Conserve Ink—Splat Sustainably

Conserve Ink—Splat Sustainably is the 59th level in Splatoon 3's story mode, Return of the Mammalians.


This mission tasks the player with navigating a long obstacle course infested with a variety of Octarians, with a very limited supply of ink and no way to refill it. If they run out of ink, O.R.C.A. will splat them. At the end of the mission, the player is rewarded with 2 additional Power Egg packs and a unique compliment if they managed to navigate the level without using any ink (from the Captain) or splatted every enemy (from Agent 1). Reaching the end without splatting any enemies other than Octopods but used ink results in another unique compliment from the Captain, but no additional rewards are given.

You've totally got this, Agent 3!
Ugh... How come we're not there yet?
Just inkredible! You didn't fire a drop! Wow!
— Beating the level without ink
Only a quarter tank left!
— When the ink tank gets to a quarter full
Aaand that's the last of the ink.
— When the ink tank is empty

S3 Icon Marie.png Agent 2's Quotes

Careful! If you run out of ink, that's it. No refills!
It gets pretty wild up ahead...
Now you just gotta get to the end!
Wanna know what the Captain's saying? "Winning without, THAT'S victory!"
— Beating the level without using ink
Almost empty!
— When the ink tank is almost empty


  • This mission's Octosniper has an aiming algorithm unique among the other Octosnipers: instead of simply following the player with the laser it's aiming, it goes slightly beyond in the direction where the stick is tilted, and therefore "predicts" the player's movement slightly. This behavior makes this Octosniper a tougher opponent if the player decides to pass by without using any ink against it.
