Dash tracks are a mechanic found in Octo Canyon and the Octo Expansion. Upon touching a dash track, the player is sent flying in the direction it points in, allowing them to cross large gaps or quickly clear obstacles. Bombs also follow dash tracks. They have also been used in a Shifty Station layout, where S2 Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinklers and S2 Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bombs follow the track instead of sticking, but S2 Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs do not. The player can move on the dash track as a humanoid or a squid or octopus.

Description

Dash tracks resemble conveyor belts that and are always in motion. They can be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. They have pictures of squids on them, resembling arrows. They also send the player(s), octarians in Octo Canyon and Octo Expansion, and most bombs flying towards the direction they are pointing at at a relatively fast speed, usually enough to cross a huge gap otherwise inaccessible. S2 Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinklers and S2 Weapon Sub Suction Bomb.png Suction Bombs remain on and follow the dash panel, and S2 Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs explode on impact.
