“It’s a very slow weapon, but to make up for that it offers a large amount of paint and AoE support. It can work well with a large variety of teammate weapons and can also offer a more aggressive playstyle once control has been secured. It is also just very satisfying to land multiple direct shots onto someone and/or hit players in positions that would otherwise seem safe such as behind large walls.”
Your favourite Splatoon music?
It is amazing how much range of music there is in the Splatoon games. A variety of music is made by different in game music bands and artists which all have different styles to them. We asked the community what their favourite Splatoon music tracks are.
Mei’s favourite music track is the iconic Splattack from the original Splatoon.“It is the original song for the entire series and is always the one I default to in my head whenever I hear the term ‘Splatoon music’.”
This is also Matthew’s favourite track. They also like Chopscrewey and Seafoam Shanty are big favourites for me. In addition, Sea Shanty is Xan’s favourite track too.
A lot of players like Chopscrewy by Sashimori. Players IPS, Spore and Camexrn all said Chopscrewey is their favourite music track.
It seems a large amount of players were stuck on this question since there are many squidtastic tracks from the games. TomLegend said there are “many choices, but here’s 3. Shark Bytes, Ink Me Up and Bomb Rush Blush.”
Welshey’s favourite tracks are Metalopod from Splatoon and Seasick from Splatoon 2.
Kat and Melvo listed tracks which can be found in the story mode. Kat’s music they like is I am Octavio, the final boss music from the original game. Melvo’s is Maritime Memory which is the staff credits music from Splatoon.
Metroid9’s favourite track is Ebb and Flow by Off The Hook which is used during the Splatoon 2’s Splatfests. Finally, Ink or Sink is Inkling Splash’s favourite track while Cyberbrick’s favourite music is from Chip Damage by The Chirpy Chips.
