Grizzco weapons won't help you if your entire team, you included, just runs directly into a griller because you're not paying attention.

Having good tactics and critical thinking skills has always been more important than raw power in Salmon Run, and this rotation only really reinforces that notion. Case in point, stop opening the gushers on the basket side first, especially when it's high tide!

Seriously. I think I had around 5 max hazard rounds today, and without exception I had an easier time on those than on others with much lower quotas, just because everyone was basically guaranteed to be competent

Hydra Splatling is a monster now.

That extra damage gives it more range in which shots remain a 3/4HKO, and the Autobomb changes gave it an actual sub-weapon. And it synergizes pretty decently with the main weapon too.

What actually determines the hazard level of a room? I haven't seen it any more now that I'm 900-something than when I was on 500 or so. I assume it is rank?

Rank, yes. The average ranks of everyone determines the difficulty level. If the average is 600 in Profreshional, you'll hit Hazard Level Max.

I finally get to partake in this glorious slaughter, and I get two consecutive communication errors then it bans me for five minutes. You know, because there are so many good reasons to intentionally disconnect during salmon run.

Hey, I'm kinda new to this game and the power of the octofro compelled me to get the expansion. I've actually completed most of it but I'm kinda stuck last little bit of rear end in a top hat bonus boss. I can reliably do almost the entire bit until the 5th phase when they start exploding and never stop so my strategy of inking up the arena and herding them into my turf becomes really untenable really fast. I know to do the cover dance, what else should I try?

Also walking out of the metro into the race war splatfest gave me a little whiplash after that sweet ending.

That's fair, but also if you're on poo poo internet that disconnects you every match, I'm not mad that they put you in time out.

Not you specifically, but you get what I'm saying

What worked for me was to clear the area around that one cylinder in one of the corners, you can use that to easily get out of range of the splashdowns and you can also use it to quickly dodge back and forth to box them in your ink.

Other than that, just have good aim and hope the CPU doesn't decide to gently caress you over.

Yeah, I get it, but I don't think the fault lies with my internet on this one.

It WOULD be nice if they had some indication of your connection quality on their end, though...

I'm having trouble with that because they keep chucking walker bombs on top of the cylinder when I do and then things get fucky. Or is that what your talking about when you say hope it doesn't gently caress me over?

From someone who's only been playing since, like, a month before the Octo Expansion dropped, this change is godlike.

Now if only you could see 1. if you already own a piece of gear before ordering it through Murch and 2. see what the standard primary ability of SplatNet gear is before ordering it. Sometimes I'll see someone wearing shoes or whatever with a cool primary, but I'll forget if I have it too and when I pop into the equipment to check and pop back out, they're gone from the Square!

If you don't want to go in the equip mode and reload the square, just check what gear you have at Murch. I usually go into the ability chunk option in case I get a twitchy finger and accidentally reroll/scrub something.

Been thinking of trying to learn a new weapon...the only ones I've had substantial time with are Rapid Blaster (pre buff, I see it a lot more frequently these days) and Tri Slosher. I'm thinking of going hard on the 96 gal deco or maybe a splatling. Any splatling players here have a fave or recommended kit?

Okay, that took a few hours and my hands hurt but I beat the bonus boss!

Is there anyway to unlock new styles for your ink pack or get more pants options? You mostly only have variations of shorts and I liked the look of my remote detonated Kamobo pack.

Also C.Q Cumber should tried in the Hague.

Welp, I worked my way all the way from part timer to profresh 110. I started to feel like I was getting carried at that point, but the numbers usually said I was almost always in first or second when it came to both gold and regular eggs. That feeling happen to anyone else?

I had a profresh run where our team survived a player disconnecting in wave 1 (seriously, that should give a big bonus), and I also had an overachiever run where it was 4 sloshers against grillers - thank woomy for specials when ink ran dry


The next salmon run refresh is going to be such a clusterfuck of deranking
