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.


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. The bridge in the center of the map provides a great view of the battle field from all sides. There is water on the far left side from spawn point as a hazard for players who fall in.

Ranked Battle Terrain

In Ranked Battle, 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

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 to a checkpoint. The tower then goes around the tree and stops at another check point. After, the tower advances again toward the opposing team's base and stops at one last checkpoint before reaching the goal. Ramps and boxes have been added to give both teams access to the other team's base.


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.
