  • It's Redux Time! - The Splatoon 3 game is undergoing some massive changes! Stay tuned for more information!
Splatoon 3 Logo.png
Splatoon 3 is the third game in the Splatoon series, released for the Nintendo Switch. It keeps a similar core game, but aims to shake things up significantly, to keep the experience fresh even for seasoned players. Splatoon 3 introduces two new idol groups - Rising Tide and Radio-Octave - with Radio-Octave often interrupting Rising Tide's broadcast. Splatoon 3 also has several options for local play, as well as an expanded Hero Mode.

Gameplay Changes

Actions

Parkour has hit the streets of Inkopolis, and it's made its way to Turf Wars! By using Ext3 0a4.png, a variety of actions can be performed. This helps to spice up gameplay, give maneuverability options to weapons like Splatlings and Chargers, and give players a wider range of options at any given time.

  • Ext3 0a4.png while running - A tuck-and-roll move, gaining a small bit of extra speed, before slowing down in order to get back up. Your hitbox is much smaller, making it a good evasive tactic.
  • Ext3 0a4.png while turning around - You immediately turn around, skidding, and leaving a small splash of ink. Your run speed is slightly increased for a second.
  • Ext3 0a4.png while jumping - A dive, perfect for when you misjudge your jump and need a small bit of extra distance. Also good for surprise attacks.

Echo Location

At any time during a match, using Ext3 0a2.png to open your map will allow you to use Echo Location. Just hover over an area on the map and press Ext3 0a0.png to send a message to your team highlighting that location both on the map and in the heat of battle. It's really handy to alert your team of a dangerous enemy, an uninked path, or anything else, really!

Weapon Changes

Many weapons have gained new functionality for greater diversity in battles, and to account for brand new Actions.

  • Shooters and Blasters - Move backwards while shooting and pressing Ext3 0a1.png to do a backwards hop. It's quick, and covers a lot of ground. Great for getting out of conflict or putting some distance between you and your target.
  • Rollers - Pressing Ext3 0a7.png after a dive will allow you to slam your Roller into the ground. It's like a vertical swing, but with some extra oomph!
  • Rollers and Brushes - Both these weapon classes are now able to go backwards without having to turn around.
  • Sloshers - Hold Ext3 0a7.png to dunk the contents of your Slosher directly below you. If you do this in midair or on top of a grate, you could easily splat an unsuspecting squid! It uses up nearly a full tank of ink, though.
  • Sloshers - It's now much easier to perform a wave slosh as opposed to a direct slosh.
  • Brellas - Brella users now have a second, floaty jump. Shooting while floating will cancel your float.

UI Changes

Splatoon 3 sees a lot of changes in looks from its predecessors. In general, the interface looks a lot sleeker and modern, while still remaining in-line with the Splatoon aesthetic.

  • In the Deca Subway Station, the mode selections are styled after train tickets.
  • In Clam Blitz, the number of Clams each player possesses is shown next to their squid icons. Power Clams have their own unique symbol, and are shown both alongside the player carrying one, and beside the team counter.
  • The D-Pad has different messages:
    • Up - Over here!
    • Left - Uh-oh...
    • Right - Watch out!
    • Down - Booyah!
  • Splatting an enemy with a Sub or Special weapon gives you a unique notification, with a small depiction of the weapon.

Li'l Judd's Tips

See here.

Li'l Judd loves to watch ink battles, and has a few tips and tricks up his collar that he's willing to share. These are randomly selected each time you talk to the little fella, but some tips are locked behind levels.

Battle Modes

Turf-wars-icon.png
Regular Battle
Turf-wars-icon.png
Turf War
Turf War is the only mode available for Regular Battles. The objective of Turf War is to cover turf with your ink colour, with the team having the most turf covered at the end of a match claiming the victory. You can cover enemy ink with your own, or splat enemies to advance into their base.
Ranked-battle-icon.png
Ranked Battle
Splatzones.png
Splat Zones
Splatoon
One or more Splat Zones are spawned in the map in fixed locations, indicated by glowing lines. By inking enough of the Splat Zone, you'll claim it for your team. The goal of the mode is to control the Splat Zone(s) for 100 seconds.
Mode Icon Tower Control X.png
Tower Control
Splatoon
A tower is spawned in the center of the map, as well as several checkpoints and two finish lines. By climbing onto the tower, it will begin to move into enemy territory. Your goal is to ride the tower through the checkpoints and reach the finish line.
Mode Icon Rainmaker X.png
Rainmaker
Splatoon
A Rainmaker spawns in the center of the map, as well as two pedestals. Once you get the Rainmaker, your goal is to place it on the enemy pedestal. The Rainmaker shoots powerful balls of ink that explode, but has significant charge time. The holder of the Rainmaker is marked on the enemy map, and will glow even in squid form. When not in anybody's possession, the Rainmaker will by surrounded by a bubble.
Mode Icon Clam Blitz X.png
Clam Blitz
Splatoon 2
A clam basket appears in each team's base, as well as various clams spawning around the map. Your goal in Clam Blitz is to collect as many clams as you can and throw them into the enemy's clam basket. The clam basket can only be opened with a Power Clam, which can be obtained by collecting 10 clams. In this iteration, some minor changes have been made: the HUD displays if a player has a Power Clam; sound effects for an ally and an enemy getting a Power Clam are different; and Clams thrown to your team are more easily picked up.
Ranked Battle Black.png
8-Ball
A massive marble spawns in the middle of the map, as well as two goal posts. Your goal in this mode is to get the 8-Ball into the enemy goal. The 8-Ball can only be moved by attacking it, and will be propelled in the direction it was hit. If it's got enough momentum, the 8-Ball can splat any Inklings who get in the way.
Ranked Battle Black.png
Tentacle Hunt
Several tentacle dummies will spawn around the map, always in odd numbers. Once inked, they'll become your colour, always starting off neutral. Shoot an enemy tentacle enough to have it retract and come back up in your colour. Your goal is to claim as many tentacles as possible, or get the whole lot to get a knockout!

