Splatoon Update Adjusts Rainmaker

We’re rife with updates about updates this week! There’s another Splatoon update heading your way today, and we’ll provide you with the full list below. Most notable are: Matchmaking improvements and Rainmaker mode’s addition of prohibited areas. There are also some level shortcuts that will be closed across the board on all game modes, so you may want to have a care before hopping into ranked play if you’ve depended on specific shortcuts to gain an advantage.

Here are the changes in one comprehensive list:

Version 2.4.0

Matchmaking Adjustments:

– In Regular Battle and Splatfest, players of similar skill will be matched more often.

Rainmaker Adjustments:

– Added prohibited areas in Walleye Warehouse, Saltspray Rig, Arowana Mall, and Flounder Heights in Rainmaker mode.
– When players enter the prohibited area while carrying the Rainmaker, the amount of time they are allowed to hold the Rainmaker will decrease faster as a penalty.

Battle Fixes:
