Haunt is an ability in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Haunt helps the user track the opponent that defeated them. In Splatoon, Haunt gives the user S Ability Damage Up.png Damage Up, S Ability Defense Up.png Defense Up, and S Ability Run Speed Up.png Run Speed Up while certain conditions are met. In Splatoon 2, when the user splats an opponent they are tracking, that opponent gets the effects of S2 Ability Respawn Punisher.png Respawn Punisher for that splat.

Splatoon

Mechanics

When the user is splatted, the opponent that caused that splat (if any) is marked with a Point Sensor marker which lasts for about 9 seconds (default) (about 4.5 seconds with S Ability Cold Blooded.png Cold-Blooded).

While the user is marked by a 'Point Sensor marker' (includes S Weapon Sub Point Sensor.png Point Sensor, S Weapon Special Echolocator.png Echolocator, and S Ability Haunt.png Haunt), a certain amount of S Ability Damage Up.png Damage Up, S Ability Defense Up.png Defense Up, and S Ability Run Speed Up.png Run Speed Up is given to the user.

Tactics

Haunt is useful for players who usually flank; and for back liners, since if they are splatted, their team is more likely to notice that an enemy may be coming up from behind.
