Do remember this list is just my recommendation of the best specials in the game. For example, you might be an expert when it comes to using the Reefslider, so you might feel it should belong in the S Tier. That is fine as when mastered these specials and used properly some of the special weapons placed in the lower tiers can be very overpowered. You can find this Tier List very useful if you are a beginner/new to the game. Let us learn about the S Tier specials a bit more.

S Tier Special Weapons in Splatoon 3

  • Trizooka: It shoots 3 giant blobs of ink in one shot. The shots paint the area instead of leaving a trail while traveling in an arc. After you have used it thrice it will revert to its main weapon. Here are some weapons that have Trizooka & that you should use:
    • Splattershot
    • Hero Shot Replica
    • Squeezer
  • Tenta Missiles: This is a great special, if you love weapons that home onto their targets. You can use it to target either a single opponent or even all opponents in the match. When you lock onto a single target all the missiles attack them. Else depending upon the number of enemies you target the number of missiles attacking them reduces. These are all the weapons that have Tenta Missiles as their special.
    • Flingza Roller
    • Goo Tuber
    • Reef-Lux 450
  • Triple Inkstrike: Triple Inkstrike launches three missiles in the air. The player then has to use three beacons as their source of targets for the missiles. These beacons act as markers for the missiles and can be stuck on walls and lands alike. Every beacon where the missile strikes will create an ink tornado. This tornado is capable of splatting opponents and inking the ground. Here are the weapons that have Triple Inkstrike as their special weapon:
    • Slosher
    • Rapid Blaster
    • Splat Brella
