O.R.C.A. describing the level

Twirling, Swirling, Whirling is the 16th level in Splatoon 3's story mode, Return of the Mammalians.


To get to the goal the player must make their way across multiple rotating platforms.


It would be just a short walk away from the pipe to Cozy & Safe Factory from Future Utopia Island.


Note: Due to the level having no fee, you may retry from checkpoints as many times as you want, even if you lose all your lives.


The level will start off with Agent 3 having to go past a rotating pillar with an Octotrooper riding on it, which would be a support platform for one of the later parts for the level. Then they will find another rotating pillar with an Octotrooper going around it. Agent 3 will find 4 smaller rotating pillars surrounding a Shielded Twintacle Octotrooper. There is a crate that contains Power Eggs inside it. Agent 3 goes on the left and goes around to the next checkpoint, or more specifically, the next floor.

Checkpoint 1

Agent 3 climbs up a wall to find 2 rotating pillars and some armor inside a crate on the left side. The player will encounter an Octocommander and defeat it. On the right side would be a crate with a canned Trizooka special inside the rotating glass pillars. The player will go around to get to the next floor/checkpoint.

Checkpoint 2

Agent 3 will find a rotating floor with some armor in a crate on the top. They will encounter 2 Octosnipers and on the top is another crate with 25 Power Eggs. After Agent 3 defeats the Octosnipers, they will have to make it to the rotating floor where the goal is.

Agent 1
Heads up, Agent 3. We've got a spinning Octarian!
Agent 2
Ooo, that one's got a shield. Is there any way to sneak behind it?
Agent 1
Those Octosnipers have the high ground. Watch your back!
Agent 2
That Trizooka has some serious range. Maybe save that for just the right moment?
Agent 1
Oh, that whole THING is spinning!
