Splatoon 2’s Latest Update Fixes Clam Blitz Issues


clam blitz


Clam Blitz is Splatoon 2’s latest competitive game mode and was added in the version 2.1.0 update. However, there were a few errors being encountered as people tried to collect enough clams to make a Power Clam enter the field. Nintendo has just updated the game to 2.1.1, fixing a major issue where Clam Blitz’ overtime would end when the barrier timer activated by the losing team ran out. This, an Inkjet damage issue, and a problem with Highest League Power not updating have all been fixed.


Here is the full list of version 2.1.1 changes for Splatoon 2.


  • Changes to Multiplayer
    • Fixed an issue in Clam Blitz mode where overtime would mistakenly end too soon when the barrier timer expired.
      • This occurred when the losing team activated the barrier timer and then took the lead, and the barrier remained open until the match timer reached zero.
    • Fixed an issue where hitting an opponent standing on particular stage features with direct hits from the Inkjet special occasionally caused the shots to not explode or deliver damage to the opponent.
    • We have fixed an issue getting into landforms when executing super jump from specific location to specific location in Port Mackerel.
  • Changes to League Battle
    • Fixed an issue where immediately after a team’s Highest League Power was updated, if results could not be uploaded due to a poor network connection or other reasons, that Highest League Power was not reflected in the online ranking list until Highest League Power was updated again.
  • Other Changes
    • Fixed an issue preventing weapon test targets in certain locations from taking damage from an Ink Storm.


Splatoon 2 is available for the Nintendo Switch.
