Splatoon has a decent splattering (sorry) of modes nowadays, with frequent updates over the course about three months adding plenty of content. A recent addition was the Rainmaker mode in Ranked Battles, in which you try to take possession of the powerful relic and progress into the opposition's territory.

For those that like a little cultural education with their gaming, there may be interest in the origins of the relic's design and the mode's name. In a series called 'Culture Shock' on the YouTube channel The Game Theorists, this very topic is explored. This isn't the first video in this rather neat series, but is certainly interesting in terms of shedding light on the history and cultural relevance of the mode.
