Most Unfair Weapons in Splatoon 2

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

The Top Ten

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.

Free kills? Yes please!

Who need range when you have fire-rate


Decently rewarding for almost zero skill required. It's not even OP, just annoying.

the bubbles kill me when the bloblober user died 10 sec ago. NERF

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

Custom Dualie Squelchers

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?

Love them so fun them

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.

Kensa Sloshing Machine

The set is too good!

It could do better w/ range

big blast

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

Ballpoint Splatling

Mobility of a mini with range of a hydra, Nintendo's balancing team must be on drugs again.

I just has too many strong characteristics as opposed to negative characteristics I didn't play much when it came to vs pre/post nerf so take that into consideration with my opinion

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


You know what? Feel free to use an Octobrush on Turf War, but for God's sake, NOWHERE ELSE!

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.

The octobrush is to overpowered. It needs a nerf NOW. Who else wants mahi mahi resort back

Damage + range

Splat Charger/Splatterscope

every single time I get in a splat charger's view I know I'm screwed

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.

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


Mr. Grizz

This dude docks my pay when I have 2 disconnects on profreshional 100

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!

You got 1 egg? Not terrible
You got 50 eggs? That's a shame

At least he gave me feet


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.


I main this thing and I still get mad at it if other people use it against me in clam blitz because you can just run around and be really fast then use your splashdown when someone gets close

Clam Blitz. Enough said.

Clam blitz


The Contenders

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.

This thing.

The amount of specials they get is BS.

Dualie Squelchers

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.

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

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.

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

Dapple Dualies

The Clear Dapples are even worse, because you can’t hide from them. AT ALL. Those stupid torpedoes are the definition of aggravating.

I love dodge-rolling

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.

The speed

Krak-On Splat Roller

I love getting one shot by a sharking player. Really fun and thrilling experience.

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

Turf war + krak-on splat roller = instant win

Meh. The normal Splat Roller is better

Range Blaster

The weapon isn't even that hard to counter, it's just annoying to play against on some maps.

I love range (and blasters)

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.

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.


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).

This weapon is CHEAP.

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

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.

Aerospray MG

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

curling bomb launcher is SOO good!

Why are these good? They just are.

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


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

Players who use this can aim

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

Damage exists isn’t the best range though

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.

It's like the roller, except even more cheep.

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.

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.

E-Liter 4K

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

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

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

This includes all of them from the normal E-Liter 4K to the Custom E-Liter 4K Scope. These weapons don’t really have a long charging time and have a RIDICULOUS range, with OHKO damage. This means it’s hopelessly overpowered in the hands of a master. It’s also super annoying when you have E-Liter tryhards on your team that are barely contributing to the objective

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

The least skill of all blasters.


I swear they put glue in this weapon instead of ink, because the second you get hit by one, you're stuck to the spot in a mile of enemy ink.

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

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

I spy

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.

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.

Dark Tetra Dualies

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

duelies are SOO GOOD

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.
