Splatoon – Meet the Octarian Army

May 19, 2014

Nintendo’s newest franchise, Splatoon, is now available on Wii U. We are counting down the weeks until the launch with weekly Splatoon giveaways and a steady stream of game tips and info on some of the wacky characters, weapons and game modes!

This week is all about the enemies and maps!


  • Octoling: Octolings can appear in pairs or even larger teams from time to time.

  • Octotrooper: Foot soldiers of the Octarian army. They seem to come in a variety of types, from hovercraft-riding attackers to sentries who guard specific spots!

  • Shielded Octotrooper: Octotrooper with a shield! These suckers will block any attacks from the front. Hide out for a bit and then attack from behind, or maybe try and distract them with something

Stay on your tentacles; these aren’t all the enemies you’ll encounter in Splatoon.


  • Saltpray Rig: A dangerous stage known for the large chasm between its high and low areas. Both teams will surely attempt to claim the large area on top to earn a victory from above!
