Mincemeat Metalworks is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 3. It is a metalwork in the Splatlands in what used to be an ocean that evaporated. It is also one of the stages that can have Tricolor Turf Wars.

Ranked Battle terrain

In Ranked Battles, specifications for the terrain or placement of objects are different between the modes; these changes create new paths or new objects to take cover behind.

Splat Zones

The Splat Zone makes up most of the middle, in between the two raised areas and underneath the grated middle.

Tower Control

The Tower starts on top of the grated bridge. It goes into the raised areas before turning right and then forward again into the opposing team's side. It goes into the side route of the opposing team before reaching the goal. A ramp is added to allow access to the opposing team's side easier. The grated bridge connecting the opposing team's side and the raised area has been removed.

In Splatoon 3, checkpoints have been added:
Checkpoint Location Timer (Seconds) Progress Amount
Before After Total
1 The first checkpoint is located at the end of the opponent's raised area just before it drops to the right. 5 88 78 10
2 The second checkpoint is located just past the first ramp on the far right. 5 49 39 10
3 The third checkpoint is located just past the second ramp on the far right, beginning to enter the opponent's spawn area. 5 21 11 10


The Rainmaker starts at the center of the stage. The checkpoints are located after entering the opponents' base through the grated bridge, or to the right of the starting position. The goal is located on the first drop from the spawn area. A ramp is added to the right to allow access to the pedestal.

Clam Blitz

The Clam Basket is located on some grates on the first drop down from spawn, with a bump being added to help the player access it from below. Blocks are added to the left open area allowing another way to the basket.

Squid Research Lab here with a meaty discovery - this is rare imagery of a new multiplayer stage: Mincemeat Metalworks! The facility was made FROM scrap metal in order to make MORE scrap metal. Also, there was a sea here that evaporated. Surely unrelated to heavy industry!

This new multiplayer stage, Mincemeat Metalworks, was made from scrap metal in order to make more scrap metal. There used to be a sea here, but it evaporated, leaving behind a wasteland.
