one of my favorites and it has the Splat Bomb, which is really useful for keeping enemies at bay. It also comes with the Inkstrike, which is my favorite special. - thunderstar1124

I love splattershots and this is my favourite of them. In fact, this is my favourite out of all the main weapons. The splat bombs forcing enemies to retreat, and finally finishing them off with my favourite special: THE INKSTRIKE!

17 Splattershot Jr.

This is actually a suprisingly very good. It can cover a lot of turf, And it does medium damage. Fire rate is also medium. In the first game, Is it equipped with the splat bomb and bubbler, which are both one of my favorite subs and specials. Its ballanced and can counter any type of weapons (Well I do lol) So I actually recommend this weapon if you have a hard time thinking of main weapons.

18 Mini Splatling

I love the fast charge time!

19 Splat Brella
20 Octobrush

This weapon is the greatest thing ever. Fast swing speed, decent range, wide ink spread, pretty high damage, and so much more to love about this weapon. I love placing Squid Beakons in corners on the opponents' side, Super Jumping back to it every time I die (which normally only happens once per round because the main weapon is so good for sneak attacks), and placing another one in case I die again. This tactic is great at pinning down the other team. And the special is the Kraken. Need I say more?

I hate how it looses ink quickly, but apart from that it's pretty good.

What is this aiming you speak of?

This weapon is seriously overpowered and requires zero skill. If you use this weapon on Ranked Battle, you deserve to be squidbagged - thunderstar1124

21 Forge Splattershot Pro
22 Gold Dynamo Roller

It's slow but it has OP range. I personally prefer hero roller, but this is my 2nd favorite roller. HEROES!

I think this should be the first

The splat bombs make it easier to go up against chargers and fellow Dynamo users as well as the inkstrike

Again, hate these things. - mattstat716

23 Aerospray PG

This weapon is good


24 Slosher

Normal Slosher is great but Deco is my personal preference. - thunderstar1124

It's basically a shotgun, and I love shotguns


25 Custom E-Liter 3K

This is my favorite splatoon weapon

26 Tri-Slosher

It's really good for keeping and retaking that middle area in Arowana Mall and overall a good weapon in small alleyways. You can kill in two hits and it covers a wide area, and it also doesn't have a very long cool down at all (I never notice it if there even is one).

Noveau is my personal preference, but normal is good too. - mattstat716

Good in turf wars. Getting money :3

27 Grim Range Blaster
28 Berry Splattershot Pro
29 Hero Shot Replica

This I do not think works well always get killed

30 Dapple Dualies

Great kill time, it is amazing

31 Splat Dualies

My favorite weapon and my Main in Splatoon 2. It's good in ranked mode.(Mostly Rainmaker, Splat Zones.)But the Splat Dualies are great on Turf wars, you can get a lot of ink points with them. (I got them up to Super Fresh.)My one complaint about the Dualies class is that there are too many of them.(I love the Dualies class but I don't think we need a bunch of them.)

Rolling aroun at the speed of soun

32 Hero Roller Replica
33 Neo Splash-O-Matic
34 Tri Slosher Nouveau
35 Jet Squelcher
36 Heavy Splatling
37 Carbon Roller

I win every time with this - Lord28

There's other rollers out there too, you know... - mattstat716

I love this one

38 Splat/ Hero Charger

They take some time to master, but once you have them down you'll rain kills!

The bomb rush also makes it easy to corner opponents

39 Dynamo Roller

Its really power

Dynamo's should burn in hell.

Seriously, this is a cheap weapon. It's broken. - mattstat716

40 Hero Shot
41 Sploosh-O-Matic

The range is awful. When it is at close range though, it's an absolute beast. It has great damage for a high firerate weapon, so it's a really good weapon for both Turf War and Ranked. - thunderstar1124

42 Rapid Blaster Pro

Ok, when it comes to Splatoon some of us may have tried the normal blaster...and some may have not. Either way, I think it is not a very good weapon, which gave all the other blasters in the game a bad reputation. However after trying the Rapid Blaster Pro, I have reunited with the blasters because this thing has a darn seeker, and Killer Wail to go with it!

I love this! It’s amazing, I love surprising snipers with its range. Like a mix of a range and the Nzaps, which I used to use. You can also traverse the map quite quickly which is a bonus, especially at the beginning where getting to the middle first is the best way to allow easy wins. All around a flexible, amazing weapon...

Except when your cornered by anything with a equal/better fire rate than a splash-o-matic

43 Tempered Dynamo Roller

This thing is a monster! You have to beat a boss to unlock it, but it is still a very effective weapon that comes loaded and ready with a seeker. Though it costs way too much, the roller set is very awesome

Great gun, got 1426 points of turf coverage and didn’t get splatted once.

44 CoroCoro Splat Roller
45 Luna Blaster
46 Custom Splattershot Junior
47 Custom Range Blaster
48 Sloshing Machine

Why wasn't this on the list? Using this is like, "Oh my gosh! Here comes someone with a Roller! Oop! I got him/her." Plus, I like its resemblance to a Washing Machine.

49 Hero Roller

It does not have as good range as Gold Dynam roller, but it has range, is powerful, looks fresh, and is just awesome. I like hero gear.
