Splatoon 2 Update Version 5.0.1 Is Live

There’s a lot of fixes.


Splatoon 2 might be done in terms of Splatfests and content updates, but that doesn’t mean Nintendo aren’t making tweaks behind the scenes to ensure the game plays at its best.

With that in mind, a new update for the game is now live and it squashes a whole bunch of bugs, as well as making a slight tweak to ensure there’s less disruption to competitive play.

Here’s the full patch notes:

Changes to Multiplayer

  • Fixed an issue causing players to mistakenly move forward while in mid-air during the first swing of an Ultra Stamp when pressing and holding ZR to swing the stamp repeatedly.

  • Fixed an issue allowing players to jump further than intended when jumping at a specific time while using the Ultra Stamp.

  • Fixed an issue causing players with poor internet connections to not appear in the appropriate location on the screens of other players when using certain special weapons at a specific time.

  • Fixed an issue in Starfish Mainstage allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.

  • Fixed an issue in Sturgeon Shipyard allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.

  • Fixed an issue in Manta Maria allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.

  • Fixed an issue in Shellendorf Institute causing players to clip into the stage terrain when moving near a certain wall.

  • Fixed an issue in Shellendorf Institute occurring in Rainmaker mode allowing players to clip into a specific piece of stage terrain.

  • Fixed an issue in Camp Triggerfish that had previously allowed players to gain access to an Inkrail from an unintended direction by slightly adjusting the rail’s position.

  • These changes fix the issue of players being able to enter areas of certain stages they should have been restricted from.

Other Changes

  • Play may now be limited for players if they experience frequent connection errors while waiting for remaining players to arrive after joining a Ranked Battle match lobby.
