The Hero Charger Replica is a Main Charger Weapon in Splatoon.

Hero Mode

The Hero Charger is not available during regular Hero Mode. To use the Hero Charger, the player must buy an Inkling Girl amiibo and play her challenges. In these challenges, certain levels are played in Hero Mode, but with a Hero Charger. The Hero Charger cannot be upgraded. The blueprints to the Hero Charger Replica are received after completing the fifth boss challenge.

When finished the last challenge by defeating DJ Octavio, the player will get the blueprints made by Ammoses Shellendorf, Sheldon's grandpappy. If the blueprints are brought to Ammo Knights, Sheldon will only create a replica of the blueprint as he cannot copy the technology inside. Even though it looks like the Hero Charger, it is only a replica and it has the same stats and weapon set as the Splat Charger

Weapon Quote

"A sweet replica created by Sheldon from his grandfather's blueprints. It looks funky fresh, to be sure, but apparently it's just a regular Splat Charger with a fancy paint job..."

This weapon has the same set as the Splat Charger, and has the same sub and special, so the strategy will be the same.

This weapon appears to be inspired by the AR-15 style assault rifles, due to the very similar iron sights, foregrip, and pistol grip.
