Octorpedoes are missile-like projectiles that are shot from various Octarians. Unlike Octomissiles, Octorpedoes follow their target instead of just moving in a straight line. Once they come in contact with any surface, they explode in ink. Shooting down an Octorpedo is very easy and requires very little ink. Although they may not be too damaging, they can still be distracting during a boss battle. Their design resembles that of Octopods.
In Splatoon, Octorpedoes can be found in Enter the Octobot King!. In this level, DJ Octavio can shoot up to four at one time, and they can be hard to destroy in time. In Splatoon 2, Octorpedoes can be found in the Octo Shower boss battle. The Octo Shower occasionally will fire two Octorpedoes at Agent 4. This attack can be difficult to evade if the player does not see them coming.
