Most Annoying Things in Splatoon 2

I love this game, but there are some annoyances that are absolutely worth making a Top Ten List about.

The Top Ten

1 Being against a really good sniper

Every time I try to splat a sniper, the sniper SPLATS ME INSTEAD!

I only beaten one of those thing ONCE! And I’m on level 36!

Chargers are still as OP as ever. - mattstat716

You can't ink well

2 Incompetent Teammates
3 Squidbaggers

Honestly makes you an easier target

Report them. - mattstat716

4 Unstable Connection

Yes I agree. But paying to play online just kinda sucks the fun. Nintendo if your reading this please make a change because I love switch but switch online just ruins this

Why can’t I play a single game of ranked without one of my teammates disconnecting?!

Come on Nintendo! If you are going to make us pay for online play now, I should be able to expect a stable connection! - Atham

I would rather just have online free. I feel like paying for online ruined Splatoon 2. - Videogamesgal

I could play Single Player but I have no reason to do so because I completed every level with every weapon. - thunderstar1124

5 Laggy players

This is so bad!

6 Instant death when superjumping to a teammate

If you die from that, that's your fault for not paying attention to the map. Never jump to a teammate surrounded by enemy ink. Unless you have a Splashdown. - TheYoshiOverlord

Drop roller, splashdown, ninja jump, etc... - mattstat716

7 People who only choose a Splatfest side because Marina is on that side

Only Marina's team gets the points for most votes EVERY Splatfest. The Splatfests are rigged, but Pearl's team suddenly wins at the end of the Splatfest.

The least popular side is usually the winner, so do not see why everyone goes for Marina - CheesyNachos

This is what legit rigs the splatfests in pearl's favor. - mattstat716

Very true - PSS

8 Pearl and Marina's unskippable intro comes up every single time you boot up the game

I don't care about the current battle stages, Marina. Just speed it up.
We can speed up Sheldon's speech, so why not turn this on for the intro, too? It's that easy!
- Anonymous


True - PSS

I just want to play the game -_- - mattstat716

9 Squid Parties on Regular Battles

Go play a different game

Feel free to do so on Private Battles, BUT NOWHERE ELSE PLEASE! - thunderstar1124

But squid parties are the best. Don't take regular battles so seriously. -_-

10 Aerospray users everywhere

Toned down a bit with recent updates. - mattstat716

The Contenders

11 Activating the Inkjet is suicide

Whenever I activate this Special Weapon, Brush mains always take me down as SOON as I do it.

Not particularly, you can swim up to someone, launch, shoot, and pretty much OHKO them. - mattstat716

Not to mention that Sloshers have an incredibly easy advantage over them - thunderstar1124

You’ve got to move way more or lure you enemies. Being the target isn’t always a bad thing. - PSS

12 N’Zap Users Everywhere

Yeah I never make it to safety without even ONE blob of ink from an N-zap 89...the thing is if your team has no n-zap 89s but the opposing team has all members with an N-zap 89...your screwed

Nerf the orange n-zap.
(the 89, I think? - mattstat716

This became apparent when the N’Zap ‘89 was added into the game. Now it’s impossible to go into a match without at least one person using one. And yes I will admit that the N’Zap ‘89 is my guilty pleasure weapon. - thunderstar1124

13 Bad drawing posts

Not a very good reason, the plaza is filled with pretty good art mostly.
Daily pearl, marina, callie, marie, etc. posts. - mattstat716

14 The Octobrush is Overpowered

Anybody with a damn brain knows that this weapon is overpowered and needs to be nerfed. - FirelordZuko

This is the most overused weapon on Ranked Battles. - thunderstar1124

Too much range with too much damage.
Might as well be a OHKO with that range.
Also blinds you from seeing the field. - mattstat716

This weapon is the worst. If you use this, you suck.

15 Bad Salmon Run Coworkers

Bad salmon run coworkers are so irritating. I hate it when I have to respawn everyone

Oh wow...this is so true! Once I was playing salmon run,I had a really bad teammate that loved to squidbag, if that wasn't enough...he would distract people when they are busy collecting golden eggs, and he even lets the salmonids splat him! worst of all...thanks to his efforts...I'm ALL THE WAY BACK TO APPRENTICE! Honestly I could go on!

16 Almost every Turf War match has a teammate that disconnects

Not really. - mattstat716

17 Splashdown kinda sucks

Pretty gimmicky, to be honest. - mattstat716

Personally it’s my favorite special - thunderstar1124

18 There is practically no way to win against an entire team of Roller-type weapons

you know

outrange them.
"woah, technology! "... - mattstat716

19 Sploosh-O-Matic Spawncampers

I hate it when they use their curling bomb to penetrate your base - thunderstar1124

20 Japanese Snipers who are incapable of missing their shots
21 Tenta-Missile spammers

Having is fine, but when a person has max charge Up or multiple people with the Tenta Missles, they are just must annoying.

Tenta Missiles scare your enemies away, but it's just plain annoying if they are in their own spawn. Speaking of, using Tenta Missiles right whenever your opponent spawns is kind of pointless for 2 reasons:
1- Since they're in their spawn point then the enemy could just move forward.
2-You're notified that the Missiles are launched right away, however the Missiles take longer to reach the further away you are, making it even easier to avoid. - Qryzx

22 WUT Members

It stands for “Woomy United Today”. It’s a squid party organization created by a YouTuber with good intentions, but now they’re just a bunch of trolls.

