Most Unfair Weapons in Splatoon 2

People who use these weapons drive me out of the lobby.

The Top Ten

1 Clash Blaster

The complaint about not needing aim can be made for all blasters in general, but this one in particular takes the cake. No only is this weapon completely BS as far as needing aim to kill but its fire-rate is not even necessary. Some dev pulled this out of their ass to make the game more "balanced" but it sure as hell did the opposite.


Two words: Over. Powered.

Pff who needs any aim at all

2 Bloblobber

In my opinion the bloblobber is the worst weapon in the game, not just because it requires absolutely no skill to get tons of kills, but because it's nearly impossible to go up against one because of it's range, unless you're a good sniper

The bloblobber was nerfed already. The tuf it inked was nerfed greatly and though it takes no skill to play causal it takes lots of practice to play it really well and as an middle

bro why

This sink or mini bathtub or whatever, requires no skill to pick up, but it's hard to master this weapon since it offers unique mechanics and playstyle, yeah I still hate this weapon. Nintendo please delete this weapon, Nentindo please.

3 Custom Dualie Squelchers

Love them so fun them

Because why aim when I can shoot straight and slaughter everyone in front of me?

This should be at the top of the list. The vanilla Dualie Squelchers already have an overpowered main weapon, but the Custom variant is outright better. Like seriously, who can go wrong with Splat Bombs and Inkstorm?

A perfect example of a “low-risk high-reward” weapon. Excellent range, outright the best dodge-Roll in the game with virtually no endlag, still good damage output that can kill opponents quickly, better turf coverage than most weapons in the game, and it has Splat Bombs and Ink Storm, both of which are among the best and most favorable in their class. And what weaknesses does it have to make this weapon kind of stoppable? NONE. You can do basically whatever you want with this weapon with no fear of being overwhelmed. - thunderstar1124

4 Kensa Sloshing Machine

There’s a reason why every match in Rank X Solo Queue has at least one person using these. - thunderstar1124

5 Octobrush

No just move away sigh

Why aim when you can get multiple kills close-up! - VanillaFlare

Damage + range

No aiming needed, kills in 3 hits with virtually no fall-off, swings so fast you can barely see past the Great Wall of Ink, insane for covering turf as well as bolting to the objective, and if you somehow can't do all that there's always Autobombs and the Inkjet.

6 Ballpoint Splatling

Better Run Speed than the Mini Splatling, faster charge time than the Heavy Splatling, the fastest 4-Shot kill in the game at close range, perfectly accurate at long range, with range only slightly less than the Hydra Splatling, and you can recharge while shooting? It doesn’t take even the smartest players to realize that that the Ballpoint Splatling should not be allowed to exist in this current state.

Edit: The Ballpoint just got nerfed into oblivion, as it deserved - thunderstar1124

7 Splat Charger/Splatterscope

Um, excuse me, you need godly aim practice to use this weapon properly, especially for flicks. You basically are trading range for charge speed, and the same goes the other way around. Also it's a SNIPER. Why wouldn't it be a 1 shot kill? Just saying. - Qryzx

I'm giving this a pass due to the amount of aim you need - USGC

Oh, this weapon takes skill? Guess what? I. DON’T. CARE.

Plus as thunderstar said, really skilled people use this, not random noobs. - PSS

8 Mr. Grizz

At least he gave me feet

This dude keeps lowering my pay grade. please nerf - USGC

It's so unfair in this game! It keeps lowering my pay count! And then there's things like "Oh? 1 egg? Not bad! " and then "50 eggs? What a shame! " I hate this!

9 Blaster

I know a blaster user who always splats me in X rank!

Get caught in a single hit from them, direct or indirect, you’re not going to survive.

10 Dualie Squelchers

It's so OP, yet barely anyone uses it and sticks with deco. - Qryzx

High Range, fast fire rate, dodge rolling, essentially no end lag, bombs, trackers, missiles, and rainclouds where the drops don't need to hit you? Seems fair.
Like, please nerf these. They're only used by sweaty nerds.

How to get 15+ kills in ANY MODE with the Dualie Squelchers (95% guarantee! )
1. Get into a match.
2. Find an enemy
3. Shoot straight.
*Results may differ between how often you die.

Closterphobes who don't want anyone neat them, so they out range them by a mile.

The Contenders

11 N-ZAP '85

Good lord. Combine good range + decent damage (lOw DaMAgE my ass) and you have a weapon that requires no skill to play and is overused. It needs a 20% increase in ink consumption or a decrease in range or speed. Speaking of speed, this thing is so light weight, impossible to kill with anyone wearing run speed.

