I think I'm in love with the dual pistols a little bit. "Hello, would you like a broad spread SMG or a laser accurate rifle today?"

yeah I meant money/xp. So just use the coupons immediately when you get em eh

They last for X rounds so there's no gaming the system really. I like it. Its simple.

Do the meal tickets stack so I can have cash and xp up at the same time, or a 50% and 100% meal for 150%?

Or is it one at a time and they overwrite the last one.

This is a solid question, I was wondering the same.

How do you switch weapons in single player? Sheldon showed up and told me to borrow weapons from him in single player which would let me unlock them for multi-player but I don't see how to do that. His shop just tells me I have to level up in multiplayer before I can buy anything (I'm away from Wi-Fi for a bit so I can't)

I think you gotta beat a certain number of levels before he actually gives you more.

I would love to see one of the old stages return as a Salmon Run map. Saltspray Rig is probably the most thematically appropriate, but really any of them would be nice.

Balloons are for kill confirms.

Only they realized that kill confirms were insanely good, and removed balloons from all weapons that you could kill confirm on in Splatoon 2. (I assume?)

I've never played a splatoon but due to being desperate for switch content I picked this up. What is the most obnoxious weapon for the other team to use?

LethalGeek posted:

Man the brush is no joke anymore. Roller changes are great. Pretty happy with all the weapons. Balloons are kinda weak because in the last game they were stupidly OP and a big part of the reason damage up has been removed. That was really stupid and glad it's gone.

It's neat to hear different perspectives on the changes for Splatoon 2. I think the most visible one for the multiplayer is all the new specials, but the kind of tweaks done for other weapons like these above are really interesting. Does anyone know if all the balance changes for weapons from Splatoon 1 to Splatoon 2 are documented somewhere?

Also in the original Splatoon I tried all the different weapons but ended up really sticking with different varieties of shooters the vast majority of the time. This time I'd like to make more of an effort to get good with the major different types, like rollers and chargers. Currently getting owned as a roller though (and haven't even touched chargers in multiplayer yet) and feeling bad if I'm dragging teams down even if it's just Turf War. Any advice or ways to get good other than just trying and failing repeatedly?

Practice Practice Practice. Turf war is where you go to learn weapons you're bad at so nah go ruin a few matches while you're figuring it out. I never really moved on from shooters, blasters, or buckets myself. The rest require a sense of patience and timing I simply don't have lol. Rollers, Brushes, and Chargers are a lot more GOTCHA where the goal is to more sneak up on them. The ones who get good at it force the other team to have to play less aggressively because you never know when one is going to pop up behind some box and WHAM.

i've never understood the "ugh this sequel is like the game it's a sequel too " crowd. like, it's a sequel, i'd expect it to be like the previous game

if you want a different game from something, why are you buying a game named "Something 2"???

You're forced to use a specific weapon in SP in some stages until you beat it once.

I forgot how much the N-Zap '85 owns.

Does anyone know how to make 3 star items appear in the shops? In the app I've seen 3 star for clothes and shoes but not head gear. In the game I've yet to see 3 star gear in the shops. Mainly 1 star with a couple of 2s.

Is the Ninja Squid perk not in this one?

The game came out a day ago, so you're probably getting schooled by people who reached level 10 but haven't had time to get up to A or S rank yet. Things will cool down.

IMO Salmon Run is worth the price of admission alone, especially if they update it with more content. Its so much fun even with randoms.
