Play the Single-Player Campaign
Splatoon 2 Tips and Tricks for Beginners
Splatoon 2’s single-player campaign isn’t the greatest, but it’s an excellent starting point for newcomers who want to get a hang of the game’s controls and mechanics. The campaign is very tutorial-heavy, but it will walk you through the various weapon types available in the game, allowing you to find the ones that really click with you. This is probably the most important aspect of the campaign, as learning about the weapon types will help familiarize you with their uses, and you can use this knowledge in your future online multiplayer matches.
You’ll also get used to more basic mechanics like transforming into a squid, rolling around in ink to take cover and refill, and learning how to get the drop on your enemies.
