Splatoon 2 Update 5.0.1 Now Available (With Patch Notes)

Nintendo has released a new software update for Splatoon 2, which sees the ink-based shooter now on version 5.0.1.

This has addressed multiple issues such as players moving forward while in mid-air when swinging the Ultra Stamp, or on stages like Starfish Mainstage, Sturgeon Shipyard, Manta Maria, and Shellendorf Institute.

Splatoon 2 Update Version 5.0.1 Patch Notes

  • Changes to Multiplayer
    • Fixed an issue causing players to mistakenly move forward while in mid-air during the first swing of an Ultra Stamp when pressing and holding ZR to swing the stamp repeatedly.
    • Fixed an issue allowing players to jump further than intended when jumping at a specific time while using the Ultra Stamp.
      • These changes fix the issue of players being able to enter areas of certain stages they should have been restricted from.
    • Fixed an issue causing players with poor internet connections to not appear in the appropriate location on the screens of other players when using certain special weapons at a specific time.
    • Fixed an issue in Starfish Mainstage allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.
    • Fixed an issue in Sturgeon Shipyard allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.
    • Fixed an issue in Manta Maria allowing players to gain access to the opponent’s base via a specific grate when jumping while pressing and holding ZR to ink continuously with the Inkbrush or Octobrush.
    • Fixed an issue in Shellendorf Institute causing players to clip into the stage terrain when moving near a certain wall.
    • Fixed an issue in Shellendorf Institute occurring in Rainmaker mode allowing players to clip into a specific piece of stage terrain.
    • Fixed an issue in Camp Triggerfish that had previously allowed players to gain access to an Inkrail from an unintended direction by slightly adjusting the rail’s position.
  • Other Changes
    • Play may now be limited for players if they experience frequent connection errors while waiting for remaining players to arrive after joining a Ranked Battle match lobby.
