@shadow-wolf There are 2 ways to not die to a Splashdown near you. The first is to move away, swimming is usually fast enough unless you are turning around inside the Splashdown circle. Splashdown does deal massive (albeit not lethal) damage outside the circle too, which can splat you if you've already taken damage. Alternatively, you can splat the player doing Splashdown before they land. If you want to practice this, go for weapons with spread damage, such as brushes or blasters. Do note that while the enemy is airborne ahd stationary they are vulnerable, however once they start to fall they will become invincible. As for superjump Splahdowns, the only thing you can do is move away, which is difficult due to their speed. If you keep getting splatted by superjump Splashdowns, try to be aware of any reckless superjump points from the enemy team. A tip for avoiding Splashdowns, even a tiny bit of cover will protect you from the damage, even if you're inside the circle. Any small corner or terrain difference will completely block the damage. Being familiar with stages so you can seek out small bits of cover in a pinch can definitely help.

@shadow-wolf (enjoy the mention spam) Dodging Tenta Missiles is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Wait for the whistling sound - no need to panic as soon as you're targeted - and then just keep moving until the missiles stop. You don't necessarily need to be swimming at full speed the entire time either. Just be careful not to cross paths with teammates lest you be hit by missiles targeting them.

The instant death hitbox isn't actually that big either; a near miss only does half your health. If you still want to make them a little less threatening you can try using the Bomb Defense Up ability; even one sub slot of that will save you from being two-hit-killed (a one-hit will always be a one-hit, though).

Tentas aren't useless, mind you - they can do some damage if timed well alongside other attacks - but like Green says they just kinda aren't as good as everything else. Even the seemingly tame Ink Storm provides more reliable area control and is safer to use.

Available for online play around 7-10PM UK time most weekdays, whenever on weekends.

Noob question here: How do people get those messages above their head in the hub area?

I believe those are posted to Twitter via the mailbox. My question is "how did people get so dang good at using the clunky drawing tool?!"

@-Green- @Dogorilla @NinjaAceTrainer @Zyrac Thank you all for the advice! I'll use that when I encounter the Tenta Missiles or Splashdowns in the future, or if I use ink mines, toxic mist, or the Goo Tuber.

@FaeKnight Oh OK that makes sense. And yes you're right in that it's absolutely inexcusable that Nintendo doesn't save player rank and level on a server. If they did that (like virtually everyone else does with their online games) then we'd have cloud saves for Splatoon 2.

@FaeKnight I don't get it. An actual twitter? Or an ingame twitter that is pretending to be twitter but only in-game?

@FaeKnight Where do you make the picture? On your Switch? I just looked around everywhere and couldn't figure it out. I must've been missing something. I work with electronics so you'd think I'd be able to make a simple picture and post in a game lol

@MilkBone There's a red mailbox (looks like a red post) near the weapon shop. Interacting with it lets you draw/create an image then post said image to Twitter. To be fair, I stumbled across it by accident a couple days before the splatfest while just goofing off in the plaza.

Use the motion controls for aiming. Once you get use to it (which happens fairly quickly) it's a bit faster then using the right stick to aim. You'll still be using the right stick for faster turns at times though. Also, hit Y to recenter your aim/camera every so often.

In addition, playing through the single player campaign will both help you get use to the motion controls, as well as make you familiar with the various overall weapon types. Not to mention the single player campaign is just well done. And the "octoling fight" single player missions can give you a chance to practice for online matches in a non-competitive arena.

And finally remember that while splatting your opponants in Turf War is a good idea, your main goal is actually to cover ground in ink. So take out the other team when you can, but keep in mind that you also want to be covering as much ground (and walls) with your team's ink color as well. In fact, in a close match a sudden turf inking blitz in the last 30 seconds can be the difference between winning and losing. As such check the map on occasion to see where you'll be most effective.

Also, Splatoon 2 isn't an FPS. It's a 3rd person shooter

Has anyone received the exclusive gear that you get from the 12-month online subscription yet? It's supposed to be sent in an email but I haven't received it yet.

Currently Playing: Pokémon Let's Go Eevee (Switch), Luigi's Mansion (3DS), Earthbound (SNES Classic), New Super Mario Bros U (Wii U)

FaeKnight

I thought that wasn't going to be available till November or December?

Not that I have a 12 month sub yet. Currently it's a 3 month sub that'll run out near the end of December.

@FaeKnight Ah, it's coming in October according to Nintendo's website. I was a little worried it had already been sent out and I'd missed it somehow.

@FaeKnight are you sure walls count in turf war? They don't seem to count for filling special gauge in de weapon testing garage.

toiletduck

FaeKnight

Not sure if they count for turf war %, but they do count for moving around. So you'll be splatting ink on them anyway.

Yeah walls don't count towards the turf covered
