How to Heal Your Health in Splatoon 3

Healing in Splatoon 3 works exactly as it does in past titles, and is just as easy to do repeatedly as it was in said games.

All you need to do is submerge yourself in a larger pool of Ink as a Squid once there’s any amount of your opponent’s Ink around the edges of your screen. Don’t emerge from the Ink until your screen is entirely free of the opposing team’s Ink, and make sure there aren’t any flecks left in your view. Once all of the Ink is gone, you’ll have restored yourself to full health and will be ready for some more sharpshooting Squid Kid action.

To do this, splat the ground with ink by pressing the ZR button, then press ZL to submerge yourself into the ink.
