Watch Splatoon 2’s Salmon Run in action

Friends who splat together...

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

Splatoon 2’s local co-op mode, Salmon Run, is a heck of a lot of fun.

In Salmon Run, up to four players withstand hordes of enemies and bosses, with the goal of gathering a quota of salmon eggs. We took it for a spin with three players—on three Nintendo Switches, since you won’t find any split-screen co-op here.

Watch us splat our foes in the gameplay video above. Salmon Run’s sprawling levels and nefarious bosses require a lot of communication to beat, and we found it’s best to diversify your weapons. The Splatling Gun is a must-have. Also, make sure at least one of you is good at throwing paint bombs.

You can also read the full review of Splatoon 2, including reviewer Chelsea Stark’s impressions of Salmon Run.

There’s more Splatoon 2 gameplay on our YouTube channel. Check out the new Splat Dualie guns below, in Turf War mode:

And here’s the Aerospray MG used in Turf War on the beloved Moray Towers:

Splatoon 2 will come out on July 21 for the Nintendo Switch.
