Tubular 8-Ball Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.


The main objective is to guide an 8-ball along narrow walkways by shooting it with a Splattershot Jr.. The ball can be moved between areas with special rails.

The first section is very simple. Agent 8 must get the 8-ball onto a rail, and rails and ball launchers will get the ball to a Shielded Octotrooper. After this, a launchpad will appear.

The second area involves a large number of cushions. The player must push the ball to the end without it being pushed off by a few Octarians.

The third area has two thin platforms with ball bumpers at the end. These should be hit straight on so that the ball does not fly off of the stage. This area will end by the player sending a ball down some 8-ball rails, where it will hit an Inkrail generator, letting Agent 8 proceed.

Area 4 has the player getting the 8-ball to a ball launcher. They must then use a Balloon Fish to send it flying to the goal platform. If they are successful, a launchpad will appear, letting Agent 8 push the ball onto the goal.

C.Q. Cumber's Quotes

Let me assure you that the movement of the 8-ball follows the law of nature.
I must also inform you that you won't be able to ride on the 8-ball rails yourself.
Please try to aim for the center of the 8-ball when shooting it.
You let an 8-ball fall-test failed.

You're getting good at this!

It looks like the 8-ball can be moved around using those special rails...
That cushion is absorbing some of the speed from the 8-ball.
Try to hit that bumper straight on, OK?
Oh! There's a ball bumper up ahead too!
Roll, roll, roll your ball!
Duck into the ink and keep moving!
Try to get it into the ball launcher back there!
I'm thinking you can use the Balloon Fish to your advantage here...
