Private Battle

Private Battle is a mode where you can create and secure the lobby for yourselves, and invite your friends to join the battle.

  • Turf War: A mode consisting of four players in two teams. The team with the highest ink coverage after three minutes wins the match.
  • Splat Zones: A mode where two teams fight over a section of the map and try to cover it in their color ink. Whichever team holds on to the section the longest or deducts all of their opponent's time wins.
  • Tower Control: A mode with two teams race to the center where they can find a tower. When they stand on top of it, the tower slowly moves toward enemy territory. Whoever pushes the tower farthest of to their team's goal wins.
  • Rainmaker: A mode with two teams race to get a hold of the Rainmaker, a weapon capable of firing ink tornadoes. The goal is to take the Rainmaker and make your way to the goal pillar at your enemy's base. Whoever pushes places the Rainmaker upon the goal or gets closest wins.

Squad Battle

Squad Battle

Squad Battle is a mode where players can participate in Ranked Battle rule sets with friends, rather than being teamed up with other players through a random selection.

  • Twin Squad Battle: You can recruit a friend to form a team of two. Friends will always play on the same team with another (random) two player team, battling other squads.
  • Quad Squad Battle: You can recruit three friends to form a team of four. Friends will always play on the same team, battling against another squad.
  • Tri Squad Battle: This mode allows three player teams to battle against four player squads at random.  It is recommended for skilled players.

Ranked Battle

Ranked Battle is unlocked once the player has reached level 10. The ranked battle modes require a higher level of strategy compared to turf war, and wins and losses will be counted toward players' ranks. Players begin with a 'C-' rating, but are able to improve and regress their ranks based on how well they perform.

Splat Zones

  • Splat Zones: A mode in which two teams try to cover a boxed area of the map in their ink.  Holding all zones reduces your team's timer, with a penalty for losing all zones to your opponents.  First to zero or the lowest timer at five minutes wins.
  • Tower Control: A mode where two teams race to a central tower. When they stand on top of it, the tower slowly moves toward enemy territory.  The team that pushes the tower farthest to their goal wins.
  • Rainmaker: A mode where two teams race to get ahold of the Rainmaker, a weapon capable of firing ink tornadoes (think unlimited, chargable Inkzooka). The goal is to take the Rainmaker to the goal pillar at your enemy's base. Whoever pushes places the Rainmaker upon the goal or gets closest in five minutes wins.