Salmon Run

Salmon Run.png

Salmon Run is an exclusive game mode accessible by going to GrizzCo. during open hours. Your aim in Salmon Run is to defeat Boss Salmonids to collect Golden Eggs and meet your quota for the three waves. You're supplied with a rotation of weapons and two Super Weapons to combat Salmonids. If you're splatted, you'll retreat into your lifesaver and must be inked by a teammate. If you fail to meet your quota for a wave or your team gets splatted, your shift will end prematurely.

Though normally you'll have to wear the mandatory GrizzCo. uniform, equipped with several safety precautions, Mr Grizz has recently brought in Casual Fridays. You can wear your own clothes to Salmon Run on Fridays, but keep in mind that your abilities won't matter.

Stages

Mr Grizz Map.png
Salmonrun logo.png
S2 Stage Marooner's Bay.png
Marooner's Bay
Splatoon 2
Marooner's Bay takes place on a shipwrecked boat with propeller platforms to get up to the boat from the coast. The coastal area is small, with most of the action happening on the boat or on the three piers. During low tide, a ring of shoreline is revealed.
Salmon Run Black.png
Piranha Pit
The Piranha Pit has been bought by GrizzCo., and turned into a Salmon Run area. The high tide area is a roughly circular area with several raised platforms. Mid tide reveals a much larger area filled with conveyor belts, allowing for some tricky maneuvers. Low tide gives way to a beach area with two sandbars that lead into a bottleneck.
S2 Stage Salmonid Smokeyard.png
Salmonid Smokeyard
Splatoon 2
Salmonid Smokeyard takes place on two raised platforms with propeller platforms to bridge the gap. The coastal area takes place mostly on the sides of the platforms, with a canal of water in the middle. Low tide reveals a large U-shaped metallic platform with several large containers and a grated platform connecting the ends of the platform.
Salmon Run Black.png
Salmonid Resort
Salmonid Resort used to be a popular tourist attraction - a small rollercoaster out in the ocean. Nowadays, it's been abandoned and taken over by Salmonids. High tide area takes the form of a large main platform and two smaller platforms, accessible by using Grapplinks. Mid tide reveals some more Grapplinks. The mid tide area is tricky to get used to, as it holds many pillars and wreckage. Low tide reveals a wreck of coaster tracks and grates.
Spawning Grounds.jpg
Spawning Grounds
Splatoon 2
Spawning Grounds is a map divided into several sections. The center of the map is layered level ground, housing the Egg Basket. The right section has two levels: a bare lower level, and an upper level consisting of grates and pillars. The dock is heavily layered and features 3 piers. The coast is bare, but low tide reveals three sandbars.

Lesser Salmonids

Mr Grizz Salmonids.png
Salmonrun logo.png
Chums.png
Chum
Chums are the most common form of Salmonid, who attack you with small frying pans. They're pretty weak, and really shouldn't pose much of a challenge in small numbers.
Salmon Run Black.png
Cohock
Cohocks are big fellas who wield some massive frying pans. They really pack a punch and they've got a good bit of health, but they're pretty slow. They tend to appear one at a time, and are pretty rare.
Salmon Run Black.png
Smallfry
Smallfries are tiny little Salmonids with a nasty bite and an unbelievable speed. They've got very low health, but are quick and hard to hit. They tend to appear in groups, and can easily overwhelm a player if they're not wary.
Salmon Run Black.png
Snatcher
Snatchers are pesky Salmonids who resemble Chums, but are easily identified by their blue colour. They won't attack you, and only appear one at a time, but their only aim is to steal any Golden Eggs lying around.

Boss Salmonids

Mr Grizz Boss.png
Salmonrun logo.png
Salmon Run Black.png
Bub
Bub is a Boss Salmonid who really doesn't know what he's doing. He blows large bubbles of ink from his Bubble Blower, and can be defeated by splatting one of his bubbles near him.
Salmon Run Black.png
Drizzler
Splatoon 2
Drizzlers are Boss Salmonids who hide in large metallic umbrellas. They will shoot floating bombs which will then take into the sky and cause an Ink Storm, but can be splatted to stop it before it happens. After launching a bomb, they'll be vulnerable to being splatted.
Salmon Run Black.png
Flingfish
Flingfish are a rare Boss Salmonid. It's a Salmonid riding a makeshift catapult - launching Burst Bombs with a large spoon. Rarely, a Flingfish might launch a group of Chums from its catapult. A Flingfish can be defeated by throwing a bomb onto its catapult.
Salmon Run Black.png
Goldie
Splatoon 2
Goldies only appear during Salmon Rush and Goldie Seeking. They're fast and have high health, but are constantly glowing. When defeated, they will drop three Golden Eggs spread out.
Salmon Run Black.png
Griller
Splatoon 2
Grillers only appear during the Griller event. They are massive Splash Walls that will lock onto players and chase them down. They can be defeated by splatting the fish tail jutting out of the back of it.
Salmon Run Black.png
Maws
Splatoon 2
Maws is a massive fish that swims around in Salmonid ink. Every now and then it will surface, chomping on any unfortunate Inklings. While it can be splatted by inkling it when it surfaces, it's much easier to just feed Maws a bomb.
Salmon Run Black.png
Mothership
Splatoon 2
The Mothership only appears during the Mothership event. It will hover above the map in the distance, where no weapon can reach it, and send out Salmonids carrying large crates containing Golden Eggs. The Mothership will sometimes head to the Egg Basket and attempt to suck up the Golden Eggs, and must be splatted away.
Salmon Run Black.png
Rippler
Inspired by Stamps, Fountain Pens and Paint Squirters, this Salmonid travels around in a heavily enclosed vehicle. Once he's close enough, he'll launch a Stamp-like projectile from the top of his vehicle, exposing his head for splatting. After reaching its maximum height, the Stamp will fall back down onto the Rippler's vehicle, once again protecting him, and releasing a large ripple of ink.
Salmon Run Black.png
Salmonscope
This flying Salmonid holds a makeshift Inksploder, and will lock onto GrizzCo. employees, indicated with a golden ring. Once locked on, he'll fire an explosive marble at you. The only way to defeat this Boss Salmonid is by firing those marbles right back!
Salmon Run Black.png
Smokey
By far the quickest Salmonid. Smokeys ride around on unicycles, spitting out ink in mist form. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the mist, so Smokeys are rather high priority if you want to keep things visible. Once you get close, a Smokey will release a large puff of smoke in an attempt to protect itself.
Salmon Run Black.png
Spritzer
Spritzers are Boss Salmonids who wear odd helicopter helmets that allow them to fly. As they fly around, they will spray ink like a Sprinkler. They can be easily splatted, but are pretty quick and have a decent bit of health.
Salmon Run Black.png
Steel Eel
Splatoon 2
The Steel Eel is a long machine piloted by a Salmonid at its rear. It sprays ink wherever it goes and chases down players. Luckily, the Steel Eel is easily defeated by splatting the pilot at its rear.
Salmon Run Black.png
Steelhead
Splatoon 2
Steelheads are massive steel-coated Boss Salmonids who throw bombs. They prepare these bombs on their head before throwing them, allowing you to ink it your colour. Once the bomb is fully inked, it will explode, defeating the Steelhead.
Salmon Run Black.png
Trundle
A Trundle is a Smallfry rolling around the map on top of a Baller. It leaves a trail of ink as it rolls, squishing Inklings as it goes. They can be defeated by splatting the Smallfry on top of the Baller, but it's difficult to hit due to its small size.

