There is going to be a HUGE influx of newcomers to Splatoon 2 now that it has released on the Nintendo Switch, because let’s face it, the first installment was a great game on a console that not many people owned. With the Switch taking the gaming world by storm, now is a great time to buff up on those skills and be the best competitive Splatoon 2 player you can be.
Always Keep Moving
In Splatoon 2, your main goal is usually to cover the playing field in ink, and regardless of what weapon you have you’re going to need to make sure that you don’t stop in one spot to cover it. Strafing keeps you on your toes and helps cover areas as you move forward, and ensures you’ve also got all sides covered as you splash your colours around.
BUT, for those of you who aren’t aware, your weapons and special attacks rely on that ink to keep working! Not only do you move faster as a squid compared to your Inkling form, but you charge up your valuable ink reservoir when you do this, meaning you’re always ready for an attack! Just make sure you’ve got your eyes forward though, because if the opposition catches you out in this form, you’ll get splattered and have to respawn!
