Understanding Weapon Roles

In Splatoon 3, your role is like your primary job on the battlefield. There are three main roles, each with its unique playstyle and weapon preferences. Let’s break them down:


These are the bold and aggressive players who excel at taking out opponents. They’re divided into skirmishers and slayers. Skirmishers annoy enemies and force reactions, while slayers push ahead, get kills, and take aggressive positions. 


Support players maintain map control, enable their team, and disrupt opponents. They ensure your team has the advantage by focusing on paint, mobility, and defensive play.


Backliners are the defensive players who use long-range weapons to deny space and apply pressure. They control the battlefield from strategic positions and maintain a high vantage point.

Choosing Your Playstyle

Each role has its own strengths and challenges, but what matters most is finding the playstyle that suits you. Here’s a closer look at each role and the types of weapons you might enjoy:


If you love taking risks, engaging in close combat, and being the aggressor, frontlines are your jam. Try weapons like the Tri-slosher, Splattershot, Tetra Dualies, Splatana Wiper, Splatana Stamper. Focus on mobility, taking fights, and applying pressure to keep enemies on their toes.


Support players thrive on maintaining map control, enabling teammates, and disrupting opponents. Experiment with versatile shooters, like the Splattershot Junior, or specialized picks like the Explosher. Focus on paint efficiency, using subs and specials to support your team, and making strategic plays.


If you prefer a defensive approach and enjoy controlling the battlefield from a distance, backline weapons are your calling. Consider weapons like the Hydra Splatling, E-liter,Ballpoint Splatling. Use your range advantage to limit opponents’ options and provide support to your team.
