Here’s the best way to use the Splatana Wiper in Splatoon 3
While you might think of the Splatana Wiper as a simple melee weapon at first glance, it has a pretty long range. When you tap ZR, your character will swipe left and right, hurling horizontal splatters of ink in front of them. For the longest possible range, make sure to aim further up and not just at the ground in front of you.
Holding ZR causes your Inkling or Octoling to charge up a vertical slam that can spread further and take down enemies in one hit if it hits them. However, this attack method requires a lot of accuracy and timing. If you miss your punch, leave yourself open to a counterattack.
We recommend using the horizontal slashes when you are in close proximity and covering an area with no enemies nearby. This allows you to quickly cover most of the ground and eject a deluge of ink. If an enemy is a medium distance from you, this is the point to charge up your Vertical Strike and take them out when they least expect it.
One thing we noticed when using the Splatana Wiper is that it doesn’t shed ink very quickly. This can lead you to potentially outlasting opponents who will need to transform into their swimming form to grab more ink mid-fight. However, you don’t want a fight to drag out when the enemy has a more powerful weapon in hand.
