Marie: Maybe that's why there aren't many cars here.

Features

Moray Towers consists of two large towers connected by a series of diagonal ramps on smaller towers. It includes two Spawn Points on opposite towers, meeting together in the center through a network of ramps. Although the large amount of ramps provides an easy way to ink turf, players may also jump from ramp to ramp for a quick route to the center. Many of the towers here contain parking garages.

Hazards

Moray Towers's high and low areas are separated by large chasms. Falling into a chasm will force Inklings to respawn.

Notable Locations

  • Center Area – The Center Area is located between both teams' Spawn Points. It can be reached by traveling along a series of ramps, or more quickly by jumping over the ramps' edges. Due to the bottleneck nature of the ramps leading from the middle, it is a bit difficult for teams to advance past the center area. Unless teams are able to invade the other team's base and hold them back, matches are often decided by which team can paint more of the middle in the last 5 seconds of the match.

Ranked Battle

Splat Zones

There are two Splat Zones on Moray Towers, both being on the ending part of the ramps closest to the center. They are the smallest splat zones in any level in the game.

Tower Control

The Tower can be found directly in the center of the map, on the small, raised platform. It makes its way over the center area, above a chasm, and finally, into its goal on the section above the second-lowest ramp. The sides in the center area retain the smaller design from the old layout, but the walls are still added from the other modes.

Rainmaker

The Rainmaker in Moray Towers starts in the center of the map on the small incline. The goal is located below to first big drop off outside of the opposing team's base.
