An Inkling using it strikes the ground with heavy force, causing an ink explosion around them. Using it on the ground will cause the player to jump up with a short delay, but it can also be used from the air or during a Super Jump. If the player is splatted while in the air, they will only get a 25% special penalty (40% if opponent has S2 Ability Respawn Punisher.png Respawn Punisher or S2 Ability Haunt.png Haunt).

A player using Splashdown is briefly vulnerable to attacks. Similar to S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor, the player can be splatted before the activation animation is finished. The weapon is more effective in the air, while the Inkling is Super Jumping. A radius displays when the Splashdown is used; this radius indicates the weapon's one-hit-splat range. Opponents just outside this area will still take significant damage.

In Salmon Run, the Splashdown's range is always the same range when using a Super Jump.

    • 180 damage range: 0 → ~1.4 bar radius.
    • 70 damage range: ~1.3 → ~2.0 bar radius.
    • 55 damage range: ~2.1 → ~2.9 bar radius.
    • Height increases the 180 damage radius, but not any other radius.
  • Splashdown wind-up delay: 1.2 seconds.
    • Delay decreased by 60% when used during a super jump. Down to 0.8 seconds.
  • Invincibility duration: 5 frames during the rise and 30 frames after landing.
  • S2 Ability Special Power Up.png Special Power Up: Radius of 180 damage increased. Maximum 70 damage radius and 55 damage radius unchanged. Inking range unchanged.

Version history

Version Adjustments
  • Decreased amount of time the player remains at the peak height of their jump by 10/60 of a second.
  • Increased the peak height of the Splashdown jump by roughly 31%.
  • Increased the minimum damage caused by the Splashdown: 40.0 → 55.0.
  • Decreased the points required to use the Splashdown special for certain main weapons it is paired with.
  • Dealing damage to a player mid-Splashdown will no longer depend on Internet connection quality.
  • Increased radius of turf inked when landing, and decreased gaps of uninked turf.
  • Decreased reduction of special gauge if the user is splatted in the time between activating the special but before landing with it from 50% to 25%.
  • Increased damage dealt by the Splashdown to bubbles fired by the S2 Weapon Special Bubble Blower.png Bubble Blower, ensuring that they will be destroyed if struck by it, regardless of which area of the Splashdown hits the bubble and whether or not the user is wearing S2 Ability Object Shredder.png Object Shredder.
  • Greatly increased damage dealt to opponent Brellas.
    • Increased damage to opponent Brellas varies from roughly 2 to 3.2 times the previous amount depending on the Brella.
  • Increased damage dealt to an opponent S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller by roughly 2.5 times.
  • Increased damage dealt to opponent Ballers by roughly 2.4 times.
  • Increased damage dealt to armor surrounding an opponent charging a S2 Weapon Special Booyah Bomb.png Booyah Bomb by roughly 7.5 times.
  • Extended the area within which damage is dealt upward.
    • This change makes it easier to deal damage to mid-air opponents from even a moderate distance.
    • There is no change to the damage area for opponents standing near but lower than the epicenter of the blast.
  • Increased damage dealt to opponent Ballers by roughly 21%.


You charge up power while floating upward, then slam down to the ground, attacking the surrounding area. The range of the attack is wider if used from an elevated area. It can also be used during a Super Jump!
Splatoon 2 Sub & Special Guide(NA/OC)[a]
Charge up as you climb into the air, then hit the ground with explosive force. Use it from high places to broaden the range of the attack. You can also use the Splashdown during a Super Jump.