-Decent range.
-Good fire rate.
-Suction bomb tactics.
-The fact it's intended to be an aggressive weapon. - Qryzx

The amount of specials they get is BS. - mattstat716

I consider any of them unfair. This type of weapon has too much firerate for its range. I actually use them every once in a while and every time they just feel overpowered to me. The N-Zap ‘85 is the worst one though. Because it’s easy to cover a lot of ground really quickly, you can outright spam the Ink Armor. - thunderstar1124

12 Inkbrush

Clam Blitz. Enough said.

It should be banned in Clam Blitz. It’s stupid. - thunderstar1124

13 Dapple Dualies

Your dodge roll speed is so fast that being hit is impossible. By the time someone using these does insta-dodge-roll close enough to hit you, the time it takes to kill might as well be OHKO. - thunderstar1124

Gotta spam them dodgerolls... ( >:( ) - mattstat716

Would not say it’s broken but, it’s pretty good. - PSS

14 Range Blaster

I have an undying hatred for all blasters, and this one I hate the most. Too much range, OHKO Damage, and too big of a hitbox. I could have put any blaster here, but it seems that Range Blasters are the hardest to deal with. Rename this the Rage Blaster. - thunderstar1124

Range Blasters play the Keep-Away game with 1/2 of the weapons. It's bull how it even gets a OHKO and can hit around corners. Tower Control is FLOODED with them.

Be warned; you will rage if they are on the opposite team. They are NO fun to play against. - mattstat716

15 Krak-On Splat Roller

I bet you that it would be #1 if it still had kraken as a special. - Qryzx

Turf war + krak-on splat roller = instant win

Meh. The normal Splat Roller is better - thunderstar1124

16 Tri-Slosher

It's fairly overpowered I suppose, but it isn't unstoppable kind of OP.
-Larger spread from the regular slosher.
-It's a 2 hit kill.
-Burst Bomb combo.
-Fairly faster slosh (at least for me). - Qryzx

This weapon is CHEAP. - mattstat716

Ah, yes. You knew the most notoriously overpowered weapon in this game would be on here somewhere, but I really believe the Octobrush is more overpowered. This weapon takes 2 hits to kill, and has a ridiculous spread so you don’t have to be very accurate. It also throws ink faster than the regular slosher.This makes it really easy to kill someone at close range. It also doesn’t help matters that it has the same effective range as the Splattershot. You’re probably going to say that this weapon was nerfed. However, in the massive November update, it went back to its original state where it dealt 62 damage per hit. However, it’s overshadowed by the Dualie Squelchers - thunderstar1124

I think you forgot that Burst Bomb + Slosh kills faster than 2 sloshes. You just have to directly hit the opponent with the burst bomb. - mattstat716

17 Sploosh-o-matic

Players who use this can aim

I love this weapon because it is a shooter but it may be too good when used in turf war. Anywhere else is fine

Most weapons outrange them, so they're not that bad. - mattstat716

The weapon itself isn’t op, but its set makes it ridiculously cheap with spawn-camping. This weapon has amazing mobility on its own and it’s expanded even more with its curling bomb. Many Sploosh use it to camp at your spawn and it’s so annoying to catch them. It also has the Splashdown, so the user can defend themselves easily when spawncamping - thunderstar1124

18 Aerospray MG

Curling Bomb Launcher team in Turf War is especially powerful. Turf War be warned. - mattstat716

The weapon itself isn’t op, in fact it’s only good for Turf Coverage. But what makes it op is its special, the curling bomb launcher. It is so annoying to avoid and it is easily spammable because the Aerospray is really good for covering turf - thunderstar1124

19 Carbon Roller

It's unfair with camping, but people don't do that anymore.
+Faster rolling and flicking speed.
-Less ink coverage when rolling around.
-Less range.

Lol, this weapon was only a treat in Splatoon 1. - Qryzx

This roller is the most painful to deal with despite it’s short range. It flicks and rolls very fast, and it’s very easy to get close enough to an opponent to splat your opponent in a single flick. - thunderstar1124

It did get a nerf, though. Most of the time they just kinda suck. Honestly, they're not everywhere like in 1, so THANK THE LORDS FOR THAT. - mattstat716

In 1, it was ridiculously cheap with camping.
In 2... well it's still that way but a little nerfed. - mattstat716

20 Rapid Blaster

I can do a heck of a lot of damage with this thing!