Events

Mr Grizz Event.png
Salmonrun logo.png
Salmon Run Black.png
Cohock Charge
Splatoon 2
The tide is lowered to the shoreline, and the only Lesser Salmonid to spawn this wave are Cohocks. Ink Cannons are supplied to help deal with the horde.
Salmon Run Black.png
Goldie Seeking
Splatoon 2
Gushers activate throughout the map, spawning Salmonids from it. Your goal is to activate the Gusher with the Goldie in it and gather Golden Eggs from it. Goldies are the only Boss Salmonids in this wave.
Salmon Run Black.png
Griller
Splatoon 2
All Salmonids are replaced with Grillers and Smallfry. Smallfry spawn in small groups, while Grillers show up one at a time. Later in the wave, multiple Grillers may appear at a time.
Salmon Run Black.png
Mothership
Splatoon 2
The Mothership hovers above the map in the distance, where no weapon can reach it, and send out Salmonids carrying large crates containing Golden Eggs. The Mothership will sometimes head to the Egg Basket and attempt to suck up the Golden Eggs, and must be splatted away.
Salmon Run Black.png
Salmon Rush
Splatoon 2
Glowflies appear around a player, causing the Salmonids to become restless and chase the payer down. The only Boss Salmonid that spawns is the Goldie.
Salmon Run Black.png
Tide - High
Splatoon 2
The water level rises, confining Inklings to a much smaller working space. It's easy to get overwhelmed in this small area, so you need to have each other's backs.
Salmon Run Black.png
Tide - Low
Splatoon 2
The map is lowered to its lowest point as water levels drop. This gives way to a new area where all Salmonid will spawn, as well as having a new Egg Basket.

GrizzCo. Weapons

Mr Grizz Weapon.png

GrizzCo. Weapons are illegally modified versions of existing weapons, only available during wildcard rotations. These weapons perform much better than usual, such as the GrizzCo Charger charging fully with the tap of a trigger.

Downtown Inkopolis

Inkopolis Icon.png

Downtown Inkopolis is a popular shopping district, or just a chill place for Inklings to hang out. It's the new hub for Splatoon 3, and is bigger than the previous hubs. It encourages exploration, as it hides many secrets.

Areas

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Deca Subway Station The Deca Subway Station is the go-to area for battles, replacing the Deca Tower. The Deca Subway Station provides transit to and from Turf War areas.
Rising Tide Studio This is where Rising Tide record their news broadcasts. They'll typically be seen sitting down talking to each other, and will wave at fans. If you're lucky, you might catch them rehearsing before a Splatfest, or recording a new song.
GrizzCo. GrizzCo. has moved their base of operations to Downtown Inkpolis due to it becoming a popular spot. They're recruiting budding young Inklings to participate in Salmon Runs, and are willing to pay generously.
Ammo Knights Ammo Knights has been taken over by Taki, after Sheldon gave up the weapon selling business. She's working on creating some new weapons inspired by her Octarian research, and is eager to sell them to public. That is, if you're fresh enough.
Pelago Arc The Pelago Arc Mall is a department store owned by shareholders of MakoMart. Here, you'll be able to buy anything from headwear, shirts, or shoes. Each section of the store has an expert to help you pick out the freshest outfit.
Off The Hook Music Studio A music studio run by Off The Hook's very own Pearl and Marina. Here, you can listen to tracks from the game, buy new tracks, or just look at album covers. You'll need a high level to get in, though. Only the freshest of squids allowed.
Tentatonne The Tentatonne Gym is run by local weapon enthusiast Sheldon. Tentatonne is home to various types of local multiplayer, as well as weapon training courses given by the crab himself.
Crust Bucket The Crust Bucket, run by Crusty Sean, is now a restaurant in Downtown Inkopolis! Using tickets from Salmon Run and Octo Gorge, Inklings can buy food here in order to give them bonuses for the next 20 battles.
Secret Sea Snail Society Clubhouse The Secret Sea Snail Society is wrapped in mystery, and will not even let you in unless you know the secret password. As it turns out, it's just a bunch of Urchins playing video games for Sea Snails. Here, you can compete in daily Sea Snail challenges, and exchange Sea Snails for gear slots.
Inkblt Galleria Run by Inkblot Art Academy, the Galleria is a hub for kids and squids to check out the latest art exhibits - in the form of graffiti!

