Flounder Heights is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon. It was revealed during a Japanese promotional trailer depicting new updates on July 24, 2015. It was released on August 20th, 2015.

Layout

Turf War

Flounder Heights is a map set on an apartment complex with many high vantage points and low, corner-based areas. The large amount of walls and the height of the buildings are what makes Flounder Heights so large.

Hazards

The only way to get splatted via falling in Flounder Heights is by falling out-of-bounds. This can be done by either falling through the fencing near the high edges of the map in squid form or jumping over the wall barriers surrounding the map.

Notable Locations

  • Central Towers- The center of Flounder Heights contains two towers connected by a grated bridge. This is probably where most fighting will occur, as the only way to get to the other side of the map is by going over the towers or through the alley beneath the bridge.
  • Low Alleys- These two alleys separate each team's base from the Central Towers. They each consist of one tree for cover.
  • Starting Plazas- The bases in Flounder Heights resemble the Starting Areas in Saltspray Rig; the other team cannot reach the higher part of the plaza, and there are four ways of exiting into the Low Alleys.
  • Live Map- On both sides of the map is a map that shows where ink from both sides of the map are, from a top-down perspective. It's not that useful as you always have a map with you on the GamePad.

Ranked Battle

Splat Zones

This map includes two Splat Zones, each zone is located on one of the two roofs of the Central Towers. The high ground is the main battlefield of this mode and using the buildings' walls can make for great access to either zone.

Tower Control

The tower is located at the center of the map in the lower path between the two main buildings. When ridden, the tower will travel over the divider wall and travel down through the Low Alleys before traveling into the lower part of the rivals' Starting Plaza. The goal points are at the center of each sandlot in both Starting Plazas.

Rainmaker

The Rainmaker in Flounder Heights is located on top of the grated bridge in the center of the map. The goal is located outside of the opposing team's base in the sandlot below the Spawn Point. Three stacks of boxes have been added to help the attacking team get inside the enemy team's Starting Plaza.

Tips

  • The Echolocator Special Weapon can be useful as it lets your team know where the enemy team is and if they're climbing up a wall.
