This guide will show you How to Perform Basic Squid Rolling in Splatoon 3.

Basic Squid Rolling Guide in Splatoon 3

Basic Squid Rolling is one of the newest additions to movement in Splatoon 3. This is a form that turns the player into a squid to move around faster and move freely as long as they are in an ink of their team’s color.

While it may sound like a small change, this plays a big role in influencing how players transition between platforms. This movement can also be used to avoid damage from enemy attacks.

If you want to perform a successful Basic Squid Rolling, you need to follow a few steps.

Step 1:

  • Start by swimming through a pool of ink in Splatoon 3.
  • Build Enough momentum for the splashing particle effects to be shown behind the Squid Kid’s model.

Step 2:

  • After reaching the max speed, move the L Stick in the opposite direction while also pressing the B Button to execute a Squid Roll in Splatoon 3.
  • This action requires some timing skills since players must ensure their character has attained full acceleration with their Inkling or Octoling.

Step 3:

  • The action can be performed multiple times without limit as long as players have picked up enough momentum while swimming.
  • If the player character is not moving fast enough, the Squid Kid will still jump out in the opposite direction but at a much slower pace and short distance.
  • Furthermore, the weapon damage negation from enemy ink will not be in effect.
