Splatoon 3 will be receiving its version 5.1.0 update tomorrow, October 17th, bringing with it a lot of tweaks to weapons and altering the Mahi-Mahi Resort Terrain. Nintendo have released the patch notes, along with the notice that the next update is planned for mid November and will add support for the upcoming Deep Cut amiibo. Here are the patch notes:

Changes to Splatfests

  • Data relating to the Splatoween Splatfest has been added.

Changes to Multiplayer

  • The terrain in Mahi-Mahi Resort has been changed in all modes.

  • Specifications for some main weapons have changed.

  • Specifications for some sub weapons have changed.
  • Specifications for some special weapons have changed.
  • Points required for some special weapons have been changed.

This update focuses on adding special Splatfest data and making tweaks to multiplayer.

We have made it easier to utilize the strengths of some main weapons and increased the options for other main weapons that fulfill similar roles.

Additionally, we made it easier to battle with main weapons that are paired with Curling Bombs.

We have also made adjustments to some special weapons. We adjusted the amount of damage that the Killer Wail 5.1 deals to compensate for the fact that many players are now used to dodging it. For the Kraken Royale, we made adjustments to give players additional options outside of a charge attack. For the Trizooka, we made it more difficult to splat opponents by accident, while preserving the ability for players to splat opponents by aiming well and firing two consecutive shots. For Tenta Missiles, we made adjustments to reduce instances where players still took damage even if they took measures to evade enemy missiles.

We plan on releasing the next patch around the middle of November to add Deep Cut amiibo data.
