Splatoon has been updated to Version 2.4.0 with the arrival of new Piranha Pit and Ancho-V Games maps.
Their tweaks will improve matchmaking, introduce new prohibited areas on maps in Rainmaker mode, and address shortcuts that players have discovered on certain maps.
Matchmaking Adjustments: In Regular Battle and Splatfest, players of similar skill will be matched more often.
Rainmaker Adjustments: Added prohibited areas in Walleye Warehouse, Saltspray Rig, Arowana Mall, and Flounder Heights in Rainmaker mode.
When players enter the prohibited area while carrying the Rainmaker, the amount of time they are allowed to hold the Rainmaker will decrease faster as a penalty.
Stage Adjustments: Arowana Mall: Adjustments will be made to prevent users from taking certain shortcuts in all modes.
Port Mackerel: Adjustments will be made to prevent users from taking certain shortcuts in all modes.
Flounder Heights: Adjustments will be made to prevent users from taking certain shortcuts in all modes.
Museum D’Alfonsino: Adjustments will be made to prevent users from taking certain shortcuts in Rainmaker mode.
- Fix the issue in Rainmaker mode in which the countdown moves more than usual when a player gets the Rainmaker in the air.
- Fix the issue in Rainmaker mode in which the bombs’ blast waves inflict damage on the Rainmaker shield even when there are obstacles between the bomb and the shield.
- Fix the issue in Rainmaker mode in which Splash Walls placed near each other by the same team take damage when one of them blocks an ink splat.
- Fix the issue in which bombs that are thrown near a wall do not fly straight and makes contact with the wall.
Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.
Splatoon Gears Up With Tri-Slosher Nouveau.
Inklings can gear up with another new weapon, with Nintendo restocking Splatoon‘s Ammo Knights with the Tri-Slosher Nouveau.
“The Tri-Slosher Nouveau features snazzy decorations selected by the manufacturers themselves,” shares Ammo Knights owner Sheldon. “Combined with the Seeker Sub weapon, this setup’s ability to apply pressure is its strongest selling point! Gather your allies around, activate the Echolocator, and push the enemy back in one fell swoop!”
