Plaza Out of Bounds does not work!

Help me! No matter how many times, the plaza out of bounds glitch would not work!mIs there a certain way to do it, or has it been patched out of the game? Mr Squid (talk) 05:32, 6 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Take a look at this: video. It requires the inklings in this position pretty much and may take a lot of tries. Like, a lot of tries. AmbientDinosaurSig.pngAmbientDinosaurSigTalk.png 06:10, 6 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, it still isn't working. The inklings are in the right spot, I come from the right directio and I jumped at exactly the right time. And I tried lots of times. By the way, I actually found Inkipedia by looking for how to do the plaza out of bounds glitch.

Is Squid in Jellyfish really a glitch

I don't think it should count as a glitch. The developers might have just did it on purpose or were too lazy to do anything about it. 7:21, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I'd say it's more of a little.. eccentricity with the model than a glitch. Like how you can clip into the trees and through butterflies and stuff. They're not errors per se, just things so minor that even if they don't work totally realistically it doesn't matter. :B --Bzeep! talk 01:12, 21 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Weapon Test Area Glitch

Sometimes when you throw a splat bomb behind the basketball goal, it goes through the wall behind it and falls off the map. Mariesignature.png SPBOnion talk page 19:10, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Woah really? Weird.. Do you have a video or something? :0 --Bzeep! talk 02:21, 27 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, I don't have a video. All I know is that the bomb clipped through the wall and did something similar to the Urchin Underpass glitch. As in you didn't hear the landing sound but you heard it explode, and it was quieter than usual since it fell through the map. Mariesignature.png SPBOnion talk 02:00, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That always happens when you try to throw a bomb out of bounds.

14:43, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Yeah that's pretty well known by now tbh. But I've only seen what I explained once or twice where the bomb clips through the wall. I'm guessing you have to throw it at a VERY precise angle then it goes behind the b-ball goal instead of landing on it, and then the bomb clips through the wall and goes out of bounds. I only know it did that because the sound was quieter similar to what happens in Urchin Underpass and every map ever that you can throw a bomb out of bounds on. Of course the only way you'd be able to see it other than being RIGHT by the goal is Super Jumping with a Squid Beakon, but you wouldn't be able to do it fast enough :/ Mariesignature.png SPBOnion talk page 19:10, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My best explanation is that it's a mix between the Inkopolis Out of Bounds Glitch and the Urchin Underpass glitch. Mariesignature.png SPBOnion talk page 01:34, 5 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Glitches?

I saw a bunch of new glitches on Youtube, most of which are not on this page. I'd like to share them here so people can help me add then to the page, but am I allowed to just paste in the links? Skylar (talk) 01:48, 12 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Add them here and we'll help you add them to the glitches page. ShaharSig2.png (ShaharSigtalk2.png) 21:18, 12 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Any Splatoon 2 Gitches?

It's kind of weird seeing on how long ago Splatoon 2 was released, but I haven't seen this page updates with any glitches from Splatoon 2. I'd like to take a look at some videos, but I actually want to also try them myself, sadly I don't own the Nintendo Switch nor Splatoon 2. I find Video Game glitches really interesting, so I hope someone will list Splatoon 2 Glitches. AsrielTheInkling (talk) 03:43, 20 September 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New glitch

I just discovered a new splatoon 2 glitch: if maps and modes update while you're searching for a battle to join, the game will freeze Pinkyoshifan (talk) 21:59, 29 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Endless Rainmaker Battle Glitch

Well, when I was on Splatoon 1, I was playing a rainmaker battle, and when the timer hit 0:00, there was no game. The battle didn't go into overtime but just stayed at 0:00. People tried popping the rainmaker, but it wouldn't pop. The battle just was on, and the only way to get out of it was disconnecting. I've tried to replicate the glitch, but haven't been able to. Does anyone know how this glitch works?