Pachinko By using the Pachinko Machine in the Arcade Corner, you can play for Gachapals. These stylish keychains depict various characters, and your fav can be viewed in your profile.
Octo Gorge Entrance An Inkling with black hair stands over a sewer grate, hiding her face. If you make eye contact with the mystery woman, she'll turn into a squid and head down the grate. Head down there yourself, and you'll emerge in the entrance to Octo Gorge.

Arcade Games

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Squid Jump 2: Jump Harder The long-awaited sequel to Squid Jump! Control a white squid and jump up to the Zapfish at the top of the level.

8-Ball Pong Control a long sponge by moving it up and down, and bounce the 8-Ball back to your enemy's side. If you let the 8-Ball enter your goals, you lose. As the game goes on, things will speed up and get a little bit trickier.
Squid Fighter Squid Fighter is an old-school RPG game inspired by the likes of Final Fantasy. You assemble a "squid squad" of 3 Squid Fighters and face off against various Octarian enemies in a turn-based battle. In place of a mana meter, you have an Ink Meter, which will drain as you use attacks. You can replenish your team's Ink Meter by submerging in your ink in squid form. In order to activate your Special move, you'll need to ink a certain amount of the battlefield.

New Octopia

Octarian Badge Purple.png

Octo Gorge is the greater location of Splatlantis - the recently discovered home of the Octarians. The Squidbeak Splatoon are stationed at the entrance to Octo Gorge, and you're their latest recruit.

As you journey through Hero Mode and other activities, you'll progress from Octo Gorge into Splatlantis, where you'll find a much more open city-themed world to explore.

Bet you've got a ton of questions. Let me answer them for you.

In the final fight against the Octarians, you'll take the role of Agent 7 of the Squidbeak Splatoon. You'll work alongside leaders Callie and Marie, and rookies Agent 5 and 6 as you make your way into Splatlantis to take on their mysterious new leader.

Secret Sea Snail Society

The Secret Sea Snail Society is a mysterious organisation with posters scattered around Inkopolis. If you can follow the hints on the posters and figure out the secret password, you'll be allowed into the Society. In reality, it's not a cult or anything... it's just a bunch of young Urchins playing video games. They offer a number of easy ways to rack up Sea Snails.

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Obstacle Tourney The Secret Sea Snail Society have set up a series of obstacle courses. If you can make it through these obstacle courses intact, you'll earn a couple Sea Snails.
Daily Challenge The Secret Sea Snail Society work hard to create a new obstacle course every day, and will give Sea Snails to anybody who can complete the day's course.
Leaderboard Competitions Every now and then, the Secret Sea Snail Society will host video game tourneys. You'll be playing the arcade games and competing for the highest score. Knocking people off of the leaderboard will earn you Sea Snails.

inkPhone

InkPhone.png

All the youth of Inkopolis have an inkPhone! They're all the rage nowadays. You can use your inkPhone to order gear from the Secret Sea Snail Society, receive updates, review patch notes, check your gear, and the current stage rotations.

Your inkPhone also doubles as your menu, zoom in and camera feature, and it's your preferred means of watching Rising Tide's news broadcast! Of course, you can always just press the home button to skip the broadcast.

Buy purchasing songs from Off the Hook's music studio, you're able to set up a playlist for yourself! These songs will play during battle, and you can even select which version of Now or Never! you'd like to play during Turf Wars. However, you can't use a playlist during Splatfest Battles.

Your inkPhone case will change colour to match your current ink colour, or you can ask Murrch to sell you a solid colour inkPhone case. If you have a Splatoon series amiibo, you can use that amiibo figure's unique inkPhone case. There's also the Pachinko Machine outside the Deca Subway, where you can get a Gachapal - a cute keychain for your inkPhone or weapons!

Gachapals

Gachapals are collectible kaychains for your inkPhone that you can get from the Pachinko machine in Inkopolis. They're styled after a mysterious item known as a "Mem Cake", and were produced by an individual known as CQ. However, it's not known who writes the descriptions.

Alongside Stickers, select Gachapals can be attached to certain weapons to add some extra flair.

SplatNet

Inkling Splatnet2.png

SplatNet makes a comeback in Splatoon 3, as part of the Nintendo Switch mobile app, or available from the official website. It's handy for checking your stats on the go, or setting up pre-saved gear sets. Of course, the main draw is the exclusive gear available from the SplatNet shop, which can be picked up at the Secret Sea Snail Society HQ. These can be regular clothing with unique abilities, or Nintendo-brand gear based on famous characters!

Manga

Meena Redux New Transparent.png
Meena
Meena Icon New.png
Meena is one half of Rising Tide - an 80s themed pop group. Meena's not so keen on the singing aspect, and prefers writing songs and focuses on choreography. She's a bit of a pessimist, and is easily annoyed. Meena cannot be bothered most of the time, and has a bit of an attitude. She does have a soft spot for Remora, though. Meena is very keen on keeping in shape and uses an Inkbrush.
Remora Redux New Transparent.png
Remora
Remora Icon New.png
Remora is the other half of Rising Tide - Inkopolis's latest pop sensation. Remora does most of the singing and handles most of the publicity aspect of being famous. She absolutely loves the attention. Remora is an optimist through and through, but is a little bit insecure. She embodies the typical "valley girl" stereotype and uses a Slosher.
Pike Redux New Transparent.png
Pike
Pike Icon New.png
Pike is one half of Radio-Octave - the rock sensation that's taking Octo Gorge by storm. Pike puts up a tough front and a bit of a snarky attitude, but deep down she's a real softie. She has a pet Zapfish called Zippy who she loves with all her heart. Pike loves nothing more than a good pun and is one of the original Octarian army members. She uses a Stamp.
Tetra Redux New Transparent.png
Tetra
Tetra Icon New.png
Tetra is the other half of Radio-Octave - an Octoling rock group who frequently interrupt Rising Tide's broadcasts. Tetra is a lot more mature than her childlike companion, and is a little bit flirty with everybody. She's easily distracted, often searching on her phone in the middle of a broadcast. Tetra has a short fuse and uses a Bumper.

