Splatoon 2 - Best Tips, Tricks, And Winning Strategies
Learn all of the best tips and gameplay strategies for Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch.
The original Splatoon released for the Wii U in 2014 and became breakout success in the online shooter genre. Fortunately for the game's fans, Splatoon 2 brings that same frenetic ink-slinging action to the Nintendo Switch alongside loads of new weapons and enhancements. There are so many different gameplay modes and other unlockables that players could easily get lost in the mess of it all — don't fret, however, for we've got all of our best and most useful Splatoon 2 guides featured in one convenient location below. Keep reading to discover all of the best strategies, tips, stats, and walkthroughts for Splatoon 2.
General Tips For Splatoon 2
• Staying in cover is more important than ever. Players can activate squid mode over any surface that's been painted their team's color and dip away from any dangerous situations. As a bonus, swimming in squid mode is faster than running, allowing players to quickly traverse levels or escape threats.
• Use the single-player campaign mode to get a feel for the game. Players who want to make the most out of Splatoon 2's online bouts can use the single player mode to learn each map and discover which weapons, sub-weapons, and special abilities work best for them.
• Much like with the previous title, Splatoon 2 can be played on the go. Naturally, the Switch has a greater reach than the Wii U gamepad did, so players can continue their campaign anywhere they like or even hop into online matches at any location with wireless internet access.
