I'm playing as a ninja squid, but for some reason some people still see me while hiding in ink.

Is it possible to see a ninja squid hiding with normal weapons?

    If you are swimming up a wall you will still kick up ink.

Ninja Squid means opponents cannot see your squid's movement or surface ripple in your own ink. However there are several things that bypass this:

  • Getting hit by a weapon will give your opponent a very noticeable sound and screen effect, alerting them to your location
  • Accidentally moving into enemy ink
  • Any sort of effect that reveals your location, such as with a Point Sensor or Thermal Ink (indicated by a dark grey transparent squid circling around you)
  • Swimming up walls (thanks @LyricsBot)
  • Popping up out of the ink for any reason, such as leaping up after going up a ramp
  • Your opponent just guessing and getting lucky

    I'm pretty sure you leave a very faint trail as you swim. This is most noticeable on perfectly smooth, flat, inked surfaces. Good players may be able to spot you because of this.

  • I believe Josh is correct. Secondly, someone in a tube video asserts that you make a slight sound; I think that might be true also.
