Girl Power Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.

Gameplay

In addition to choosing a sub weapon in the Equipper, at the start of the mission Agent 8 is provided nine canned main weapons that correspond to the nine hero weapons from Octo Canyon, among which to choose before entering the mission proper:

The main arena also features two pieces of armor, and several canned special weapons:

To complete Girl Power Station, the player must defend the orb in the center of the stage for ninety seconds against a squad of seven Sanitized Octolings, followed by eight Sanitized Elite Octolings, who arrive onto the stage in waves at five specific locations relative to the stage around certain times:

Strategy

  • Select the main weapon among those available that you are most comfortable with. However, note that the two available backline weapons, the S2 Weapon Main Splat Charger.png Splat Charger and S2 Weapon Main Heavy Splatling.png Heavy Splatling, can leave a player relatively immobile, and the Sanitized Octolings will try to attack you and the orb from several different directions at once.
  • Collecting the S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor and the two sets of armor provide you extra layers of protection, allowing you to engage the Sanitized Octolings more aggressively.
  • Especially early on, it can be very beneficial to actively eliminate each Sanitized Octoling before it reaches the orb. This reduces the possibility of being overwhelmed by multiple Octolings while also preventing them from using their special weapons.
  • Sanitized Octolings arrive onto the stage via Super Jumping, so their landing points are marked. A well-timed S2 Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bomb or S2 Weapon Sub Curling Bomb.png Curling Bomb can eliminate an Octoling before she has a chance to cause damage.
  • Turfing the Sanitized Octolings' landing points before they arrive will impede their movement, slowing their advance towards the orb and leaving them easier targets to eliminate.
  • The Sanitized Octolings will try to destroy the crates surrounding the orb rather than taking the time to move around them. Keeping as many crates intact as possible – especially the armored crates – will help you stall for time. However, do not hesitate to break through the regular crates if you have to make an emergency defensive stop.
  • Firing at the orb with weapons or bombs will refill its health, but usually not fast enough to negate enemy attacks. Eliminate as many Sanitized Octolings as you can before healing the orb.
  • The Octolings can still be harmed before they have Super Jumped onto the battlefield, being completely vulnerable while standing on the ledge. However, attempting to attack them will automatically make them Super Jump and start their attack on the orb early, even if the attack misses.
    • The Splat Charger and S2 Weapon Special Inkjet.png Inkjet are both capable of splatting the Octolings before they are able to enter the battlefield. It should be noted that the laser sight of the Splat Charger will cause the Octolings to Super Jump, but they can still be splatted if done quick enough.
    • They will also automatically jump out of the way if you try to swing at them with a S2 Weapon Main Splat Roller.png Splat Roller.
  • The S2 Weapon Special Splashdown.png Splashdown and S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller are invaluable for turning the tables when the Sanitized Octolings have you surrounded. Note that this will very likely destroy any remaining crates.

Advice before starting the mission