Taki and OTTO
Taki runs the Downtown Inkopolis franchise store of Ammo Knights, and a close friend of Rising Tide. She's an ink battle enthusiast, and was formerly an Octarian engineer. Her little Autobomb buddy, OTTO (Over The Top Observer), helps her around the store, and can provide you with statistics about your ink battles, like Marie's Agent 4 Factopedia.
Cap'n Cuttlefish TBA
Mari-Anna Mari-Anna is a ping pong tree sponge from the Deepsea Metro who sells headwear at the Pelago Arc. She's a silent type, constantly on her inkPhone. Each of her, uh, "heads" has its own distinct headgear. With all those ability slots, she'd be great in Turf War! But alas, she's already found her calling.
Angelo Angelo is a kind-hearted sea angel, and a former denizen of the deep. Don't let his massive build intimidate you, he'll squeal in excitement when you find a shirt that suits you just right. "That's the one! Oh, squiddo, you've GOTTA buy this!"
Iso Padre After the Deepsea Metro was destroyed, Iso Padre took to the surface and found solace in the vibrant colours of the promised land. In particular, he took an interest in fashion, and decided to take on a job selling shoes in the Pelago Arc.

Stages

Stage Components

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Inkrail S3.png
Inkrail
Once you ink the base of an Inkrail, it sends a stream of ink in a set route, allowing you to swim through it for quick access and alternate routes.
Sponge S3.png
Sponge
Sponges grow once hit with their corresponding ink, acting as a platform, shield, or various other uses. Enemy ink will cause it to shrink, and sponges count toward the final score in Turf War.

Regular Rotation

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Barracuda Boardwalk.png
Barracuda Boardwalk
Sponges
Barracuda Boardwalk takes place on a boardwalk by the beach. It's a mostly straight map, with a large section jutting out over the ocean. This section has many grated areas for Inklings to fall through if they're not wary. Throughout the map are various surfboards to act as cover, as well as umbrellas with steps made of cooler boxes. These umbrellas cannot be inked, but can act as good vantage points for Chargers.

Freshwater Car Wash.png
Freshwater Car Wash
Freshwater Car Wash marks the introduction of Ink Tubes and Ink Pistons to multiplayer. The main area of this map is in the center, where various cars are waiting to be washed. If you want to play it strategically, you can flank the sides, and activate the Ink Pistons. This will cause an Ink Tube of your colour to poke out of the central area, splatting any enemies who come in contact with it, and inking a bit of turf!
Splatoon Map Icon.png
Humboldt Street
Inkrails
Humboldt Street is one of Inkopolis's main streets, but it's been closed off for Turf War matches. The map is sort of shaped like a lightning bolt, with a few side streets and alleys. Along the stage are various fire hydrants which, when inked, will spray your ink colour. There are also a few parked cars, which can act as good cover. There are also many fire escapes to hide on, and a few rooftops to ink.

Marlin Railway
Taking place just out back of the Deca Subway Station, Marlin Railway is a vertically mirrored map, like Saltspray Rig. Both teams start at opposite ends of a set of train tracks, connected by ramps, bridges, and inkrails alike. You can ink inside of and on top of train cars, both of which count toward the ink total. The main attraction of the map is the large bridge at the top, with entrances from both sides. This is where the fiercest battles happen, as it gives an excellent vantage point and covers a large bit of turf.

Ostracod Tunnels
Inkrails
These tunnels were only recently excavated, and just happened to be perfectly symmetrical! This stage is home to many tricky ledges, but its main feature is the chasm in the middle of the map, separating the two halves. The main way across this chasm is by using one of the two bridges, though there are ledges on either side that will allow you to cross the gap, as well as a few areas where a skilled Squid Jump will get you across.
Splatoon Map Icon.png
Pufferfish Park
Pufferfish Park is Inkopolis's very own park. It's got some gorgeous flowers growing, so Inklings aren't allowed on the grass. The map is circular, with various pathways heading toward a pond in the center. The main pathways on either side of the map are on bridges over a river, which appears frequently again throughout the map. Some areas require you to Squid Jump to get over the river.

Shifty Station

Splatoon Table Icon.png
Shifty Station Mario VS Bowser.png
In Your Line
Inkrails
This version of Shifty Station incorporates a lot of Inkrails, some of which are covered by pipes. The main battle happens in the central rectangular area where there are two large inkable boxes. You'll need to be cautious at all times, as Inkrail pipes can lead to ambushes nearly anywhere on the map.
Used for Shifty Station Mario VS Bowser.png Mario VS Bowser.
Shifty Station Flowers VS Chocolates.png
Another Sponge in the Wall
Sponges
This version of Shifty Station is roughly H-shaped, with a makeshift bridge made of sponges on either side. The main route is the manmade bridge in the center, but the two sponge bridges act as side routes, albeit a bit more dangerous. The stage is decorated in hearts and spotlights.

Shifty Station Handheld VS Docked.png
Fans in the Street
This version of Shifty Station incorporates many ink propeller platforms. It's shaped similarly to two rectangles intersecting, with various points jutting outward, and various gaps and heights for ink propelled platforms to traverse. The stage is decorated with Joy-Con statues, posters, and stickers.

Shifty Station Tea VS Cocoa.png
Flood the Valley
This Shifty Station is a valley-type map. The central area is significantly lower than the two starting areas, and the stage makes heavy use of Gushers. They're essential for getting to higher ground, as most walls are uninkable.
Used for Shifty Station Tea VS Cocoa.png Tea VS Cocoa
Shifty Station Crust VS Tip.png
Stairway to Splats
This Shifty Station makes use of Ink Pistons to push out platforms. These large platforms can be used as sniping areas or extra turf, but enemies can easily mess up your balance by pushing out corresponding platforms.

