Help out allies whenever you see them trying to advance through enemy territory by aiming at their feet and firing as much ink as possible as doing so will release your beleaguered ally and also gain more territory for your team.


Remember when you are inking that covering the enemy ink with your own is always preferable to covering bare, unclaimed ground as every inch of enemy turf you claim adds to your team score and takes away from that of your rivals.

Splat Dualies

Each gun can be aimed independently via their own targeting reticle and there is a roll mechanic that is triggered when pressing Jump (B) while firing that causes the player to quickly roll in the indicated direction, with a small ink cone of ink left behind. The Splat Dualies come in a set with Burst Bombs and Tenta Missiles.
