You can join a turf war from the lobby. The lobby is also the place from where you can play Anarchy battles.

  1. While in Splatsville look for the tall building that has two yellow crossing arrows for its logo. Walk inside it.
  2. Here you can find the option Regular Battle “Hop into a Turf War battle”.
    • You can use the directional buttons to change the mode from solo.
    • Depending on your level you can change the different battle options. Private Battle is another option you can use to invite and play with friends, but it becomes available after you try a few regular battles.
    • On the right side of the screen you can check the stages you can play in. You can also press the minus button to check the rules.
  3. Click on the Regular battle and the game gives you a confirmation popup. Once 8 players have joined the battle can start.
  4. Here, click on the Yeah button.

Wait for the other 7 players to join and once they do you can start playing Turf War.

How to Win Turf War

You can win Turf war by painting the map with the ink of your color and covering as much area as possible. While this is the basic goal of this mode, here are a few tricks that can make you win games easily.

  • Paint your base: Painting your base is the best way to start improving your chances to secure the win. When the game starts you might choose to start battling right away. But if the enemy kills you you lose the area you inked. So you should first ink your base to get cover as much area as you can. This might come in handy when the score tallies at the end, and both teams are close in terms of the inked area. So having your base inked might give you an advantage.
  • Look Fresh: The clothes you wear give you certain abilities that can act as passive buff. These can be advantageous like faster ink refill, more movement speed, and more. No wonder the game tells you to pay attention to your fashion. Make sure you check the stat boosts your clothes give you and use the weapons accordingly.
  • Try different weapons: You might have your hands set on a weapon but you shouldn’t fixate on it. There are more than 50 weapons in the game so you might be surprised when you find that some might work better for you than the one you use.