Shifty Station Later VS Now.png
Silent Rolling on Steep Ground
Each team starts at one side of a large... ramp? Mountain? This slope has many areas jutting out of it, as well as a hidden tunnel to the other side. If you see an enemy making their way down your side, shoot some Rolonium at them to splat them!
Used for Shifty Station Later VS Now.png Later VS Now.
Shifty Station Dress VS Suit.png
Rad Runway
Sponges
Both teams start on either side of a glass wall. In fact, the entire stage is divided by this wall, aside from the central area. From here, you can climb into the opponent's half of the divider and mess things up! And hey, why not take advantage of that floating platform at the end of the central area?
Used for Shifty Station Dress VS Suit.png Dress VS Suit.
Shifty Station Pikachu VS Eevee.png
Stop Spinnin' My Ink Around
Aside from your tiny spawn areas, the entirety of this map is easily accessible by both teams! This Shifty Station is circular, and consists of 3 concentric circles, each rotating in a different direction. Make good use of these rotations to get the best out of this map. The stage is surrounded by crowds of jellyfish watching the battle, with large monitors displaying the battle.

This Shifty Station focuses on a large portion of the stage being entirely separated from the rest of it. It can only be accessed via inkrails, and once you're there, hit the switch to turn the Sponges into your colour to allow your team mates a bridge! Controlling the middle is key to winning a match here - just like Splat Zones!
Used for Shifty Station Cute VS Cool.png Cute VS Cool.
Shifty Station Courage VS Wisdom.png
The Alley of the Octoballers
Sponges
This stage is very vertical, with both inclines coming to meet in the center. The main attraction of this stage are the many Octoballers that roll around it. You can destroy Octoballers of the enemy colour to prevent them from spreading ink, but you run the risk of being squashed.

Weapons

Taki runs a franchise store of Ammo Knights, and she'll handle your weapon dealings. She's in the good books with ink battle representatives, and they'll allow you to customise your weapons with Gachapals obtained through the Pachinko Machine, and Stcikers obtained through battling! Of course, all changes must be run by Taki.

New Weapon Types

Ammo Knights Logo.png
Ammo Knights Icon.png
Bubble Spray
Bubble Spray weapons shoot flurries of small bubbles. These will float around, dropping ink, until they pop, spreading a bit more ink. They're normally pretty weak, but open up new strategies for inking. By tapping the trigger repeatedly, you can shoot one large bubble similar to a Bubble Blower, which will spread more ink and is a lot more powerful. Not to mention, your teammates can shoot this bubble!
Ammo Knights Icon.png
Bumpers
Bumper weapons shoot large marbles that spread ink as they roll - about waist height. They roll a good distance before exploding with a very small blast radius. Being rolled over by a marble is near fatal, but it's an instant splat if you're hit at the start of its roll. Bumpers typically have slow fire rate, and use up a lot of ink.
Ammo Knights Icon.png
Stamps
Stamps are, in essence, stationary Rollers. They're large hammers with stamps on the end. Stamps are swung like hammers onto the ground, inking that area. Just one hit from most Stamps is enough to splat an opponent.

Sub Weapons

Ammo Knights Logo.png
Barnabuckle Tag.png
Barnabuckle
The Barnabuckle is thrown in the direction you're aiming. If you've aimed correctly, you can hook onto a faraway wall and propel yourself toward it! Only works on walls or ground higher than you. If it misses, it'll leave a small puddle of ink, and takes a short bit to drag back.
Burst Bomb Tag.png
Burst Bomb
Bombs that explode immediately upon impact. These don't do as much damage as Splat Bombs, and are better for inking far-off turf.
Fizzy Bomb Tag.png
Fizzy Bomb
Fizzy Bombs detonate once they hit the ground, and are weaker than a Splat Bomb, as well as having a smaller blast radius. However, give your Fizzy Bomb a shake before throwing it and it will explode up to four times in succession!
Hydra Booster Tag.png
Hydra Booster
The Hydra Booster gives any weapon amazing mobility, no matter how heavy. Consuming a third of your ink tank, using the Hydra Booster will allow you to dash forward, even in midair. You'll also leave a small trail of ink.
Mini Maws Tag.png
Mini Maws
Placing a Mini Maws down will create a trap for any enemy squid who passes over it. The robotic Mini-Maws will chomp down on an unfortunate squid, instantly splatting them.
Puffer Bomb Tag.png
Puffer Bomb
The Puffer Bomb locks onto an enemy in midair, and targets them. They can be shot down, causing them to explode in their ink colour. If you're hit by a Puffer Bomb, it will deal a bit of damage, and knock you pretty far back.
Splash Wall Tag.png
Splash Wall
Splash Walls act as one-way walls for anybody on your team. You and your team can shoot and walk through the Splash Wall, but enemies will have to break the Splash Wall before they can get past it.
Splat Bomb Tag.png
Splat Bomb
These bombs have a short timer from hitting the ground to exploding. They can splat anybody within the blast radius.
Splatterang Tag.png
Splatterang
The Splatterang can be thrown in any direction, leaving a trail of ink as it flies, and eventually returns back to you. If it hits a wall, it will break, and take longer to respawn. It deals some pretty good damage to enemies if it lands a direct hit.
Squee-B Tag.png
Squee-B
Replacing the Curling Bomb, the Squee-B will charge forward and eat up enemy ink. Once it reaches a certain distance, it will explode. The explosion will be bigger if the Squee-B absorbs more ink.
Squid Beakon Tag.png
Squid Beakon
Placing the Squid Beakon down will create a quick Super Jump point for you and your team. However, the enemy team can see these on their map as well, and can destroy them.
Suction Bomb Tag.png
Suction Bomb
These bombs will stick to any surface they're thrown at. They take a small bit longer than Splat Bombs to explode, but deal some serious damage.
Spray Bomb Tag.png
Spray Bomb
Throwing the Spray Bomb creates a cloud of inky fog. Any enemies in this fog are weakened and slowed, and has a temporary Point Sensor effect, allowing you and your team to see their location no matter where they may be.

