So is there actually a way to aim the stingray special or is it just garbage

It's more of an aim first, then fire, then stop once your target is lost or dead, then aim again, style weapon because the tracking is super slow while it's firing.

Using the brush as a weapon means showing up at an angle that the enemy doesn't expect because you can move at really good speeds in enemy ink. Add to that the fact that you're going to win a fight if you come within stabbing distance of your target. So, ideally you'll want to come at unsuspecting targets from the side or back without them knowing. you're pretty fragile though, and if they see you coming, you might want to change strategy. Fortunately, you are also the best at escaping harrowing situations since you can run on enemy ink if you have enough ink yourself. The key is knowing when you should live to splat another day and fall back. That said, if you get really good at zigzagging, you might be able to close in on your target and spat him anyway if he's spotted you but is alone.

This is pretty much it. Think of brushes as the assassin "class" or whatever of Splatoon. You have very short range so trying to engage someone head-on is foolish, but your superior mobility allows you to easily escape fights and ambush people from unexpected angles. Ninja squid is extremely good for brush users as the hit to swim speed doesn't matter much for them and allows you to move unseen through ink for surprise attacks.

I'll play with goons at any rank in Salmon Run. If I drop or anything I'm confidant I can work myself back up pretty easily

S'all about fun. Just be aware the difficulty will be at Overachiever unless we bomb super hard and I derank. After talking with some friends and watching videos I can confirm the difficulty is set to whoever the highest in the room is.

I'm so glad I stuck with motion controls. It took me a solid day to not be horrendous with them, but now I'm frequently top of the scoreboards: I shouldn't have doubted the goons :<

What's the best way to play handheld? Motion control enabled has my camera always pointing at the sky due to how I hold the Switch. Using the sticks works fine but surely there's a trick to getting handheld working nicely portable.

I can't get it to go either, I just have to hold it the way it wants me to. Set sensitivity to maximum imo

Nope, it just lurks there. Completely harmless.

Well, it is uphill from now on hopefully?



Also is the invidual "p" value after match only based on ground covered? I seem to get top spot on our team 70% of the time because I compulsively fill out inkless corners?

Sadly it only goes so far. I think they assumed everyone would be playing this game with the controller or joycons instead of handheld

I got a round of glowflies when I had the charger. The whole team was at the bow of the ship so all the salmons came in straight lines, it was great

Hope I can grind out the super-rewards for this after work. Despite salmon run not being available all the time, I like it because it encourages me to play. I probably would've played like once and then focused on Turf otherwise

This is the reason why they limited the availability. The rewards and timed rotation make it feel special so people play it when it's up
