Barnacle & Dime
The spawn region is fairly wide with another drop down as the main spawn region. To the far right is a path that goes over an uninkable and then leads to some high ground allowing poking to the middle of the stage. Going straight leads to another drop going to a pit with a block allowing access to the spawn. The middle of the stage features a slightly lower area to the left as another way to enter the middle of the stage. Going straight leads to slightly higher ground with some forms of cover. The center of the stage features some uninkable blocks around the edges and an inkable diagonal box in the very center.
Ranked Battle Terrain
The Splat Zone is located in the center of the stage. The stage is unchanged.
The Tower starts in the center of the stage, replacing the blocks normally there. From there, it goes left onto the raised area and then straight before turning left again onto the opponents raised area then straight to the goal. The raised areas on the right of the spawn have been shrunk, only going halfway as far and the ground next to the uninkable is around the same level as the uninkable. An Inkrail has been added at the very end of this area.
|In Splatoon 3, checkpoints have been added:
|The first checkpoint is located slightly left from the tower's starting position.
|The second checkpoint is located at the top of the opposing team's ramp that enters mid.
The Rainmaker is located on the stack of blocks in the middle. The checkpoint is located behind the raised area in the middle, before entering the opponent's base. The stage is most similar to the Tower Control layout, except for adding more cover in spawn and an uninkable staircase allowing another way to the pedestal.
The Clam Basket is located on each team's pit with a bump being added. The right side is similar to in Rainmaker but the box and grate is there next to the uninkable. The small pieces of cover is replaced by the Clam Basket and the Sponge from Tower Control is present.
Barnacle & Dime is the site of the fifth Big Run in Chill Season 2023. Its layout features many additional inkable blocks to provide extra vertical mobility. There are six Gushers on the stage, of which three are active on low tide and two each are active on normal and high tides. Normal and high tides both take place in the middle of the stage with the Egg Basket in the exact middle of the stage, while low tide takes place at Team Alpha's spawn with the Egg Basket on a raised ledge near where players spawn in. The Egg Basket's hitbox is extended downward due to its placement on a tall platform during low tide. All Known Occurrences that can take place during Big Runs may occur.

- Barnacle & Dime is one of Deep Cut's sponsors.
- When there is one minute left in Turf War, the fountains at the distance will light up and shoot out more water.
- Off to the distance, clothing that has yet to be added to the game can be seen on promotional cutouts of cephalopods outside of a store.
- The bathrooms can be translated into "Tansei, Genterless, and Josei", which means "Male, Genderless, and Female".
- When near the alpha spawn it is possible to hear the Ammo Knights version of Dripping with Style.
- However, this is muted during online matches so this can only be heard in recon.
- During a Big Run, the glass dome on the ceiling of the building is partially broken.
"Barnacle & Dime" is a pun on 'barnacle', a type of aquatic arthropod, and 'nickel and dime', which means charging a large amount of money over time by way of many small payments.
