Splatoon 2 update out now (version 1.4.1)

Posted on October 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Following up on last week’s update, Splatoon 2 has received another patch. It’s now at version 1.4.1.

It was sort of expected, but today’s update isn’t too significant. Instead of adding new functionality and making adjustments to elements like weapons, this is mainly about addressing a few issues.

Here are today’s patch notes:

  • Fixed an issue allowing Brella weapons used by opponents to shoot while their umbrellas remained open.
  • Fixed an issue allowing players using the Goo Tuber to store a charged shot indefinitely by charging briefly, immediately becoming a squid, then keeping the charge as long as ZL wasn’t released.
  • Fixed an issue allowing player to pass through the squid barrier surrounding the spawn points on Snapper Canal.

Splatoon 2 will have another update in November. That patch will be much more significant.

    That still doesnt change the fact that the scopes can hold a charge, but a weapon that in most other games, can spin its barrel, cant hold a charge (Splatlings) Literally the most useless weapons in the game right now. I can forgive the nerfing of the baller, but the buff on all the scopes werent needed.

          Chargers can hold chargers not scopes.

    This game drastically needs more stages. I love this game but I wanted new levels.

    I want the japaneses players to come back in the new update. Expect matches in the lobby is too frustrating.

      I agree. I’m thinking I like Splatoon better than Splatoon 2 for a few small details, playing against Japanese players being the biggest. Splatoon had better motion aiming because the Wii U Gamepad is wider, giving you slightly more degrees of precise motion aiming. My only other complaint is that there is no weapon to match the orange Zapper with the sprinkler sub-weapon, which sucks, because it means my weapon of choice seems absent in Splatoon 2.

          I was looking at the list of weapons and thinking that might be the case last night. I’ll try it.
