Scorch Gorge is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 3. It is also one of the stages that can have Tricolor Turf Wars.


Overhead view of the stage

Scorch Gorge is a stage located in a deserted wasteland (presumably within the Splatlands). The center of the stage contains a climbable platform connected with grates to other platforms.


The spawn points are small raised areas that goes to another raised area. Going left leads the player to another platform that goes far to the left of the user's spawn. The right leads the user to some more raised areas for defense. Going straight leads the user down to an open area that ramps back up near the middle. Once it goes up, there is a platform to the left and a block in the middle that the user can climb up. To the right is an area that either ramps up to the middle or can be jumped up to through a block. The middle of the stage is fairly open and has a large tower in the center with grates that go towards the right of the stage, leading to the opponent's platform.

Ranked Battle Terrain

In Ranked Battles, 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.

Splat Zones

The Splat Zone is located in the middle of the stage, taking up most of the middle of the stage. The stage is unchanged.

Tower Control

The central platform is lowered compared to the Turf War version. The Tower starts on the platform, goes forward before turning right to the opposing team's left side. It then goes forward then left, then forward again until it reaches the goal. The left side of each team is now accessible by ramp and the grated pathway is now removed. The ramp to the left side is replaced with a climbable wall.

In Splatoon 3, checkpoints have been added:
Checkpoint Location Timer (Seconds) Progress Amount
Before After Total
1 The first checkpoint is to the right of the central tower 6 79 67 12
2 The second checkpoint is on the raised right area. 5 53 43 10
3 The third checkpoint is located on the enemy team's open area, before it reaches the goal. 3 12 6 6


The layout is similar to the Tower Control layout, but with grates leading to the enemy team's side. The Rainmaker starts on the central tower. The checkpoints are located on the right of the starting position and after the central grates on the opponent's raised area. The goal is located after the first drop from spawn. The far left side of the spawn has been shortened, and the areas immediately behind each team's left checkpoint are expanded to the left.

Clam Blitz

The Clam baskets are located to the left of each team's raised block. The stage is similar to the Rainmaker layout. The only change is the area near the baskets being more flat instead of on a ramp and the center tower being its normal height.

Splatoon 3

Scorch Gorge was released with the launch of Splatoon 3.


Scorch Gorge was available in the following Splatfests as a Tricolor Turf War stage in Splatoon 3:

Version history

Version Adjustments
  • Fixed an issue in Turf War, Splat Zones, and Clam Blitz battles where squeezing into the gap between certain terrain would cause the player to enter into the terrain.
  • Fixed an issue in Turf War and Splat Zones modes that allowed you to climb over certain obstacles and cross terrain in unintended ways.
  • Fixed an issue in Clam Blitz mode where clams were not placed symmetrically at the start of a battle.
  • Adjusted some of the terrain to fix an issue in Turf War and Splat Zones modes that allowed players to Dodge Roll and enter the enemy base in an unintended way.
  • Changed terrain in all modes.
