Topic: How many times did it take you to beat Splatoon 2's hard final boss, Inner Agent? aka Secret Final Boss

I'm curious to hear how many times it took for people to beat the Octo Expansion secret hard boss. Not really secret, but it is hard.... for a lot of people. Most people? I anticipate some superhuman here will say they beat it quickly. There's nothing wrong with beating it quickly, taking longer than me, or not being able to beat it all. It's generally regarded has hard, and I'm curious to hear how long it took for people.

I think it took me 100-150? times to beat the inner agent. Whatever it was, it was a lot. I kept trying and getting demoralized, and trying again weeks or months later. I got so used to losing that I was shocked when I beat it last summer. That may sound weak or respectable depending on how good you are at Splatoon. I had to have the gold pin. And I never use it, now that I have it

TonesBalones secret inner agent battle, hard boss(Games Done Quick Octo Expansion speedrun). The pasted link goes straight to the battle. (If you haven't seen this full speedrun of octo expansion, its entertaining. TonesBalones is a pretty likable guy. Watched it more than once, myself) **Also, TonesBalones mentions good tips throughout the battle, if you are stuggling to beat this boos.

@Octane did you play & beat Octo Expansion? This hard boss isn't really secret, but you have to beat Octo Expansion to access it, and people call it secret. Also it is hard.

@Octane You beat the Octo single player campaign. Nice. If you're still into Splatoon, I say this with a chuckle, go give the secret hard boss a try Go to those lockers in the subway station. See what the fuss is about While I thought it was hard, I kept going back. If you clicked the video above you'll see where the lockers are just before TonesBalones plays the hard boss.

@New_Guest Maybe you know, single player campaign is also a tutorial. So, progressing through that will bolster your online battle skill.

I'm pretty sure it was nearing a hundred. Completely un-fun. No joy was felt after beating this boss.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

Yea i know that but i just want to get to a higher level to get access to more weapons, i still havnt found one that really satisfies me

It takes a lot of time

@New_Guest Yeah, playing online battles is the fastest way to rack up points to level up. You have to get to level 30 to get all the weapons, I think? Weapons are great. If you start getting bored, you can learn a new weapon. Sometimes weapons you don't like become one of your favorites. I've watched ThatSRB2Dude on youtube for weapons analysis/reviews.

Just to make sure you know, drinks & food from Crusty Sean(food vender in Inkopolis) give you point multipliers for level you up faster. Food point multipliers(1.5x, 2x, etc) and last 20 battles. The drinks increase the odds of getting certain ability chunk powers; But they also level you up faster, but not as much as the food can. (also only last 20 battles).

@New_Guest The orange N-Zap gun is still one of my favorites.
-If I'm getting crushed, the walking bombs are great for anti-sniper protection. If you've been getting sniped repeatedly, you can toss the walking bomb at the sniper's location, and the sniper will have to move to avoid the bomb. Many times they have to expose themselves to move, and you can shoot them. You can also throw walking bombs ahead to uncover enemies in the ink, even if they are around a corner.

-While aiming the Tenta Missles, you can see where all the enemies are. Definitely pan all over the map with the tenta missles before firing. Sometimes I only pull out the tenta missles to see where the enemies are. You still have to fire it though.

Honestly it wasn’t too hard for me

Why are you still here?

@New_Guest You get super sea snails every time you level up from levels 1-8? Then they stop. But they resume at level 20? and after that they always give you one each time you level up. No idea why there's a gap. You could also win the snails if you played in Splatfests, but they stopped running Splatfests -they were a themed weekend every month or so, and they were very fun. Most everyone is dying for a new Splatoon in hopes for more Splatfests.

I got no shell leveling up so far, im at 12 and im afraid i wont be able to upgrade my gear

I know what are Splatfests i played them on the orignial Splatoon, i played it a lot or at least i thought i had until i saw your hours

@New_Guest Yeah, it's disappointing Nintendo didn't patch in a way to get super sea snails faster to make up for Splatfests ending. I brought the point up on NL, here, and someone reacted like I was making an issue out of nothing. But I do sympathize with you, it is slower without splatfests.

Looking around for info, it might be that you have to reach level 30 to start getting super sea snails every time you level up. But I seriously think, there is a point in the game before level 30 that Judd or someone in the game gives you a handful of sea snails. MAYBE at level 15?? if you haven't gotten that handful already. I'm surprised at how hard it is to find details for when snails are earned.

When they award a super sea snail for leveling up; In Inkopolis square, you'll see a white dialog bubble with a big red exclamation point hover over Judd, the referee cat, next to the doors of the lobby. Talk to him. If he's got a shell for you, he gives you the snail. If he doesn't have super sea snails to give, he will give you game tips. Forgive me if you know any of this already, just being thorough. Since forum replies can take hours or much longer, I error on being thorough, so don't take it in a negative way.

Have you opened all the "Squid research lab" channel news tiles? Find the news channel make sure you're following it. Depending on how much is still on the server, you can get Squid Research Lab news tiles going back months or longer. It is in your interest to check, and open each tile, if you haven't already.

Some news tiles give you 10 ability chunks, possibly a couple pieces of gear. If they go back to the summer, you can get some gear, like that chrome helmet with the animated face. That helmet is called the something-"eye".

Thats a good idea i totally forgot about the news channel. I'll look into that

Thanks

I just hope i didnt loose my shells for not paying attention to Judd

Edit : Seems you get a super sea snail every time you win 30 battles, im pretty sure i won more than that though so i dont know

Edited on by New_Guest

New_Guest

Woomy_NNYes

@New_Guest You never lose shells. Don't worry about that. If you neglected to pick them up, Judd holds onto them until you get them. At maximum, I think he can only give them out 9 at a time. So, If Judd gives you 9 at once, talk to him again to see if he gives you more.

I think the "30 battles" thing is a one-time milestone. I'd love to be wrong, because if I'm wrong, then maybe you'll earn super sea snails faster.
