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. 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.
In Splatoon 2, the overall map layout is relatively unchanged, however the central area has been expanded with the cap between the ramp on the lower area and the enemy's floor filled in as well as the addition of more room at the end of each team's alley. Most notable two Inkrail have been added on either side of the map, one at the end of the alley in the central area designed to give another point of access to the opposing team's side and another from each team's lower floor which takes then up the ramp.
Ranked Battle Terrain
In Ranked Battle, 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.
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.
In Splatoon 2, The location of the two Splat Zones have been changed, both moved to the central area of the stage making taking control of both zones significantly easier.
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.
In Splatoon 2, checkpoints have been added:
- The first checkpoint will be located at the end of the alley on the bottom most area.
- The second checkpoint will be located on the platform one level below the goal.
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.
