New Splatoon 2 Update Fixes SplatNet Gear Issues and Adjusts Special Gauge Requirements

Splatoon 2, play with friends

Choose your specials wisely.

Nintendo has just released a new update for Splatoon 2 on the Switch, and it comes with some quality of life changes that players will surely appreciate. The biggest change is the adjustment to the points required to fill up the special gauge. Most specials require 180p, but with the latest update, the requirements are now more varied from weapon to weapon. You can check out the full list of changes here:

  • An occasionally occurring issue allowed players to receive gear from the SplatNet Gear Shop with an unintended combination of gear abilities. The combination of abilities for this type of gear has been changed to match those of gear available for purchase in the Inkopolis Square shops.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented ranking information from displaying properly when viewing “Past Records” for League Battle.
  • Adjusted the number of points required to fill the special gauge for the following weapons:
    Weapon Before ⇒ After
    Splat Dualies 180⇒170
    Hero Dualie Replicas 180⇒170
    Enperry Splat Dualies 180⇒170
    Tentatek Splattershot 190⇒210
    N-ZAP ’85 180⇒200
    .96 Gal 180⇒210
    Slosher 180⇒190
    Hero Slosher Replica 180⇒190
    Tri-Slosher 180⇒210
