New update for Splatoon 2 includes changes to Salmon Run, Rank, weapons and more


Version 2.3.0 now live

Nintendo have delivered the latest update to their messy, messy shooter Splatoon 2. The new patch, which is live right now, features a huge amount of tweaks and fixes to various game modes, both single player and competitive.

Although many changes are designed to stamp out minor, irritating issues across the board, there has also been a slight rework of the game's ranking system, as well as changes to Splat Zones on certain maps and the behaviour and specifications of some of the game's ink-blasting arsenal of weapons.

The complete patch notes can be found right here on the official site. Just select the 2.3.0 drop-down menu. You might want to grab yourself a drink and snack before you settle in for the read. It's a doozy.

Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
