Crusty Sean's going on a journey, and the more you ink, the more points you'll get to cheer him along. Who knows, he might even bring you a souvenir!
— SplatNet 3

Wandercrust is a feature of SplatNet 3 where players can support Crusty Sean as he travels using Ink Points earned from inking during in-game battles, and starting in version 6.0.0, Salmon Run Next Wave shifts as well.


Wandercrust is split into several journeys, which are themselves further split up into a number of sub-goal locations that require certain amounts of points to complete. As they complete each location in a journey, players will be rewarded with "souvenirs" for helping, including special wallpapers for their smart device, transparent "stickers" of various graffiti seen in-game, titles, and upon completion of a journey, an in-game gear item. This feature is similar to SplatNet 2's ink milestones.

Notably, unlike most other forms of progression-based goals such as player level, catalogs, and freshness, Wandercrust points can still be gained from both Private Battles and Private Jobs in Salmon Run Next Wave.

Journey 1

Hey, what's kraken? Crusty Sean here, lookin' for folks to help me as I set out for the Splatlands. That place has been SERIOUSLY heating up lately, and I wanna make sure I get a deep-fried piece of the fun. I've also heard the wilds out there are straight-up double-battered in treasure if you know where to sift. Can't ask for a juicier tip than that! Alright, time to make my debut. Wish me luck, everyone!

Journey 2

Hey, gang! I've decided that my next stop on the Wandercrust Tour will be Greater Inkopolis. I actually grew up in the area, but I haven't been back in a hot minute. So this journey will be all about self-discovery. I want to examine my soggy past and work on making my future as crispy as possible. After all, if you're not double frying, you're not trying. Right?!

Journey 3

Greasy greetings, my Wandercrusties! It's a little sad, but we're down to the last course on this journey in search of deep-fried meaning. I've still got a big appetite for adventure, so I'm going to hit as many spots as I can—and that means I'll need as many supporters as possible! For an appetizer, I'm looking to visit some of my old haunts in Greater Inkopolis, but don't fret—new and exciting locations are on the menu as well, including spicy spots in the Splatlands. Maybe even a Splatfest! Yes, I'll be musing on my crispy past, my crunchy present, and a batter future for all. Let's get to it!

Journey 4

What's up, my trusty crusty crew? You know, after I completed the Wandercrust Tour, I took some time for myself and did a lot of thinking about the future. And guess what I realized. The future is what we make of it! I thought...maybe I'll get back out on tour one day... But then I thought...why not now? What am I even waiting for? Strike while the fryer is hot, you know? So, Crusty Sean's Wandercrust Tour continues! I'm challenging myself to keep exploring, keep learning, and keep striving to be the crispiest and crustiest I can be. And you can join in! Thanks to the generous contributions of a new corporate sponsor, I'm pleased to announce that you can all ride or fry with me. With that said—let's get to it! Let's make memories before we ride off into the golden-brown sunset together.

Journey 5

I feel like my Wandercrust Tour has helped me get a panhandle on who I want to grow into as a person. Like any good meal, I needed a little more time in the oven. But now the future looks golden! Still, as I travel here and there, I really feel how fast the world moves. We're both caught in a crispy twister, with no idea where we'll land! Wherever it is, we've gotta pick ourselves up and keep going. But I can't do that without more supporters to pave the way. Sean cannot live on breadcrumbs alone! I'll be seeing all the sights, both the moldy oldies and the oil-new. Won't you pitch in to see what I'm cooking up next?!
