Am I misunderstanding how Ink Armor works? Just popped it in a 1v1 firefight and then died in one hit from an N-Zap.

It doesn't activate immediately. You have to wait a second or two for it to kick in

It's not nearly as good as the bubbler was. It's got a powerup delay, so you can't just twitch-trigger it when you get ambushed.

Yeah, ink armor is definitely something you try to pop a second before engaging someone. If they're already on top of you you're probably too late.

Is there anything of significant merit to beating the single player campaign with every weapon or am I just putting my effort into crusty sean tickets?

There is no reward beyond the hero weapon skins and the tickets

I understand the Switch app is not all that great, it may have sync issues, but it says that I only cleared up to Sector 2 of singleplayer when I have actually beaten all levels and collected all scrolls and sardinium. This is opposed to my multiplayer stats which appear to be properly synced.
It's a rather insignificant thing, but is anyone else having this issue?

There's a refresh button which syncs instantly for me. Open the extended singleplayer stats, then hit it

You only need to complete the campaign with the weapon you want to use. They're still restricted by level and the umbrella isn't available

I like the supers in this game because I have a jetpack and two guns and i'm basically boba fett, seafood edition.

Going to work on getting chunks for the special points up and special loss on death down and be in the air all the time.

I survived it once. When one of the other guys got targeted and he immediately went to the center of the map where you can keep it going in circles instead of just running around randomly I almost cried from happiness.

Wasn't really enjoying the game because of tilt controls, and then I did some single player and a bunch of Salmon Run and suddenly I have the skills to pay the bills. Went from losing twice as much as I won in Turf Wars to winning a whole lot and carrying my team by wide margins. It's really impressive how Salmon Run teaches you the core principles of doing well in this game a lot better than anything else. Switching to the Tentatek Splatters also really helped. Such nice guns.

now i am just frustrated my fashion is bad i don't need good gear i just wanna look s t y l i s h.

Once you're 10+ you should be doing ranked modes since those give you way more XP than Turf War. I went from 14-18 in a couple hours last night.

Salmon Run rules simply because it forces you to use and understand how different weapons work. 99% of the time in games like this people just get good enough with something they consider easy (Aerospray???) and then just main that 24/7 because they're either too lazy or too stupid to try out other stuff.

I fired up the game for a few minutes for morning tea friday (australia) and there was a level twenty character in the hub. How much time did the press have to play before release?

it's a dumb thing but sometimes i have ranked anxiety and just can't really bring myself to play it, it comes and goes, i played a bunch of tower control yesterday and had a good time but just don't really have the heart for it right now

that said is ranked really that much faster? don't you basically get no exp for a loss, especially if you got KO'd? i wouldn't expect to get KO'd every game nor KO every game but assuming like at least a 50% winrate i'm not sure what ranked averages out to exp wise
