Cephalon HQ

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Cephalon HQ

Cephalon HQ is the fifth and final sector of Octo Canyon of Splatoon 2. The area holds 6 kettles and one boss kettle. It is an area of floating islands above a lake of Octarian ink. The only way to reach around the section is through moving platforms lit in blue, pink, yellow, and green. There is a large hole in the area that leads to Bomb Rush Blush, the final boss mission. However, the boss kettle is the only way to enter the mission. Jumping in the hole will cause the same effect as jumping into water.

Because of the very sparse ground and ease of falling to one's death, checkpoints are present in this sector of Octo Canyon.


  • Mission #22: Underground Expressway
    • Location: From the section's starting point take the blue-lit moving platform and jump off on an invisible platform that's surrounded by four pillars with pointy ends. From there the player has to navigate a series of invisible platforms, where the kettle resides at the end of the path.

  • Mission #23: The Octogalaxy
    • Location: From the section's starting point take the blue-lit moving platform and get off at the first blue light pole. Go through the grate and use all the Inkfurlers to reach the top of the raised platform. Once on top, two rotating cubes can be seen. The kettle is on one of the sides of the farther placed cube. Wait for the cube to rotate until the side the kettle resides in appears on top.

  • Mission #24: Transfer Junction
    • Location: From the section's starting point take the pink-lit moving platform and get off at the first pink light pole. Use the propeller to line up the platform's Dash track with the platform lying in front of it. When arriving on this moving platform, the player should wait until this Dash track is aligned with the one standing by itself. From there the kettle is found above and in front of the rotating cube.

Take the green-lit moving platform and get off at the first green light pole, where there is a checkpoint and Ink Switch. Get on the thin moving platform to face the other opposite side of the walls, and use the Ink Switch to be able to reach the inkable and climbable part of the wall. One of the walls can be climbed to reach a Ride rail that leads to the kettle.

  • Mission #26: Paradise Lanes
    • Location: From the section's starting point take either the yellow-lit or blue-lit moving platform and get off at the point that has both a yellow and blue light pole. From there activate all the Splat-Switches and navigate to the top of the moving platform, where the kettle can be accessed by activating the last switch.

    • Location: From the section's starting point take the pink-lit moving platform and get off at the second pink light pole. Use the propeller while dodging the Ink Piston and get on the next platform. There are some Bounce Pads that lead to the kettle which resides on a moving platform. Time the jump from the Bounce Pads with the platform's movement to land on it.
Kettle location
  • Mission 5B: Bomb Rush Blush
    • Location: After completing all of Sector 5's available missions, a giant circular platform will appear. From the section's starting point take the blue-lit moving platform to get across to the new platform, where the final boss kettle resides.



Go to the checkpoint that has both the yellow and green light pole. There is an invisible platform at the bottom of the broad side that has the green lightpole. Jump down there and destroy the orange crate that holds the Sardinium.