€”[WUT]Woomy” is an extremely overused nickname. Come on, think of something original! - FirelordZuko

23 You can only play Salmon Run at certain times

I understand why they did this. - mattstat716

24 Ninja-Splatters

There are multiple ways to counter them. - PSS

I guess you just can't beat 'em!

...Are we talking campers or...? - mattstat716

25 Being stuck in Lobby Purgatory

Ugh, GL playing in mornings or very late at night... - mattstat716

26 People who are so focused on getting kills

But holding back the enemy team matters... - mattstat716

27 E-Liter tryhards

Not as OP now. - mattstat716

It’s not because of how op it is, it’s because many people who use it ignore the objective and try to get kills - thunderstar1124

28 Having a team of people who suck with chargers causing you to lose the match

Charger are the worst weapon type for turf war & salmon run, ranked, is a different story. - PSS

Well if they suck, yes, but I used the Firefin Splat Charger and got 1000 points in a Turf war.

Chargers + Turf = Failure - mattstat716

29 Players who use the Octobrush on Ranked Battles

How can an Octobrush or an Inkbrush player beat me while I have a SHOOTER-TYPE?!

Getting a high Rank only using the Octobrush does not give you any bragging rights. - thunderstar1124

Can we PLEASE nerf the octobrush now?! - mattstat716

This weapon takes no skill. I’ve used it before on Ranked Battles, and I won. I was hardly even trying. - FirelordZuko

30 Constant Random Friend-Requests

I enjoy this

31 Some weapons just straight up have an unfair advantage over others

It’s bs that the Octobrush outranges some SHOOTERS. - FirelordZuko

32 Chargers on Turf Wars

It’s impossible to ink a lot of turf if there is a good sniper on the other team, and half of my losses in Turf Wars are from having incompetent sniper wannabes on my team. - thunderstar1124

33 Weapons with excessive range are a pain to deal with
34 Callie turned evil.

Splatoon 2's single player ruined the whole game. - Neinwott

35 Bad Teammates in Splatfests

I hate it when the opposing team makes a comeback right after mines had the advantage throughout HALF of the battle.

During the Raph vs. Leo Splatfest, I had a teammate who was so stupid that he placed a Squid Beacon on THE SPAWNING POINT.

36 Camping Rollers

All rollers (except for the Dynamo and Inkbrush) are ridiculously cheap with camping as you can just pop up out of nowhere and get an easy Splat on your opponents. - thunderstar1124

37 Dynamo Rollers

I remember when Dynamo Rollers were useless back in Splatoon. They used to be REALLY SLOW at flinging ink, but they became a little faster in Splatoon 2.

Why did Nintendo have to buff them if they were already over powered?!

May not be as op as in the first game but they’re still an absolute nightmare to deal with - thunderstar1124

38 Players who are covering turf that you’re trying to cover

This can get incredibly annoying if you’re using a roller - thunderstar1124

39 Spawn Campers
40 Teammates who don't do objectives

THIS IS SO TRUE IT HURTS. - mattstat716

41 Being against someone who's really good with the Splat Roller

I’m a lot better with it now, so haha. - thunderstar1124

Heheheh, might've been me. Rolling is my specialty! ~

Sorry, not sorry. - mattstat716

42 Blasters

Every time someone with a regular Blaster (the slow-shooting kind) gets me while I TRY to escape from them.

I should not be OHKO'd in an instant. No weapon does that with that large of a hitbox, not even chargers. - mattstat716

43 Teammates who won’t carry their weight in Ranked Battles

Thankfully I got to S rank for Rainmaker, and the teams are WAY better there. - mattstat716

44 Completely unavoidable deaths from Bomb Rushes
45 When your teammates aren’t there when you need them the most

Some ditch your team at the last minute as soon as the battle starts. Even in Salmon Run.

46 Salmon Run super bonuses that are just ability chunks

I work Salmon Run shifts for Crusty Sean tickets, NOT CLOTHING - thunderstar1124

I work Salmon Run shifts for clothing, drink and EXP tickets, along with ability chunks.
NOT MONEY TICKETS. - mattstat716

47 Teammates who don’t ink their spawn

Okay, I have to rant about this.
This isn't me ranting about teammates who don't do it, its about teammates who are so stupid that they do it right at the start.
You're supposed to capture mid first, ink spawn after you die, and THEN use your special you just charged up from inking spawn to help push into their side. This makes Splashdown an actually viable special, but no... everyone inks spawns and takes an entire minute to reach mid, then ends up dying, not having any special charge, and having the enemy invade the base.

This is a S T U P I D bandwagon you have all jumped on. - mattstat716

But what if you charge in, end up securing the area, but forget to ink your spawn? If your opponent has bomb rush at the end and completely covers the middle, then there's no turf behind you to maintain your score. - Qryzx

This can get annoying on maps like Moray Towers and Port Mackerel - thunderstar1124

48 Splatfest Servers are atrocious

Communication errors almost every match - thunderstar1124

49 The game punishes you for getting communication errors

I am not wasting any money over online battle interaction penalties!

Stop leaving matches then. - mattstat716

50 When you’re doing really well one round but you lose anyway because of bad teammates
