The Reef is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2.

The Reef is located a few blocks from Inkopolis Square, it's a popular area to hang out when it's not being used for Turf War. The Reef is home to some of the most popular boutique shops in the city.

Layout

The Reef Overview.

The Reef features many wide open areas, with separate high and low levels. This creates many flanking paths around many of its key areas. The base is not accessable to the enemy team and includes a path which allows easy access to the far left and far right side of the map. Dropping from the base is a small square raised area that leads into the meat of the map. Notably there is a stone bridge at the center of the map which acts as a straight path into the enemy area. The map also boasts a large grass lot below the bridge, with a tree and a block as obstacles. The area underneath the bridge indents downwards and the turf is inkable.

Ranked Battle Terrain

Splat Zones

In Splat Zones, the zone can be found below the bridge. Boxes have been added around the bridge to help teams attack players on the bridge and gain control of it and the zone.

Tower Control

The tower initially starts below the bridge. When advancing, the tower goes left and retreat back to your side, going around the tree before advance back towards the enemy base. It will travel up the ramp and up into the small square lot in front of the enemy base where it will reach its goal.

Checkpoints:

  • The first checkpoint is located just left of the tower's positon.
  • The second checkpoint is located next to a tree when it retreats back towards your side.
  • The third checkpoint is located after it starts heading back towards the enemy base just before the homestretch, still in the grass lot.

Rainmaker

Like the tower in Tower Control, the Rainmaker starts below the bridge in the center of The Reef. Each goal is located next to the car in each base. Several ramps have been added that give each team access to the other team's base.

Clam Blitz

The basket is located below the unaccessable area of the base and there isn't any bump near it. There is a new block in the right side of the bridge to get above the wall.
