The Inkzooka (Japanese: スーパーショット Suupaa Shotto / Super Shot) is a Special Weapon in Splatoon.


When the Inkzooka is fully charged (Or acquired in Hero Mode from a Canned Special), the user is able to shoot about 1 shot per second within roughly an eight-second time period. One-shot from the Inkzooka is powerful enough to splat any opponents caught in the blast.


  • The Inkzooka is great for short-range weapons, especially the Carbon Roller, Aerospray MG, and Luna Blaster, when hitting longer-ranged opponents.
  • If the top of the tornado hits a wall, the whole tornado will disappear.
  • Even if you aim down, the tornado will still travel forward. Don't try to snipe opponent below you.
  • Since you can't use your main weapon while using Inkzooka, don't use it if an opponent is nearby.


  • The tornadoes can't go through walls, so simply hide behind one.
  • If you are using a fast, close-range weapon, you can easily rush an Inkzooka user. Try to stay out of sight until you reach them.
  • Inkzooka users can't use their sub or main weapons. Sneak up on them and then splat them
  • Hide in ink, and hit them when they aren't paying attention to you.


  • If one looks closely, the text on the Inkzooka is the Inkling language, and not proper text.
