Don't fire the rainmaker unless you really have to. Shooting the rainmaker puts your location on the maps and huds of the other team.

They can always see you since you glow when you have the rainmaker. You can see the glow all the way across the map.

The more people are on the tower the faster it moves. Don't jump off just because someone else showed up on it.

At least in the Bs, you're more liable to get your entire team splatted by a brush, bucket, or roller if everyone is on it. Most of my wins in solo queue have been 2 people standing on it and two on the ground guarding and inking the area

The Rainmaker is a great weapon for controlling the enemy team's approach. I don't think that's good advice at all.

Jumping off the tower to flank and kill the players attacking it (especially if the tower lets you get to useful high ground you couldn't otherwise reach) is often better than making it move faster into a meatgrinder. It's situational.

There is nothing worse in Turf War than to join a new lobby and have 3 chargers load up on your team. Great job getting a couple kills from near our spawn, guys, too bad you didn't paint a loving thing.

Soooo - how does Rainmaker work. 4 games later, and I still don't truly 'get' it.

You pick up the football and you score a touchdown.

If neither team gets a touchdown, team that got closest to a touchdown wins.

Oh and the football is a gun.

It generally is. Shooting the rainmaker means you're not moving as fast as you could. Generally your temamates should be killing and painting ink roads for you and you should just focus on running the ball if you have the ball.

That said, at times if your'e surrounded or if the path ahead isn't inked, you do need to hold back and fire off a few shots.

And intentionally firing the rainmaker into a wall causes a big explosion which is good for taking out nearby enemies.

I wonder if the tickets in the actual levels themselves reset. They do take more effort to get to, but could still potentially be farmed.

I tried it, they seem to be there but grabbing them again when they're greyed out doesn't seem to actually give you another ticket. Working as intended.

It was just the overworld ones that were bugged.

If I really liked the Tentatek Splattershot as well as both its sub and special, what would be a similar weapon I can try out? I got to Fresh with it finally and am looking for something new. N-Zap seems OK so far. I did not at all like the Splattershot Pro, it didn't ink enough and I didn't really like it's special. Sub was OK. I'm only level 10 right now, so I'm fine sticking with the N-Zap for a while until something I like better unlocks.

Dualies also get the tentacles super and are pretty similar to a splattershot, slightly better at closer range and you get a dodge move.

Aerospray is an amazing painter for turf war and has good range for kills, but the super is kinda weak to balance.

It kinda depends upon if you're playing turf war or ranked, and which ranked mode. Some guns are better at some things than others. Blasters and chargers aren't great at painting but get kills like nobody's business.

And try weird things like the roller or the chaingun, you never know.

well why not

The aerospray is awesome for turf war in my experience. True that the super is weak at splatting baddies, but if you spam it (and pair with some special boosting kit) you can actually get quite a bit of coverage out of the curling bombs as they just go everywhere.

You only need one squid riding the tower, everyone else should quickly cover the surrounding areas with ink and push forward into enemy territory. Ideally you want to hold the other team off from getting anywhere near the tower itself rather than hanging out around it.

Curling Bomb Rush is really good especially in the levels with a raised central area

Yeah there's absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of situational awareness.

I don't think there's any situation that calls for more than two people on the tower though. Maybe if the whole enemy team has been wiped out and you really want to rub it in near the goal.

The good thing about video games (if not in fact everything else in the world) is that people can choose to do whatever they wish with them. If that's what people find fun, let em. Sure beats being a grouch on the internet about how someone you don't know spends their time.
