The Tri-Stringer is a new weapon in Splatoon 3. It made its first appearance in the Splatoon 3 announcement trailer. It's a variant of The Stringer.

The Tri-Stringer functions in a charger-like manner. It can fire in three directions simultaneously and unleash charged shots that briefly freeze before exploding.

In one scene within the announcement trailer, it is seen being fired horizontally, having two kinds of attacks, like rollers in Splatoon 2. This is seen once again clearly in the Nintendo Switch OLED model announcement trailer. The first shot-type shown, which occurred while the player jumped, has three vertical shots that come from the three nozzles, and stray ink between the gaps of each shot, seems to be the attack during/after you're mid-air, similar to the vertical flick of a roller. Another shot shown was on the opposing team, and it was a condensed, compacted projectile of horizontal ink that was an attack taken without/before jumping, quite like the horizontal flick of a roller. As seen in the most recent trailer, if you look closely, the arrows seem to be made of popsicles, and they explode shortly after landing if they didn't hit an enemy.



  • In the Splatoon 3 announcement trailer, viewers can see the Tri-Stringer let loose a twinkle at one point, in a manner similar to a fully charged charger.
  • Its design seems to be based on a fishing rod, using the reel and string.
  • Although the Tri-Stringer is a charger-like weapon, it lacks a line of sight, alongside a charge meter.
  • Tri-Stringer's projectiles resemble popsicle sticks, or ice-lollies in British terms.
  • When jumping, the Tri-Stringer will shoot vertical. If shoot normally, it is usually horizontal.
  • The Tri-Stringer also seems to have the charge speed of a Bamboozler 14 Mk I
  • The Tri-Stringer's sub and special weapon seem to be Toxic Mist and Killer Wail 5.1.
  • In the Splatoon 3 Direct, it can be seen that the maximum damage of the Tri-Stringer will be 105 damage.