Swab Bomb Tag.png

The Swab Bomb can be thrown at any surface, and it'll automatically stick. Fill it up with your team's ink, and the eventual explosion will be massive! Of course, it also makes it a bigger target for enemies to shrink it with their own ink.
Takoyaki Launcher Tag.png
Takoyaki Launcher
The Takoyaki Launcher allows you to fire up to 5 takoyaki balls. Once they settle in the ground, they'll erupt into swirling tendrils of ink, preventing enemies from passing safely. Will you block off a path, hunt down a foe, or something completely different?
Tenta Missiles Tag.png
Tenta Missiles
The Tenta Missiles allow you to lock onto up to 4 opponents, regardless of where they may be. You'll fire a barrage of ink missiles at them, and their location will be revealed to you and your team!

The Joycon Dualies are blue and red, respectively. These Dualies come with the Splat Bomb Sub Weapon to make up for what this weapon lacks in range, as well as carrying the Super Stick for extra mobility in a crisis.

Carbon Stamp
Brand Deco.png
The Carbon Stamp is a lightweight version of the traditional Stamp weapon. It allows you to move much quicker, and is much easier to swing. Its speed comes at the cost of decreased power, but a well-timed Burst Bomb should easily solve that problem.

Tired of being able to only stamp slowly, one stamp at a time? Then the Multistamp is for you! This Stamp has special modifications made to the handle, making it easier to Stamp several times in quick succession.

Super Scope

The Super Scope was modeled after an ancient artifact uncovered recently. It's a Charger weapon that comes with a built in scope, allowing you to zero in on your prey and... splat! It comes equipped with a set built for area control while you take aim.

Steam Roller
S Brand Custom.png
The Steam Roller is themed after steampunk aesthetics, making it stand apart from other Rollers. Though it's no more powerful than your average Roller, it starts off a lot slower. As you roll, your speed will pick up until you're as fast as a Carbon Roller. This has its drawbacks, so it's all up to how well you use this Roller's increasing speed.

Propella Brella
S Brand Brella.png
This Brella weapon is designed for pushing forward. The Brella itself isn't the most durable thing in the world, but launches with great speed and attack power. The Propella Brella is great for getting into enemy turf, and the Squid Beakons give your team easy access.

Pop Slosher

The Pop Slosher bears a unique design based off popcorn buckets. Perfect for those who like to snack while inking! Its power leaves a lot to be desired, but it's very ink efficient. It also sports decent range and very quick Special Charge rate!

Beach Brella
S Brand Brella.png
The Beach Brella is designed for ink battles by the shore. Sporting a chic design and warm pastel colours, it fits in perfectly with the beach environment! The Brella canopy is moderately larger than your average Brella design, but lacks the durability. If you find yourself in trouble, drown your opponents with the Tsunamink!

Firecracker

The Firecracker is a Blaster designed by students at Inkblot Art Academy in order to paint large surfaces with ease. Its blast radius is definitely something to brag about, and it sports the same power as most Blasters. On the other hand, it doesn't have that great of a fire rate. But, hey! The explosions look cool!

Splat Bumper
Brand Splat.png
The Splat Bumper is the first of the Bumper class of weapons, which shoot large marbles to spread ink. It's perfect for those who want to get used to Bumper weapons, since they can be tricky to get a hold of. The Splat Bumper comes equipped with the Spray Bomb for when you want to get a bit messier, and the Fountain Pen is perfect for setting up a trap with your marbles.

Bubble Spray
S2 Brand Foil.png
The Bubble Spray is the most basic of its class of weapons. Like others in the weapon class, it can shoot either a flurry of small bubbles, or one massive bubble. The Splatterang was specially chosen to ink up your big bubble after launching it, and the Suction Bomb Launcher can finish off opponents.

Drizzlemaker
S Brand Custom.png
Designed after the ever-famous Rainmaker, the Drizzlemaker is a Charger with shots that, when fully charged, cause a small explosion. Though it packs quite the punch and has the potential to splat multiple people with one shot, the range on this weapon leaves a lot to be desired, and the charge time is reminiscent of the Rainmaker.

Blobbumper
S Brand Custom.png
Unlike other Bumpers, which shoot rolling, exploding marbles, the Blobbumper launches blobs of ink that bounce along the ground, and eventually pop. These blobs use less ink than your average marble, and comes with the Splash Wall and Swab Bomb for excellent stage control potential.

Once again, the Foil brand surprise us all with a new spin on an old weapon. Quite literally, in this case. By holding the attack button, you'll spin around with the Stamp, allowing you to move about, and spreading ink similarly to a Sprinkler. Release for the signature Stamp slam!

Jazzed Bumper

This Bumper type weapon sports a design inspired by an ancient relic known as a "tuba". The marbles shot from this Bumper begin at a slight arc, allowing them to squash enemies more easily. On the other hand, you'll suffer more recoil than usual.

Deluga Splatling
S Brand Dolphin.png
Inspired by the design of your average showerhead, the Deluga Splatling is created as a weapon designed for pushing, with a set designed to carry your team along with you. The Deluga doesn't have much range, but it sports excellent charge time and rate of fire.

Deluga D

This variation of the Deluga Splatling comes with a more aggressive toolkit. Its poor range is made up for by its Splat Bomb sub weapon, and with such a short Special charge, you'll be raining on your enemy's parade in no time!

Luminator W-3000
S Brand Neo.png
The Luminator W-3000 is a Splatling themed after a lightbulb. It's adorned with lights that glow while charging and firing, and an enemy with a keen eye can see how much you've charged - not that it really matters with this weapon's power. What it lacks in range, the Luminator W-3000 makes up for in the ability to store charges in ink.

Seaspray Dualies
S Brand Dolphin.png
The Seaspray Dualies are a peculiar set of Dualies, sporting only one dodge roll to their name. Granted, it's got more range than two average dodge rolls, but that can be very difficult to get a hold of. These Dualies resemble water taps, and have an excellent fire rate to match, but poor damage output.

