What are Conch Shells Used for

Conch shells are limited currencies that are used for two main reasons. It is used during the Splatfest events to tally which team has the most shells. The team that has the most shells wins the Splatfest. On the other side, Conch shells are also used to purchase several items at a unique merchant. But once the Splatfest events are finished, these earned Shells also disappear. So, make sure to use them all before the event ends.

Once you have collected enough shells, head over to the Lobby to find Shell-out Machine. You can use the Cash or Conch shells to purchase several in-game items and resources.
