Shipshape Cargo Co. is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 3. It is set on a semi-submersible cargo ship.

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 underneath the raised area in the middle of the stage. The area near the center has been flattened and the entrance to the opponent's spawn is changed, making it narrower and more simplified.

Tower Control

The Tower starts in the middle of the stage. The middle has been changed, having the raised areas be climbable and raising the pit making it slightly higher than the ground around it. The Tower moves to the left onto the raised area, then down towards the middle, and then to the right near the raised area on the right. It then goes through the trench to the goal. The areas on the right have had parts of turf removed and the island on the right is now accessible from the middle with a grate. The raised areas on the left are also connected through grates from each team's open area near the middle.


The Rainmaker starts in the center of the stage. The checkpoint is located before the trench to the opponent's spawn and on the raised area to the left. The goal is located after the trench in the open area. The layout is similar to Tower Control but another grate has been added to the island allowing access from below and the ramp near each team's spawn is changed slightly. The center also now has a ramp instead of a block to get up to.

Clam Blitz

The Clam Basket is located on the raised area on the left from the middle of the stage. The stage is most similar to the Tower Control layout except for some inkable blocks added allowing another way to the basket and the grates on the left no longer being connected to the middle.

Splatoon 3

Shipshape Cargo Co. debuted in Splatoon 3 as part of the Drizzle Season 2023.

  • Flying fish occasionally can be seen jumping and gliding in the backgrounds throughout the stage.


A pun on "Shipshape" (a nautical term describing something as very neat and tidy), cargo "shipping" and the fact the stage is set on board a cargo ship.
