A Splat Switch! Haven't seen one of those in a while.

Splat-Switches are square switches found on platforms in Octo Valley, Octo Canyon, Shifty Station, and Deepsea Metro. To activate it, the player must cover about 70% of the switch with their color. When activated, the switch causes a platform to shift or rotate, allowing Agent 3, Agent 4 or Agent 8 to progress in a mission. In Shifty Station, one of two things can happen when a Splat-Switch is activated depending on which team activated it.

In Splatoon 2, new types of Splat-Switches were introduced:

  • A temporary switch that is only on for a limited time, denoted by having three arrows on each side of the switch as opposed to one
  • An A/B switch that can be turned off by enemy ink, denoted by two pairs of lights on either side of the switch
  • Smaller versions of basic and temporary switches

The former two are exclusive to the Octo Expansion, but A/B switches also appear in some Shifty Stations.

  • A glitch exists where a player can partially ink the switch and then pause the game. When the player resumes, the switch will automatically activate. Knowing this can be useful for speedrunning. If the player had the game open for to long, this glitch will not work, however.
