Nintendo released their latest update to
on October 25. While the update brought balance adjustments, network improvements, and issues fixes for weapons (related article) there were soon reports on social media of a new bug that caused the counter in Rainmaker to immediately drop to 1.
Rainmaker is one of the modes that can exist enjoyed in
Splatoon 3’s Chaos Battles. Players are split into 2 teams of 4 and there’s a weapon called the Rainmaker placed in the middle of the map for players to battle over. The team that brings the Rainmaker to the goal well-nigh the enemy team’southward base wins.
Every bit you carry the Rainmaker deeper into enemy territory, a counter starting at 100 decreases depending on how far y’all advance. Whichever squad brings the Rainmaker to their goal, which is when the counter reaches 0, or the team that is closer to 0 when the friction match timer ends is the winner.
The bug that was discovered after the update causes this counter to immediately drop to 1. In Rainmaker, at that place are checkpoints between the center of the phase and the enemy’s goal. The Rainmaker must be placed on i of these checkpoints before reaching the goal, just this issues appears to happen nether certain weather virtually checkpoints.
When checking footage of the numerous reports of the problems on social media, nosotros tin meet they all occur at a checkpoint. They all bear witness the counter dropping to ane after breaking through a checkpoint, busting the Rainmaker’due south shield, and grabbing the Rainmaker once again.
Those who have reported the bug are also posting Battle Replays to Twitter. When looking at these replays in the game, around the time an opponent tries to option upward the Rainmaker when the bug occurs, they begin to motion effectually like they’re lagging. Besides the numerous reports from players, I (the original author of this article) was able to confirm it for myself in the Battle Replays.
This is a game breaking event for Rainmaker. Many matches come up down to slowly pushing through enemy territory with the counter determining who won. However, this problems can crusade the tide of battle to immediately plough. Your team could be about to win, but if the bug occurs for the opposing squad, they’ve suddenly turned the tables.
Fortunately, Nintendo is enlightened of the issue and stated that they volition release an update soon to fix it. However, Rainmaker has been temporarily removed from the Chaos Battle rotation.