                                                                                                                Cringeberry (talk) 04:22, 21 October 2018 (UTC)CringeberryReply[reply]
This glitch is not exclusive to Rainmaker, but can happen to all Ranked modes. Here are video examples: Tower, Splat Zones, Unknown Ranked Battle. This wiki already has a section talking about the endless Tower Control match, but could be fleshed out to include all the Ranked modes. As for the cause, what all these matches have in common is that one player seems to have disconnected (as seen in the videos at least one player never respawns in the icons). Splatoon uses peer-to-peer, but has one person act as the "host", where in Ranked Battles the host is the one responisible for calculating things like Tower movement. When the host disconnects someone else would be assigned these tasks, but it seems like something must have glitched in the process that may have caused this. --Hinamin (talk) 13:01, 21 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You can see it in the original "Glitches" page; it also has a few more videos. Wgreiving! (talk) 15:12, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Potentially more glitches

I found some videos that features glitches throughout Splatoon 2 after browsing online, though I am not sure how to include these. (Out of bounds glitches) (Rainmaker orientation glitch) (2:17 shows a glitch that crashes the game) (2:42 shows an out of bounds glitch)

potential glitch

Prior to 5.0, in Octo canyon, you could swim in the ground under Callie's feet as if it were inked. So, has anybody else had that happen? I have a pic somewhere, so when I upload it I can show you. I think it might be a reasonable thing to add. £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 13:55, 18 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's happened to me too and has anyone else have the idiot octos where in Octo Canyon they don't attack? This is a current glitch that hasn't stopped 🦑Zombietoon🦑 (talk) 16:17, 18 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Which idiot octos again? I might be able to confirm. Wgreiving! (talk) 15:14, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Currently working glitches

I think that this page should only have currently working glitches. I think patched glitches should be documented on the version update article. My reasoning, is that once a glitch is patched, there is no longer a glitch! Heddy (talk) 15:37, 16 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

???????? Inkling

This is an intended thing Nintendo added in case of a disconnection before match starts. It's not a real glitch but a work-around for how the game functions. I suggest to delete it. Any thoughts? ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 21:00, 20 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree it is not a glitch. Should I remove it?  GX_64 (talk)  05:32, 17 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it can be a glitch, so we should keep it Lofiguy (talk) 18:56, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New glitch in Splatoon 2?

So, I'm new here, i think i discovered a new glitch a few weeks ago, don't know how it happened tho. I went into a match of Tower Control, and the beginning cutscene bugged out where it took a little longer than normal, and when the screen turned white, i was able to move already, and the arrow that points to your character was still there, it stayed like that the whole match, even when i died a few times. I took several screenshots and videos during the match. Has anyone else run into this too? CalamariKirby8190 (talk) 16:13, 5 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Spectator View sound glitch

This has been known for a while, but landing a fully charged shot with the Bamboozler will play the direct sound effect for anyone in spectator view when it should just play the normal hit sound effect. WGVB StutterGod (talk) 20:47, 3 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Octo Shot skip

I don't think that the Octo Shot skip should be included on the glitches page since it is a skip rather than a glitch. What do you think? EminenceTalk 13:54, 30 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A new glitch (I think)

I found this glitch in the Octo expansion on the level where you destroy only the orange boxes level. If you use the blaster and destroy an incorrect box and hit a grapplink at the same time, you will keep on going as if the grapplink is still going, but you die because of the incorrect box.

That's not a glitch...

Hey, the "Inkling no clothes glitch" isn't a glitch. It is supposed to do that, same as how you will be shown with armor if you had it, and in the Octo expansion this happens as well. WoomyGirl85 (talk) 15:48, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As I said, I haven't verified this, I just rewrote it so it looked better. I'd suggest that you talk to PyroRaven57, who originally added this glitch. Thanks! EminenceTalk 15:51, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To note, I do also agree with how it isn't a glitch. Something that normally happens ChessMaster [TALK] 16:05, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I removed the glitch indefinitely. If someone can verify the glitch, I will put it back. EminenceTalk 16:09, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! WoomyGirl85 (talk) 16:10, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have encountered this method before. It is NOT a glitch, but a Easter egg in some way. There are images of it on the Hero Suit page showing the different variants for each gender. Plus, it can also happen in the Octo Expansion. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 16:22, 18 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splatoon 3 waiting room glitch

I discovered a no damage glitch in the shooting range/waiting room for the splatoon 3 testfire, and if you make the copy machine throw a bomb or shoot a shot thne open the match menu, you take no damage. I will try to upload a video of this later to show you. It might not be a glitch, since its just showing a menu, but I think this should go in splatoon 3 glitches.

