8-ball switches are a mechanic in the Octo Expansion.
8-ball switches are gridded circles with a neon pink eight in the middle. If an 8-ball comes into contact with an 8-ball switch, the latter will vanish and an effect of some kind will trigger, usually helping the player progress.
8-ball switches appear in the following missions:
- Wassup 8-Ball Station
- Bumpin' 8-Ball Station
- Bodacious 8-Ball Station
- All That 8-Ball Station
- Wack 8-Ball Station
