These People Are Really, Really Good At Splatoon

Splatoon is my new thing. Super short games, super rewarding, surprisingly deep. It kinda corrects all the things I dislike about playing shooters online. But the other day I openly asked myself: where are all the videos of people doing insane things in Splatoon? Where are the MONTAGES?

So I went looking for them. Here's what I found.

To be honest? I didn't find too much. Probably because Splatoon is on the Wii U and it's pretty difficult to upload gaming footage on the Wii U without the proper equipment. Still, I managed to dig out some interesting stuff. Here is a lot of footage of people being really good at Splatoon.

I really want to be home playing Splatoon right now.


This is just some generally slick shit. That horrible music tho...


This player is next level tricky when it comes to those mine-paint things. I hate these things.


Controversial opinion: the paint rollers are the noob cannons of the Splatoon universe. Nothing makes me happier than slaying these chumps. That said, this montage is set to 'Rollin'' y Limp Bizkit and that's just too hilarious to ignore.


This video has the most obnoxious music ever. But this guy is good.


This is probably the closest I've seen to the traditional Call of Duty MLG 420 No Scope style montage. It's kinda funny. BUT GODDAMN ROLLER NOOBS.


Have I missed any good ones? Drop them in the comments below.

    My connection maxes out at 300kb/s when downloading. Would it handle this?

      I've noticed the threshold for upload is about 0.4mbps (50kB/s). I've got two connections at two locations which rest on the cusp of this speed, and so fluctuate between perfect play and horrendous lag monster (we're talking 10 second lag). This was later verified by atificual limitation at a third site.

      If your upload is better than that It's very, very good.

      The download speed is less of an issue because of the very nature of Adsl. 300 is theoretically plenty, but it doesn't bode well for your upload speed.

    I love this game so much. But I'm starting to see players treating this like it's an everyday shooter. Yes, it helps to take out people. But this is not CoD. Doing nothing but sniper, camp and getting a high kill count is not what this game is about.

      This frustrates me so much.
      I played a game where I was the only person covering ground. The only one. It's so annoying. I wish I could yell at them. Oh well, more points for me =/

        So have I. I was in a game few nights ago where all my team did nothing but hide in ink and just snipper out the other team.

          But at least they suffer for it! There is no reward to playing like CoD, they're just missing out on cash and xp for more clothes.

            Exactly. That makes no sense. All it ends up doing is frustrating everyone =/

              I learned long ago that getting frustrated by pub games is entirely pointless, it's why I find ranked matches entirely useless until teams can be formed. I play it for variety, but the rank itself is meaningless.

              Chillax people, treat the game like 2fort in TF2 and just focus on the hats.

      Even more frustrating is playing ranked then seeing team mates down on the map running around to the unclaimed areas and painting them all instead of coming to help secure the splat zone.

      I like to think I throw in a good balance of being a campy sniper and contributing ground coverage though :P

    But what's their high score in Bust-A-Move 2 Arcade Edition?

    Yep, Splatoon is a seriously good idea for a game that I reckon has been pulled off probably 80% of could potentially have been.

    Just little things like being able to change your weapon during a game would be nice.

    That said, I've been known to sit on Splatoon playing for either 5 minutes or 2 hours.

    Also, I wish they'd count wall coverage towards the final score. I feel this would really change the feel of a game to focus more on painting than killing.

    As someone who focuses on ground coverage rather than straight up kills, these videos greatly frustrate me. I mean, a kill - err, splat - in this game is very satisfying, but just watching all these guys walk or swim straight past huge patches of unpainted turf makes me want to punch a baby or something.

    It seems more like the opponents are really, really bad.

    I would rack up 20+ kills when starting ranked mode on C- rank.

    To be fair though, some chumps are super good at using rollers, especially the dynamo ones that take some time to flick paint where they can position and time themselves well enough to chain a whole tonne of kills (this is ranked anyway, where thats more crucial)

    This one is pretty epic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxMUL02gUqM&app=desktop
