Hammerhead Bridge is a level where layers matter. Like the Kelp Dome, Splatoon players will be able to choose between taking the high ground or lurking below. Each area will have benefits. Being higher up allows for a better vantage point, but also relies on a series of grates. This means few areas to recharge. The low ground has plenty of area to cover and refuel, but also could leave someone vulnerable to an attack from above.


The Hammerhead Bridge map will be available to play in Turf War and Ranked modes after Splatoon updates tonight. This add-on comes ahead of the arts and science Splatfest scheduled for North America on September 18.
