Features Inkrails

Bonerattle Arena is a Salmon Run Next Wave-exclusive online multiplayer stage. It is set in a former penal colony that has been modified into an arena. It was released in Splatoon 3 on 1 March 2024, at the start of the Fresh Season 2024. The stage mainly features inkrails.[1]


The stage is set in the center of the titular Bonerattle Arena, surrounded by several islands where Salmonids are visible spectating, as well as several bones with cages full of food dangling from them. The egg basket is located atop a tower in the center of the arena, which Salmonids can only access by climbing two ramps on either side of the tower and crossing a grate bridge. The Salmonid spawn areas are located in shores at the sides of the ramps, two of them facing the smaller islands, and one close to the main island with the statue.

Scattered around the level are 10 inkrails. The three shortest are located on the shorelines, while the rest are paired together to connect from the tower to ground level. One lone inkrail connects to the side of the tower without a shore.

  • During a Giant Tornado wave, it is possible for a player to get from behind the basket to the egg box by initially wall climbing then by inkrails without touching the ground at all. If the player picks up Golden Eggs and throw them into the water, the Golden Eggs will fly towards the basket upon touching the water, completely bypassing the need to chain-throw them.[2]
  • The sound of announcer chatter can be heard in between waves, providing the first occasion in the series where the Salmonid language can be heard.
  • The giant salmon statue behind the stage greatly resembles Hugefry, with the torch on its head forming the Classic hairstyle.
