I've used 3 tickets, and none of them actually loving rolled the ability for the drink.

I leveled a Krak-on hat with swim speed drink up TWICE and didn't get a SINGLE SWIM SPEED.

I thought I was good at Salmon Run for getting to Profreshional and never dropping on Freelance, this weapon set has taught me otherwise.

Man, people weren't kidding with this Salmon Run loadout. First time I've ever gotten 0 eggs due to a Wave 1 High-Tide Rush where everyone split up for some reason? Still it's not unbearably bad if everyone can use the weapons decently, but you really need the E-liter to be on point for Steelheads and the N-Zap or Brush for Stingers. Worse thing for me today was several times when I had the E-liter and no one was taking out Stingers so I had to go after them myself, which is not efficient.

Any advice on using the Sting Ray during non-mothership waves? Every time I try to use it to take out a Flyfish a Stinger or other boss will blindside me. Once you've started firing if green ink gets under your feet it seems like you're screwed.

I don't understand how to use the brella but I've consistently placed first in most matches with it so maybe it's good???

Someone made a good post about using the Inkstorm and Umbrella shield in Tower Control earlier. However, other the riding the tower the shield always seems to come out too slow for me. Mostly I've used it just as a shotgun. Any advice for using the shield in a firefight or strategies for launching it ?

Quite the opposite in my experience. They should be better at coverage than most weapons since they have a wider spread and a decent fire rate.

The main issue with the Eliter in Salmon Run is that it really needs a babysitter. That charge time is brutal.

It has super long range so no not really. Its bad if you're getting overwhelmed but you don't need someone constantly guarding you if you are positioned properly.

To people entering S+ : poo poo gets super real. It's a monumental jump in difficulty from S to straight S+. Expect to be flanked at all times, and expect to fight people who can actually aim. Know the range of your weapon and be very thorough with your map awareness.

I got kicked out of S+ on Rainmaker but I'm holding on in Splatzones... with a Blaster of all things but gently caress.

I pretty much never use the shield, maybe launch it and ride its wake to get behind people? Ninja squid may not be necessary.

Use the shield to juke and annoy your opponents. That's what people in S+ do anyway. Flank behind you, pop you with a weak squirt then shield up any retaliation to distract you.

I embarrassingly found that out a while ago. He basically says something like "Zero?! Maybe I should make you reread the training manual." He's not as livid as you'd expect.

It's interesting that the training manual levels just push you along even if you suck dick. It scoots you along while actively mocking you even. It's the exact opposite experience I used to have with games like PS1's Driver where "Hey, watch the paint!" is all you heard for hours until you could get out of that god-forsaken parking garage if you sucked at the game at first.


"hey man, okay okay okaaay!!"


"Maybe I'll give you a call when I need a ride to the grocery store!"

I don't think these kind of games usually have characters get actively angry even at your miserable failure. Probably because they don't need to encourage the players to take it out on each other, the Switch, nearby pets and loved ones, etc.
