How to use the Splatoon 3 QR code
The latest Splatoon 3 QR code came from the Japanese Splatoon 3 Twitter account, leading many non-Japanese speakers to wonder how to redeem the thing
It's not something you can just scan with your phone's camera: not via your usual camera app, anyway.
Instead, it's a code you need to scan using the SplatNet 3 app. And, to make matters more confusing, the SplatNet 3 app isn't something you'll find on the Google Play or Apple App Store either.
By downloading the Nintendo Switch Online app and logging into the same Nintendo account you use to play Splatoon 3 on your console, you'll be able to fire up the SplatNet 3 app within and scan the Splatoon 3 QR code through it instead.
What does the Splatoon 3 QR code give?
Though reports are scarce at the moment, including whether or not anyone outside of Japan can redeem the Japanese code, it's been suggested that the new Splatoon 3 QR code gives an exclusive design plate for your character.
This is backed up by a rough Google translation of the tweet as well, so there's no new Splatoon 3 clothes to get out of this one right now.
Where is my Splatoon 3 QR code reward?
Just scanning the Splatoon 3 QR code isn't enough to actually get the reward it offers. Once you've done that, you need to head to the terminal in the Bangkara Street lobby in-game to claim your prize.
And, with that, you should know everything there currently is to know about the Splatoon 3 QR code situation. We expect more Splatoon 3 codes to drop throughout the game's life, so keep checking back here to easily see any new ones. Maybe they'll even give new Splatoon 3 hairstyles in the future.
