Turf War

Show your true colours!

Claim territory by covering it in ink in heated four-on-four battles. The team that claims the most turf wins! You’ll need to use teamwork and switch tactically into squid form and back again to gain the edge. Get out there and claim your turf!

Two years later…

Welcome to Inkopolis Square!

Two years have passed since the original Splatoon and fashion has naturally shifted too. The place to be is now two subway stations away from Inkopolis — Inkopolis Square.

New ways to splat!

Weapons & gear

Equipping the right weapons and gear can make all the difference in battle. Experiment with a variety of combinations to find the play style that suits you best!

The weapon you’re wielding can be the difference between victory and defeat in a Turf War. This time the two-handed Splat Dualies enter the fray, and you may find familiar weapons that have been remixed in interesting ways…

Splat Dualies

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-1-Screen-01.jpg

A new weapon held with both hands that lets you dodge incoming attacks at high speeds while claiming your territory.

Splat Charger

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-1-Screen-02.jpg

Build up power before firing ink at opponents from a distance. You can also change into squid form and move over a short distance while retaining the charge.

Splat Roller

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-1-Screen-03.jpg

A powerful close-range weapon that allows you to move while covering the ground in ink. Waving theSplat Roller in mid-air fires a thin vertical jet of ink in a straight line.

Slosher

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-1-Screen-04.jpg

This bucket-shaped weapon lets you splash a large volume of ink in a single direction. The handle and suspension have been modified too.

Heavy Splatling

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-1-Screen-05.jpg

A weapon that lets you shoot ink continuously at high speed. It’s been redesigned to make it easier to handle, with the barrel now fitted at a different angle.

Inkjet

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-2-Screen-01.jpg

Take to the skies, spraying ink in your wake and take aim at distant enemies with the attached blob launcher. Attacking from above can be very effective, but it does leave you rather exposed.

Splashdown

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-2-Screen-02.jpg

Jump into the air and strike the ground to release an explosive wave of ink. Use it in combination with a Super Jump and the surrounding enemies won’t know what’s hit them!

Tenta Missiles

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-2-Screen-03.jpg

Lock on to multiple enemies and then fire homing missiles at them. You can launch 16 missiles at the same time, firing up to four missiles at a single enemy!

Sting Ray

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_WeaponsGear_Slider-2-Screen-04.jpg

The Sting Ray fires a pressurised jet of ink in a line, allowing you to hit enemies from a distance. You can change the direction of the jet while firing too!

Team up for

Salmon Run!

There’s a curious new employment agency called Grizzco in Inkopolis Square where you can find a part-time job. It’s dangerous work, though! Work as a team to take out incoming Salmonid and collect the Power Eggs they leave behind. You can then sell these Power Eggs and use the proceeds to pay for enhanced weapons and gear.

Earn funds and have fun with 2-4 players*!

Find gainful employment at Grizzco. Follow the instructions given to you by Mr. Grizz and team up with up to three other players to gather Power Eggs!

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_SalmonRun_Slider-Screen-2.jpg

Your mission is to target the special Golden Eggs of the most dangerous large-scale Boss Salmonid. Gather them and bring them back to the containment unit at the centre of the site.

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_SalmonRun_Slider-Screen-3.jpg

In order to gather Power Eggs, you’ll need to enter the dangerous terrain where the Salmonid live. It’s too dangerous to go alone, so you’ll first form a team of between two and four players.

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_SalmonRun_Slider-Screen-4.jpg

You’ll earn Grizzco Points based on the amount of Power Eggs you collect. You can then exchange these for enhanced weapons and gear. If you’re really good at the job, you may get the chance to take on extra challenges…

Go through a manhole in Inkopolis Square and you’ll find yourself in Octo Canyon, the home of the evil Octarians.

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_HeroMode_Slider-Screen-2.jpg

There are whole new varieties of Octarian that you won’t have seen before. None of them are friendly…

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_HeroMode_Slider-Screen-3.jpg

Get around using all sorts of bizarre contraptions, including the ride rail which lets you jump and fire ink as you travel along it.

CI_NSwitch_Splatoon2_HeroMode_Slider-Screen-4.jpg

The Octarians have been busy developing all manner of new weapons and they’re very keen to try them out on you. Stand your ground and give as good as you get!
