Version 3.0 brings a lot of exciting news!
After downloading the Version 3.0 update to Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch system, players will have access to a huge amount of new content. This includes the addition of more than 100 pieces of new and returning gear, new songs, the introduction of a challenging new X Rank for the top-performing players in Ranked Battle, weapon balance adjustments, and the return of Callie of the famous Squid Sisters.
Here’s a look at some of the brand-new items being added along with gear that appeared in the first game:
Plus, a batch of several weapons will now be added once a month instead of the ol’ “once a week” schedule that was happening. Version 3.0 also brings the return of the Camp Triggerfish stage (details below), as well as these new weapons:
Neo Splash-o-matic with Burst Bombs & Suction-Bomb Launcher
Foil Squeezer with Splat Bomb & Bubble Blower
New Squiffer with Autobomb & Baller
Glooga Dualies Deco with Splash Wall & Baller
Here are some details about other recent updates to Splatoon 2:
The Neo Sploosh-o-matic has the same close-combat functionality as the Sploosh-o-matic, but with a neat, custom look. Some may even say that it has a neo look, ha! A good kit for strategists, this kit also comes with the Squid Beakon sub weapon to help your teammates Super Jump in, and Tenta Missiles to lay down covering fire.
The H-3 Nozzlenose D is a version of the H-3 Nozzlenose with the same stats, but new flair. This is very handy when showing it off to your friends. Rounding out the kit are Suction Bombs and Ink Armor to help the fortitude of your fellow squid-mates.
We’ve put the “ink” in “Zink”! The Zink Mini Splatling has the same stats as the Mini Splatling but comes with a unique look. This kit also contains Curling Bombs (which allows you to quickly reach the front lines) and the Ink Storm special (which helps with your team’s mobility). With this delightful combination, it’s a good kit for those more mobile-minded Splatling users.
The Sorella Brella is a polka-dotted wonder with the same stats as the Splat Brella, but just look at that style! Nothing spotty about it…besides the spots. Rounding out the kit are Autobombs to find lurking opponents, and the Splat-Bomb Launcher to help push the front lines forward. This kit is recommended for aggressive players who want to support their team.
The Tri-Slosher Nouveau has the same stats as the Tri-Slosher, but comes with an exclusive sticker (and looks rather smashing if I do say so myself). This kit also comes with Splat Bombs and the Ink Storm special…two ways to make your opponents scatter. It’s a great kit for those who love being a team player.
Through careful deductive processes, we can glean that the Custom Range Blaster is a “Custom” version of the “Range Blaster.” Hah, science is truly wondrous! This new weapon has the same stats as the Range Blaster, but also comes with Curling Bombs and the Bubble Blower: two great ways to pin down the enemy. This kit is great for players who want to lock down the battlefield.
Piranha Pit, located in a mysterious quarry, is famous for its industrial style and tricky conveyor belts. It’s hard to convey just how important the conveyor belts are, but you can experience it for yourself. Wapow!
As we mentioned above, the Version 3.0 update brings with it the return of the Camp Triggerfish stage! This wooden fort is situated in the middle of a lake: the perfect place for splatting in the great outdoors. You can prepare for fresh air, team building memories, and (hopefully not) falling in the lake…
