My disdain for you all knows no bounds.


By the way, if you're the last one alive in Salmon Run and are about to die, throw a Splat Bomb in a dead ally's direction. A wave can't end early until all Splat Bombs go off. You can also end up saving a seemingly hopeless round with the Bomb Rush special that way.

As a first time splatoon player, I find it amazing how many horrible people are who play this game. It's amazing. It's a simple game and yet people are mindnumbingly stupid relative to other games

There are bad players in every shooter it's just a lot easier to tell when they are bad in Splatoon

Holy poo poo the splatbrella owns for splat zones, especially on these maps. You can get the sprinkler up above the zone on both maps, and the special is great for controlling the zones. Also the brella is great defensively in general, it's so good at keeping enemies from pushing in.

Fun things the shield can block:
Ink jet bullets
Splash downs
Pretty much every bomb

It might even block the baller explosion, I haven't tried yet. It's super great at holding a position!

Too bad brellas get shredded by sloshers and blasters. God help them when the ranged blaster gets released.

I did a bit of impromptu and extremely unscientific testing with how Object Shredder interacts with the Brella shield.

Without Shredder, it took four (!!!) full Charger shots to take out the shield. With Shredder, it only took two.

Double damage against the Brella shield seems pretty nice, but there's no telling whether people will keep using the Brella or not, and even if they do, you can always lob a grenade or a bucket full of ink over it instead.

Well now, this certainly raises the profile of the Object Shredder.

Thank you for this. I am always lost on how to use the bomb rush special in Salmon Run since it seems to get overwhelmed easily in the Oveachiever and Profreshional levels with it.

I got two Superbonuses today, and they were four ability chunks each. I can't decide if that sucks or not. Then again, being able to assign a specific sub-ability is really good so it's no wonder they make it very difficult

Strange, it only took 2 Brella shots to break the shield when I was using it. Maybe my opponent was also using object shredder.

I never liked them in Splatoon 1, they were too long distance of a weapon. Blaster is Juuuust the right space to go in close in a pinch but keep people out and bait them. Its a satisfying weapon but my far my favorite maneuver is making people think Im in a bad situation, then using the splash down and then firing in the direction they ran to, killing them instantly with the blaster's damage radius.

A bomb can be more powerful than standard shots depending on your weapon. Also when you're taking eggs back to the basket you can totally afford to toss a bomb at your feet to blow up salmons chasing you. If you aren't making liberal use of bombs then you aren't playing very well. Especially with the charger where bombs are much easier to use and better at clearing out the trash salmon.
