Splatoon 2’s Latest Update Makes More Adjustments to Ranked Mode, Salmon Run, and Weapon Balance

The content updates for Splatoon 2 are definitely starting to slow down, but Nintendo is still pushing out patches to tweak the game’s balance a little more and improve the overall experience.

Update 4.3.1 brings some chances to Ranked Battles and Salmon Run, as listed below:

 

  • Changes to Ranked Battle
    • Weapon specifications are taken into account when splitting an assembled group of eight players into teams for Ranked Battle, but this feature has been changed in the following ways:
      • The number of players with crown icons in X Rank will no longer have a significant impact on team breakdown.
      • The number of players using weapons from different categories such as “shooter” or “roller” won’t have a significant impact on team breakdown. Instead, the specifications for each specific weapon will be given more weight when splitting up teams.
  • Changes to Salmon Run
    • Fixed an issue occurring after creating a “With Friends” room where taking too long before selecting “Recruit more players” would cause other players not to join the room.
    • Fixed an issue causing players to occasionally pass through stage terrain after touching and getting knocked back by a Scrapper or Flyfish while standing near a wall.
    • Fixed an issue causing Scrappers to mistakenly not take damage when hit from behind with a direct shot from a Cannon.

In addition to that, the update also brings about changes for several weapons including Sploosh-o-Matic, Inkbrush, and Aerospray. You can check out the full list of changes here.

Splatoon 2 is now available on the Nintendo Switch.
