Flooder Junkyard is the twelfth mission available in Splatoon's single-player mode, Octo Valley. The mission is named as such because of its heavy use of Flooders.

Octo Valley


Use the same path that you used to reach Mission 10. As you reach Area 3, head right, and there are two steep ramps. Use the ramps and jump on the platform, then go right. Ink the wall and use it to reach the higher platform. Also, an Inkrail can be found near a small wall. Climb up the wall to reveal the hidden Kettle leading to Mission 12.

Beginning area/Checkpoint 1

Beginning area: After taking the Launchpad, you will face off against two Flooders, which cannot be destroyed. The key to the vault can be found on the left side of the area which the Flooders are patrolling.

Checkpoint 1: You will be placed in another area being guarded by two Flooders. Get to the other side and an Inkrail will be found. If you take the Inkrail to the end, there will be a crate holding lots of Power Eggs.

Checkpoints 2 and 3

Checkpoint 2: Break the normal crates to the right to reveal an iron bar. Going through the bars will continue the mission. A locked vault can be found and the key can be found past the next checkpoint.

Checkpoint 3: Ignoring the vault, heading into an area full of crates, you have to look for the key. The key is located on the right side of a back corner. You will also have to brush off a few Octodivers while trying to get the key. When the key is collected, head back to the checkpoint and unlock the vault. The vault reveals a platform with a propeller lift that will elevate you to an area with two Octotroopers guarding a Launchpad. You are not required to splat the Octotroopers to reveal the Launchpad.

Final checkpoint

You will now be placed in a larger area in which five Flooders are guarding. There is a locked vault on the other side. A key is held by an Octodiver, so take it down and the key will be revealed. Be cautious though, as Flooders will still chase you. Getting to the vault, it will reveal an Inkrail. Take the Inkrail and it will lead you to the Zapfish.


Sunken Scroll

Sunken Scroll 12
The first battles of the Great War ended in victory for the Octarian forces. The diligent Octarians easily dominated the Inklings, who were unable to wake up early enough in the morning to defend themselves.

Location: At the second checkpoint, under the platform with the Inkrail. When you hit the first checkpoint, proceed like you normally would until you reach the platform with the Inkrail leading to the next area. Instead of using the Inkrail, drop to a platform beneath the one with the Inkrail (there is no lip to land on, so angle yourself inward). The scroll will be there along with a second Inkrail.

Alternatively, you can get to the Sunken Scroll by going to the second platform and then shooting the Inkrail on the platform underneath the first platform. Use this Inkrail to swim to the Sunken Scroll.
