RUMOR - Splatoon 2 datamine reveals possible new mode, weapons, and more

- new ranked game mode titled Vrc (Rocket)
- has three components: Obj_VictoryRocket, Obj_VictoryRocketNozzle, and Obj_VictoryRocketNode
- VictoryRocketNozzle is able to be equipped by the player
- it is defined as a special weapon like the Rainmaker
- unique bullet type (BulletVictoryRocket) defined for it as well
- VictoryRocketNozzle has been set to have the same arc type as the Sting Ray
- Obj_VictoryRocketNozzle has the model of a Rainmaker, which might be temporary
- in a file that defines damage rates for various inanimate objects, there is an entry for Obj_VictoryRocket
- Obj_VictoryRocketNode might be used as a way for the game to navigate an actor/object through the stag
- Nintendo left a map layout file in the game which defines a testing version of The Reef
- this contains the necessary objects for this mode to run
- Obj_VictoryRocket is placed in an odd position, as it is floating in the air
- Obj_VictoryRocketNode objects are placed throughout the map, with one erroneously placed far below the playable area
- parameters/states for this mode include:

- another possibly scrapped Ranked game mode found in the testing version of The Reef
- on top of the bridge in the middle of the stage, there is an object called Obj_VictoryBall
- there are additional objects placed TestObj_Lft_VBallGoal placed in one team's spawn area as well
- AirBall is how Nintendo refers to the balloons in single player and in Battle Dojo
- Ball could be a balloon-related game mode
- Nintendo uses AquaBall, InkBall, along with several other items that do not have any relationship to balloons
- more evidence of playable Octolings, including an unused icon that pertains to single player
- possibly scrapped special weapon named Bazooka, which does not related to the Inkzooka

This is exciting, more evidence of Octolings and a new ranked mode! I love the pace of updates and releases in Splatoon 2, been playing it over 100 hours and expect to play much more, my 2nd favorite game on the Switch so far!
