We Respect This Splatoon 2 Player's Dedication To Inking Their Spawn

We have often espoused the virtues of inking your spawn in Splatoon 2's Turf War mode, but rarely do you see dedication like player "Giokiller" exhibited in one match.

Clipped by Twitch streamer HeyItsBigfoot during a regular match, Giokiller seemed hellbent on not just generally inking the spawn, but covering every square inch. It's a little cathartic to watch every blot of uncovered surface area gradually painted over in pink.

Though this certainly merits a discussion about securing the middle area of the arena and then covering your spawn, I can't begrudge Giokiller of a job well done. That spawn coverage is nigh immaculate. HeyItsBigfoot noted in a reddit post of the clip that their team went on to win 51.3 per cent to 44.1.

Maybe it's time to upgrade to an AeroSpray for a little more efficient ink coverage, though. Either way, keep doing you Giokiller. Spawns are better off for it.


    This is not what wins a match. Your team should split in 4 different directions, giving good coverage and then converge on the middle of the match to push the other team back. Covering their ink gives you twice as much territory as inking blank areas. When you get splatted, check the map and plan to go past any big patches missed in the initial run. After that, study the map and jump to someone a bit back from the front line and join the fray.

      You seem like you'd be a real hit at parties...

      "It has come to my attention you've all been having fun INCORRECTLY! So gather round and let me TELL you how you're supposed to have fun!"

        Putting some better information out there. I'd be annoyed if I was playing with this guy on my team. He def cost several matches.