One word: RANGE. It has too much range, quite a bit of firerate, and too large of a blast radius. This gives the weapon an unfair advantage on maps with skinny areas like Port Mackerel - thunderstar1124

21 E-Liter 4K

Actually... the E-Liter is currently considered the worst charger in the game. - TheYoshiOverlord

Any charger is cheap. Snapping. There you go, instant BS. - mattstat716

To be honest how are chargers cheap. snapping is not that good. - PSS

Pretty sure you can miss while snapping if you don’t then you have spent a very long time with the weapon. chargers ain’t cheap. - PSS

22 Sloshing Machine
23 .96 Gal

Honestly, forget this weapon. The Glooga Dualies are better. - thunderstar1124

24 Splattershot

Really? Who in their right mind would consider this weapon “unfair”? It’s a jack of all trades, and far from overpowered. - thunderstar1124

25 Undercover Brella

I am a main of the Octobrush Nouveau and this is the bane of my existence

Sorella is better, but this weapon is still really, really cheap - thunderstar1124

Let's face it, most brellas just plain suck. This is because of one reason and one reason only, when you put in the riot shield thing they can not fire with it. Well, the UB can. It's sub is the Ink Mine which are just a flat-out nuisance. The special is Splashdown.

As you read this, one word should pop into mind: Spawncamping.

26 Goo Tuber

I have been splatted by this more than any other weapon!

"It killed me, therefore it's overpowered and unfair! " - TheYoshiOverlord

27 The Meta

It’s The Meta.

28 Auto Bomb

Its sooo thicc that it can splat you

29 Splat Roller

They're extremely cheap with camping and used with Ninja Squid. They literally outrange and outmaneuver (with both their vertical flick and curling bomb) the Splattershot, and only have slightly less effective range.

I like how it says you can't kill someone if you hit them on the side... yet 50% of the time I die to the side. Not helpful that it comes with Curling Bombs and the Panic Button that can hit you 10 ft away with damage.

Wouldn’t call it overpowered, unless you’re camping with it and/or are using it with Ninja Squid. - thunderstar1124

30 Dark Tetra Dualies

Every match, one of those evil things splats me. Like five times.

Admittedly, Tetra Dualies are very overpowered. There’s a good reason why Japanese players use them. They can execute up to 4 dodge-rolls in a row and there’s no delay between the dodge-roll and when you can shoot again like on all other Dualies.

31 Bamboozler 14 MK II

The special is OP

I hate burst bomb launchers and bamboozlers!

Not much people or nobody uses it because it’s bad but the special is annoying

32 Rainmaker

too good

This is not a weapon you can use anywhere else other than rainmaker, so it shouldn’t be on this list. Your swimming speed is lowered significantly with this weapon, not to mention that you need to charge up your shots.

True, and the fact you need to be directly in the blast to actually die. - Qryzx

33 .96 Gal Deco

Even worse than the normal.96 Gal because it has a straight-up better sub and special. I also noticed that it can destroy bubbles from the Bubble Blower more easily than most other weapons - FirelordZuko

34 Explosher

The Range and Blast Radius is absolutely obscene, not to mention that it’s an easy 2HKO and can immobilize you with how wide their explosion inking radius is, and follow up with an easy splat. The overall set is extremely op in Splat Zones - thunderstar1124

35 Carbon Roller Deco

Don’t get me wrong, I like this set. Its burst bombs are an absolute blessing for burst canceling. However, it’s really cheap with camping like most Rollers are, and it has the Autobomb Launcher as its special. The Autobomb Launcher is hilariously overpowered, especially on modes like Rainmaker and Tower Control. - thunderstar1124

36 .52 Gal

Tell me why THIS THE 52. GAL is last. Why? It has pretty decent fire rate, good range and 2 shot kills. Every time I use this I get at least 15 kills a game.

2HKO+decent fire rate+ Baller= unfair

It’s not overpowered. It’s not even that good. Point Sensor is one of if not the worst sub in the game, and while Baller is good, the RNG on the main gun is so bad that there’s no surprise why hardly anyone uses it. - thunderstar1124

37 Jet Squelcher

It's like a Splattershot but it has crazy range and fires slower, and also takes more ink.

May not be overpowered, but it’s definitely cheap. - thunderstar1124

38 Undercover Sorella Brella

Rare to see them but when they appear, they are just way too unfair to go against

39 Toni Kensa Splattershot Pro

Mine - Coreforce

40 Luna Blaster

Not as op as in the first game but it still is quite annoying to deal with just like all other blasters. Short ranged, yes, but it has a stupidly large blast radius and an above average firerate so it takes no skill whatsoever. - thunderstar1124

It's a pretty weak weapon, actually. - mattstat716

41 Bamboozler 14 MK I

GET BAMBOOZLED! #Skills #Bamboozled #don

42 Rainmaker Explosion

Way too much splash damage.

43 L-3 Nozzlenose

If you stack Main Power Up, it's litterally the new meta of Splatoon 2

44 Tenta Brella

In the right hands, the Tenta Brella is insanely overpowered. It can launch it’s huge and incredibly durable shield quickly, and can OHKO. - thunderstar1124

45 Kensa Splattershot Pro
