        • This benefit will max out once the counter has reached 30.
        • There are no changes to the benefits this gear ability provides in Turf War matches.
    • Points required for using specials have been changed for certain main weapons.

  • Fixed an issue causing unintended locations to be inked if a Burst Bomb’s explosion directly struck the boundary between two pieces of terrain.
  • Fixed an issue in Inkblot Art Academy causing players Super Jumping to a location near the narrow pathway to the left of the spawn point to mistakenly clip into the stage terrain.
  • Fixed an issue in Kelp Dome in Tower Control or Clam Blitz matches, where dodge rolling in a specific location would cause the player to appear to fall out of bounds and then be splatted.
  • Fixed an issue in Goby Arena causing Squid Beakons placed next to a specific Sponge Block in the stage not to be destroyed when the Sponge Block expanded over them.
  • Fixed an issue related to the Object Shredder gear ability, mistakenly causing its effects to be applied when taking damage from the Rainmaker barrier, or from the Rainmaker’s explosion when its timer runs out.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Thermal Ink gear ability’s effect to activate after destroying an opponent’s Ink Armor with a main weapon, even if that player had taken no damage.
  • Fixed an issue occurring with the Slosher, Slosher Deco, or Hero Slosher Replica equipped, where pressing ZL before the shot is fired after pressing ZR would mistakenly cause the player to immediately change forms.
  • Fixed an issue occurring while using the Bubble Blower special weapon, where pressing ZL before a bubble is fired after pressing ZR would mistakenly cause the player to immediately change forms.
  • When using the Ink Storm, Ultra Stamp, or any of the Bomb Launcher special weapons, pressing ZL before completely entering the “ready to throw” pose after pressing and holding R will now allow players to immediately change forms.
