The Octoseeker is a helicopter made by the Octarians for reconnaissance and attack. It is piloted by a (presumably elite) Twintacle Octotrooper, which uses a joystick to move the craft and a button to raise and lower it. The front contains a window for the Twintacle to see out, which is uninkable. The back contains a door and an A/C unit, presumably to keep the pilot comfortable.
They are flying enemies and patrol around an area, raining down ink. They behave somewhat similarly to the Octostomp that their faces are modeled after. If they spot the player, they try to fly directly above them before falling to crush them. They then stay on the ground for a while, giving the player time to climb up on top of them. Getting crushed by an Octoseeker will break the player's armor instantly, and therefore splat them instantly if their armor is already broken. Octoseekers may accidentally crush other Octarians while in pursuit of the player, and they are one of the only ways to get rid of Bumpers.

- The bottom of the Octoseeker looks exactly like the Octostomp's face.
- Like Octostamps, Octostamp DXs, and the Octostomp, the stamp leaves an imprint on the ground.
- The Octoseeker is the rarest non-boss enemy in Splatoon 2, with just seven instances overall - six in Octo Canyon and just one in the Octo Expansion.
