Update contents

Changes to stages

  • Arowana Mall: Changes the layout in all modes to prevent users from travelling in an unintended way at a specific location.
  • Camp Triggerfish: Changes the layout in Turf War and Splat Zones to prevent users from travelling in an unintended way at a specific location.

Changes to main weapons

  • Rollers: Corrects an issue introduced in version 2.0.0 that affected camera movements while moving with the roller raised.

Changes to sub weapons

  • Splash Wall: Corrects an issue where throwing a bomb while touching the opposing team's Splash Wall would occasionally damage opposing players on the other side.

Changes to Ranked Battles

  • Tower Control: Fixes an issue where the distance counters would display the same number when the scores were very similar.
  • Tower Control: Corrects the behaviour of the distance counter when the tower is taken by the other team, having reached the same distance as the opponents but not overtaken them. (In version 2.0.0, the team in the lead lost one distance point, but in version 1.3.0 and earlier the team in the lead gained one distance point.)

Other changes
