Is it a wire feed? Solid wire or Flux core? or Stick welder?

it is an AC flux core wire feed. welds good for what I do. just lots of berries
in corners or tight areas.

There are better grades of flux core wire..Hint: Don't use the stuff that comes with it.

I am far from an expert but I know on mine (Century welder) using flux core I always get a good amount of splatter. Same welder using gas is much cleaner. I never did try different brands of wire.

I have a Century (Lincoln) Flux Mig.

Like Mark said, the amount of splatter depends on the brand of the wire. I only use Forney and Lincoln and the amount of splatter is minimum.
