Hey game stop giving me Cold Blooded aka The Worst Perk In The Game on literally all of my slots. I dunno if items have predetermined chances for perks or what, but I've got 12 Cold Blooded ability chunks and like 1-3 of everything else, if any.

I checked the app and they dont have a schedule for the Salmon Run today, since it's not open, does anyone know when it's supposed to start up again?

It's basically my favorite part of the game.

I'm Aerospray 4 life because I'm loving terrible at all shooters and would likely lose any 1v1 showdown even with a better gun so I may as well just use the thing that's best for coverage and get hecka money

I'm gonna put on my tryhard source-your-quotes pants for a moment here and say that some of y'all, even the new folks, need to take some time to learn all the weapons to a point of basic competency. I heard a lot of complaining about weapons for today, but I agree entirely with Kraken, this weapon set was an amazing spread of some of the deadliest weapons in the game and there wasn't a single dud in there. Any problems were on the other side of the controller. And yeah, it's tryharding over a transitory internet videogame rank, but the benefit of being higher pay grade and maintaining it is going to make daily farming in the future a lot easier and there's reasons to want to stay up there - so when people don't know how to use basic weapon types and don't seem engaged in doing so, it don't feel great, yo.

I come from the elite line of but I have always owned the Nintendo products, because obviously I am a huge manbaby fan boy. But god drat someone help me fix my horrible gyro aiming. Whenever I have played console shooters in the past I am so used to using the right analog to aim and move the crosshair up and down and left and right. I find myself trying to do that isntead of gyro aiming, and thus being really bad. When I do remember to gyro aim, I overdo it usually and slam it way too far in one direction. Will it just come with time? Any tips? I'm already committed to becoming hooked on this game, because it rules. Just want to be good at some point in the future.

Splat 1 bias. And some frustration from some vets losing Professional to helping out newer players. Feel like there will be a lot more "professional only" groups when Salmon Run isn't up 24 hours.

N-Zap is a great gun. For anyone who isn't quite sure what to play in ranked, remember that the base level 2 Splattershot kit is actually really well rounded. If you get a group with 4 brushes you're going to have problems. Same with aeros or Chargers or anything. Different maps and modes will benefit different weapons (see: Slosher on anything where you have height, brushes on anything with blind corners, etc) but the Splattershot will always be decent - this extends to the N-Zap and Splattershot Jr./Pro as basic "shoot things from medium range" weapons that will excel in all situation while you figure out what specialties you like.

If you want to learn Charger i highly recommend playing with them for a bit in the test range and then going out to Turf War knowing that you will lose a lot while racking up kills. If you are bad with the Charger you will tank ranked hard.

Imagine you're driving a bus or big truck and imagine you're holding the big horizontal wheel of those and how the bus driver uses it. That visualization helped me with left and right gyro aiming at least

Super hyped I was able to pick up a Switch this weekend & this game. Having a ton of fun between all the modes, co-op horde mode is awesome but however ranking up is handled is weird and kinda dumb? Seems like you can't go up when you have someone in you group with a lower rank...but you can go down! Limited windows to play is super dumb though - I didn't realize it was the case till now since it was up when me and my friends all wanted to try it.

I'm not real excited about the toxic mist grenade that the first blaster comes with, but it's so much better for harassing the enemy team. A one-shot kill on a direct hit works out really well for me. I basically use it to ambush people who are trying to sneak around the side routes, and then I clean back up over the ink trail they brought with them.

Single player has some cool moments and some great puns, but is mostly pretty dull. I'm going back for the splattershot P90 and just not even killing enemies as I plow through levels in 2-3 minutes a pop.

Nice to see Profreshional just rises in points - over the weekend I went up to 80 and wasn't sure what was going to happen (before playing with low rank and tanking back to Over Achiever because who the gently caress knows how they calculate group difficulty). Were you getting to 250% with a goon group in comms, or just pubbies? I imagine after a certain point there aren't many pubbies left - we tried to get a 4th at one point and got dropped into a 3 man game because there wasn't anyone at our %.

e; Are there new waves post Mothership? There's nothing else in the manual, but I haven't seen beyond 205%.

I got that high playing with randoms. My matchmaking was almost always super quick, though I did start seeing the same people occasionally. No idea how long that will remain the case.

There are no waves that the manual doesn't detail. However, I think the difficulty of Salmon Run scales infinitely. The higher I get the more the quota and spawn rate rises despite not achieving a new rank.

Cool, I have avoided pubbies pretty hard. If you can get through the 150%ish wall where the non-tutorial things start happening and pubbies just flail there seems to be a pretty good survivor bias of decent players. Interesting that the quotas keep climbing, I know in our group playing yesterday for a while there were a few wave 3's where we hit quota and immediately moved to "stay alive" mode where we just left eggs on the ground and spent the valuable delivery time killing another boss.

Should get in Discord tomorrow afternoon and join a group/comms and get those 1200 points for the day quick and see how high we can ride this poo poo.

Only problem is getting the tower when they're entrenched because you can throw high or you can throw far, but you can't do both.

Some of both. I think most people are making them from scratch or by overlaying a source image on the screen.

Somebody on Reddit recently revealed a program they made that simulates inputs from a fightstick or something over USB to "print" things in splatoon using scripted inputs, though, so at least some of them are probably that.

A few questions:

-Is there a reliable time to know when Salmon Run is online? Or do I need to keep checking the app?
-When can I unlock more slots on my items? As it stands, I'm getting around the 2-slots per item issue by ordering items online.
-How does wiping/applying abilities work? How many times will I need to wipe an ability before I can apply it to new gear?
-When does new gear drop? I've gained a few levels and most the items in my shops are owned.
-Are there any notably good abilities I might not notice? Right now I'm trying to target Sub and Main ink.

From what I have heard there are programs that will pixellate the thing into the proper format, and then they painstakingly enter every pixel using the D-pad. Some have described spending like four hours on them.
