Balance changes

  • We observed changes after distribution of Ver 5.3.0 and made adjustments to slightly lower the fighting power of certain weapons that could hold the battle line over a long period of time from further away compared to other weapons.
  • In addition, in order [to] increase the variety of weapons being selected, we made adjustments to several weapons to increase their competitiveness with the most popular weapons.
  • We will observe the changes after this update and make further adjustments to Splatoon 2 in the future.
