Version history

Version 6.1.0 is an update to Splatoon 3 that released on 25 January 2024.[1] This update focuses on making balance changes to weapons, bug fixes, and renovations to Mincemeat Metalworks.

Notes

This update focuses on making tweaks to multiplayer. For main weapons, we made adjustments with the intention of making it easier to handle and utilize the strengths of some weapons, as well as adjusting the performance of some weapons that can hold the line in battle from a distance. For special weapons, we made changes that will create new ways to use them, expanding the range of gameplay. We plan on releasing the next update at the end of the current season. It will focus primarily on weapon balance adjustments and adding features for the new season starting in March.

Bug fixes

Fixes to player controls

  • Fixed an issue while charging a Fizzy Bomb that sometimes indicated the number of charged explosions had increased approximately 1/60 seconds faster than when they had actually increased.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the jumping animation to be omitted when the player activated the Kraken Royale while swimming in ink on a wall.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the Rainmaker to become embedded in the wall if a player carrying the Rainmaker was splatted while submerged in ink on a wall.

Fixes to multiplayer

  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot that caused players who activated the Zipcaster near certain areas on the elevators to clip into the terrain when they returned to their original spot after the effect ended.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot that caused Tenta Missiles and Ink Storm to get cut off by things like the elevators or the metal bridge.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot in Turf War and Rainmaker modes that allowed players to unintentionally reach higher terrain by using Triple Splashdown in certain areas.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot in all modes except Tower Control that allowed players to unintentionally land on certain terrain.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot in Tower Control mode that allowed players to get inside certain terrain.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot in Tower Control mode that prevented certain walls near the center of the stage from being inked correctly.
  • Fixed an issue in Bluefin Depot in Rainmaker mode where certain areas would not allow players to swim, even if those areas appeared to be inked.

Fixes to Salmon Run

  • Fixed an issue when replaying job scenarios recorded in past versions where a different King Salmonid would sometimes appear than the King Salmonid that appeared originally.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented players from being able to splat Boss Salmonids with a charged swipe using a Grizzco Splatana if another player on their work crew had a Splatana Stamper or Splatana Wiper.
  • Fixed an issue in Spawning Grounds that caused slowdown when players were on top of certain terrain.

Other fixes

  • Fixed an issue on the locker editing screen that sometimes caused the name of a selected weapon to not display correctly when the weapon icons were arranged in a certain order.

Trivia

  • In the English translation of the patch notes, the Squeezer change was mistranslated as a decrease in ink consumption instead of an increase. The Ink Storm was also mistranslated as opponents healing quicker instead of being allies that heal quicker. This was fixed shortly afterwards.