Vella Brella
S Brand Brella.png
This Brella sports a pastel colourscheme and a heart-shaped canopy. This canopy is very durable, and the Brella itself shoots light shots that aren't great for taking out foes, but excellent for inking turf. In fact, given the set it comes with, it's probably a good idea to keep your distance from the heat of the battle - unless you're there to protect your team with your Brella!

The Samurai Roller is modeled after some old Octarian technology. Its features include a speedier roll that maintains the power of the Spat Roller. Its flings are rather slow, but fling your Roller after a dive to send out a powerful wall of ink!

Splatfests

Splatfests are events that occur normally once a month, lasting an entire weekend. They're massive festivals during which two teams compete to see which of two things is better. During Splatfests, you are limited to Turf Wars on 3 maps, one of which being a variant of Shifty Station. You will get Sea Snails depending on how well you did during the Spltfest, and if your team won or not.

Depending on who is conducting the Splatfest, both Rising Tide and Radio-Octave will appear in Downtown Inkopolis. For example, the Tea VS Cocoa Splatfest only featured Rising Tide. Both groups have setlists now, and cross-group Splatfests will feature exclusive collaborations and mashups.

Each day of the Splatfest will have what is known as a Bonus Weapon. Bonus Weapons are regular weapons that, if used during the Splatfest, will increase the amount of Super Sea Snails you receive at the end of the Splatfest.

In addition, the results formula for Splatfests has been updated. Popularity plays a key role, and is arguably more important than either of the other two aspects. Wins now encompasses both Solo wins and Group wins. Mirror matches have no effect on wins, but do affect Dedication. This statistic is determined by how many hours are put into Splatfest Battles relative to the amount of votes it received.

Splatfest Events

A few Splatfests will be celebrated as Events, much like Splatoween and Spring Fest in Splatoon 2. These events see Inkopolis and its battle areas redecorated for the duration of the event. It's also highly likely that there'll be exclusive items or weapon skins. And Rising Tide or Radio-Octave might even have unique onstage outfits!

Sunny Fest

Sunny Fest.png
Swimming VS Lounging.pngSun VS Shade.png

The Sunny Fest is celebrated when a heatwave hits Inkopolis, and the sun seems to stay out much longer than usual. It's kicked off with a special Splatfest where all the stages are decorated accordingly, and all take place at sunset instead of night. For the next 5 days after the Splatfest, stages will retain their makeovers, and the sun will be burning even brighter than usual. And to wrap things up, another Splatfest!

Sunny Fest Hats.png
Octo Postcard.pngSquid Postcard.png

The Sunnyfest also brings with it 4 new headwear items! In order, they're the Saltwater Shades, Equinox Blossom, Saturated Sunhat, and the Beach Bowl Cap. These are all created by the Vaykay brand, and won't be available from regular shops, but can be ordered if you see a squid rocking them.

Splatfest Synergy

By filling certain criteria, your Splatfest team will get a unique name! Try mixing and matching weapons and outfits with your friends to create the ultimate Splatfest squad!

Peachy Splat Brella
S2 Brand amiibo.png
The Peachy Splat Brella is a Brella with a unique set of Sub and Special weapons. The Suction Bomb works excellently in tandem with the Brella's launching function for driving foes into one place and splatting them.

Sploosh-o-matic L

The Sploosh-o-matic L is a limited edition version of the Sploosh-o-matic weapon, featuring a green and white colourscheme. The Squee-B allows you to control the area while you build up your Tsunamink special.

Power Egg Blaster
S2 Brand amiibo.png
This exclusive Blaster type weapon was developed by GrizzCo. employees and designed for Salmon Run. Its shots explode with a large radius, but the range of the Power Egg Blaster leaves much to be desired.

Hylian Inkbrush
S2 Brand amiibo.png
The Hylian Inkbrush is simply a reskinned Inkbrush designed after some ancient artifacts. It vaguely resembles a sword, but it's also got some shield design elements. So really, it's anybody's guess what this weapon is supposed to resemble.

Chozo Blaster
S2 Brand amiibo.png
The Chozo Blaster was constructed using materials recovered from a crashed UFO! ...The UFO happened to be an Octarian creation, but it was still a scientific breakthrough! These new materials allowed manufacturers to create the Chozo Blaster, which sports a unique and slick design.

Royal Stamp
S2 Brand amiibo.png
This Stamp weapon is much larger than your average Stamp. It's a bit slower than average, too, but other than it's pretty much a regular Stamp sporting a fancy new design! Send your Squee-B's out into enemy territory while you're out inking elsewhere. They'll never see your Tsunamink coming with this Special charge time!

Labo Light Gun

Splatoon 3 is compatible with the Labo Light Gun. Once you activate the Light Gun while Splatoon is open, you will automatically receive the Labo Light Gun weapon. This weapon allows for a unique control scheme where you can use the Labo Light Gun toycon to aim your weapon.

Due to this weapon having a completely unique control scheme, its playstyle is unique too. It functions as a mix of a Shooter and a Charger, shooting a line of ink. To make full use of the gyro control scheme, the Labo Light Gun comes with Splat Bombs and a Bomb Launcher.

Heartbreaker Sol Dualies

NEO10DO
The Heartbreaker Sol Dualies are... a peculiar kind of Dualie weapons. One Dualie sports an excellent fire rate, but suffers from even lower damage than your average Dualie shot. On the other hand, your other Dualie is a bit slower, but a lot stronger. They're a little odd and take some getting used to, but can be used in tandem with each other.

Sushi Roller

A Roller designed for support. You don't see many of these around, do you? The Sushi Roller has the same stats as your average Splat Roller, but it comes with the Drizzle Disk for you to ink areas that are just out of reach, and the Mist Bomb to keep enemies out of your way.

Edge Undercover Brella

H3R0F0RC3
Modelled after a spear, the Edge Undercover Brella, like other Undercover Brellas, can't fire its canopy, instead acting as a shield while you rapidly fire blasts of ink. Of course, it won't shield you from everything. When your Brella breaks, use your Barnabuckle to swing to safety, and support your team with your Special Weapon!
