New Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Reward is the Astro Helm

Now that December 2022's begun, Splatoon 3 players can earn the new Salmon Run Astro Helm reward

There’s once again a reason to work for Grizzco. Salmon Run updated with a new reward in Splatoon 3, adding the Astro Helm to the collection. If you get 200 Grizzco Points while playing through the horde mode, you’ll get one piece of the showcased gear.

After you earn the Astro Helm reward for playing Salmon Run in Splatoon 3, you will find it in the Headgear section on the equipment page. The item will arrive with ability slots already filled. However, each time you earn one by playing, it could feature different skills. Since you can only own one of these items at a time, earning additional ones will allow someone to choose which version to keep. (You will get ability chunks in exchange for the one you don’t pick.) Also, as the Astro Helm name suggests, it looks like a helmet someone flying a space ship would wear.

This is the fourth Salmon Run reward to be offered in the game. When Splatoon 3 launched, people could earn a Bream-Brim Cap. The Lo-Vis Visor came up at the beginning of October 2022. Throughout November 2022, people could earn the Brain Strainer helmet. So far, all rewards involved new headgear.

Splatoon 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch, and people can get the Astro Helm as a Salmon Run reward in December 2022.
