The only paint that matters is horizontal coverage. Painting the walls may increase your team's maneuverability, but it won't increase your score in Turf War.

According to one article, they used their phone as a hotspot and found that it used about 150Mb of data an hour. (actually 153 to be more precise). A Redditor reported yesterday (July 23, 2017) a few sources stating about 135-160Mb an hour. It appears that you can expect about this much data to be used an hour.

So this is called "Freshness", it's your rank for your main weapon. Your Freshness rank increases by 1 when you win a match but decreases by a specific amount depending on your rank. Below is a table with the score you need to get to the next rank as well as the penalty for when you lose (apologies if the table is messy, Stackexchange has no option for ...

Polygon is reporting that there are no rewards: Going through each of these tracks is a pleasure not because of any rigorous gameplay or rad rewards — there are none of the latter

In junction to @Vemonus's answer, the wiki adds a bit different wording plus a nice graph. A Freshness Bonus in Splatoon 2 refers to the proficiency you've earned for each individual weapon. This is different from Judd's coin bonus from the original game. Each weapon has a freshness rating that will improve every time you win a match. It starts at 0 and ...

To unlock the special amiibo sets of gear you need to increase your level in Splatoon to level 7 which unlocks you the shirt of the amiibo sets once you use the amiibo again after getting to level 7. To complete the set you need to get to level 10 and use the amiibo again to unlock the shoes. The Callie and Maria amiibos also include a special requirement ...

Since I own the German version I don't know how it is called in English, but when you stand in front of the building where the Salmon Run is played, you will find a counter to the left of it. There you can pick up your prizes.

Yes, after time runs out, the game will continue to wait for any animations to complete, such as for suction bombs, and add their ink to the final result. This is the same behaviour as the first game.

Digging around on the web, a lot of sites seem to lead to two things: Marina either defected from the Octoling society, or liked the Inkling better, and decided to stay there. A GameFAQ post discusses this a bit. The Sunken Scrolls in Splatoon 2, specifically, the second scroll which depicts the final battle in Hero Mode between Agent 3 and DJ Octavio (...

Profreshional, 99-999 points, 200%-435% pay grade The highest rank title is Profreshional. When you attain that rank, you have a points gauge which appears to max out at 99, but it can in fact be increased all the way up to 999. The pay grade increases along with it, maxing out at 435%. Since with each Salmon Run the gauge resets to 40 points if you are ...

According to one Reddit guide, there are 9 different events. I've summarized and listed them below, but the guide goes into much further detail: Low Tide - the water level decreases and egg collection moves High Tide - the water level increases Fog - visibility is limited. The guide notes that other events can occur during fog Night - Similar to Fog, and ...

After you beat the first boss in Splatoon 2 you should receive a message from Marie and Sheldon that will unlock the ability to upgrade your weapons and gear which is near the start of the first area in Octo Valley. Once you unlock the weapon modification station you are able to use your sardinium and eggs you find during the single player levels to upgrade ...

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 ...

Pearl takes some Money from her Dad. Marina transforms it into CQ points. You get 3000 Ponts and you can continue. But you have to pay it back later.

After having played a few matches: It seems as though you need the majority (75%+) of the Splat Zone. You definitely do not need anyone in it; I took many from overhead. Taking a Splat Zone means that the whole thing will briefly turn to your ink color, entirely (so if it was, say, 95% your ink, it will now be 100%). If the zone is currently controlled by ...

The definition from Inkpedia: League Battle is a multiplayer mode in Splatoon 2. It replaces Splatoon's Squad Battles as an option for co-operative ranked play. In a two hour period, players team up in a group of two or four and compete with other groups to earn as many points as possible. At the end of a two hour period, results will be shown in a ranking ...

Per the reset dialogue with Judd, when you reset to ★1, you retain all of your gear, and all shops will remain available to you. You will also earn a sea snail when reaching level ★2, and every level after. ★1 is effectively just level 100.

In order to unlock the hero weapons for use in PvP you must go through Octo Canyon and complete every single mission and boss with the weapon you wish to unlock. For example if you want to get the Hero Dual Splats, you need to complete every mission and boss with the Dual Splats. After you complete all of the levels with the weapon you will unlock the weapon ...

All that the stars mean is how many slots it comes with. A two star item with an extra slot unlocked is identical to a three star item. Cleaning the abilities on gear does not remove any additional slots you gave it.

By beating every mission in Splatoon 2's Octo Canyon you unlock the hero replica of the weapon you beat all the missions with. The only exception to this is the Hero Brella which isn't released yet and Sheldon tells you that he is currently working on it, meaning this weapon should be released at a future date.

I think the easiest way for somebody new to your Switch system and to Splatoon 2 to experience the tutorial is to create a new user for them. A new user will have his own save when starting splatoon 2 and thus should encounter the tutorial.

Based on multiple complaints and no offered solutions (other than mashing the A button to get through it as quickly as possible or just not turning your game off ever), there does not appear to be a way to skip it entirely (currently). Here's one such example of this kind of complaint: Let us skip the Off the Hook intro every time you turn the game on. ...

If you turn on Airplane Mode, you can skip "Off the Hook" when you boot up the game. This is only useful though if you want to play single-player mode or check out your gear because once you turn off Airplane Mode and connect to the internet, Off the Hook will play once it's connected. Like Vemonus says, the only thing you can do is never close the game; ...

After looking at the inkpedia page on tower control, it says that The tower no longer gains a general speed boost from having multiple Inklings ride it. Instead, the number of Inklings only affects the speed that checkpoints are beaten.

From the Splatoon Wiki The rank meter is represented internally as a number between 0 and 100. The numbers that track filling of the rank meter and those that track cracks are two separate systems; winning matches adds points to the number system that fills the rank meter, while losing adds points to a different number system that contributes to cracks on ...

Swimming in your own ink does indeed recover health more quickly. From the wiki: After taking damage, there is a one second delay before healing will begin. Touching even a small drop of enemy ink on the ground can reset this delay. In kid form, Inklings heal at a rate of 12.5 damage per second. While submerged in ink, Inklings heal at a rate of 100 ...
