O.R.C.A. describing the level

What Caused the Big Bang? YOU! is the 13th level in Splatoon 3's story mode, Return of the Mammalians.


To pass this level the player must break every target block in one shot, using the E-liter 4K or the E-liter 4K Scope.


Next to Octopods at Rest Tend to FLIP OUT!, you can see another kettle. That kettle is this level.


Checkpoint 1

The course consists of a platform on which the player will stand and a spinning apparatus. In the center of the apparatus are the target blocks and in the middle of the target blocks is a Balloon Fish. The player must shoot and detonate the Balloon Fish to destroy the target blocks at the right time to pass the level. If the player does not hit the Balloon Fish, they will fail.
