How to Play With Friends in Splatoon 2
Splatoon 2’s online multiplayer modes can largely be enjoyed alone, but you’ll have a lot more fun in the game if you team up and play with friends instead. First off, if you’re hoping to enjoy split screen co-op with friends and family, that isn’t possible in this game. Local play is available, but only in the form of a LAN mode where all players need to have a Switch and a copy of the game with them.
If you want to play with people on your friends list, simply head into the online lobby and choose the option that lets you play with friends. You can select people from your friends list and play regular battles together. For league battles, you can only play in either a team of two or fours. And as for Salmon Run, the mode will only be available online during scheduled times. When it’s available, go to the Grizzco building and choose the second option that lets you play with friends. When the mode isn’t available, you can set up a LAN match at the Shoal instead.