Splatoon 3 Testfire + Release Glitches

We think it's about time a Splatoon 3 section is added; the tutorial glitch (going out of the gate w/o entering the cutscene), the one in the testfire where you could hover over some out-of-bounds water, multiple glitches in the testing range/lobby, salmon run crashing at the end of almost every match (might be patched by now)... There's a lot of em already, we should probably add them. -Rider - Komisurdamai hajufrodaskai!~ SplatSys 13:44, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I added a part for this page for glitches, so go ahead! Also if you know how to change the colour of the table plz do so. Derpster (talk) 23:42, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

More Glitches

A few glitches I encountered in Splatoon that aren't on the list:

A battle had a team of 3 people and a team of 1 person. When you got splatted by the solo person, it showed up as being splatted by a gold dynamo roller instead of the octobrush that they were using. Also, the 3 person team had white ink.

I saw somebody use a glitch where they, with the splat roller, threw many suction bombs in a curved shape.

In a regular battle, the mode was tower control and my team got a KO. During scoring, the score was in a percent but did not represent the turf inked. I know this because I had about 80% of the stage inked and it showed up as about 50%.

In one battle, the entire stage got covered by the enemy's ink about every second. When the other team arrived, the periodic inking stopped. One player used 3 different specials, an inkstrike, multiple inkzookas, and multiple burst bomb rushes. The inkzooka shots and burst bombs were launched very rapidly. We also were able to be splatted inside our respawn point. One of the players in the scoring's name was ??????????, it said they had inked no turf, they were level 1, and they were wearing the starting gear.

If anybody would like more information or has had these happen to themself, please comment.

None of these seem like glitches, rather they all seem like third-party hacks. (Especially that last one.) I don't believe these would fall within the scope of the wiki, and even if they did they wouldn't belong on the glitches page as they aren't natural bugs. Pringlesfan2002 (talk) 00:22, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Agreed, none of those sound like glitches that appear naturally. If they continue to occur, however, add them. (But also check if they're with the same person as well as it could be a hacker. -Xando (talk) 15:07, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Personally I'd disagree with adding them to this page if they continue occurring, considering that no matter how many times they happen they're still almost certainly hacks and not glitches. However, there could possibly be an argument made for creating a page covering unofficial hacks on the wiki? (Actually, there's already a page on specifically hacked gear lying around.) I could see how such a page might have some concerns of possibly "encouraging" hacking though, and it might be difficult to cover such a topic in sufficient detail without running into that problem (obviously the wiki shouldn't be literally encouraging people to hack the game, especially not in ways that give unfair advantage or otherwise ruin the game for others, but if you start listing what hacks exist there will probably inevitably be someone who wants to try them)...but seeing as hacking is a fairly notable topic in the community it does seem like it could theoretically fall into the wiki's notability policy for unofficial topics if such a page was wanted, so I thought I'd at least float the idea. Pringlesfan2002 (talk) 15:17, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Most of these "glitches" are common hacks in Splatoon 1 and should not be added to this page. EminenceTalk 15:22, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay! Just out of curiosity, (I wont use them) does anybody know how you could execute these? Cuttlfish59 (talk) 16:04, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To keep things brief they're done through exploiting vulnerabilities in the game and the console's firmware. I don't believe it'd be appropriate to go on in detail about them here though since it would get rather off topic from the main page. Pringlesfan2002 (talk) 16:09, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inkopolis Plaza glitch

So, I encountered a very strange audio glitch right before the Power vs Wisdom vs Courage Splatfest where the battle tower track doubled. You can see it in this video.

Another Glitch on the Wiki

In the Trivia section of Shifty Station it says, "On Wayslide Cool, there is an Inkjet glitch that allows the player to clip through the wall." Should we add it to this page? If not, why?

Also on the article Splat Switch: 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.
