Mobility refers to the movement of player characters.

Jump

Players are able to jump to reach surfaces and have another mobility option during combat. In Splatoon, players can jump with Button1 X.png, and in Splatoon 2, players can jump with Button1 B.png.

Super Jump

Main article: Super Jump

The Super Jump is an ability that allows Inklings and Octolings to jump high in the air in order to land somewhere else. Super Jumps can be quicker in online battles with the Quick Super Jump ability.

Run speed and swim speed

In humanoid form, an Inkling or Octoling can run on flat surfaces. Run speed can be increased in online battles with the Run Speed Up ability.

In squid or octopus form, an Inkling or Octoling can swim and jump quickly through ink of the same color, even using this mechanic to swim up walls and through wire fences and grates into areas that are not typically reachable. Swim speed can be increased in online battles with the Swim Speed Up ability.

Weight classes

In Splatoon games, during online battles, swim speed and run speed are tied to the weapon the player has equipped.

Weight classes are categories that main weapons belong to based on how fast Inklings and Octolings can run and swim with the weapon equipped.

Splatoon

The weapon-based mobility mechanic was not used extensively in Splatoon. At first, it was only applied to the Rainmaker, which reduces swim speed by 20% and reduces run speed by 60%. The mechanic was first applied to main weapons in version 2.7.0 of Splatoon.

In addition to stacking with the speed modifiers Swim Speed Up, Run Speed Up, Ninja Squid, and Disruptors, the weapon speed penalties listed here also stack with each other. For example, an E-liter player that picks up the Rainmaker will move slower than a Splattershot player that picks up the Rainmaker.

Splatoon 2

The weapon-based mobility mechanic was expanded in Splatoon 2 to affect run speed based on the main weapon equipped in addition to affecting swim speed. A new lightweight class was added to allow increases in mobility. Weapon movement speed modifiers do not stack with each other, so if a player picks up the Rainmaker, their main weapon's movement speed modifier will be replaced with the Rainmaker's movement speed penalty. The speed modifier still stacks with Swim Speed Up, Run Speed Up, Ninja Squid, and Toxic Mist.

In Octo Expansion, weapons that are heavyweight are middleweight instead. However, the Rainmaker's weight class is unchanged in this mode.
